I have to say, my motivation is a little bit less. At the end of a long day at work, I just want to come home, put my hair in a ponytail, plop in front of the TV and eat Cosmic Brownies (yes, the Little Debbie ones) until I'm sick.
It's nights like this when an easy recipe is a must. As a full-time working woman, my mom was queen of easy recipes, and this is one we kids especially enjoyed. I recently found a jazzed up version over at The Girl Who Ate Everything, and I knew I had to give it a try! I wasn't the slightest bit disappointed. Nathan commented that they tasted like something from the fast food chain Krystal. That was a compliment coming from him--Krystal ranks high on the list of favorites for Mr. Atwood.
Ham & Cheese Sliders -- The Girl Who Ate Everything
**I made these just for me and the hubs, so I halved the recipe and got 12 sliders. The recipe below will make 24.
- 24 good dinner rolls
- 24 slices good ham (we used some fresh thick-cut stuff from the Deli at our local grocer)
- 24 small slices good swiss cheese
- 1/3 cup Mayo
- 1/3 cup Miracle Whip
(I took Christy's suggestion and halved the sauce recipe because she said it made a lot. I halved it below, but if you want to make it all, just simply double what I put)
- 1/2 TBSP Poppy seeds
- 1 TBSP yellow mustard
- 1/2 stick of butter, melted
- 1/2 TBSP minced onion (or dried onion flakes)
- 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce (for some reason, I accidentally completely left this out, and they still tasted yummy. Next time I'll definitely add this in to see if it tastes even better.)
- Slice dinner rolls in half
- Mix together in a small bowl Miracle Whip and Mayo
- Spread mayo mixture on both sides of rolls
- Place 1 piece of ham and 1 piece of small swiss cheese on each roll
- Close dinner rolls and place on cookie or baking sheet. Place very close together.
- Mix sauce ingredients together and let sit 10 minutes to thicken.
- Pour sauce over rolls.
- Cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 12 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 2-3 minutes.
