*Best Loved* Hot Ham & Cheese Sliders

These little gooey sandwiches filled with ham and cheese and topped with a tangy, buttery sauce really needs no introduction!

They are perfect for a party, game night, shower, or any holiday appetizer!  When are they not perfect, really?? :)

They're easy to assemble, fast to bake, and when done they come out of the oven begging to be inhaled by hungry kids and adults alike!  I made a pan a few weeks ago in the Christmas season on a fun day Mr. Cozy and I were at home with the kids.  They fueled our day of wrapping and relaxing. They would be perfect for a Super Bowl party, too!  If you've never tried these hot ham and cheese sliders, what are you waiting for... Here is the recipe to your new favorite sandwich!!

Hot Ham & Cheese Sliders

1 pkg. Hawaiian Rolls, split entire pan of rolls length-wise (don't separate rolls)
18 slices (approx) Your favorite deli ham, shaved
8 slices (approx) your favorite cheese,sliced,  Swiss, cheddar, Colby jack, or pepper jack
5 Tbsp. Butter
1/2 tsp. onion or garlic powder
1 Tbsp. Mustard (I used hot and sweet mustard)
3 packed tsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. Worchestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. salt
Poppy seeds

Keep in mind, as you assemble to treat it as one big sandwich.  Once you slice the whole pkg. of rolls in half lengthwise (without breaking them apart), lay the bottom half in a preferably 8x11 in. pan, (9x13 works too) and evenly pile ham and cheese all over.  Top with the other half of the rolls.

Prepare sauce by heating in a small pan, the butter, sugar, Worchestershire, mustard, onion or garlic powder, and salt.  Whisk just until it's all smooth and melted.

Evenly drizzle the butter glaze all over the sandwich. Use a knife to spread evenly, if need be.  Sprinkle generously with poppy seeds.

Cover the pan with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes and remove foil and bake 5 minutes longer.  I like the cheese to be gooey and the tops slightly toasted.  Pull each little slider apart to serve.

Serve warm and enjoy with fresh veggies and chips!

I hope you and yours had a Merry Christmas, as we did!!!
