The Shady Porch: Baked Ham & Swiss Sliders

Baked Ham & Swiss Sliders

We are enjoying this (mostly) warm early fall weather, and a successful season for our favorite Game Day team. Our Game Day menu is nearly as fun, for me, as the actual game. I love finding new recipes, and, recently, I decided to try my hand at a version of the Kings Hawaiian Ham and Swiss Sliders. Sliders just seemed like the perfect Game Day fare and I was not wrong. The first batch, while quite successful in the prep and presentation areas, was not a flavor favorite... the original poppy seed dressing took away from the savory ham and cheese; the second attempt was a resounding victory...I made a brown sugar, butter, and yellow mustard dressing that added a sweet zing that took the treat from tasty to special. These Baked Ham & Swiss Sliders will be a reoccurring item in our future Game Day celebrations.
Baked Ham & Swiss Sliders


Ingredients:
1 pkg slider buns
1 pkg of thin sliced deli-style ham
Dijon mustard, for spreading
1 pkg Swiss cheese

For topping-
2 T. Yellow mustard
2 T. Brown sugar (we used Splenda Brown Sugar blend)
1/4 cup melted butter

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Open the slider buns and apply Dijon mustard to the tops and bottoms. Place the bottoms in a 9x13 casserole dish as you add the Dijon.
3. Add a slice of ham to each slider bottom (fold them to make them fit).

7. In a small measuring cup, melt 1/4 cup of butter in microwave. Add brown sugar and regular yellow mustard to the butter and whisk together. Now brush the mixture over the tops of the buns.
8. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted. The tops will be nicely browned and crisp.
