Little Sandwich Supper

Well folks, school is in full swing. Only 6 days in and I am E.X.H.A.U.S.T.E.D I'm not kidding! I took a nap this past Sunday! I haven't taken a nap in I don't know how long. But there I was at 4 in the afternoon laying on our bed, fast asleep.

I'm sure my sleep schedule is totally whacked out and when it's back on track I won't feel like I am asleep on my feet 24/7, but until that happens, I am finding ways to ease my life any way I can.

Supper is always one way I look to shave a little time off my oh so busy day. If there is a way I can feed my family, but spend a little less energy doing so, sign me up!

On nights when I need simple, yet scrumptious, quick yet satisfying, many times I turned to my friend the sandwich. Rather it be soup and sammies, salad and sammies, fruit and sammies....I have so many different ways I serve them up, but each gives us a supper that is easy on me, and filling for my family.

These little tasty gems will certainly become part of our regular sandwich rotation, and I'm guessing if you try them, yours too. Think hot ham and cheese taken to the next level. If you've never had a Cuban Sandwich, or "Cubano", it's filled with ham, roasted pork, pickles, Swiss cheese, mustard and then pressed until it's thin and crispy. Well, minus the roast pork, these have all of that! And the sauce on the top? Well, I could drink that stuff with a straw!

If you're looking to switch up your sandwich routine because your schedule is as busy as mine, and you too find yourself struggling to keep going at the end of the day, these are exactly what you're looking for.

Cuban Sliders
12 Hawaiian Slider Buns or Dinner Rolls
24 thin slices ham (I like the small round ones)
Sliced Swiss Cheese, cut into fourths
Dill Pickle Chips
1 stick butter, melted
2 TBS Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. onion powder

Preheat oven to 350. Lay bottoms of buns in 9 x 13 baking dish. Add two slices of ham, two fourths of cheese and two pickles to each. Put tops on. In a large bowl, combine butter, mustard and onion powder. Whisk well. Baste tops of sandwiches liberally with sauce. Cover with foil. Bake for 10 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 additional minutes until golden brown on top.
