These little slider grilled cheese sandwiches are packed with flavor and they make the perfect bite-size appetizers and party snack. Filled with a dollop of woodsy mulberry jam, some salty slices of Virginia ham, a couple of bright pickled peach segments, and nutty shreds of gouda and then grilled between two buttery sweet slices of Hawaiian bread, this sandwich packs quite the flavorful punch.

And the best part is that this sandwich is good all year round - whether you're making it in the middle of summer when peaches are perfectly in season or whether you're making it in the dead of winter, after your peaches have been pickling for a few months. 


  • 1 Hawaiian Roll
  • 1/2 tablespoon mulberry jam
  • 2 slices of Virginia Ham
  • 2 slices of pickled peaches
  • 2 small slices of gouda
  • 2 pats of salted butter

  3. Smear some mulberry jam onto 1 side of the roll (I source this from Underground Butcher in Wisconsin) and then gently pile on the ham, the pickled peaches, the cheese, and the other half of the Hawaiian roll. Butter both sides of the sandwich and set aside.

  5. Let cook for a few minutes on each side until the cheese has melted and the bread has crisped up and become golden.
