Ham and Swiss Sliders
Chances are you may have some leftover ham from Easter. If so, I have the perfect solution for you! These bake into a juicy ham and cheese sandwich with a very slight crispiness from the butter mixture that covers the rolls. Delicious!
As an aside, I used to make these with the sugar-loaded Hawaiian rolls from the store, and so the first time I attempted them with my homemade slider-rolls (using Simple Sandwich Dough) I was a tad nervous. When my family approved I was very happy! My husband said they are actually better now and they are now one of my son's favorite meals! Such an easy 35 minute weeknight meal to keep on the rotation. You can either use up any leftover spiral cut ham or you can use slices of ham from the deli counter. Let us know in the comments if you give this a try, we highly encourage it!

- Use a serrated knife to slice the rolls in half and place bottoms in the prepared pan side by side touching in the pan

- Evenly pour the butter mixture over the rolls. Use a spatula to spread the mixture over the tops.
Pro-tip: It's ok for some of the mixture to pool at the base of the rolls.

- Cover with aluminum foil and allow rolls to rest at room temperature for about 5-10 minutes.
