Take your ham and cheese sandwich to the next level by turning it into a slider. Fluffy potato dinner rolls are just the right size for a few bites. Heating these small sandwiches in the oven makes the rolls nice and crisp and the cheese melty and gooey. You can also make these sliders in a toaster oven if you have one. To make a whole bunch of sliders for a party, double or triple this recipe (to make 8 or 12 sliders) and heat them all on one rimmed baking sheet in the oven. Follow this recipe with your kids. 






Servings: 2 


Start to finish: 25 minutes 




4 teaspoons yellow mustard 


4 potato dinner rolls, sliced open 


4 slices deli ham 


8 dill pickle chips 


2 slices deli cheddar cheese, cut in half 




  • Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 400 F. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. 


  • Use butter knife to spread mustard evenly over insides of rolls. 


  • Layer 1 slice ham, 2 pickle chips, and 1/2 slice cheese into each roll and press down gently (you should have 4 sliders). 


  • Place sliders on baking sheet. Place baking sheet in oven and bake until cheese has melted and rolls are crisp, about 5 minutes. 


  • Use oven mitts to remove baking sheet from oven (ask an adult for help) and transfer to cooling rack. Use spatula to carefully transfer sliders to 2 plates (baking sheet will be hot). Serve.
