Don’t fret, dear readers, Gooplet still has a couple of months to go before he gets his first taste of cake. This first birthday bash was for CV(D)’s son. In fact, she not only had time to pull of this party, but she even wrote her next guest post about it. And the sliders in question were gobbled up faster than anyone could snap a picture. Please enjoy her adorable cake, instead.
24 Slices of deli honey ham
6 Slices of swiss cheese, cut into fourths
1/3 cup Mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Poppy seeds
1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup Butter melted
1 tablespoon Onion Powder
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 packages (12 count) KING’S HAWAIIAN Original Hawaiian Sweet Dinner RollsKelsey’s Note: I always add a little extra cheese and ham on mine to make them more hearty. This recipe calls for more than I think you need, but I tend to use almost all of the ham & cheese when I make them! Also, sometimes they sell the rolls in a 24 pack, and they are easier to prepare/cut that way because you’re cutting one full package of rolls instead of 2-12 packs. I’ve found that this recipe takes close to 45 minutes for prep, wait time & cook time!Instructions:1) Cut rolls in half and spread mayo onto 1 side of the rolls. Place a slice or two of ham and slice of swiss cheese in roll. Replace the top of the rolls and bunch them closely together into a baking dish.
2) In a medium bowl, whisk together poppy seeds, dijon mustard, melted butter, onion powder and worcestershire sauce.(Note: if you’re prepping in advance and assembling at the party your daughter is throwing (or whoever), pause here. Cover the baking dish(es) and put a lid on the sauce. Carry the whole deal over to the party, then pick up again at step 3)3) Pour sauce over the rolls, just covering the tops. Cover with foil and let sit for 10 minutes.
4) Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for additional 2 minutes until tops are slightly browned and crisp. Serve warm.
