Directions

Roll ten 2-inch sized balls with the dough and place them all in the prepared baking pan with a little bit of space between them so they're not touching.

In a small bowl, mix up the butter, mustard, aminos, and poppy seeds, and dried minced onion. Set aside.

picking up keto ham and cheese slider

Looking for a crowd-pleasing keto appetizer?

You’ve gotta make these delicious keto ham and cheese sliders ASAP—they’re the perfect party appetizer for your next gathering! They are inspired by this super popular [carb-filled] version on Hip2save.com, but today I am sharing a way you can make them keto-friendly.

We will be making a batch of these easy keto sweet dinner rolls first, then adding deli ham and swiss cheese to make melted sliders. My favorite part is the buttery poppy seed mustard topping that gets baked on top and caramelizes nicely for lots of added flavor.

Hip Recipe Tips: 

    • I am using deli ham and Swiss cheese, but I also love provolone cheese as an alternative cheese option. You can pick any deli meat and cheese combination you enjoy, but when using ham be sure to pick one that doesn’t have honey or added sugar.
    • I thought it was easiest to use a basting silicone brush to brush on the buttery poppy seed topping, but you could always improvise with a spoon and spread it around on top.

    Is there something that can be used in place of liquid amminos?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes, you can use soy sauce, just know that it does contain a small amount of wheat if you have a gluten allergy.

  2. mrsV

    These were so good! I skipped the liquid aminos and used regular french’s mustard. Halfway through baking the dough I realized I didn’t have any poppyseeds so I substituted the 2 tsp poppyseeds and 2 tsp minced onion for 3-4 tsp of “everything but the bagel” seasoning. Turned out perfectly:)

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I love that seasoning! Sounds like a great substitution, mrs V!

  3. Jaime

    Can I substitute Swerve for the monk fruit sweetener?

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Jamie! You can use any sweetener that you prefer.

  4. Janet

    Do the rolls freeze well?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Janet! We haven’t done that, however you could give it a try and freeze the dough or the rolls after baking. Let us know how it works out if you give it a try. They are quick and easy to mix up – https://hip2keto.com/recipes/keto-sweet-dinner-rolls/

      Hope that helps!

    Made these for supper tonight along with salad & peanut butter fat bombs. Neighbors came for dinner & it was a hit! It’s a keeper recipe my husband declared too…

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I’m so glad! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Debbie

    can you use all coconut flour? cannot use almond flour

  7. Grayson

    I can’t wait to try this tonight! Can I use coconut aminos instead? If not what do you recommend replacing aminos with? Would it be the same serving? Thank you!

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Grayson! Coconut aminos are slightly higher in carbs. However it would attribute such a trivial amount in this recipe that I think it would be perfectly fine❤ I hope this helps & enjoy your dinner!

  8. Lynne

    Mine did not rise. What did I do wrong?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, be sure to use 1 teaspoon baking powder. You could also double check that it is not close to it’s expiration. Find all of the details and tips on baking those rolls over here –> https://hip2keto.com/recipes/keto-sweet-dinner-rolls/

      Hope this is helpful!
