Ham and Cheese Sliders

I am in the throes of raising little kids, which means lots of grilled cheese, apple slices, and the occasional box of macaroni and cheese are frequently prepared in my kitchen.  Sometimes, I get bored with making the same kid-friendly food over and over.  Sometimes it is fun to have party food for a family meal.  Sometimes sliders just need to be the main dish!  (Think grilled cheese meets major steroids!)  My family loves these and we love to add sliced tomato to our grilled cheese.  So simple and so easy, these sliders would make a great addition to a birthday party spread or any get-together.

Ham and Cheese Sliders
Adapted from Annie's Eats

12 slider rolls
24 slices honey ham
12 small slices Swiss cheese (I have used smoked swiss....yum!)
1 Roma tomato, sliced thinly into 12slices

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

Preheat the oven to 350˚ F.  Split the slider rolls and spread the insides lightly with mayonnaise.  Fold a slice of ham to fit on each slider bun, and top with a slice of Swiss cheese.  Replace the top bun to assemble the sandwiches.  Place the sandwiches in a 9x13 baking dish.

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.  Remove the foil and bake 2 minutes longer.  Serve warm.
