Here is another appetizer that was quick and easy to make ahead of time for our annual Holiday Party! You can use leftover ham from your holiday dinner or just go the easy route and hit the deli counter for some thick sliced ham and baby swiss cheese. I was able to assemble these sliders that day before our party and keep them in the refrigerator until right before our guests arrived. A quick 15 minutes in the oven to melt the cheese and crisp the bread and you are ready to eat!
This recipe is a keeper and I can see myself making these for parties year 'round. They also would be perfect to make a batch for my husband's lunches!

Ham and Cheese Sliders
24 pieces good honey ham*
24 small slices Swiss cheese*
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup miracle whip
*I made the mistake of getting 24 slices of ham and cheese at the deli counter. I didn't take into account the small size of the slider buns and ended up quartering each slice and would have actually only needed 6 slices of each.
Poppy seed sauce
1 Tablespoon poppyseeds
1 1/2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Tablespoon minced onion
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Slice your dinner rolls (I used Hawaiian Bread rolls...yum!) to create the slider rolls.
In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and miracle whip. Spread onto both sides of the center of each roll.
Place a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss inside of each roll. Close rolls and place them into a large baking dish or heavy cookie sheet.
Place very close together.
In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the poppy seed sauce ingredients.
Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches. You do not have to use all of the sauce! Just use enough to cover the tops. Let sit 10 minutes or until butter sets slightly.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes or until tops are slightly brown and crispy.
*sandwiches can be assembled a day ahead and kept in the refrigerator ready to bake.
