Bread: the secret of ham and cheese sliders

Ham and cheese sliders are a type of sandwich, very similar to the traditional sandwiches but characterized by the kind of bread they make. In Latin America, Hawaiian bread is used; it is indicated as being very soft and tender on the inside, with a crunchy texture on the outside.
But bread is one of many essential things when preparing ham and cheese sliders. Quality ingredients should be used. This slider recipe is perfect for children's parties or to serve at informal celebrations with adults; it is a straightforward snack to prepare and will please more than one of the guests at your gathering.
It's also ideal if you want to make a super easy lunch or dinner recipe. You can make homemade Hawaiian bread yourself or use one that resembles it. In this case, you can find a very similar bun in the supermarket and bakery. Even homemade hamburger buns, which are tiny, can be helpful.

Ingredients of the sliders

For the sliders to be delicious, not only must you use quality bread, but you can also prepare it yourself at home. In addition, the juicy flavor of the sliders is due to the ham, cheese, Dijon mustard, dried onion, and Worcestershire sauce.

It is also possible to spread a little butter on the sliders, to make the flavor and texture much more delicious. If you want to learn how to prepare this recipe that will triumph among the most demanding palates, take note of what you will need:

  • Cooking spray.
  • A package of sweet buns. You can buy buns in the supermarket or bakery that are sweet or similar to hamburger bread.
  • York ham, but it is also possible to substitute it with Serrano ham.
  • Grated Swiss cheese.
  • Half a cup of unsalted butter.
  • One tablespoon of Dijon mustard.
  • One tablespoon of poppy seeds.
  • Two teaspoons Worcestershire sauce or Worcestershire sauce.
  • Two teaspoons of dried onion.
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper.



  • Remove the sausage and butter from the refrigerator before starting work. This will make the butter easier to handle and the link warmer.
  • Preheat the oven to 170-180º C.
  • Use a baking sheet and cover it with aluminum foil; you can also use a special baking dish.
  • Spray cooking spray over the top.
  • Open the bread in half using a serrated knife. Keeping the bread's two halves (bottom and top) together will be easiest.
  • Place a layer of ham, then cheese, then ham again, and cover with the lid of the rolls.
  • Place some butter in a microwave-safe bowl and heat until the butter melts.
  • Add the mustard, poppy seeds, Worcestershire sauce, and onion to the melted butter. Use the whisk to whisk the ingredients to form a uniform mixture—season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Place the sliders on the baking sheet, side by side.
  • Drizzle the rolls with the butter mixture and the rest of the ingredients. You can use a kitchen brush so that all the rolls are perfectly well coated; you can also use a spatula.
  • Cover the tray with aluminum foil and let the rest of the sliders, at room temperature, for at least five to 10 minutes.
  • Place the tray in the oven until the cheese is melted. This may take about 15-20 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking, making the golden bread brown and a little crispy. This last part of the baking will take five minutes.
  • Remove the sliders with the help of kitchen tongs to serve individually - your guests will love it!
