These EASY hot Ham and Pineapple Sliders are PERFECT for game day. Make a double batch to feed a crowd!
Get ready, people!!!! I’m about to share my absolute favorite recipe for feeding a crowd. These Hot Ham and Pineapple sliders are ooey and gooey, and last about 3 seconds on a party table. Bring these little beauties out and you’ll be the most popular person there!
I love how low effort these are with a BIG result. I regularly make 2-3 pans of these for bigger groups, and never ever have leftovers.
Make ahead and bake at a party, or in your own kitchen, you’ll be glad you did! Serve with some condiments (if you MUST) like extra mustard, maybe some pickles – but trust me, you won’t need them!!
You can use leftover ham from Christmas or Easter, or you can get shaved deli ham and call it good. It won’t matter, the soft bread with the buttery topping and baked up – it’s all delicious.

Here’s how it looks in action:
- 12 slider buns
- 8 slices swiss cheese
- 9 oz sliced deli ham
- Fresh OR canned pineapple sliced
- ½ stick butter
- 1 Tbs poppy seeds
- 1 Tbs whole grain mustard
- 2 tsp garlic minced
- Salt and pepper
- Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish.
- Layer the bottom halves of the slider buns in the dish.
- Layer the ham, pineapple and cheese over the buns.
- Top with the top halves of the slider buns.
- Melt the butter, and whisk in the poppy seeds, mustard, garlic, salt & pepper.
- Brush topping over tops of sliders. If you have any leftover, pour it evenly over the buns.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes until cheese is melt-y, and the tops are browned.
- Run a knife through the roll edges to make them easier to pull apart.
- If you are making more than 1 dozen, just grab a big rimmed baking sheet and double up!
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce mixed in the topping adds a lovely savory/salty flavor
- Adding caramelized onions into the sliders is a great way to bring more flavor. Do it!!
- EASY SUBSTITUTIONS
- Dijon mustard is a great substitute for the whole grain mustard
- Use garlic powder in place of fresh garlic if that's what you have!
- Switch the swiss cheese for provolone.
