Ooey Gooey in a recipe title pretty much assures me that I’m going to want to make it. Throw in ham and cheese and I’m positive.
These sliders were definitely Ooey Gooey from the melted cheese. But then there is a mustardy onion-garlic butter sauce that gets poured over the rolls before baking which seals the whole O-G deal.
I could only find one pack of 12 slider rolls, so I bought some frozen French rolls, too. The slider rolls looked better and were unbelievably delicious, but I thought the French roll version tasted even more wonderful.
Ooey Gooey Ham And Cheese Sliders
24 white dinner rolls (I made half with slider rolls and half with frozen French rolls
24 small slices honey ham
24 small slices Swiss cheese
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 Tbs poppy seeds
1 1/2 Tbs yellow mustard
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Tbs minced onion
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1. Preheat oven to 350℉.
2 In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and Dijon. Spread onto both sides of the center of each roll. Note: If you use frozen rolls, bake the roll for about 4 to 5 minutes until soft enough to slice in half.
3. Place a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss inside each roll. Place rolls close together in a large baking dish.
4. In a medium bowl, whisk together poppy seeds and remaining ingredients. Pour poppy seed mixture evenly over all the sandwiches, using just enough to cover the tops. You’ll have some leftover.
5. Let rolls sit 10 minutes for butter to set slightly. Cover with foil and bake for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and bake an additional 2 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.
