What ingredients do I need to make these Lightened Up Ham and Cheese Sliders?

  • Hawaiian sweet rolls– I use Sam’s choice Hawaiian sweet rolls from Walmart or Sams Club. They are 2 smartpoints each.
  • Thin sliced deli ham– I use Hillshire Farm® Ultra Thin Sliced Deli Lunch Meat, Black Forest Ham. I weigh out the ham using THIS food scale. If you don’t have a food scale thin sliced lunchmeat is usually 4-5 slices for 2 oz.
  • Ultra thin slices of provolone or Swiss cheese– I like to use Sargento ultra thin cheese slices.
  • Light butter– I  use can’t believe it’s not butter or light Land o’ Lakes made with canola oil, melted
  • Dijon mustard
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Poppy seeds

How do I make these Lightened Up Ham and Cheese Sliders?

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

Spray a 9×13 baking dish with non stick cooking spray. 

Using a large knife, slice the rolls in half so you have a section of tops and a section of bottoms; you don’t want to pull the rolls apart or slice them individually because you want to keep them connected.

Layer 4 slices the cheese on the bottom section of the rolls.

Place the ham on top the of the cheese slices. 

Place another 4 slices of cheese over the top of the ham.

Add the top part of the rolls on top of the cheese layer.

In a small bowl mix together butter, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, and poppy seeds.

Using a basting brush butter mixture over the top of the rolls.

Cover the rolls with foil. Bake for 20 minutes and then remove the foil and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until the tops of the rolls are lightly browned and cheese is melted.

Remove from the oven, use a knife to cut, and serve warm. 

Can I make these ahead of time? Do they freeze well?

Yes! These sliders can be made a day in advance and stored in the refrigerator. These can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Store leftover sliders in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
