Ham and Cheese Sliders

John has some friends over about once a month for a game day. They play some ridiculously dorky board game that I don't understand and typically we just order pizzas. The last time they were coming we decided to switch it up and I made these sandwiches. If you read food blogs this isn't new to you- everyone has made these little sliders in the past few years. I finally got around to trying them and they were a huge hit. All of the guys enjoyed them, even John's one friend who was skeptical at first. According to John they even reheated really well for lunch the next day.

Also, I should mention I couldn't find slider rolls so I used the potato hamburger rolls and I think that was a good alternative. They weren't too large and the potato roll had a nice soft texture. I also did half ham and half ham/turkey. You could sub any deli meat, but the sauce you pour over the top is what seals the deal. It adds a lot of flavor to the sandwiches! Overall a big hit!

12 slider rolls (or 8 potato hamburger rolls)
12 slices honey ham
12 small slices Swiss cheese

For the sauce:
½ tbsp. yellow mustard
4 tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 tbsp. finely minced onion (or 2 tsp. dried minced onion)
1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Poppy seeds, for sprinkling

1- Preheat the oven to 350˚ F. Split the slider rolls and spread the insides lightly with mayonnaise. 
2- Fold a slice of ham to fit on each slider bun, and top with a slice of Swiss cheese. If using larger rolls, use a slice and a half to two slices of ham per roll.
3-  Replace the top bun to assemble the sandwiches. Place the sandwiches on a baking sheet.
4- To make the sauce, combine all ingredients except the poppy seeds in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Drizzle the sauce over the tops of the slider buns. Sprinkle with poppy seeds. Cover with foil and bake 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted. 
5- Remove the foil and bake 2 minutes longer. Serve warm.
