Best Keto Ham and Cheese Sliders – Easy Party Appetizer!

Keto Ham and Cheese Sliders

yield: 10 SERVINGS

prep time: 10 MINUTES

cook time: 37 MINUTES

total time: 47 MINUTES

Ingredients

For the sweet rolls:

For the sliders:

  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon liquid aminos or Tamari
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 10 thin slices of ham deli ham (about 4 oz.)
  • 5 slices of Swiss cheese

Directions

1

To make the rolls:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9-inch round pan to avoid any sticking and set aside.

2

In a medium-size bowl, add almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, grated parmesan cheese, and monk fruit (or preferred keto sweetener) and mix well. Set aside.

3

In a large microwavable bowl, add mozzarella and cream cheese. Microwave in 30-second intervals until cheese is completely melted.

4

Once the cheese is melted, add in the almond flour/coconut flour mixture, and mix well. Then add in 2 eggs and 1 tablespoon of melted butter, and mix well until all is kneaded together. I like to use my hands during this process so that it's all kneaded together well.

5

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.

6

Brush the top of the rolls with an egg wash (1 egg mixed with some water) and place in the oven to bake for 18-22 minutes, until slightly browned. Make sure to check halfway as the cooking time depends on your oven and how big your rolls are. Remove from the oven and set aside.

7

To make the mustard-poppy seed glaze:

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

8

To assemble the sliders:

Slice the tops and bottoms of all the rolls, and set the tops aside. Put the bottoms of the rolls in the 9-inch baking dish, and place a slice of ham folded on each roll. Cut each slice of cheese in half and fold it in half on top of the ham on each roll. Place all the tops of the rolls back on.

9

Use a basting brush to brush on the mustard-poppy seed mixture all over the top and sides of each roll. Place them back into the oven for 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese is nice and melted. Enjoy warm.

Keto ham and cheese sliders topped with a buttery mustard glaze make for a winning keto appetizer.

You’ve gotta make these delicious keto ham and cheese sliders ASAP—they’re the perfect party appetizer and are guaranteed to earn you the royal treatment from family and friends! They are inspired by this super popular (but carb-filled) version on Hip2save.com, but don’t worry – I’m 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 glaze that gets baked on top and caramelizes nicely for lots of added flavor.

Hip tips for making outstanding keto ham and cheese sliders: 

  • I am using deli ham and Swiss cheese, but I also love provolone cheese as an alternative 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.

My Hip Sidekick Chelsey also made these keto ham and cheese sliders, and here’s what she had to say about them:

“These Keto Ham & Cheese sliders are delicious! They are super easy to make, and they allow for a ton of customization if you want to use different cheeses or even different meats. The sweet rolls are nice and fluffy and are the perfect size. My whole family enjoyed eating these, and we’ll definitely be making them again!”

    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!

  5. djnelson1956

    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!

  9. Teresa

    Can you omit the coconut flour

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      If you omit the coconut flour, you’ll need to add an extra 1/4 almond flour and reduce the eggs to only one.

  10. Lori

    If I didn’t want my rolls to be sweet, could I just leave out the sweetener, or would it change it too much?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ya I feel like you could lessen or omit!
