Cuban Sliders

These wonderful little rolls are baked until lightly toasted and the cheese melts. The leftover King's Hawaiian ham sliders keep really well in the fridge, and they make a lovely cold snack. Followers of my blog,, go nuts for these! —Serene Herrera, Dallas, Texas
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    2 dozen


  • 2 packages (12 ounces each) Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • 1-1/4 pounds thinly sliced deli ham
  • 9 slices Swiss cheese (about 6 ounces)
  • 24 dill pickle slices
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Without separating rolls, cut each package of rolls in half horizontally; arrange bottom halves in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Layer with ham, cheese and pickles; replace top halves of rolls.
  • In a microwave, melt butter; stir in onion and mustard. Drizzle over rolls. Bake, covered, 10 minutes. Uncover; bake until golden brown and heated through, 5-10 minutes longer.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Hawaiian sweet rolls are tender and slightly sweet. If they’re not in your store, use egg or potato rolls, which are softer and richer than regular dinner rolls.
  • These King's Hawaiian ham sliders might just be the perfect party food. Find more yummy slider recipes here.

      We loved these little sandwiches! Only change I made was to cut the recipe in half since I was only feeding three people. Will definitely make these again when we can have football parties!

      One word-yum!! These sliders were a big hit for a small lunch gathering I hosted. I loved that I could assemble them ahead of time, and pop in the oven before my guests arrived. They looked impressive and tasted amazing-will definitely make again. I followed the recipe except that I used sliced turkey in addition to the ham.

      My husband and I enjoyed this twist on toasted cheese. I only changed dill pickles to bread and butter chips. I'll make them again. !

      I was born and bred in the home city of the Cuban sandwich, in an area in which I still live. Therefore I can attest to the fact that these sandwiches bear very little real resemblance to the [near] sanctified, authentic Cuban sandwich. That written, I can also attest that these little sandwiches are downright delicious, even if they are mis-named. Also, they are easy to prepare and people love them, so make lots! P.S.: If you want to add a little more authenticity, add some Cuban roasted mojo pork along with the sliced ham. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Serene!
