My family loves baked sliders for dinner. They’re super simple to make, there are so many variations, dinner is ready in just a half hour – and everyone eats them. It’s the perfect meal.

These Hawaiian sliders are our new favourite variation on the baked slider theme. Although I definitely make these Pesto Chicken Pull Apart Sliders and these Buffalo Chicken Sliders on a regular basis too.

This version has BBQ sauce, deli ham, pineapple rings, and shredded mozzarella cheese layered on some soft Hawaiian dinner rolls.

I made the buns for this meal, but have also made these on store-bought buns. Good options for store-bought buns are King’s Hawaiian rolls, brioche buns, or any soft, pull apart style dinner roll.

There are a couple options for the sauce on these sandwiches. I’ve used BBQ sauce here (just use your favourite kind), but I’ve also made these with pizza sauce. Both options are good, so use your preference.

I think that these would also be delicious with swiss cheese instead of mozzarella if you prefer.

These Hawaiian sliders are quick and easy to make, and they taste fantastic! You will love them!

What is the best way to assemble these Hawaiian sliders?

Slice the buns in half without pulling them apart. This way you can lay the bottoms in the pan, layer all the fillings on top, and then place all the tops back on at once.

If you want your sliders to be a bit saucier, you can increase the BBQ sauce. 1/2 cup will give a fairly thin layer of sauce, which we find is enough with the juicy pineapple, but feel free to increase it.

You can just lay the ham on top of the buns in layers, but I prefer to fold each piece so that each bun has it’s own piece of ham. This is simply so that the baked sliders can be pulled apart easily, instead of having to cut them so that the ham doesn’t slide out.

How to make Hawaiian Sliders:

  • It’s best to use pineapple rings that are at room temperature for this recipe. If the pineapple is cold, it will take longer for the sandwiches to heat through and the cheese to melt, and the buns might get a bit over cooked then.
  • You can use sliced or shredded cheese for this recipe. I usually use shredded mozzarella.
  • Hawaiian rolls are best here, but brioche, or another soft dinner roll will work well too.
  • Check the cheese in the middle to see if it’s melted when you pull these out of the oven. The cheese in the middle of the pan will take longer to completely melt.

These baked Hawaiian sliders make an easy weeknight dinner that everyone loves! Ham, cheese, and pineapple baked sandwiches are delicious!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • 12 Hawaiian dinner rolls
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • 12 slices deli ham
  • 12 pineapple rings
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.  
  2. Lightly spray a 9x13 inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  3. Slice the dinner rolls in half, if they are pull apart rolls you can leave them stuck together and slice them all at the same time.  Place the bottom halves into the prepared baking dish.
  4. Spread the BBQ sauce over the bottom halves of the dinner rolls.  
  5. Top with the ham slices and the pineapple rings.
  6. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over top of the pineapple.  
  7. Cover with the top halves of the dinner rolls.
  8. In a small bowl, whisk together the melted butter, garlic salt, onion powder, and parsley.  
  9. Brush this mixture over top of the sliders and cover the whole dish tightly with aluminum foil.  
  10. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the sliders are heated through.  Serve warm.


Sliced Swiss cheese is a good substitute for the mozzarella is you prefer. We’ve also made this with pizza sauce instead of BBQ sauce and that was also delicious. Any soft dinner roll will be fine here if you don’t want to make the Hawaiian ones, or can’t find them at the store.

I want to try to use peperoni instead of the ham. Do you think is not going to work out?

I think pepperoni instead of ham would be just fine in this recipe if that's what you prefer!
