Cheesy Ham and Egg Breakfast Sliders

1 tablespoon butter for frying
6 large eggs
Salt and pepper to taste
12 pack Hawaiian dinner rolls
½ cup melted butter
6-8 slices of your favorite cheese (I used mild cheddar)
10 slices honey deli ham, sliced thin
1/4 teaspoon pepper for sprinkling on top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs with salt, pepper until well blended.
Melt butter and swirl around to coat bottom of the pan.   


When butter is bubbling, pour egg mixture into non-stick skillet and stir frequently over medium heat with a spatula until cooked through. Do not overcook. You want them slightly under-cooked and moist. Remove from heat.


Using a serrated knife, cut the rolls in half horizontally.  Do not separate rolls.  Set the top sheet of the rolls aside. 


Place the rolls still together, cut side up in a 9 x 11 baking dish, which will be the exact size of the rolls. You can you can also use a 9 x 13 dish.  Brush the rolls lightly with a little melted butter.

Spoon scrambled eggs evenly over the rolls.  Make sure you cover completely.  Next, lay ham slices on top of the eggs.  I usually do half with ham and half without for those who do not like meat. You can also use bacon or sausage.

Cover the ham with sliced cheese.  You can also use shredded cheese if you prefer. Cover with top buns and brush tops with melted butter. 

I like to use a little pastry brush to make sure I get the tops evenly and a little on the sides. Then sprinkle pepper on each one and bake in pre-heated oven for 15 minutes, or tops are golden and cheese is completely melted.

Remove from oven, and slice along each roll to separate. Serve and enjoy!


NOTE:  You can prep these a day ahead time then cover with foil and refrigerate. When ready to make, bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until rolls are golden and cheese in completely melted.

Macaroni Salad with Peas and Ham


It’s almost summer! It's the season for picnics, outdoor family gatherings and cookouts. Lots and lots of cookouts!  And it's always a tough decision trying to decide what to take to a cookout, right?  Well, who doesn't love pasta salad?  Let's face it, no barbecue or picnic is complete without a nice chilled macaroni salad. When I think about some of the food that represents summer, this recipe comes to mind.  This is my Mom's Old Fashioned Macaroni Salad with peas and ham.  The memory of this summer classic  makes me smile.

Macaroni Salad with Peas and Ham

1 1/2 cups mayonnaise (I used only Hellmann's or Dukes)

1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons sugar (more or less to taste)
2 cups pre-cooked elbow macaroni, drained well
1 cup ham, cut into small cubes
3/4 cup frozen baby peas
salt and pepper as desired

In a small bowl mix together the mayo, sour cream, Dijon mustard, and sugar. Add salt and pepper to taste. Empty frozen peas into a colander and pour hot water over them to thaw.  Set aside.

In a larger bowl, combine cooked macaroni, ham and thawed peas. Add dressing a little at a time until you have the consistency you like. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.  

Optional add-ins:

Your favorite cheese, cut in cubes

sliced red onion
fresh dill
boiled eggs, chopped
sweet pickle relish
