Monte Cristo Siders

Monte Cristo Sliders are an easier take on the famous Monte Cristo Sandwich! Sweet Hawaiian rolls are layered with an irresistible Dijon-butter sauce and piled high with Swiss cheese, honey ham, and smoked turkey. These sliders are baked in an egg custard, topped with powdered sugar, and served with berry jam -- swoon!

  • 1 pkg (12 count) Hawaiian Sweet Dinner Rolls
  • 8 oz. deli ham (honey ham or Black Forest ham)
  • 8-9 oz. deli smoked turkey thinly sliced
  • 8 oz. baby Swiss cheese thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard (Note 1)
  • 1 large egg
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, separated
  • Powdered sugar for topping
  • Raspberry, strawberry, or blackberry jam for serving


  • PREP: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and generously spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • SEPARATE ROLLS: Unwrap rolls and use a sharp serrated/bread knife to slice the entire package of rolls in half while keeping individual rolls intact. This will form two slabs of rolls Place the bottom half of the rolls in the prepared pan. 
  • MUSTARD SAUCE: In a small bowl, combine 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard and 3 tbsp of melted and cooled butter. Briskly mix until smooth and then spread half of the mustard mixture over the bottom half of the rolls in the baking pan. On the cut side of the top half of the rolls, spread the rest of the butter mixture evenly on top.
  • ASSEMBLE: Evenly top the mustard-covered rolls with 1/2 of the Swiss cheese slices. Add ham on top, then turkey. Finish with the remaining cheese slices. Gently press down into an even layer. Finally, add the top slab of the rolls on top.
  • TOPPING SAUCE: In another small bowl, add the remaining 3 tablespoons of melted butter and 1 large egg. Briskly whisk until smooth. Use a pastry brush to brush the mixture over the top and sides of the rolls. (It's ok if there is a little left over. Don't feel like you have to use it all -- we usually have about 2 tbsp left.)
  • BAKE: Cover pan loosely with foil. (Make sure the foil doesn't touch the top of the rolls or it will stick! Use toothpicks if needed to lift the foil) and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake another 5-10 minutes, or until rolls are nicely golden and cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and let stand for 5 minutes before slicing the rolls apart with a sharp knife.
  • ENJOY: Sprinkle powdered sugar over the top, if desired, and serve hot with jam on the side.



Note 1: Dijon mustard: Make sure you use Dijon, not yellow mustard. The better the quality of Dijon, the better the flavor. Some brands are more pungent than others. We love Grey Poupon® best.
