Ham, Brie and Apple Sliders. A Great Sandwich To Serve A Crowd.
This past weekend we were asked to bring ‘something’ to church for pot luck. The theme was ‘soup, salad or sandwich’. I saw that there were several soups and a few salads on the sign up sheet but no sandwiches. I admit, making sandwiches for a crowd can be kind of pricey but these ham, brie and apple sliders won’t break your bank.
I like them because they are sliders. Sliders are code for ‘take a little bit’ and when you are feeding a crowd that is a good thing! The brie and apple are an unexpected additions to the flavor pallet and will make your sliders have that something different than a traditional ham sandwich.
Let’s Get Started!
- 24 slider rolls. I used a Hawaiian sweet roll but a pretzel roll or butter roll will do.
- 2 packages of ham (9 oz. each) If you are getting freshly sliced deli ham, you are going to want 2 pieces per slider.
- 1/2 cup Mayonaise (my husband suggested a zesty mustard would be good as well.)
- 1/2 of a 8 ounce wheel of brie
- 3 Apples
I start by spraying a cookie sheet with non stick spray. It makes for easier clean up when the cheese gets gooey on the pan.
Slice the rolls in half and line them in the pan. Reserve the tops.
I have chickens so we have a plethora of fresh eggs. I used 2 of these eggs to whip up (literally I had to whip this!) a small recipe of mayonnaise. I added a bit of whole grain mustard to it to give a it a bit of kick. A zesty dijonnaise would be great if you are out of mustard. OR you could use a combination of both. It is YOUR sandwich. Go for it!
Spread a layer on the bottom of the buns.
On each bun add 2 pieces of ham, folded into quarters.
Next up is the apple slices.
I used an Apple peeler/corer/slicer to get this job done super fast. Peel, core and slice your three apples. I have had my APCS for 15 years. I got it as a wedding shower present and it has served me WELL over the years. For my pie crust recipe check out this link.
I find it helpful to put the brie in the freezer for about 15 minutes before slicing. With brie being a soft cheese the firmness of being extra chilled will help when slicing.
I made small wedges or slices of cheese but you are welcome to make them as thick or as thin as you would like.
Top the ham with the brie.
Top the brie with the slices of apples.
Place the top of the buns on the sandwiches and you are ready for the oven!
Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 25 minute or until the cheese is melted.
You now have a delicious slider that will feed a crowd!
