  • Air fryer OR oven


  • 1 package Hawaiian rolls (12 pack)
  • 8-10 slices cheese your preference (Swiss, white cheddar, white American, or provolone work well)
  • 4-6 slices leftover ham or about 12 slices of deli ham
  • ½ cup garlic butter sauce
  • ½ tablespoons honey
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a bowl, combine ½ cup garlic butter with 3 tablespoons honey. Mix well.
    Holding two glass bowls: one has the garlic butter mixture with a basting brush in it, and the other has honey
  • Slice a 12 pack of Hawaiian rolls in half. This is important: do not throw out the cardboard container! You will use it to bake the sliders.
    Spread the honey garlic butter mixture on the inside of the rolls. I use a basting brush to evenly brush it across.

  • Top both sides of the rolls with 8-10 slices of cheese. Then, top one side with 4-6 slices of leftover ham (or about 12 slices of deli ham).

  • Place the top layer of rolls back over the bottom layer, then evenly brush more of the honey garlic butter mixture over the top.

  • Season the top of the rolls with salt and pepper to taste.
    Add the completed rolls back to the cardboard tray they came in. Pack it tightly against the rolls.
    Cover the cardboard tray with foil.

  • Air fryer instructions: Preheat your air fryer to 350°F and cook for 8 minutes or until the cheese is nicely melted.
    Oven instructions: Preheat your oven to 350°F and bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese is nicely melted.
    Remove foil, cut, serve, and enjoy!

  • Use the cardboard tray the sliders are packaged in. My favorite part about making Hawaiian roll slider recipes is that you can use the cardboard tray they come in as a baking tray. This saves you from having to clean a baking dish!
  • Slice before serving. Because this recipe uses large slices of leftover ham, I recommend slicing these little sandwiches before serving them rather than just pulling them apart.
  • Use your favorite deli ham. Leftover ham is my favorite for this recipe, but you can also use deli ham. You will need around 12 slices to have enough ham for each roll. Fold them over when placing them on the rolls.
