Ham and Cranberry Sliders

Ham and cranberry sliders have a crunchy topping that is sweet and reminiscent of a delicious ham glaze. The filling is perfect as the cranberry and the ham create that holiday festive flavor we all love so much. I use this recipe on my left overs but if you are cooking for the kids table or making appetizers this is also a good use of a succulent whole ham. Best part of this recipe is there is very little preliminary work that goes into preparing this tasty snack-able. For best results use fresh cranberries and serve fresh. Once I put this on the table my family was drooling from the bread and glaze smell but become near ravenous once they took the first bite. This is a fun to create simple to make recipe that the entire family will enjoy and you will not have spend all day in the kitchen to have these tasty beauties ready to go.
