Hot Ham and Cheese Sliders with Poppy Seed Dressing

Do y’all have left over ham from New Year’s? Are you tired of the same ol’ rewarming over and over again?

Here in the South, ham is a traditional New Year’s dish. But of course I’m still not used to cooking for just 2 people and ended up with way more ham than what I needed. (Note to self, work on portioning for 2 people instead of 5) Well we reheated the ham several times, I made soup, made ham and eggs, ham salad… you get the picture.  I was looking for something new when I came across a blog post on One Good Thing by Jillee . She made these wonderful sliders but of course I changed them up a bit LOL.

I really hope y’all will give these a try and let us know what you think.

Make it a great day!
