Ham and Cheese Sliders for a Crowd

| |

I'm sharing a recipe from Oma today. She was making these ham and cheese sliders while I was over awhile back and I couldn't help grabbing my camera and capturing the process because they are so, so, SO good and so surprisingly simple!

Did you know that some of our most-pinned posts on Someday I'll Learn are from Nate's mom? You all clearly dig her cheeseburger pie and easy spaghetti sauce recipe. I'm not surprised – they're freaking fantastic! I feel blessed to have Oma as an incredible learning resource for scratch cooking and making food for a crowd. Neither of those are things I had to do much of as a kid, since it was just me and my sister.

I'm still not one to throw big parties or host a ton of people, but the fact is that I have a big family now. Four boys go through a lot of food. So cooking in bulk comes with the territory.

This ham and cheese slider recipe makes 12 rolls, so Oma tripled it when we had a bunch of people over for Thanksgiving.

We find ourselves doubling, tripling and quadrupling recipes pretty often.

If you're heading to a potluck, you could totally make these ham and cheese sliders ahead of time. Line the baking dish with a couple layers of foil to contain any sauce that spills over. After cooking, let it cool for a bit and then gently lift the foil with the ham and cheese sliders out and wrap the whole thing in foil again to make a little pouch. When you get to where you're going, pop the whole thing in the oven for a few more minutes to heat it back up and then unwrap. Voila! Ham and cheese sliders ready to feed a monster crew.

If you used a different meat on these ham and cheese sliders, what would it be? What's your fave sandwich and how might you translate it to a bulk recipe?
