Happy New Year & Ham Sliders
Happy New Year! How is 2018 treating you so far? We kicked it off (London style) with 14 other families and about 25 kids under 5. It was our 3rd Annual New Year’s in London Party. It always starts about 4:00 and we toast New Year’s with our friends in London at 7:00 our time. Yall I feel like it is one of my best ideas. It is always so much fun, a little crazy, and we are in our PJs by 8:30. That is my kind of party! I’ll do a post about it one day.
I realize I haven’t posted in about 3 months and I’m sorry. I feel like I am constantly catching up on this little blog now that I am wrangling three kids. I have managed to get about an hour when everyone is napping/resting but it seems to get filled up with cleaning, dinner prepping, bible study and episodes of the Crown (please tell me you are watching too!). I do take lot of pictures and always have good intentions to share with you. I can promise I’ll be back to share about Poppy this week. Here is our Christmas card picture. The kids are growing so fast!
Poppy was SIX months old on Sunday. How can it be? She is such a JOY and we are soaking up all of our days with her and her brother and sister!
So for our New Year’s party we knew we had lots of mouths to feed both big and small. We settled on making Ham and Cheese sliders. They are a regular menu item around here and are always delicious. Plus they are easy to make and can feed a crowd. I first found the recipe in a Better Homes & Gardens recipe edition at my mother in laws and have only tweaked it slightly to make it our own.
You will need King’s Hawaiian Rolls (everything tastes good on those!), sliced ham, white american cheese and Laughing Cow’s garlic and herb soft cheese spread. Spray a baking dish or pan with non-stick spray of some kind and then layer in this order…bottom of the Hawaiian rolls, sliced ham, white american cheese. Then spread the garlic and herb spread on the top of the rolls before placing them on the slider.
Then poured over the top is melted butter, Dijon mustard, garlic & parsley. You can add more or less of these ingredients depending on your liking of each. For 12 sliders I use 4 tbsp of butter melted, 1tsp of chopped parsley, 1 tbsp minced garlic and 1 tbsp of Dijon mustard. Mix it together and pour over the top.
Finally, cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Then uncover and bake for another 5 minutes. These are incredible, however if you are 4 or under like the little ones in our house, you might prefer just melted butter on top of yours!
