Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Grease bottom and sides of a 9x13-inch baking dish or disposable aluminum pan.

  • Cut Hawaiian rolls in half. Arrange 24 bottom halves in the baking dish.

  • Mix melted butter, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, and poppy seeds together in a bowl. Brush 1/2 half the butter mixture over the bottom halves in the baking dish.

  • Layer pulled pork, ham, Swiss cheese, and 2 pickle chips to each roll, in this order, and cover with tops of rolls. Brush remaining butter mixture over the tops. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bake sliders in the preheated oven, covered, for 20 minutes. Remove foil and press down the tops of the sliders with a spatula to flatten. Bake until sliders are heated through and top is crispy, about 15 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

Carnitas work well instead of the pulled pork in this recipe also.

Made as written except that I used Pepperidge Farm slider buns due to personal preference and to save on the grocery bill. These turned out really good. The one problem I had was that there was not enough sauce. It was thick to begin with so refrigerating it for 20 minutes didn't change the consistency of it. I thought it would melt/run down as it baked but it all stayed on top of the bun which made these a little dry. I recommend doubling the butter/sauce. Overall a good recipe and one that would go over well at a party. Read More

Used store brand sliders rolls instead of the Hawaiian rolls. Didn t use seasme seeds personal preference. I just placed the rolls on a foil lined baking sheet didn t grease it. Also I used the presliced sandwich pickles instead of hamburger dills. They came out pretty good. I was worried they would be soggy but they weren t. I will definitely make again maybe add more cheese?? Great quick meal with leftovers for the weekend! Read More

Having to sub home smoked bacon and pork butt worked fine. Also subbed bread and butter pickles for dill. I only wish I had thought to grill some onions too. Read More
