Ingredients

  • 12 small dinner rolls or slider buns
  • 12 slices Deli Ham
  • 6 slices Baby Swiss Cheese halved

FOR THE SRIRACHA MAYO

  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • Salt to taste

FOR THE CRACK SAUCE

  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1 small shallot minced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon spicy chili flakes
  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Instructions

MAKE THE SRIRACHA MAYO

  • Whisk together the mayo, sriracha, lemon juice, garlic and salt until well combined. Set aside.

FOR THE CRACK HAM AND CHEESE SLIDERS

  • Heat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Set the bottoms of the rolls in a large baking pan and slather on the sriracha mayo.
  • Add to each a slice of ham. Fold the slice so it properly fits on the bun.
  • Top the ham with a half slice of cheese.
  • Add the bun tops.

FOR THE CRACK SAUCE

  • Whisk together the melted butter, mustard, shallot, garlic, chili flakes and Worcestershire sauce. Generously brush the mixture over the slider buns. Use it all up! Sprinkle on a few more chili flakes for good measure!
  • For Crispy Sliders: Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the cheeses are nice and melty and the buns are toasted.
  • For Soft Sliders: Cover in aluminum foil and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the cheeses are nice and melty.
  • Serve!

Notes

NOTE: You can let the ham and cheese sliders sit for up to a day after you brush on the crack sauce. Just store the baking dish in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook. Waiting at least one hour to bake them lets the crack sauce firm up a bit and better permeate the buns.
