Can I be honest? Mayo & ham sandwiches makes me gag. No seriously, I just can’t take it. I see people clean the knife with their tongue and it makes me shudder. I am good with Mayo baked into recipes or chicken/tuna salad. But please give me Mustard any other time.
For me, ham/pork is always better with mustard instead. I once had a mustard seed crusted pork tenderloin that was too die for. I really should try to recreate that recipe…but it was done so perfectly at the restaurant, that I don’t want to screw up that memory. 😉
With Easter this weekend, I know must of us are going to have some Ham leftovers to use. Since Jorge is flying out for work on Sunday, we decided to celebrate Easter a little early this year. We had a big meal for two with one of the Smithfield Anytime Hams as the highlight of our meal. It’s already sliced (with no bone) and is a much better size for just us two.
I used the leftovers we had to make these delicious messy Mustard, Ham & Cheese Sliders. The sweet rolls, melted cheese, ham and mustardy sauce are the perfect combination. I like to use this fancy imported French mustard because I am a crazy mustard person who loves fancy special mustards…however, in a pinch, I have made this with regular dijon mustard and they were delicious then too. 😉
These sliders are incredibly easy to make — we are talking 20 minutes, start to finish and ALWAYS a crowd pleaser! Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Quick Update: These babies are now one of the most requested recipe from friends and family. I take them to potlucks and parties all the time and there is never a single bite leftover…even when I triple the recipe! I prepare them ahead (even drizzling on the sauce), then cover the baking dish in foil to transfer them to wherever we are going. Then I bake them at my final location. We even heated them up on a grill once while tailgating and they were perfect then too!
