Ham & Cheese Sliders (and Turkey & Cheese too)

These ham & cheese sliders have been all over the blogosphere, as well as Pinterest the last few years.  I even had a coworker tell me years ago that her catering parents have been making them since she was a little kid and they're highly addictive.  I'm not going to lie - I've never really had a desire to make them.  Why, you ask?  Well, they have mayo and mustard usually - two of my least favorite things.  That being said, when looking for easy and delicious things to make for Rob's party a few weeks ago I knew these would be perfect for everyone else to eat.  I did adapt the recipe a bit, so that I could at least try one!

I was making about 72 sandwiches, which was time consuming, buy very easy.  Based on all the raves I'm still getting on these sandwiches, it's safe to say they were a huge hit and I won't hesitate to make them again if the occasion calls for it.  Even I enjoyed them, with the modifications I made!  I highly suggest if you like mayo and mustard though to make the original version because, well, let's face it... I'm weird for not liking those things that most people love!

Also, they're so easy to modify overall flavor profiles.  I made half ham & cheese, and the other half turkey & cheese.


Ham & Cheese (Turkey & Cheese, or any Meat & Cheese) Sliders
Ingredients:
24 White Dinner Rolls, such as Hawaiian Rolls
24 Slices Honey Ham, Honey Turkey, Roasted Chicken, etc.  
24 Small slices Swiss Cheese, or Cheese of your Choice (I used 1/2 a slice per sandwich, based on the slice size)
8 oz. soft cream cheese spread of choice (plain, chive & onion or garden veggie)
1 stick butter, melted
1 tablespoon minced onion
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Slice rolls in half, and spread on a thin layer of cream cheese.  Place a slice of meat and slice of cheese inside each roll.  Close rolls and place into a large baking sheet very close together.  

In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, onion, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and Parmesan cheese.  Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches.  Let sit for 10 minutes, or in fridge overnight, covered), to allow butter to set slightly.  Cover with foil and bake for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Uncover and cook for 2 more minutes.  Serve warm.

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…

Foodbuzz 24x24: A Very Hungry Caterpillar First Birthday Party

It's hard to believe that my baby boy is technically no longer a baby anymore!  It seems like just yesterday I was a nervous wreck on our way to the hospital, and now all of a sudden I'm planning a birthday party!

Even before Ty was born though, I knew I wanted to do a Very Hungry Caterpillar party.  I'm not exactly sure what made me think of it, but one day I was sitting in his room and imagining reading him the first book I bought for him.  Yep - The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

There is something about the classic children's book that lends itself very well to entertaining.  Generally speaking, the focal point of any event (aside from the reason for celebration), is the food.    For those not familiar with the book - The Hungry Caterpillar is all about food!  He eats is way through many different foods, until he's big and strong and becomes a beautiful butterfly.  A perfect metaphor for a young baby.  It's amazing how much such a little guy can eat - but at th…

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too!
