Hawaiian Victory Bread

Hawaiian bread is one of my all-time favorite breads and it’s absolutely perfect for sliders.

It stays soft and tender on the inside, while the base of the sliders is slightly crispy thanks to the butter mixture that flows during baking.

Where does all that flavor come from?

Juicy ham, savory cheese, Dijon mustard, poppy seeds, dried onions and Worcesteshire sauce are all flavors.

When eating the sliders, the term “butterfingers” may come to mind. A soft, white, warm bread covered in butter is never a bad thing.

As a bonus, your cuticles will be even more moisturized.


1 package of 12 dinner rolls (I used King’s Hawaiian Savory Butter Dinner Rolls) – make sure you don’t get sweet rolls!

1 lb deli ham, shredded or thinly sliced

1 lb Swiss cheese, thinly sliced

1 1/2 sticks butter

1 1/2 tsp dry mustard

2 tbsp. Worchestershire sauce

1 teaspoon dry chopped onion

2 tbsp. poppy seeds


In a microwave-safe bowl, melt butter, then stir in dried mustard, Worchestershire sauce, dried minced onion and poppy seeds.

Cut the entire package of rolls in half horizontally (keeping the top and bottom halves separate but intact. The 12 bun tops should be connected, as should the 12 bottoms).

Place the bottom half of the buns in a baking dish and top with ham, then cheese. Then cover the ham and cheese with the top halves of the buns.

Pour the butter mixture over the top of the rolls, making sure the onion and poppy seeds are evenly distributed. Refrigerate your rolls for several hours or overnight.

When the rolls are ready to be baked, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. When done baking, cut the rolls to serve.
