Potlucks and parties seem to have two disctinct seasons in my neck of the woods.

Summer & Football/Holiday.

And the two really don’t criss cross when it comes to types of food brought/offered. Well, there may be an exception with burgers and mac & cheese. But I will always, always make an exception for mac & cheese.

Another thing I will always make an exception for? Sliders.

They’re perfect for just this sort of thing.

Simple recipes, made and baked all in one dish, and grab and go with the finished product.

  • 24 count pkg Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • 1/2 lb thinly sliced ham
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese
  • crisp dill pickle slices

For The Dijon Onion Butter Spread

  • 2 tbsp dried minced onion
  • 1 stick melted butter
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard


  • Lightly spray a 9x13" baking dish with non stick cooking spray.

To Make The Dijon Onion Butter Spread

  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the mustard and melted butter. Stir in the onion until evenly combined.

    Love these sliders !! They were a big hit at church ! I didn’t take any home ! I did play around with the cheese . I added shredded snaked bacon cheddar with the Swiss the first time I made them . The second time I used 4 kinds I cheese such as Swiss, sargento’s garlic&herb, tomato basil jack and Muenster cheese. I love cheese ! This will be a hit anywhere you take them ! Thank you for posting AJ

    1. Cheese is my love language, AJ! I agree you can’t really go wrong in that dept, and they’re still gonna be loved by all. The combo in the recipe is what designates it as ‘cuban’, but not essential.

    1. So glad you enjoyed them Crissy. Yellow mustard is a great idea!! I couldn’t agree more, sliders are so easy with less fuss and less mess.
