The Best Ever Ham & Cheese Sammies

Good Morning from the cold…but oh-so-beautiful, Minnesota!  As we cozy in for a day on the lake with family, I wanted to be sure to share a “Super Bowl” style appetizer with all of you.  🙂

Another football season has come and nearly gone.  Tomorrow, football fans around the country will be cheering on their chosen team as they fight for the title, “Super Bowl Champions”.   Oh how I wish it were the Packers getting down to business….fighting for that coveted Lombardi trophy!   While me and my fellow Cheeseheads won’t need to sport our Green and Gold,  you can bet we will be parked in front of the tube, (hopefully with a handful of friends), indulging in one last football Sunday showdown…with a cold beer and tailgate-approved food in hand. 

For those of you throwing a party….or crashing a party, I have the PERFECT dish for you to share.  I’ve mentioned these delicious sliders once before (Halloween Party 2012), but today I am handing over the recipe.  While I have since seen this recipe (or a similar concoction) on Pinterest, the original credit goes to my friend “Tews”.  It was just 2 years ago that Jenny whipped these up for her Christmas Eve gathering.  As I was walking out the door, she was pulling them out of the oven.  One whif and I sat right back down to enjoy one…or two! 

In all seriousness, if you are looking for a sure hit…a “dish of the night” appetizer, I suggest you get out to the grocery store this morning and start preparing for these Ham and Cheese Sammies (they will need to marinate overnight).  You will thank me later.  Promise.
