It’s Saturday, so you know what that means….Gameday! So, naturally, as with the past two gamedays, today’s recipe is of the “tailgate” variety. Before I go on though, I must confess, that I did not make these. My fabulous mother was the cook responsible for such deliciousness! These are actually from last week’s gameday (ya know…the one where Auburn broke my heart and played terribly against Mississippi State). I was busy making the Rotel Cups while mommy dearest was hard at work on these puppies.
Anyways, these lil sliders were indeed delicious. That poppyseed sauce is crazy good. The only problem is that I kept wanting to eat more of them. I loved how the bread was a lil toasted crispy on the outside, but the inside was gooey melted cheese. These actually reminded me of a teeny tiny version of a Momma Goldberg’s (aka: Momma G’s) sandwich. If you don’t know what Momma G’s is, allow me explain. It’s a deli restaurant that has been in Auburn for a long time. It’s just a little shack of a restaurant. But their steamed sandwiches are just so good! Now they’ve got a whole chain of restaurants throughout the southeast. The original location in Auburn is one of the “must-visit” food joints around campus.
I hope you enjoy these tasty sliders at your next football get together! And I hope Auburn can pull off a win today. WAR EAGLE!
- 12 good white dinner rolls
- 12 pieces good honey ham
- 12 small slices Swiss cheese
- 1/6 cup mayonnaise
- 1/6 cup miracle whip
- Poppy seed sauce:
- 1/2 Tablespoon poppyseeds
- 1 Tablespoons yellow mustard
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 Tablespoon minced onion
- 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and miracle whip. Spread onto both sides of the center of each roll. Place a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss inside of each roll. Close rolls and place them into a large baking dish or heavy cookie sheet. Place very close together.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the poppyseed sauce ingredients. Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches. You do not have to use all of the sauce! Just use enough to cover the tops. Let sit 10 minutes or until butter sets slightly.
- Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes or until tops are slightly brown and crispy. Serve warm.
