      Melty cheese and golden toasty buns are the stuff slider dreams are made of. These tasty little hot turkey and ham sandwiches are perfect for a party or great for lunch.  Have some people over to watch the game? Throw some sliders in the oven for the perfect game time snack! They are tasty, toasty and so easy to make too!

      Of course green egg and ham sliders were a must have entree for the Dr. Seuss themed birthday party.  But I wasn’t sure if some people might be a little squeamish about the green eggs.

   Besides, if sliders were going to be the focal point, I figured some of the bigger eaters might want some variety.

    So something simple and complimentary seemed in order.  I love that you can prep sliders like these ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator until it’s time to bake them off.

   So after making a triple batch of green egg and ham sliders, I whipped up a triple batch of these.

    Luckily a triple batch of sliders fits perfectly on a half sheet pan, and two half sheets fit in the oven together nicely.  So the day of the party, I had an oven full of slider goodness!

     As I was putting these together, I was tempted to trick them out with something else to make them a little fancier.  But every topping I could think of ran the risk of turning off some of those same people who might not like the green eggs. So I figured simple might be better.

     And you know what? Sometimes simple really is better.  There isn’t a whole lot to these, nothing groundbreaking or crazy.

    But the simplicity allows each flavor to really shine. The soft, slightly sweet bread with the golden buttery top. The gooey melted cheese and the slightly salty meat all come together to create something greater than the sum of the parts.

    The neighbor kid agreed.  He worked up an appetite playing at our house the next day. 

So I warmed him one up.  He gobbled it down and asked me what was on it so he could go home and see if his gram could whip him up one.

Of course I went in and warmed him up another! All 72 sliders were gone the day after the party and that is really saying something given the amount of other food available!

So next time you are looking for a super fun snack, a great lunch for a few people or a tailgate nosh, be sure to make a batch (or 3!) of these sandwiches! And let me know what your favorite slider combinations are in the comments!

Easy variations on this slider recipe:

This recipe is super simple to change to match your needs.  That is one of the best parts about it.

We often do just hot ham and cheese sliders.  It’s the same principal, just add more ham and no turkey.

Slices of  provolone, colby-jack, cheddar or swiss cheese are fabulous in place of the shredded mozzarella.  They are easier to keep on the sandwich too!

Sometimes we add a little mustard to the mayonnaise before we spread it over the rolls. Depending on your filling a bit of garlic salt in the butter on top could be amazing!

You could even get fancy and add craisins and pesto to you sliders and make a version of Tish’s tasty turkey grilled cheese sliders.  This recipe is just begging you to make it your own!

If you find a combination that is out of this world good, please let me know about it. I’d love to try it too! Just let me know in the comments or on social media!
