Super Bowl Sunday Sandwiches
Confession… I am not a huge football fan and rarely watch it, but I love Super Bowl Sunday! Why? Because there is always great food, beer and great company. I don’t think I’ve ever met a super bowl party that I didn’t like and with that being said I am definitely looking forward to the crawl fish boil this Sunday!
Now, back to food, this week is dedicated to the super bowl and today’s recipe for the best little sandwiches you’ll ever eat. I recently had these at one of our Supper Clubs and really enjoyed them. Plus, Heather (our wonderful host) said they were really easy, which as you all know is big deal to me. So, I decided to test these little babies out and make them for the Wine and Wig party I had last Friday and needless to say, they were a HUGE hit. Now, if a room full of women like them, I am absolutely positive a group of men will love them… Oh yes, these little babies will be a hit for sure!
Ham and Cheese Sliders
24 good white dinner rolls
24 pieces good honey ham
24 small slices Swiss cheese
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup miracle whip
Poppy seed sauce (you probably could half this...I had plenty extra)
1 Tablespoon poppy seeds
1 1/2 Tablespoons yellow mustard(or Dijon mustard)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Tablespoon minced onion
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and miracle whip. Spread onto both sides of the center of each roll. Place a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss inside of each roll. Close rolls and place them into a large baking dish or heavy cookie sheet. Place very close together. In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the poppy seed sauce ingredients. Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches. You do not have to use all of the sauce! Just use enough to cover the tops. Let sit 10 minutes or until butter sets slightly. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes or until tops are slightly brown and crispy. Serve warm.
** sandwiches can be assembled a day ahead and kept in the fridge ready to bake**
