Easy baked Italian sliders with ham, salami, pepperoni, roasted red peppers, and provolone. These sliders are so quick, easy, and make the perfect appetizer! Even though I make a lot of food and love to cook, not everything I make actually turns out…well…edible. Let’s just say, I am no stranger to recipe development failures. ? On those days, we like to go out and grab soups/sandwiches or a pizza while the toddler incessantly reminds me to never make “that” again. As we pile into the car, the toddler always puts in his request — his favorite place to eat is Zupas. (Or as he calls it “Uppas”.) A few reasons why he loves Zupas so much: 1. He promptly eats both mine and his dad’s chocolate-covered strawberries that come with our meals, 2. He eats their soda crackers like they’re going out of style, and 3. He is completely obsessed with the Italian Club Sandwich. He’s not a fan of their kid meals (seriously how does my 3-year-old eat everything EXCEPT mac & cheese?!), so I always get the Italian sandwich with a various soup or salad. Half of that sandwich is always, very gratefully, his. I’m convinced he could eat that sandwich every single day and never get sick of it! So, of course, I’ve had to re-create an Italian club just for him. Although, these really aren’t a re-creation of the Zupas Italian Club sandwiches being as they are baked and in slider/appetizer form, but they’ve got all the essentials — delicious meat, great seasoning, perfect bread, melty cheese, and a DIPPING SAUCE. These sliders are packed with meat, so feel free to scale back on how much you add. They are so easy to customize — change out the cheese, leave off the peppers, increase/decrease seasonings, etc. They also don’t store too bad. Of course, they are the very best hot out of the oven, but if you need to store them; they do pretty good. Wrap them tight in foil and store in the fridge and when ready to enjoy; heat them up in the microwave! Just make sure to add these to your Super Bowl menu. ??
