Best Ham for Ham and Cheese Sliders

Did you know there were so many kinds of ham that can make your guests come back for more of these ham and cheese sliders? Any kind of cooked deli ham would work wonderfully in this recipe. Looking for a lighter flavoured ham? Try using a country or Black Forest ham. For a sweeter taste, slice up some honey, brown sugar, or maple glazed ham. Is a strong flavour more to your liking? Turn to a Capicola, a Prosciutto, or a Pancetta ham!

How to store leftover sliders

If there are any of these ham and cheese sliders with poppy seeds left after your Game Day festivities, there are two ways you can use to store them. You can either cover them on a heat-resistant form with plastic wrap or aluminum foil or place these mini sandwiches in an air-tight container until you want to snack on them again.

What to Serve with Ham and Cheese Sliders?

These ham and cheese sliders with poppy seed dressing are a great addition to have on a Game Day table. Pulled pork tacos, chicken sheet pan nachos, and Cajun corn salad are favourite tasty snacks that would be great ideas to choose as sides to accompany this yummy dish. A fun charcuterie board topped with Game Day favourite snacks such as chips, pretzels, popcorn, and candy is another crunchy option.

Would you like a healthier option? Chopped fruit or veggies with dips would be fabulous alternatives to serve. Sweet and flavourful drinks such as pop or fruit-based drinks would round out a fantastic Super Bowl table.
