What is a ham and cheese slider?

A ham and cheese slider is a small ham & cheese sandwich on a bun. (Just like a two-bite hamburger is a slider.) Our fancy ham sliders go all gourmet with green apple & onion topping and garlic butter sauce.

What are the best sliders to serve with Hawaiian Rolls?

Hawaiian rolls* are a sweet, soft bread with a fluffy, melt-in-your mouth texture that pair perfectly with delicate ham and cheese flavors. We think the best sliders to serve with Hawaiian rolls are our fancy ham sliders!

What kind of sauce is on ham and cheese sliders?

Our Fancy Ham and Cheese Sliders have a sauce made with Burman’s Spicy Mustard and garlic butter. It is the perfect complement for the shredded Cranberry White Cheddar and Havarti cheeses, and a green apple & onion topping.

What can I do with leftover ham sliders?

I seriously doubt that you’ll have leftover fancy ham sliders, but if you do: refrigerate them until the next morning and have them for breakfast. Cook an egg in a small ring* to go with the ham and cheese and you have an amazing breakfast sandwich.

How to Have an Appetizer Party

  • An appetizer party is a great way to have a party on a smaller budget.
  • It’s easier to visit with guests because the food can be prepared in advance.
  • It is the perfect party when you don’t have enough space for all your guests – it can be a standing-room-only party rather than a sit-down party.
