How to make Ham and Cheese Sliders from scratch
They look fancy but are super easy to make. First, the dough is made by mixing together ingredients to form a simple dough. The dough is left to rest and rise and is then rolled out with a rolling pin.
Ham and cheese slices are placed on the bottom half of the dough and it’s rolled up and sliced into portions. These portions are brushed with an egg wash and then baked until golden.

Tips for Easy Ham and Cheese Sliders
– The Ham and Cheese Sliders are quick to assemble. You can make the dough the night before, and then place it in the fridge for the second rising. Slice the ham and cheese the night before, so that everything is ready for assembly on the day of baking.
– Swiss Cheese works great for this recipe—you get the ultimate cheese pull! If you don’t find it in a store near you, try cheddar, mozzarella, Monterey jack, or provolone.
– You can also create pull-apart buns in the air fryer. Knead the dough and allow it to rise for 5 minutes at 140°F in the air fryer. Create and fill the bread rolls. Place them in the basket, allowing the rolls to touch each other. Cook for 20 minutes at 185°F. At the 15-minute mark, give the sliders a quick egg wash before it finished baking the last 5 minutes.
