FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) — Super Bowl 54 is almost here and Fort Wayne's NBC TODAY Meteorologist Nikki Pietrus is helping liven up your party with her traditional ham and cheese sliders.

Here’s the recipe:


  • 12 Hawaiian sweet slider rolls, split
  • 12 slices ham
  • 6 slices provolone cheese, halved
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • Sweet bread & butter pickles, for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350°F before assembling the sliders.
  • Prepare the sliders.
    • Cover a baking tray in aluminium foil before placing the bottom slider buns aligned on the tray. Top with a half slice of provolone and slice of ham before finishing with the top bun. Feel free to add more meat or cheese if you would like a more stuffed slider!
  • Make the glaze.
    • Melt the butter before mixing in the honey, Dijon, and Worcestershire sauce. Combine well using a fork.
  • Apply the glaze.
    • Coat the top buns with a generous amount of honey-butter glaze using a basting brush or simply drizzle glaze on top.
  • Bake and serve.
    • Once all sliders are assembled and coated in glaze, pop the tray in the oven. Bake for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and buns are golden-brown and caramelized. Cut and serve warm. Add pickle for garnish for a sweet and savory taste if desired.

Enjoy! Happy Super Bowl!
