Do you lean more towards cold sandwiches or warm sandwiches? I’ve always been a cold sandwich kind of gal but once adulthood hit, I’ve been all about the warm, melted cheese kind of sandwiches – philly cheesesteaks, meatball subs and now this. And as you’ve seen in yesterday’s post, you know I can’t get enough of that mango fire cheddar. And with all of that KING HAWAIIAN swag I received recently, I just had to put two and two together, except I used up all the slider buns before making this.

Hey, when you have a bag of KING HAWAIIAN to yourself, it’s kind of difficult to NOT finish the entire bag for dinner.

So upon replenishing the KING’S HAWAIIAN slider buns, I just had to make these sandwiches. Loaded with fresh arugula, roma tomatoes, honey baked ham and mango fire cheddar, these sliders get baked to melted cheese goodness as they’re topped off in a buttery, poppy seed dressing. They’re an incredible crowd pleaser during football/basketball/baseball season or a simple lunch gathering with friends. Either way, these will be a hit with everyone! Jason and I made 8 of these together and we managed to finish them all in one sitting.

Yeah, they’re just that good.

But before you stock up on some KING’S HAWAIIAN to make this, I just have to share My Ultimate King’s Hawaiian Sandwich Challenge that’s happening now. Now if you love KING’S HAWAIIAN just as much as I do, I highly suggest showing off your ultimate KING’S HAWAIIAN sandwich recipe in this contest. The winner could win a year supply of KING’S HAWAIIAN and an all-expenses paid dinner for 6 friends at a local restaurant in your area! So hurry on over and enter here!

    Made these tonight – and oh gosh – they were absolutely, wonderfully delicious! Not your ordinary ham and cheese. Definitely added to the dinner rotation. So simple, too! The cheese was an excellent addition – anything else might have been a little boring. I made a special trip to the store just for the cheese and I’m so glad I did! Thanks for the great recipe!
