Carol’s Hawaiian Roll Sliders

As a welcome back present to Ellis, I thought I’d make him Hawaiian Roll Sliders. You know he’s missing the spirit of Aloha and all! 🙂 Now, you may be thinking, I can take ham and cheese, put it between any kind of bread and warm it up until it’s all ooey, gooey, melty, but, the secret to this one is the sauce you make to pour over the top to bake. There’s all kinds of recipes for baked sliders like this, but theres no reason to look any further than the King’s Hawaiian Rolls recipe, which I modified slightly (I’m not a huge may fan, so I didn’t like the idea of adding extra calories to the sandwich by adding mayo. Leaving it out also helped the sandwiches form a better butter crust while baking.

I don’t know why I haven’t tried these earlier. This was a HUGE win with my husband, so much so, that I was barely able to sneak out a few to let Ellis and Tyler try. 🙂

Let’s jump in the kitchen and get cookin together!


  • 2  -12 packs of King’s Hawaiian Rolls
  • 1 lb Deli Sliced Virginia Baked Ham Sliced Thin
  • 1/2 lb Deli Sliced Swiss Cheese
  • 1 Stick of Butter, Melted
  • 1 Tbsp Poppy Seeds
  • 1 Tbsp Onion Powder (I had Onion Salt, so I subbed in 1/2 Tbsp of Onion Salt instead…a full tbsp would have made the dish way to salty)
  • 1.5 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 6 Dashes of Worcestershire Sauce

  • Preheat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Slice both loaves of your Hawaiian Rolls in half, like you are about to make a sandwich.

  • Place the bottom 2 halves side by side in a 9×13 baking dish.

  • Layer the full pound of ham evenly across the bottom layer of bread.

  • Layer the full 1/2 pound of swiss cheese across the top of the ham.

  • Replace tops to the sandwiches.

  • In a bowl, mix together the stick of melted butter, 1 tbsp of poppy seeds, 1/2 tbsp of onion salt, 1.5 tbsp of Dijon mustard and 6 dashes of Worcestershire sauce

  • When combined, pour mixture over top of sandwiches.

  • Place tinfoil over top of dish and let set for a few minutes letting all that butter goodness seep down and do its thing. 🙂
  • Bake on 350 Degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes covered in foil.

  • Bake 2 or 3 more minutes without foil to help brown top of the sandwiches.

  • Remove from oven and let stand for a couple of minutes before slicing up.

  • Enjoy! 🙂
