A Secret Breakfast Recipe:
Baked Ham and Swiss Cheese Sliders
A slider is a small sandwich, typically around 3 in (7.6 cm) across, served in a bun. The term primarily refers to small hamburgers, but can also cover any small sandwich served on a slider roll. The term, when used in reference to a small hamburger, refers to a small hamburger patty served on a small bun. According to the earliest citations, the name may have originated aboard U.S. Navy ships, due to the way greasy burgers slid across the galley grill while the ship pitched and rolled.White Castle trademarked the spelling variant “Slyder” and used it between 1985 and 2009.
Welcome to my FIRST secret recipe of 2015! It’s a simple recipe, but one that has me pondering how I’ve managed to live without it thus far in my life…….it’s essentially a sandwich, or should I say a “shoal” of sandwiches, made with the classic combination of ham and cheese, but there the similarities end, as they are baked (an idea I love and shall be copying more often) with a rather delectable and tangy sauce poured over them prior to baking that results in a tasty topping……
…….the recipe is one that I discovered whilst perusing my “secret partner’s blog” over at the very delicious “Lynsey Lou’s Making Your Days Delicious”. Lynsey has a passion for food and cooking. She loves to entertain, research new recipes, read cookbooks, research the latest and greatest thing in the culinary world as well as talk about food to anyone who is interested! (For those readers who aren’t familiar with The Secret Recipe Club, here’s how it works):
The Secret Recipe Club is a way to not only find but share new blogs. Each month, one member is assigned to another member from their group secretly (hence the name). That person selects a recipe (or more) to make, photograph, and then will draft up a blog post. Everyone in the group posts on the same Monday together and gets to see who had their blog and what recipe(s) they chose. It’s such a fun experience and it’s a great way to get new followers, too. There are always new blogs to discover and our club has plenty to offer.
Lynsey has a fabulous site with hundreds of tasty recipes to share; other recipes of hers that took my fancy were: Chicken, bacon, ranch taquitos, Pepper jack and oregano crackers, Sausage balls, Bacon pecan brittle, Cheese cornmeal bread, Breakfast skillet and Cornmeal-herb waffles with salsa and poached eggs. But, it was her tempting Hawaiian Roll Ham and Cheese Sliders AKA “Crack” sandwiches that I finally decided to make……as I don’t live in the USA and therefore don’t have access to some of the ingredients in this recipe, I have had to adapt Lynsey’s recipe slightly, but, they are still “crack sandwiches” and very much on my sandwich menu now and in the future.
If you are looking for an easy brunch or breakfast recipe, or even a simple supper and lunch dish, then this is one for you to try out…..these “sliders” are as tasty as they look and even easier to prepare, plus, they can be made the night before you intend to serve them, making them ideal for lazy, weekend brunches or large gatherings, especially at Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Year etc. Do take a look at Lynsey’s original recipe, however my adapted “metric” recipe follows for all of my UK and European readers. Have a great week and see you soon with more recipes and culinary news, as well as some travel reviews and a giveaway. Karen
These tasty sliders have been made JUST in time for British Breakfast Week too!
