If you need an easy and delicious comfort food appetizer for tailgating, holiday parties or potlucks, then go ahead and whip up a batch of these delicious Ham and Swiss Sliders. I’ve made them several times and my baking dish always comes back clean. Everyone will be asking you for this recipe because they are just so amazingly good.

Trust me, set these out at a party and they will be gone in a matter of minutes. These Ham and Swiss Sliders also make a great gift for a new mom. Just pair them with a salad and you’ve got a delicious meal to bless a friend. These sliders are best served warm. They can be reheated the next day, but will be mushier. They are best right out of the oven.

Can This Recipe Be Made Ahead of Time?

Yes! You can prep the sliders the day before the party, but I wouldn’t add the butter or other seasonings until you are ready to bake the next day. Simply assemble the bread, ham and cheese, then cover with foil and refrigerate until you are ready to add the butter and other toppings before baking.

Can Ham and Swiss Sliders be Frozen?

Yes! You can assemble the bread, meat and cheese and cover with plastic wrap or foil before freezing, but again I wouldn’t add the butter or other seasonings until right before baking, otherwise they will run the risk of being mushy.

Are Ham and Swiss Sliders Good Cold?

Of course this is all personal opinion, but yes they taste great hot or cold. Serve them anyway that you wish.

What Kind of Cheese Goes Well with Ham?

You may be wondering if you can substitute the cheese in this recipe and the answer is yes. The best widely available sliced cheese that go well with ham are Swiss, provolone, Monterey or cheddar.

  1. I just made these for my office staff for lunch. They LOVED them - now I am forwarding them the recipe. Always a good sign of a well received meal!
  2. Hi, I'm going on a wine tour tmrw with a lot of people but I'm leaving early in the morning. Would I able to -make a head and bake at night and reheat in the morning? Or should I just make everything ahead the night before and bake in the morning? I don't know how long these can sit out though but I'm assuming since they are so good they aren't going to even last that long.
  3. Oh my gosh! These were so easy and delicious. We did use the savory butter kings Hawiaian rolls and I put pickles on mine because who doesn’t love pickles! For sure going in to our rotation of meals.
    1. I was thought to assemble, pour mixture on top cover with foil & refrigerate over night, allowing the buns to soak up all the flavors. (Instead of parmesan, we add a tsp or more poppy seeds to the mixture, this gives the sandwiches a little crunch) Before eating cook @350 until hot/cheese is melted. My family loves these at room temp as well as hot.
  4. What am I missing? This is the 2nd time I’ve made these and they are always cold in the middle. I usually put them back in the over but they don’t seem to ever fully heat up in the middle
  5. Made this tonight and it was insanely good. Everyone loved them. Followed directions exactly, I wouldn't change a thing.
    1. Try altering the recipe less butter or different cheese. These two ingredients have the most (grease) type agents
  6. My big hesitation with making these is that the bottom half of the buns will be mushy & soaked in butter?? Or do they crisp up a bit??
    1. They will definitely be covered in butter, but not mushy as if they had water on them. If you are concerned, then you could always do less butter, but don't knock it until you try it. :)
  7. I just made these last night for a New Year's Eve party and we all loved them! Super easy and I'm not someone that even remotely likes cooking! I will definitely make them again! Thank you for this tasty recipe!
  8. Love these but twice I’ve made them and the bottoms did in fact turn out mushy... aside from using less butter do you have any insight? I may try brushing the tops ‘lightly’ hahaha...
  9. Can you assemble these earlier in the day or the night before, then cook when you are getting ready to serve?
    1. I have not tried that, so I can't answer you. You could definitely assemble the ham, cheese and bread and cover and then add the sauce before baking.
  10. Made these for lunch today and will make them again. Super easy and delicious. Just wish you had callries listed.
  11. Just double checking the calories for one sandwich is 541? My kiddo is trying to gain weight and loves these! We all do in our house for that matter! Thanks for the recipe!

    5 stars

  12. Made these for our backyard “tailgating party”. Everyone loved them. Had a lot of butter mixture leftover for some reason. They were so easy and so tasty! Definitely a repeater!

    5 stars

  13. I haven't got round to making the sliders yet but used your method of slicing the rolls while they were still attached to make ham rolls for a picnic. How much easier to spread butter and mayo and layer ham and salad - then trim them into individual rolls afterwards. Such a time saver!
