I haven't eaten something this extraordinary in a long time!
Our PTA has some of the greatest ladies I know serving on our Executive Board. One of these ladies has been serving as our SEOP Dinner Chair for almost ten years. She makes the greatest food! Just recently she served these ham and cheese sliders (along with equally delicious side dishes) to our teachers right before they conducted their parent/teacher conferences.
Dianne said the sliders are super easy to make and always get rave reviews. Our teachers came back for seconds and thirds, until everything was gone.
Ham and Cheese Sliders
24 white dinner rolls
24 pieces honey ham
24 small slices Swiss cheese
2/3 cup mayonnaise
2 TB Dijon mustard
Poppy seed sauce:
1 Tablespoon poppy seeds
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Tablespoon minced onion
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and mustard. Spread onto both sides of the center of each roll. Place a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss inside of each roll. Close rolls and place them into a large baking dish or heavy cookie sheet. Place very close together.
In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the poppy seed sauce ingredients. Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches. You do not have to use all of the sauce! Just use enough to cover the tops. Let sit 10 minutes or until butter sets slightly. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes or until tops are slightly brown and crispy. Serve warm. Note: Sandwiches can be assembled a day ahead and kept in the fridge ready to bake.
