The best part is how easy they are to make by just cutting the sweet rolls in half, not even separating them! Remove the sweet rolls from the packaging and, using a serrated knife, slice the slab of sweet rolls in half from the side. The result will be two rectangular bread slabs (the tops and bottoms of the rolls).

Hawaiian Roll Sandwiches

Pour the cranberry sauce into a bowl. Stir well to create a smooth sauce. Of course, you can always use your homemade cranberry sauce left over from the holidays! Spread a generous layer of the canned cranberry sauce onto the bottom half of the rolls. Save any extras for dipping or adding more later.

Cranberry Sliders

Add the ham over the cranberry sauce. Overlap each piece, covering the entire bottom slab of the Hawaiian sweet rolls. Of course, this can be deli ham, deli turkey, as well as leftover turkey, ham, or even rotisserie chicken!

Thanksgiving Leftover Sliders

Ham Sliders

Add the cheese slices over the ham, covering the entire bottom slab of Sweet Rolls. We suggest either mozzarella cheese or pepper jack cheese (for a little more flavor!). Then, place the roll tops over the cheese.

Pepper Jack Cheese

In a medium bowl, melt the butter in the microwave. Stir in the parmesan cheese, dried parsley, and dried dill to the melted butter.

Butter Glaze

Pour the butter mixture over the tops of the buns. Make sure the mixture covers all tops of the Sweet Rolls. The mixture will naturally pour off the top half of the rolls and into the pan. For extra flavor, lift up the edges of the Sweet Rolls to allow the melted butter mixture to get under the bread as well.

Hawaiian Rolls with Buttery Glaze

Bake the Sweet Roll sliders at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes. The rolls are done when they are slightly more darkened on top and the cheese has melted. Slice the small sandwiches individually and serve hot or cold!
