I know, I know. You don’t have to tell me Hawaiian Ham Sliders have been shared by every single food blogger in the universe. They are tried-and-true and here is my version.
It almost seems as if Pinterest got its start with Hawaiian Ham Sliders, but maybe it was the other way around and these melt-in-your-mouth crowd-pleasers became famous due to Pinterest.
Whatever is the true story, it truly doesn’t matter. I love them, I made them tonight and I wanted Hawaiian Ham Sliders to have its fair share of fame on my blog.
One thing I love about Hawaiian Ham Sliders is you can treat them almost any way you want and they will still love you and make you happy. Make them your own by adding hot-pepper jelly, a little mayo, other cheeses, olives, green pepper, other meats, peppers (sweet or hot), bourbon sauce, caramelized onions – the list is limited only by your imagination.
Oh yes! Be sure to add a toasty pineapple chunk for that perfect, finishing touch.
