What’s in the secret sauce?

We call it the secret sauce because it’s what makes these sliders taste AMAZING. Butter, Dijon mustard, onion, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce paired with ham and Swiss take this sandwich to the next level.

Can I make ham and cheese sliders ahead of time?

Yes! These work wonderfully to prep ahead. Simply assemble and store in the fridge until you are ready to bake. You can also make these ham and cheese sliders as a freezer meal! Assemble, freeze in an air-tight container, thaw, and bake according to the directions. This recipe is a great recipe to have in your meal-planning rotation for those busy nights when you need something on the table with little to no prep.

Baked ham and cheese sliders

Tools You’ll Need

  • 9×13″ baking dish

Ingredients

Ham and cheese sliders ingredients

  • Mini sandwich buns – Looking for a great homemade slider bun? We used our Whole Wheat Hamburger Bun recipe shaped into mini sliders, as described in the recipe notes.
  • Thinly sliced/shaved deli ham – For fresher, higher quality meat, look for deli meat from your local butcher shop. This is where I source our deli meat, and there is a huge difference in texture/flavor, not to mention less additives and preservatives than what you find in the grocery aisles. I’ll purchase 3-5 lbs at a time and freeze some in smaller packages so we can always have some hand when we need it. (Like when I want to whip up these ham and cheese sliders!)
  • Sliced Swiss cheese – Can also substitute with mozzarella, depending on your preference.
  • Butter, melted
  • Dijon mustard
  • Brown sugar
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Onion powder

Step 1:
Preheat oven to 350º. Grease a 9×13″ baking dish.
