Hawaiian Ham and Cheese Sliders

Ham and Cheese Sliders

I buy the 12 pack of dinner rolls all the time. They are so many brands and varieties of these with the King Hawaiian brand being very popular. Most of the time I purchase the pack of rolls sold at Walmart. The kids love them and they are a great bun to have alongside a dinner meal.

These packs of dinner rolls are awesome to make into sliders and this recipe is super simple to make. While the recipe uses ham and summer sausage for the lunchmeat, there are so many options and you could substitute any lunchmeat really. The same goes with the cheese and pickles, feel free to mix it up with whatever variety you like.

The sliders are built together, baked in a glass baking dish, and then cut into the sliders afterwards. These warm, cheesy sliders are so delicious and will be gobbled up really quickly.

I also have a couple other recipes using these dinner rolls. Check out these links!

You can build these ahead of time and place them in the fridge for later in the day when you want to bake them. Do not brush them with the melted butter and mustard mixture until they are about to be baked in the oven.
