Game Day Ham and Cheese Sliders



Game Day Ham and Cheese Sliders are addicting! If you want to spend more time watching the games and less time in the kitchen, this would do it! Serve it with a tray of  veggies and dip and call it a meal! The little ones can be put to work prepping the meal. Let them fold the ham and cheese into quarters(fold twice). Let’s call it obtaining background information to use to help them relate to  fractions, (quarters = fourths, 4 quarters make a dollar. 4 quarts = 1 gallon)….Can you tell I’m a math teacher? The kitchen is the perfect place to talk about or introduce them to forms of  measurement and how they relate to one another.

The ingredient list is simple and easy to grab in a small grocery basket if you are in hurry to pick up something quick for dinner. You can use either regular mustard or Dijon(my preference), but I didn’t realize I was out so I used what I had on hand.


I sliced rolls in half and placed the ham and cheese slices within each.



Place the rolls in a non-stick foil-lined pan. These are placed in a 11″ x 7″ pan, but you could use a larger size or even a cupcake pan with liners. I just thought of that one; it may make serving easier if it’s for a party. Brilliant! I want to make clean up as easy as possible, so either of these ways would be compliant with my need for that on a busy day.


Boil the sauce ingredients and drizzle evenly over the rolls.




Bake for 20 minutes and serve! That’s all there is too it! I love simply put together food! Yummo-licious!
