Baked Ham and Cheese Sliders

Editing photos while hungry is not recommended, I want these all over again!

This recipe is one passed down from my mom and is a crowd pleaser.  It’s perfect for casual company and a herd of hungry teenagers alike!  It’s a million times better than just a plain old ham and cheese sandwich.  Truly.  Make more than you think you will need, cause each person will scarf down at least 4 of these buttery, cheesy, delicious sandwiches.  Have plenty of napkins on hand, too!

Somehow, this recipe became known as the camping recipe in our family.  We glamp in a medium size camper that is outfitted with a really adorable tiny oven, so it’s an easy go-to recipe for us.  We save the fire cooking for other dishes like hot dogs and s’mores.

Fire’s building steam as we eat dinner and look forward to s’mores for dessert!

For this recipe, you’ll want to get those yummy Hawaiian dinner rolls, if you can find them.  If not, then any package of pre-cooked dinner roll will work.  Did I mention that sometimes we leave our healthy eating at the camper door?  Ha!  Most times when we camp, I make regular healthy food, but occasionally we indulge in the fun stuff.

Gooey, melty cheese…. yum!

We went biking on some fun trails while we were there and I found some pine cones!  I love being near the pine trees and seeing the pine cones.  So of course, I had to stop and gather a few to bring back and decorate our picnic table.  Plus, they made fun photo practice.



Here’s my hubby and dishwasher extraordinaire!  I love that his hat says Live to Explore in this picture- perfect.

Charlie girl, my sweet puppy.

This hairy beast is Charlie, our furry baby.  She’s camera shy.  I was lucky to get this one shot. All the other ones are of the back of her head.

Oh wait!  This is the closest she came to looking at me.  Goober.

We had our son with us, but 15 year old boys don’t like to have their picture taken… what can you do?

He wasn’t cooperating, either!
Supposedly edible… I’ll let you go first.

There was a bush next to our site that had these gorgeous purple berries.  Tim googled what they are (hey, don’t judge our use of technology while camping) and discovered that they are edible, but not very tasty.  I passed. I was too busy eating these delicious sliders.
