Monte Cristo Sliders

On paper, the Monte Cristo is a sandwich that makes very little sense. Ham, turkey, swiss – okay that all seems normal… and then powdered sugar? And jam for dipping? What on earth! But, in reality, when you bite into one it is somehow absolutely delicious and it all makes sense. It’s like the embodiment of what sweet and salty combos should be. And here our Monte Cristo Sliders let you serve up that combo to a whole crew of people with no trouble at all. I love a party slider and I especially love these. You and your guests will too – it’s inevitable!

What makes party sliders so easy and convenient is that they rely on a package of Hawaiian rolls for the bread. You simply slice the rolls in half but leave the rolls attached, and place the bottom section in your baking dish as your base. Then, you layer up your ingredients and bake everything at once, so you have easy prep and pull-apart sandwiches for as many as twelve people. It’s almost too easy.


  • 12 Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • 1/2 lb sliced ham
  • 1/2 lb sliced turkey
  • 1/2 lb sliced Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • Powdered sugar, for topping
  • Raspberry jam, for serving
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease an 8×11-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Without separating the rolls, slice in half horizontally. Place bottom half of attached rolls in baking dish.
  2. Layer with half of the cheese, the ham, the turkey, then the remaining cheese. Place top half of rolls on top.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the butter, egg, and Dijon mustard until well combined. Brush over top of rolls.
  4. Cover loosely with foil, using toothpicks to lift foil if needed and bake 15 minutes.
  5. Remove foil and bake 10 minutes more.
  6. Let cool slightly, then score sliders with a sharp knife to separate for easy serving. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with raspberry jam for dipping. Enjoy!
