Dream Cruise Sliders

Less than 2 months til the Woodward Dream Cruise!  Make these little Slim Jim like sliders as you cruise or gaze!

Makes 12 sliders

1/2 cup roughly chopped onion
3/4 cup roughly chopped Kosher dill pickles
1 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbl ketchup
3 Tbl prepared horseradish
12 thin slices smoked deli ham
6 thin slices deli Swiss cheese
12 slider buns or small dinner rolls
12 thin slices tomato (about the same size in diameter as the buns)
Shredded romaine lettuce

In a mini food processor, process the onion and pickle until a little chunky but slushy.  Combine this mixture in a smallish mixing bowl with the mayo, ketchup and horseradish. Refrigerate a couple of hours before assembling your sliders.
For each slider, spread the cut sides of the bun with the sauce.  Lay some of the shredded lettuce over the bottom and then fold a slice of ham to fit over.  Add a half slice of the cheese over the ham, cutting to fit, and top with a tomato slice.  Place the top half of the bun over.  Repeat for the rest of the sliders.  Wrap them in paper, toss into the cooler and be on your merry way!!


  1. Less than 2 months until I'm trapped at my house in Ferndale :) hahaha, just kidding. I could go for a few of these sliders for lunch this week!

    1. I know what you're saying..My Dad still lives pretty close to Woodward in RO and my daughter used to live a block from there in RO also...

    2. I'd actually totally love it if it were just a one or two-day event - it obviously brings a TON of money to businesses in this area, so that's great. The problem is that people start Dream Crusin' like three weeks prior! It's crazy!

  2. It's certainly not the same as cruising was during the 60s!
