Ham, Swiss cheese, Dijon, and oh-so-buttery Hawaiian rolls, all baked to absolute perfection. So easy and perfect for a big crowd!

This is technically classified as an appetizer. You know, for all those big crowds and for general entertaining. It’s easy to make, it serves 12, and it’s a crowd favorite. It’s a no-brainer.

But hey, I will absolutely make this for dinner on the regular for a party of two. And there’s absolutely no shame in that at all.

Super buttery Hawaiian rolls baked until the cheese has melted into all that ooey gooey goodness. And the buttery-Dijon insides with the ham. So so good.

And because they’re sliders, they’re quite small so they tend to disappear VERY QUICKLY. So be sure to keep count. It’ll go by fast!
