Hawaiian Ham Sliders Ingredients

This recipe’s components are really basic. A fresh pineapple, one red onion, a pre-smoked spiral sliced ham, pork seasoning, BBQ sauce, and some sweet Hawaiian buns are all you need.

You’ve most likely prepared a pre-sliced ham for Christmas or Easter. They’re fantastic since they’ve already been smoked, but did you know they also come in little sizes? You may choose one that weighs only 2-3 pounds, which is ideal for preparing a weekday meal or a weekend lunch.

I prefer using fresh pineapple for the pineapple since you can slice it thinly to match the thickness of the ham pieces. You may substitute canned pineapple pieces, but they will be thicker.

While the prepared ingredients may be piled on any bread (or eaten stacked without the extra carbohydrates), I really prefer putting them on Hawaiian sweet rolls.


Let’s get our grill on

I’m cooking these Hawaiian ham sliders on my Aspire by Hestan gas grill with the rotisserie set up. The ham juices will flow over the pineapples and onions, enhancing their taste.

Season everything with my Spiceology Pork Rub before threading the pork directly onto the rotisserie spit and turning the burner to medium.

If you don’t have a rotisserie, you may cook the ham directly on top of the pineapples and onions in the pan over indirect heat.

Cook for around 45 minutes on the grill. The ham will warm through and absorb all of the delicious spices during this time, while the pineapples and onions begin to caramelize.

After 45 minutes, spray a half cup of your favorite honey barbecue sauce directly in the pan and brush another 1/4-1/2 cup of sauce on the ham.

You can easily spray the meat on all sides if you keep the rotisserie moving.

Cook for another 15 minutes to enable the sauce to seep through the slices and give extra finger-licking flavor.

Look at how delicious everything looks.

As previously said, you may eat this with a knife and fork or stack it over some sweet Hawaiian buns to make sliders.

Can I make Hawaiian Sliders in Advance?

You very certainly can. You may follow all of the instructions and then wrap everything separately. Layer everything when it’s time to cook lunch or serve a hungry audience. These sliders can be served hot or cold.
