Ingredients

Sliders

  • 12 Hawaiian rolls
  • 4 ounces ham I prefer thinly sliced lunchmeat
  • 4 ounces turkey I prefer thinly sliced lunchmeat
  • 12 slices Swiss cheese thinly sliced
  • 2 ounces bacon bits
  • 1/4 cup ranch dressing

Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard
  • 1/4 cup crushed pineapple with juice

Instructions

Sliders

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Use a non-stick liner on a baking sheet or line a 9x13 with aluminum foil and spray with a non-stick cooking spray.
  • Cut Hawaiian rolls in half and toast if desired. Spread ranch evenly over the bottom rolls.
  • Layer with half of sliced ham, folding pieces of lunchmeat in half. Add a layer of Swiss cheese.
  • Repeat with a layer of turkey and Swiss cheese. Put top back on rolls.

Glaze

  • Mix glaze ingredients in a sauce pan and heat over medium heat. Stir often until mixture boils for 1 minute. Pour over the top of the sliders and bake for 10 minutes until meat is warm and cheese melts.

Notes

  • Toasting rolls is a great added touch, but not required if you're in a hurry
  • Use a little ranch or a lot of ranch based on your preference
  • Ranch can be substituted for horseradish or barbecue sauce
  • Swiss can be substituted for white or yellow cheddar or Colby jack cheese
  • I prefer using thinly sliced lunchmeat and swiss cheese
  • Bacon bits are optional but do add a lot of flavor
  • Warming each layer of meat and cheese for a minute or two in the warm oven before adding the top of the sandwich helps speed up the baking time
  • Sliders are best served immediately after baking, but we often have a few extras that are easy to reheat within a day or two.
  • Sliders do not freeze well - I would freeze the rolls, meat and cheese separately if you have extra ingredients. Defrost, assemble and bake when ready to eat.
