Ham and Cheese Skillet Sliders

Sliders are something I make a lot, especially, Ham and Cheese Skillet Sliders. I love playing around with different flavors, but these ham and cheese sliders made in a cast-iron skillet are incredible.

They’re usually a hit at my house, I have to admit. We make them during birthday celebrations, Superbowl parties, and Olympics parties. It’s perfect for pool parties, too.


My family and friends, as you might assume, are ecstatic when they see I am about to make them. Anyway, they are extremely adaptable due to the numerous possibilities and variations available.

I’m confident you’ll enjoy them just as much as we do. Use deli turkey, chicken, or beef instead of ham if you don’t eat ham. You could also use grilled chicken or taco meat.

When my kids help me in the preparation of these sliders, it makes me very happy. Well, when they’re in the kitchen with me, it’s just so much fun. Every second is precious to me.

Do you spend time in the kitchen with your children or grandchildren? Take your nieces and nephews and teach them some of your cooking talents. They’ll never forget that!

Anyway, it’s becoming increasingly tough to write a blog post these days. I mean, I do write, almost every day, but to sit and do it here is becoming harder, and I keep putting it off for some time.

With school starting soon, both literally and figuratively, and football season now underway, I thought I’d share some of our favorite sliders.

These ham and cheese skillet sliders are absolutely amazing. Easy, tasty and delicious.


  • 8-10 Sliders, or dinner rolls

  • 10-12 oz Smoked Ham, about 2 slices per slider
  • 8-10 deli cheese, medium thickness; provolone, mozzarella or American)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter + for brushing the skillet
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • Pinch of chili powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Slice each slider bun in the middle then spread a thin layer of yellow mustard on the bottom of the slider; It is optional but it gives an extra kick.
  3. Add smoked ham, then top it with the cheese; any other type of deli meat would work as well. Close the sliders and place them in a well seasoned 10" cast iron skillet, coated with a thin layer of butter.
  4. Bake for 5 minutes in preheated, then brush each with melted unsalted butter mixed with garlic powder, dried herbs, and chili powder.
  5. Bake for additional 7-10 minutes, or until the cheese is completely melted.
  6. Carefully remove from the oven using oven mitts or a thick kitchen towel.
  7. Allow it to cool down for 5 minutes then cut in between the sliders and serve immediately.


If you are using larger buns, like hamburger buns and similar, I'd suggest using a large baking sheet, then you can add ham and cheese individually in for each bun.
