  • 12 slider buns
  • 11 oz Hillshire Farm® Premium Carved Slow Roasted Seasoned Ham or any sliced deli ham
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 c. butter melted
  • 1 Tbsp honey mustard
  • 2 tsp dried minced onions
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp poppy seeds


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x9 or 9x13 inch pan. Set aside.
  • Slice slider buns horizontally and arrange the bottom of the buns in baking dish. Slice them as a "slab" do not pull them apart in individual buns because you want to keep them connected.
  • Layer 1/2 the ham on the rolls, top with cheese and then the rest of the ham. Top with the top "slab" of buns.
  • In a bowl combine melted butter, honey mustard, dried minced onions and Worcestershire sauce. Whisk to combine.
  • Evenly and slowly pour the mixture over the rolls. Use a silicone brush to evenly distribute over the tops of the buns.
  • Cover pan with aluminum foil. Let buns stand for 5 minutes. Then place in preheated oven and bake covered for 20 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.
  • Remove from oven, take aluminum foil off and put back in oven. Cook for an additional 3-5 minutes or until cooked to desired doneness.
  • Remove from oven, slice into individual sliders and enjoy immediately.


If you prefer to make these with sliced turkey that’s a great option too or use our Cheesy Bacon Turkey Slider Recipe.
You can make and assemble these sliders up to 4 hours in advance. Store them covered in the refrigerator. Then bake according to directions. Add about 5 minutes to total bake time since they are cold when you place them in the oven.
Make a spicy version by adding a layer of pickled jalapenos in between the ham and cheese and pepper jack cheese.
Planning food for a party? We recommend planning about 2 sliders per person.
