• Ham & Cheese Sliders

    Okay, folks… I’m pretty sure this is the absolute VERY best recipe in the world. Seriously. If I could, I would marry these sliders. They are absolutely amazing! It makes me want to buy a Pederson’s ham once a week and only live off sliders.

    THIS is the recipe I’ve been teasing y’all about for the past couple weeks. Once you try it, you’ll totally get it. And, you’re welcome… in advance. With all that leftover Easter ham, this is TOTALLY what I’d be making.



    1/3 Cup Mayonnaise
    1/3 Cup Miracle Whip
    24 White Dinner Rolls or Slider Buns
    24 Pieces Pederson’s Ham
    8 Slices Swiss Cheese, quartered into small slices
    1 Tablespoon Poppy Seeds
    1 1/2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
    1/2 Cup Butter, melted
    1 Tablespoon Minced Onion
    1/2 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce


    1. Preheat oven to 350°.
    2. In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and Miracle Whip. Spread onto both sides of the center of each roll or bun.
    3. Place a slice of ham and a slice of cheese in each roll or bun.
    4. Close sliders and place closely on a baking sheet.
    5. Whisk together poppy seeds, mustard, butter, minced onion, and Worcestershire sauce.
    6. Pour evenly over all sliders and let sit for 10 minutes.
    7. Cover with foil and bake for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
    8. Remove foil and bake for an additional 2 minutes.

    Makes 24 sliders.

      In these parts, we call these Funeral Sandwiches, and I just wouldn’t think of dying if nobody was gonna make these for my repast!

      I just made 48 to take to the funeral of a lady from Church who was really nice and one summer, when we were away for 2 weeks on vacation, she came over every day to pick the Japanese beetles off of my scuppernongs and okra. (That is a friend! And I didn’t even know beetles liked scuppernongs!)

      Miss Sippy (that was her name — a childhood nickname, I believe) died at the age of 92. She married the man of her dreams at 19, and was pregnant when her husband went off to fight in World War II. He never lived to see their daughter, who also died young — I want to say TB or polio. Anyway, she lived alone the rest of her life, always the happiest woman, and I never once — not ONCE — saw her without a smile on her face. My friend Marnie thought she was a little tetched, but I know different. Miss Sippy told me once that happiness is a choice, and every morning she woke up and chose to be happy that day. And so she was.

      I also will bake off a couple pans of these in the morning, wrap them tightly with foil, and put them in those syrofoam containers designed to keep catering trays warm. You know the ones? Anyway, wrapped up tightly and packed into the back seat of my husband’s Rover, these make a great lunch when the he and the boys head up to the cabin for hunting. (If I’m going, I’ll hunt some, but I like to cook real meals. Excuse me all the way to Halifax and back, but I need vegetables, and a high fiber diet helps prevent cancer! My oncologist husband should understand that!)

      Anyway, the only difference, really, between my Great Aunt Millie’s recipe and yours is she always put a dollop of pimento cheese on the bottom piece of bun before putting the ham down. I’ve had them with and without, and once you’ve had them with, you are sort of ruined for having them any other way.

        Never thought of the pimento cheese, and I LOVE it! Will try it next time and yes, your oncologist hubby should listen. He doesn’t want to become his own patient!!
