Glazed Ham and Cheese Sliders

These Glazed Ham and Cheese Sliders are probably one of the most versatile recipes I have.  Ham and cheese on rolls baked with a sticky, gooey glaze, how can you go wrong?

I make these sandwiches all year long, but it just seems like the perfect recipe for the holidays.  Honestly, they can be eaten as breakfast, lunch, dinner, an appetizer… name it!

I like to used shaved deli ham (Black Forrest is our favorite) but you could certainly use up your holiday ham by putting it on these.  If you don’t care for Swiss cheese, then just use what you like.  I think provolone, cheddar or mozzarella would work well.

This recipe is a quick an easy thing to take to a party or get together.  For easy clean up, I line a baking sheet with foil. ~You will thank me for that tip~ While the glaze is warming I cut the rolls and layer the meat and cheese.  If you’re going to be in a hurry, you can put the ham and cheese on the rolls the night before.  I just place them back in the bag the rolls came in and store them in the refrigerator.  Bring them out of the refrigerator a few minutes to come to room temperature while you prepare the glaze.

These are always a hit every place I’ve taken them. I never have any leftovers, which usually disappoints my kids! Ha!  Although I like these Glazed Ham and Cheese Sliders any time, I think they would be great for a holiday open house or New Year’s Eve!
