King’s Hawaiian Original Sweet Rolls cut in half

1. Start with KING’S HAWAIIAN Original Sweet Rolls

Let’s get started! Preheat your oven to 350°F. As the oven heats, cut the KING'S HAWAIIAN rolls in half with a serrated knife, keeping the rolls connected. Spread a generous amount of mayo onto one side of the sliced rolls. 

The sweetness of the rolls are what give this recipe the wow-factor. The ham and cheese perfectly pair with the iconic flavor of KING'S HAWAIIAN Original Sweet Rolls. Whether you need a game day appetizer or are making a meal at home, these versatile ham and cheese sliders are irresistibly delicious in any setting.

2. Sliders…Assemble!

Layer a slice or two of ham on top of the mayonnaise, making sure that the ham covers the entire surface area of the rolls. To complete the savory flavor profile, add a slice of Swiss cheese on top of the ham. Replace the top half of the rolls onto the bottom half, creating little finger food sandwiches. 

These sliders are a popular choice for occasions like Slider Sunday, BBQs with friends and family, Game Day, and more! They’re fun and easy to share, while being hearty enough that no one will go hungry.

3. Level-Up the Flavor Profile with This Simple Sauce

In a medium bowl, whisk together poppy seeds, Dijon mustard, melted butter, onion powder and Worcestershire sauce, and drizzle the sauce on top of the rolls. This sauce intensifies the flavor and creates texture with the poppy seeds. Cover your sliders with foil and let them sit for 10 minutes.

Whether you’re seeing friends, have a BBQ, or simply don’t know what to make for dinner tonight, fear not! You can get KING'S HAWAIIAN rolls delivered to your doorstep by ordering from Amazon Fresh or Instacart

4. Bake to Perfection

They say masterpieces take time, but in this case, they only take about ten minutes. 

Pop your sliders in the oven for ten minutes, letting the cheese transform into warm, melty goodness. After ten minutes, uncover the sliders and put them back in the oven for two minutes to let the tops become a slightly crisp, golden brown.
