Hey Friends, whether you’re watching all the games at home or out with friends, Game Day is all about the food. 

Cuban Sliders Game Day Board

We love the Cuban slider with combo of ham, cheese, and pickles, baked on warm, toasty rolls.

2 ways to make the sliders

You can serve them like I did for this Game Day Cuban Sliders Party (check out all the details + easy-to-buy trays!)

You can change up the Cuban Sliders by making the traditional recipe, or adding a little pizzaz to half of them.

  • 1/2 platter – regular Cuban Sliders
  • 1/2 platter – Cuban Sliders with salami and pepperoncini

Besides the game, and rooting for your favorite team, there is one other important feature: DELICIOUS GAME DAY FOOD.

How to serve cuban sliders

These sliders are savory and delicious to nosh on, with a side of fruit and your favorite chips! We love hummus and veggies, too!

What’s in a Cuban Slider?

It’s basic. Ham, Swiss cheese, and sliced dill pickles.

It’s optional to make 1 pan the classic way, and 1 pan with pepperoncini (chopped or sliced) and salami. This is our favorite Cuban Sandwich!

This recipe makes 2 9×13 pans, so 24 sliders, which feeds about 12 guests!

Easy for the novice cook to prepare and share with your friends, I say SLIDERS are a must for Game Day!

Print Recipe Pin Recipe Save Recipe


  • 24 dinner or slider rolls
  • 12 slices Black Forest ham, thick cut (cut in half)
  • 12 slices Swiss cheese, cut in half
  • 24 dill pickle slices
  • Optional: 1/3 cup pepperoncini, drained and chopped + 12 large salami slices

Butter Dijon Glaze for 24 Rolls

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/4 c grated white onion
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tbsp honey, optional
  • Pinch of salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line two square baking dishes (or similar sized rectangular pans) with foil, making sure it overlaps the edges. With a serrated knife, cut the tops of the rolls apart from the bottoms and place 12 roll bottoms in each pan.
  • In one pan, layer 1 slice of ham, 1 slice of salami, 1/2 slice of Swiss cheese, and evenly divide the 1/3 cup of peppers onto all 24 roll bottoms. Finish layering the sliders with the remaining tops—a tip is to gently pull apart the rolls to allow the butter to seep in. Additionally, I tear the ham slices and cheese to fit onto one roll to make cutting and serving easier.
  • In the second pan, layer 1 slice of ham, 1/2 slice of Swiss cheese, and 2 dill pickle slices onto all 12 roll bottoms. Finish layering the sliders with the remaining tops—gently tear apart rolls if desired.
  • In a medium bowl, melt the butter, then whisk together with Dijon mustard, honey, and salt. Spoon the butter mixture over the tops of all 24 rolls, then cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. When 20 minutes has passed, remove the top layer of foil and return to the oven for 10 more minutes.
  • Serve warm and enjoy!
