  1. Carrots - (If prepping right before cooking, get oven heating before continuing with prep.) Slice carrots into matchsticks. (Note: You want the carrots fairly thin so they will finish roasting at the same time as the sugar snap peas.) (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Make dressing - Whisk together mayonnaise and mustard. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Sugar snap peas - Trim sugar snap peas. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  4. Slider buns / rolls - If not pre-sliced, slice.


  1. Heat oven to 400F / 204C. Set out a sheet pan and a square baking dish (if making more than 4 servings, use a large rectangular dish).
  2. Whisk together oil, garlic powder, salt, and sesame seeds. Toss with carrots and sugar snap peas. Spread out on the sheet pan.
  3. Transfer to the oven and roast, shaking the pan halfway through cooking, until carrots are tender, 10 to 14 minutes.
  4. While vegetables roast, spread the bottom halves of slider buns out in the baking dish. Spread with mayo / mustard dressing. Top each slider with ham, cheese (tear into small pieces to fit on sliders), and then top halves of buns.
  5. Melt butter in the microwave. Stir in poppy seeds (if using) and pour over buns. Cover tightly with foil.
  6. Bake sliders, covered, for 8 minutes.
  7. Remove foil cover and bake until golden brown on top, ~1 minute more.
  8. Serve sliders with vegetables on the side. Enjoy!

Very quick and easy to make. Not the healthiest recipe but fine to have one in a while. Everyone found it very tasty. I cooked for the amount of time given and cheese was nicely melted, however I used grated cheddar cheese not Swiss.

I combined this with a similar recipe from my mom. I put light mayo on the bottoms of the sliders, added ham and swiss and melted/caramelized the cheese under the broiler. The tops got brushed on top with 3 tbsp of butter mixed with 1.5 teaspoons of worchester, 1.5 teaspoons of mustard, and a pinch of garlic powder. The remaining butter mixture got brushed onto the melted cheese layer. I then loosely covered and baked in oven for about 8 minutes at 300 degrees, uncovered, and baked for another minute. Delicious!

These were so quick and easy. Would be really simple to scale up for a crowd, and I bet kids would love it. Didn't even really need a veggie side with three sliders per serving, as that was pretty filling. I think I would go for two sliders and a bigger veggie side next time.

This was both light in terms of portion size and heavy with the oil/butter/mayonnaise. Still, I'll probably make these again from time to time when I want something quick and different from my usual dinners. I was surprised at how well the leftover sliders reheated in the oven. Agree with other reviewers that they needed a longer baking time.
