Pesto Ham Sliders

When we travel, I like to have something easy to eat on hand. Luckily, the Pesto Ham Sliders are just that. I can prepare them ahead of time and easily reheat them when we stop. 

We are huge fans of slider buns and always have them on hand. They’re easy to make breakfast, lunch or dinners with. Another one of our favorites are the Taco Sliders
