Ham and Cheese Honey Mustard Sliders

Ham and Cheese Honey Mustard Sliders
Yield:   20 2-inch sliders
Cook Time:   10-12 minutes (for biscuits)
Tips:  Refrigerated flaky biscuits (such as buttermilk or country biscuits) may be used instead of making your own homemade Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits; however, you will need to slice the refrigerated biscuits in half before baking due to their larger size. Pre-packaged miniature biscuits or rolls may be used instead of baking your own biscuits, but you will need to skip the step of coating the tops of biscuits with stone-ground mustard. May also be used with deli-sliced chicken or turkey, and/or other deli-sliced cheeses, if desired.
Suggestion:  Perfect served at parties, holidays or any social gathering, or as a fun lunch or snack.
Sliders are always the perfect party food. They moderately satisfy the hungry appetite, and can be made in an endless variety of ways with all sorts of creative combinations. These Ham and Cheese Honey Mustard Sliders and fun and simple yet quite elegant, and are extremely easy to whip up. The photo above shows this slider recipe made with homemade Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits. However, if you would prefer to not make your own biscuits from scratch, you can also purchase a 12-oz. package of refrigerated buttermilk or country biscuits, though you will need to cut each biscuit in half before you place them in the oven due to their larger size. If you are short of time, you can also purchase a package of pre-cooked miniature biscuits (about 2 inches square or round, such as small Hawaiian style buns) and skip the baking process all together. Keep in mind, that there will be a slight variation in the
preparation of these ham and cheese sliders, depending on which type of biscuit you use. Making your own homemade flaky biscuits is very easy and doesn't take much time at all; plus, when you make your own homemade biscuits, you are able to cut the biscuits into perfect little 2-inch slider sizes. Biscuits made from scratch also always have that undeniable homemade flavor and aroma. Lastly, if you choose to use a package of pre-cooked miniature rolls or biscuits and skip the baking process all together, you will not be able to spread the stone-ground mustard on top of the biscuits. (The stone-ground mustard topping gives these ham and cheese sliders extra flavor and flair.) Still, no matter which method you choose, these sliders will be very tasty!

This recipe calls for the deli-sliced ham, because thinly sliced ham does a great job of beautifying these little sandwiches, in the way the thin ham slices can wrinkle so easily, giving each slider a fancy appearance. When using the very thin deli-sliced ham, you should use one entire slice per slider. You can, however, also use the thicker sandwich slices of ham; though if you do, be sure to use only 1/2 of a slice per each slider (just as you will the swiss cheese slices).

Lastly, don't hesitate to make a little more of the butter and green onion mixture or the Honey Mustard Spread if needed. Though you will likely not have any leftovers, be thankful if you do, because these Ham and Cheese Honey Mustard Sliders make a great quick snack or lunch!


  • Biscuits
  • Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits (see recipe) (or one 12-oz package of refrigerated buttermilk or    country biscuits)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons stone-ground mustard

  • Sandwich Filling
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions (white and green parts)
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 20 slices deli-sliced ham (sandwich size)
  • 10 slices pre-sliced square swiss cheese (sandwich size)

  • Honey Mustard Spread

  • 3 tablespoons stone-ground-mustard
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons honey
Follow recipe directions for Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits, yet use a 2-inch biscuit cutter (instead of a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter). (Alternatively, you can use a 12-oz package of regrigerated buttermilk or country biscuits and cut each biscuit in half before placing in the oven.) Before placing in oven, using a table knife or the back of a small spoon, spread tops of biscuits lightly with stone ground mustard. Once baked, place biscuits on a cooling rack and allow iscuits to cool before assemblying into sliders.

Honey Mustard Spread

In a small bowl, combine stone-ground mustard, mayonnaise and honey and stir until well-blended.

Slider Assembly

Cut biscuits into halves. Spread butter and green onion mixture over tops and bottoms of biscuits. Fold 1 slice of ham in half then in half again and place on bottom biscuit slices. (Tip: For a decorative look, crinkle the ham to create wavy edges.) Cut cheese slices into four pieces, then place 2 slices over folded ham slice, partially turning the second piece of cheese so corners do not match up (this creates a more decorative look). Spoon about 1 teaspoon of Honey Mustard Spread on top of cheese and top with top biscuit slice. Serve.
