Don’t you love it when you come across a recipe that requires little work and effort but still come out amazing?
I asked on Twitter the other day, “What are you looking forward to the most about the Super Bowl, Bruno Mars, the game, or the food”? Do you want to know what most people said? You guessed it, FOOD. Bruno Mars came in a close second m(freaking love that guy). I am always looking forward to food when it comes to sports games. Heck, that is the only reason I tailgate every year. Aside from the food, I love seeing people come together in an informal setting, chow down on some informal foods, and saying informal things. It’s the best vibe and atmosphere ever. I think I might look forward to Super Bowl Sunday more than Thanksgiving. Almost.
You want to know something interesting. Well, it might not be that interesting after I tell you. I am not a huge football fan. For me to love the Super Bowl and tailgating as much as I do, I really can care less about the sport. It’s too technical in my opinion. Something doesn’t count if the elbow doesn’t hit the turf, or the way someone tackles another person can be a technical foul, and there are too many flags. It’s all just a bit too much for me. You understand what I mean? That is why I like basketball. It’s easy to get into and it isn’t as technical. I don’t know why they don’t have tailgating or anything equivalent for basketball. Hmmm, maybe I will start a trend. Yes, I will start a new trend that includes these Hawaiian Sliders and some chicken wings.
I hope it isn’t politically incorrect for me to name these sliders “Hawaiian”. I figure that it would be appropriate considering that if you were to order a Hawaiian pizza it would consist of pineapple and ham, which is one lovely combination by the way. These sliders are easy and fast to make, which is how I like my food. The sweetness of the rolls combined with the saltiness of the ham and the cheese works perfectly together. If you really want to impress your crowd, add some sliced bacon as well. These sliders stand good alone but if you really are wanting to add something on them maybe honey dijon mustard will work good. Have a good Super Bowl Sunday!
- 1 lb. sliced ham
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 6 slices swiss cheese
- 24 oz. can pineapple rings
- 6 Brioche Buns or Hawaiian Rolls
- sliced bacon (optional)
- Preheat oven to 250 Degrees
- In a medium sized saute pan melted the butter on medium heat. Once the butter is melted. Place the slices of ham in the pan and allow to cook for about 5 minutes. While the ham is cooking, open the buns in half and place the bottom of the buns on a baking sheet.
- Place two slices of ham on each bottom of the bun, add bacon (if you would like) and add a slices of cheese on top. Place in the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese has completely melted. Once the cheese has melted, add a single pineapple ring on top of the cheese and top off with the top of the bun. Stick a toothpick through to secure the slider and serve!
