Many times at the holidays we end up with leftover ham from those wonderful family dinners. Are you tired of the same ol’ rewarming over and over again? These Hot Ham and Cheese Sliders will have your family happily waiting for leftovers.

Here in the South, ham is a traditional New Year’s dish. It is served with collards, black-eyed peas, and cornbread. This is considered to give you good luck throughout the upcoming year.

Perhaps you are looking for a different way to serve up your traditional Southern New Years Day feast. Well, these little Hot Ham and Cheese Sliders are the perfect party food.

These sliders are so simple to make. Many times I will change up the poppy seed dressing on top just depending on what I have in the house.

If you aren’t someone that enjoys the sweet Hawaiian-type rolls just switch them out for regular dinner rolls.

This recipe is extremely versatile.

I really hope y’all will give these a try and let us know what you think.

Make it a great day!
