King's Hawaiian Ham Sliders are super easy & amazingly delicious. These sliders are great for a crowd, or just a quick weeknight dinner recipe!
Finding a quick weeknight dinner that isn't just plain boring isn't easy to do. Sloppy joes, again? Yeah, that's how life used to be. But now, I've gotten in a good practice of always having at least one easy dinner planned so that I can use my evening to get other things done. A lot of times that's on Tuesday nights, when I need something quick that I can throw in the oven, eat over dinner with my family, before kissing my wife and kid's goodbye and heading out to play Trivia with my friends. It's not too often I cook and run, but trivia night at one of my favorite Tallahassee, Florida establishments is one of them. I'm still home in time to tuck the little one in for bed, which is always a plus.
Anyways, it's nights like these where I just want something that we can quickly and easily make, eat and move on. But I do not want to sacrifice taste, or just serve the same old boring stuff. That's where Meal Planning helps. by planning out your meals ahead of time, you'll save time already by ditching those last minute grocery store runs. Plus, you can rotate through a slew of quick weeknight dinners without falling into the sloppy joe rut. Not only were these Ham Sliders delicious, they absolutely got the unanimous "wow" response at dinner.
King's Hawaiian Ham Sliders 101
- Don't skimp on the sliders here. King's Hawaiian Ham Sliders deliver a sweetness that adds to the flavor. They're available at pretty much every grocery store.
- Sandwich meat is not somewhere to get cheap on, either. I always spend the little extra for Boars Head meat from my local Publix Deli. I went with the Smokehouse style ham for this one.
- Pro tip: if you live in Publix country, you can order your meat and cheese ahead of time, saving you time at the deli counter!
- I go with smoked provolone cheese here, but I could go a number of ways here. Swiss, smoked gouda and even some pepper jack (for a little kick) could be good substitutes!
Why I love King's Hawaiian Ham Sliders
If you get a good medium slice of provolone cheese, i t melts to an almost creamy-texture. The butter topping really makes the already flavorful buns even more so and the bottom develops just enough crispness to really bring it together. I made it for a weeknight dinner this time, but this would definitely be a hit at any party your through as well.
Let's make King's Hawaiian Ham Sliders
This one's pretty easy. Preheat your oven to 350°. Slice your King's Hawaiian rolls in half horizontally. You can use a large bread knife and just do the whole package at once. I was able to fit 2 packages worth of rolls on my 13x9 inch pan. They're packed tightly, but that's pretty much the point!
Melt ¼ cup of butter and add your worcestershire sauce, onion powder and stone ground dijon mustard. Set it aside. Place the bottom layer of rolls in your greased 13x9 inch cake pan. You may have to break a couple of the rows off to get it to fit in your pan.
Top the rolls with your ham, then your provolone. Then, plate the top half of your buns on top. And no, it's not critical that you line them up exactly with their bottom mates. Next, take your butter topping and brush it over the tops of the sliders. Place the mixture in the fridge for 10 minutes to allow the butter to harden and fuse with the rolls.
Cover the pan and place it in the oven for 30 minutes. Uncover it and return for 10 more. Serve hot alongside your favorite weeknight sides!
