Best Ever Ham & Cheese Sliders
Ham & Cheese Sliders are great to make any time

Do you want a meal or snack that can be right handy, pulled out and put together anytime of the day, or late night with any trouble at all? These ingredients are easy to have and inexpensive, kids can make these up, you can help with the oven if they are younger, and they aren’t sweets, so they satisfy and are YUMMY!   

I’m sure you’ve seen lots of recipes for these ham and cheese sliders, as they are all the rage right now. 

Served warm out of the oven on delicious slightly sweet rolls, or any type you’d like.  A savory or regular one would be amazing too.

I think you will love mine.  I created a special light base of my own special mustard sauce that goes perfectly with the ham and cheese.  Then yummy melted cheese holds it all together scrumptiously. And a poppy seed dressing is draped over the top for extra scrumptiousness. 

This really hits the spot for an easy meal to take to a neighbor or friend who could use a night off.  Or it can be easily doubled or even tripled – or more -for a crowd. 

In fact, you can make these in the morning for dinner, just don’t do the last step until you are ready to pop them into the oven.  Hope you enjoy my version of the very popular Hot Ham & Cheese Sliders.
