Ham & Swiss Poppy Seed Sandwich Sliders Recipe

My sister-in-law made these sandwiches for a family party.  I’ve never been a big sandwich eater, but I spent most of the day in the kitchen devouring these.  Literally, one in each hand!  They are that good. They are so easy and make a big batch to feed a lot of people.  My husband’s grandma says that she has yet to make these and have someone not like them!

Yes, that is a big slab of cheese melting down the side. :)
That poppy seed spread is to die for!  I could eat it by the spoonful!
About 2 dozen mini dinner rolls
Swiss Cheese Slices (about 1/2 pound)
Ham Slices (about 3/4 pound)
1 medium onion finely diced
3 Tbl. mustard (I used dijon)
3 Tbl. poppy seeds
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 sticks margarine/butterDirections:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.Slice your rolls in half horizontally, keeping them all together.

Melt the margarine and then whisk in the onion, mustard, poppy seeds, and Worcestershire sauce.

Brush the mixture evenly on both the top and bottom half of the rolls. On the bottom top the mustard mixture with the swiss cheese and ham slices.

Cover with foil and bake about 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Remove from oven and separate the rolls.

    I have also been making these for years for my kids’ birthday parties. People ask me for the recipe all the time, but I made one slight change that I think you should try. I add in some minced garlic to the melted butter, and it really makes it pop ~ I’ve never measured, but I would guess around a tablespoon.

    This is an old time recipe! Like another reader, I use these for my kids’ parties! Once you wrap them in foil, pop them in the freezer and then when you want to use them, put them in the oven as directed. Yummy! Thanks for sharing!

    Here in amish country in ohio. We make sandwiches very similar to these. The only difference is we make the ham and swiss sandwiches and next we drizzle the poppy seed mixture over the top and bake for 20 minutes. Just don’t put to much mixture on the top. Just had them today actually! Very Good!

      I’m not sure what you substitute butter with in other recipes. I know in baking you can substitute butter with unsweetened applesauce or canola oil. But that would not taste good on these sliders. Sorry we are not more help. We love this recipe the way it is. It’s is truly one of our favorites. So we have never even thought how we could change it up.
