Leftover Holiday Ham Baked Sliders

My most popular recipe on the blog is my Crock-Pot Brown Sugar Pineapple Ham and needless to say I make it all the time especially during the holidays. I always have leftovers and I love making creative and kid friendly meals with them.
My kiddos love sliders so I thought I would use up a few of our holiday dishes including the ham, cranberry sauce, and mashed potatoes and make Leftover Holiday Ham Baked Sliders for dinner. They turned out better than expected {don't you love when that happens} and we now have different versions of these mini baked sandwiches often! 
For this recipe I use leftover sliced ham from this Crock-Pot Brown Sugar Pineapple Ham.



Ingredients:

Makes 12 sliders
  • 1 package 12 count slider rolls {I use King's Hawaiian brand} 
  • 6 slices leftover baked ham, cut in half {my Crock-Pot recipe here}
  • 1/2 cup leftover mashed potatoes
  • 1/4 cup leftover cranberry sauce {check out my recipe here}
  • 6 slices cheese {I like provolone or white cheddar}
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp ham cooking liquid/juices, optional

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Cut slider rolls in half width wise and place bottom half face up on a large baking sheet.
  3. Now spread leftover mashed potatoes {check out my recipe} on top of the bread.
  4. Top with thick ham slices.
  5. Spread cranberry sauce on top of ham.
  6. Top with 6 slices of cheese. 
  7. Now add the top slider buns on top of the cheese.
  8. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 10 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and discard the foil. 
  10. Add dots of butter and sprinkle with brown sugar on the tops of the sliders.
  11. I like to brush on some of the ham juices on top of the sliders too.
  12. Put bake in the oven and bake for 5 minutes or until the sugar is caramelized.
  13. Cut into individual sliders and serve warm.
There is a reason this ham is my #1 recipe. 
It is easy to make and absolutely delicious!
Check out the easy recipe here.
Start with a 12 pack of slider rolls. 
Cut them in half width wise and place bottom half face up on a large baking sheet.
Do not separate the slider buns!
Now spread leftover mashed potatoes {check out my recipe} on top of the bread.
Top with sliced ham.
Overlap the slices and add a lot {I added 12 half slices}.
Now slather on generous amounts of cranberry sauce.
Top with 6 slices of cheese.
You can use any kind of cheese.
I have used provolone, white cheddar, and Muenster. 
Now add the top slider buns on top of the cheese.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and discard aluminum foil.
Add dots of butter and sprinkle with brown sugar on the tops of the sliders.
I like to brush some of the ham cooking juices on top of the buns too.
Now pop them back in the oven for 5 minutes or until nice and caramelized and crispy on top.
Remove from oven and cut into individual sliders.
Serve warm and enjoy! 
Leftovers never tasted so good!
These sliders are perfect for game day, holidays, and busy weeknights.
