Whether you’re looking for a quick and easy Sunday night supper, something to take to the church potluck or a new twist on appetizers for your buffet table, you can’t help but be the hit of the party with these sliders. I have pinned several versions on my Pinterest recipe boards and, of course, it is always my intention when I’m pinning them, to actually go ahead and make them. I finally got around to putting them together and oh gravy! These are really good! You really do have to try them. Your family will crown you Chef Extraordinaire! You know you want a crown. 🙂 Okay, enough with illusions of grandeur. Here’s the scrumptiousrecipe. Enjoy!
These would be a great way to use up leftover Easter ham or turkey. They also work just as well using thin-sliced deli meat. It’s really hard to go wrong with meat and melted cheese on warm rolls, right? I like to use barbecue sauce to add a punch of flavor, but you could mix it up and use your favorite condiments. I think spicy brown mustard or even horseradish would work well, too.
To assemble the sandwiches it’s as easy as spreading a little of the barbecue sauce on each roll and then topping it with your choice of meat and the cheese. Place each of the sandwiches into your baking pan after they are assembled. When you have all 24 put together and in the pan, drizzle the luscious poppyseed glaze over the top. Bake them up. The glaze will caramelize over the top of the sandwiches and create the layer of sweet the complements all the savory and spicy notes in your sandwiches. My family would eat these, as often as I would make them. They’re good for lunch, brunch, dinner and everything in between. If you serve them at a football party or a movie night, you’ll be a hero, too. You can’t lose with this recipe. Whip up a batch of Smoked Turkey or Ham Sliders with Poppyseed Glaze, for your own family, and you’ll see just what I’m talking about. Have a fabulous weekend!
How to Make Scrumptious Smoked Turkey or Ham Sliders with Poppyseed Glaze
- ½ lb deli ham, thinly sliced
- ½ lb deli smoked turkey, thinly sliced
- 12 white American cheese slices
- 2 (12 ct pkgs) dinner rolls (I used 1 white and 1 wheat)
- ½ cup butter
- 2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
- 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire
- 1 Tablespoon poppy seeds
- ⅓ cup brown sugar
- To build the sandwiches, I sliced the white rolls and place two slices of ham on each roll with a little Miracle Whip.
- Then I cut the cheese slice into quarters and used 2 quarters on each sandwich.
- For the smoked turkey sliders, I used the wheat rolls and barbecue sauce instead of mayo. Otherwise, they were assembled in exactly the same way as the ham.
- I put all 24 sandwiches into my 9x13 stoneware baker. Any 9x13 cake pan will work.
- To make the sauce, add butter, mustard, Worcestershire, poppy seeds, and brown sugar to a medium saucepan.
- Bring the sauce ingredients to a boil.
- Drizzle the entire pan of sauce over the sandwiches in your baking pan.
- Your sandwiches will be completely coated. Most of the sauce will stay on top of the rolls, because they are pressed together so tightly in the pan. Some may seep down to the bottom and that's okay.
- Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
- Remove foil and bake an additional 5 minutes or so to caramelize the sauce on top of your sandwiches.
- Remove from oven and serve. We ate ours with a fresh veggie salad. SO good!!!!
