Ham and Cheese Sliders with Maple Mustard Spread

Ham and Cheese Sliders with Maple Mustard Spread

Ham and Cheese Sliders

Sliders are all the rage and with Superbowl fast approaching I see these little cuties making a huge appearance this year. Ham and Cheese Sliders with Maple Mustard Spread would make the perfect finger food for your party. Super simple to make up a large batch at once and completely filling for your guests. Ciabatta rolls can even be split in half again once baked which helps stretch your finger foods farther at your next party (keep mini rolls together with decorative toothpicks).

These Ham and Cheese Sliders with Maple Mustard Spread can be made up quickly for a quick lunch as well that my whole family loves. It’s really a ham and cheese sandwich but the dressing ads a punch of flavor quick to become a family favorite. I generally make up a large batch of the dressing and keep it in the fridge at all time as it’s become such a family favorite for a quick lunch.

I like to bake my sandwiches because I like my bread crunch, however my husband prefers to microwave his because it melts his cheese but keeps his bread soft. To each their own I guess right? Truly it’s the maple mustard spread that makes all the difference.
