Southern Mom Loves: Black Forest Ham & Swiss Garlic Bread Sliders for Game Day

Black Forest Ham & Swiss Garlic Bread Sliders for Game Day

Saturday, January 21, 2017

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Save-A-Lot. The opinions and text are all mine.

With football season in full swing, you might be planning a Big Game party, but throwing one doesn't mean you have to break the bank. I went shopping and created an absolutely delicious recipe for Black Forest Ham & Swiss Garlic Bread Sliders for a crowd and served them with a mess of seasoned fries and sodas for around $20. You can feed everyone at your Big Game party for less, you just have to know where to shop! Believe me, these hot, melty, garlicky, sweet & fluffy Hawaiian bread sliders will have your guests coming back for more without putting a huge dent in your wallet.

At the end of this post I'll be giving away $50 in Save-A-Lot gift cards to one lucky reader so they can recreate this delicious spread for themselves! [CLOSED]

A Game Day party doesn't have to be complicated. You really only need one STAR dish, and make enough of it for everyone to get their fill, a tasty side and lots of it, and drinks.

A big pan of gooey hot sliders will do the trick, and who doesn't like ham and cheese? Make them with sweet, fluffy Hawaiian rolls and give them the irresistible flavor of buttery garlic bread with Italian seasonings and parmesan cheese and you've got a winner.

I don't mind if I do.

With them, I'm serving my favorite seasoned fries in fun grabbable cups. I got enough to serve two batches. One batch on the table and one prepped and in the warming drawer of the oven for when the first batch runs out. Mmmmm...fries for days.

Just squeeze on some ketchup, grab a fork, and you're served.

And for my drink, I grabbed a 6 pack of Coca-Cola Classic (the choice of Southerners) and put it in a bucket with some ice on the table.

Aaaaaaand you're done! The prep work can be done ahead of time so you can enjoy the party instead of having to run around filling up dishes. Set it out on a big table or counter and let everyone help themselves.

I visited my neighborhood Save-A-Lot here in Jackson. Find the closest store near you here and look for the $5 off $35 coupon* in their ad to save even more. *participating stores only

I'm assuming you have butter, garlic, Italian seasoning, and a shaker of Parmesan cheese in your fridge. The only other things you'll need for this entire spread are:
  • Hawaiian Rolls-$2.29 ea.
  • Seasoned Fries-$2.69 ea.
  • Black Forest Ham-$4.49
  • Swiss cheese singles-$2.29
  • Coca-Cola 6 pack-$2.75
  • Total: $19.49 + tax *Prices may vary by location.
Yessir. That is exactly what I spent. Not just on the sliders, but for the whole shebang! #SwitchAndSave up to 40%. With prices like these, Save-A-Lot is your Big Game Headquarters. You can even get your paper products there.

Now for that recipe. These are super-easy. Just layer, top, and bake and you have an amazing party dish right out of the oven.

Black Forest Ham & Swiss Garlic Bread Sliders

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 25 minutes
makes: 24 sliders
Source: Holly of Southern Mom Loves

  • 2-12 oz. packages of Hawaiian sweet rolls (12 rolls each)
  • 1-16 oz. pkg. deli-sliced Black Forest ham
  • 1-12 oz. pkg. of sliced Swiss cheese (16 slices)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of melted butter
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese

1. Preheat the oven to 325° F and line a large baking sheet with foil.
2. Remove your rolls from the packaging and using a large serrated bread knife, slice them in half.

3. Fit the 2 bottom layers into a 10"x13" baking dish.

4. Arrange 8 of the swiss cheese slices over the bottom layer.

5. Arrange a slice of ham, folded in fourths, over each bun bottom. I'm doing it this way because I want people to be able to pull these apart without pulling ham out of the neighboring sliders.

6. Layer the remaining 8 slices of swiss over the ham.

7. Cover with the bun tops and use your knife to poke holes through the bun corners to help them pull apart more easily after baking.

8. Next combine the melted butter, garlic, seasonings, and parmesan in a small bowl.

9. Place the slider dish on top of that foil-lined baking sheet from earlier (this might get messy) and spoon and spread the garlic mixture over the buns.

10. Cover tightly with foil and bake for around 25 minutes, then remove the foil and broil until the tops are browned (around 3 minutes.)

And you're ready to serve your hungry guests, for less!
