Hot Ham & Cheese and Reuben Sliders

Hot Ham & Cheese and Reuben Sliders

These little guys are oh so good! Perfect for a party, or a simple meal at home. They are the right size, so you won’t feel guilty having more than one. The sweetness of the Hawaiian rolls is just right. And the sweet buttery poppy seed topping is exactly what these sandwiches need! And they are so easy to make.

With the Super Bowl coming up, I thought it was a perfect time to share how to make these yummy little sliders. We were first introduced to the ham and cheese sliders at a neighborhood party, and my husband couldn’t stop talking about them. So for New Year’s Eve, we had to make them. And they were so good.

I’m not a huge fan of ham, but I actually loved them! I’m more of a Reuben kind of girl, so I had to incorporate them somehow. And that’s how these came together. I recently made these for dinner and OMG, they were so good!

Making two different kinds of sliders was perfect! I have to say, I did enjoy both of them and I never eat ham. I do think making a variety of sliders could be a hit at your next party. I’ve definitely got the Super Bowl on my mind, and maybe you do too.

This recipe makes 12 sliders

You could easily make more for a party (24) just double the recipe.


  • 1 pack of Hawaiian rolls (12)
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of minced onions (dried)
  • 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 pound of baby Swiss cheese thinly sliced from the deli
  • 1/4 of a pound of ham (off the bone) thinly sliced from the deli
  • 1/4 of a pound of corned beef thinly sliced from the deli
  • 1 cup of sauerkraut or more (warmed up)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of Thousand island dressing


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and start by slicing your whole Hawaiian rolls in half.

You will be adding ingredients to the bottom side only. One side for Reubens and the other side for Ham and Cheese.

•Start by spreading on some thousand island dressing on the Reuben side (6 sliders)

•Then add one layer of your desired amount of cheese. I used 1 slice of cheese for 4 sliders. See the picture below.

•Then add a thin layer of warmed-up sauerkraut to the Reuben side.

•Next add your desired amount of meat to each side. Add corned beef to the Reuben side. And ham to the other side.

•Lastly add another layer of cheese. And now it’s time to put your sliders together by adding the top bun. Now your sliders are complete!

•Add the sliders to a greased pan. I used an 8×11 glass baking dish. And I greased it with the wrapper from the stick of butter.

Now it’s time to get your sweet poppy seed butter mixture ready.



Add 1 stick of butter to a sauté pan, then 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard. 1 1/2 teaspoons of poppy seeds. And 1 teaspoon of minced onions (dried), and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. And 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce. Now cook on low to med heat and stir as the mixture melts.

When it’s completely melted, drizzle the mixture over your sliders. And then evenly spread the poppy seeds over the tops of the buns, so they are not in clumps.

Cover with tin foil, and they are now ready for the oven. cook at 375 degrees for 25-30 mins. For the last couple mins take the tin foil off. But don’t leave it uncovered for too long because the tops of the buns will get hard.


And there you go…Ham and cheese & Reuben sliders.

I hope these become a favorite!! Don’t forget to share this recipe with someone you love!
