I know, I know.... Don't grill me on the meaning of "slider." I've read all the debates on the true meaning of a slider. The trend now though, is that any mini sandwich can be called a slider, so the name stands. You've probably seen this recipe circulating on the internet. Some are calling them "funeral" sandwiches. They are way too good to be saddled w/ such a sad name though. When I first ran across this recipe, I was intrigued but also a bit skeptical because of the sauce recipe that gets poured over the top. My skepticism won out and I second guessed the sauce recipe. I timidly "brushed" the sauce over the top of the buns, rather than pouring it over the top. One warm, delicious bite and I immediately regretted not using all of the sauce! I have made these several times now and every time, I get asked for the recipe. I've made them for a Superbowl party, 2 funerals, a birthday party, etc... They are just a good all around, easy sandwich to fix and it serves a large group easily. I have used different varieties of meat and cheese to make these. The roast beef and provolone is a good one! Turkey and cheddar. Ham and swiss, etc... Plus..... one of my favorite features - you can prep them the night before! Oh yeah! A Pastor's wife's dream recipe! :-)
1 package of King's Hawaiian Rolls
1/2-1 lb. deli ham, turkey or roast beef
Swiss cheese, Cheddar or Provolone, sliced thin
1/2 c. butter, melted
3 T. Worcestershire sauce
2 T. mustard
2 T. brown sugar
dash of onion powder
Cut rolls in half and lay bottoms on baking pan. Layer the deli meat slices, then cheese and place the top half of the buns back on.Make sure the rolls are separated a bit on the pan, so the sauce can run down the sides of the sandwiches.
Mix together the melted butter, Worcestershire, mustard, brown sugar and onion powder. Pour the whole works over the buns, drenching each one. Cover tightly and marinade anywhere from 4-24 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 15 minutes,uncovered,or until cheese is melted and bun tops are a bit golden.
Lastly - have recipe printed and ready to hand out! :-)
