A few years ago, I went to a coworker’s house party and brought little baked sandwiches made out of Hawaiian rolls.
Everyone was amazed. People were begging me for the recipe. The simple little ham and cheese sliders were a massive hit.
I couldn’t believe it. The recipe was one of the most simple I had ever tried. People were in awe of these sandwiches?? Out of all the things I have made in my life, THIS is what they loved?
Using the same recipe, I went to work on a new type of party sandwich for Christmas Eve. Instead of Hawaiian rolls, I used Ritz crackers. Everything else was the same: sweet dijon sauce, ham and swiss interior, crispy poppy seed topping…
Again, these were a huge hit. I found myself sneaking cracker bites from the fridge whenever the night was over. Even soft and soggy after refrigeration, I loved them.
If you really want to impress people at your next party—maybe New Year’s Eve?–you should try out these crackers.
Baked Cracker Sandwiches
A tasty bite of turkey, ham, and Swiss cheese baked on crackers with a sweet and savory sauce.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Place one sleeve of crackers on baking sheet, flat side up. It’s okay if the crackers touch, but don’t let them overlap each other.
- Place a slice of turkey or ham on each cracker, folding up so it barely hangs over cracker.
- Cut cheese into 1″ squares (I could make 9 squares out of each slice of cheese, cutting 3×3). Place one square of cheese on top of deli meat.
- Add a cracker on top of each piece of cheese, flat side down.
- In a bowl, stir together melted butter with Worcestershire, onion powder, Dijon mustard, and brown sugar. Brush on top of each cracker. Add a sprinle of poppy seeds to each cracker too.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
