  1. Are these good if they are not eaten immediately after they come out of the oven? I’m hosting a group of my friends and would like to prepare, in advance, and have out upon their arrival.

    This was very delicious! My picky wife highly approved and I loved that it was so easy to cook. Thank you for sharing!

      1. Making these with leftover Christmas ham to switch it up (we can only eat the same meal for so long). Thanks for the recipe!

    Hi! I am making these for a baby shower this weekend. I saw your comment about preparing them the day before but I have a question. Should I go ahead and brush the butter mixture on??? Or wait to do that until right before I bake them? Thank you!

    1. If you can wait until right before you bake them, that would be best! Let me know how it turns out 🙂

  4. 5 stars
    Ham and cheese is one of my favorite combinations! With your additions of mustard and pickles, I think this recipe will send me straight to heaven. These would be perfect for a party!

    What flavorful sliders! I love the use of King’s Hawaiian Rolls. They take simple recipes to the next level!

  6. Angela,
    I love the recipe and would like to try serving them at a baby shower. However, due to the number of guests, I do not think if will be able to bake them right before the shower and serve them warm. Do you think they would be ok to make the day ahead and serve cold?

    1. Hi Dianne. You should be ok to freeze these in an airtight container for up to a month. To reheat I would defrost either overnight in the fridge or microwave on low, then wrap in foil and bake for a couple of minutes to heat through. Hope this helps and thanks for writing! 🙂

    This recipe was okay but the steps should be in reverse order. It was much easier to spread the Mayo and mustard mixture on before all the lunch meat and cheese went on went on.

    1. Hi Lisa. Thanks so much for your comment. I agree that it would have been easier to do the mayo/mustard mixture before the meat and cheese, and I appreciate you mentioning it! I hope you enjoyed the recipe otherwise and continue to try other recipes from This Delicious House.
