GIVEAWAY! and Ham and Swiss Sliders with Poppy Seed Sauce

So this blog is relatively new, and I thought it would be fun to celebrate my 50th post by re-posting my very first recipe that started it all: the beloved Ham and Swiss Sliders!  I think I have made these 4 times within the last month for different occasions, and they really are just the greatest little sammies you could imagine.  Everyone LOVES THEM (except John, he doesn't like ham or swiss or mayo..... weirdo, but a hot weirdo)!  If you haven't tried this recipe, YOU SHOULD!  And then let me know what you and your guests think!  And stay tuned, at the end of the post I'm presenting my first GIVEAWAY!!!  

Ham and Swiss Sliders with Poppy Seed Sauce
This has become one of my all time favorite recipes. It is so delicious, so easy, and you can make huge amounts at a time. These sliders are just beautiful and are great for family parties, showers, church functions, etc. You can assemble them the day before and keep them covered in the fridge until you are ready to bake them. You can even substitute some of the ingredients for light alternatives if you're watching what you eat. This recipe can also easily be halved. Enjoy!!

{What you need}
24 good white rolls
24 pieces good honey ham
24 small slices swiss cheese
1/3 mayo
1/3 cup miracle whip

{poppy seed sauce}
1 1/2 TBSP poppy seeds
1 1/2 TBSP yellow mustard
1 stick butter, melted
1 TBSP minced onion
1/2 tsp. worschestershire sauce

In a small bowl, mix together mayo & miracle whip. Spread into both sides of the center of each roll. Place a slice of ham & a slice of swiss inside of each roll. Close rolls & place into a large baking dish or heavy cookie sheet. Place very close together.

In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the poppy seed sauce ingredients. Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches. Let sit 10 minutes, or until butter sets slightly.

Cover with foil & bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover & cook for 2 additional minutes. Serve warm.

These sliders look really delicious! I love the poppy sauce on top, what a delicious twist. I'd make these for my husband and daughter for lunch on a cold day :)

I LOVED the beef stew! It was my first time making stew and as a newly married woman I am always looking for recipes to impress and feed my 6'4" husband! He REALLY loved it and still talks about it. And it makes me happy everytime :)I also made the FRUIT dip for a baby shower which is totally an all time favorite and am going to make it many more times. Loves!

Favorite recipe? Oh man. I've got to say your caramel croissant pudding. LOVED it! I took it to a get-together with some high school friends and they were so impressed. It is almost as beautiful as it is tasty! And I love that it's a LEGITIMATE dessert. Go for the gusto. Who cares if it's not super good for you!

mmm...THE BREADSTICKS!!! I am addicted! I have made them for dinner with just my little family, my sister-in-law's bday party...and several other events :) They were a HUGE hit! Thanks for those nummies! And the sliders are actually a close second, can I say waht you made them for instead? You brought them to us for dinner when Madi was born and they are still the one dish that Jay talks about! We've taken them to friends since and they RAVE!!!

Well Jessie, I love these Sliders as well! My sister gave me this recipe a long time ago, so I was so excited to see it on your blog too! I actually don't like ham, but I made this for my husband and I and I sure did love it all put together like this. Your blog is great, and I hope all good things come to you for all you are doing! :) I am excited to make your breadsticks for my next family party. That will for sure be my favorite recipe, as soon as I make it! :)
