Thank you to King’s Hawaiian for partnering with me in bringing you this Spicy Cuban Sliders Recipe! The opinions and text are all mine.
I got an unexpected phone call recently letting me know that my daughter’s lunch account was more than $5 overdrawn. I thought that seemed off because I had deposited a large amount in both my kid’s accounts that should have lasted until the end of the year. (We try to pack our lunches most days, but I often let my kids choose if they want to bring/purchase based on the menu and whether or not we have lunchy-type items on hand.)
I immediately logged on to her account and discovered she’s been buying lunch even on the days I’ve packed her lunch AND I she’s purchased herself a 2nd breakfast on several occasions!
As you might guess, this little discovery had me slightly annoyed because the lunches I pack for them aren’t free and I know they have a good breakfast every morning. When I asked about it, she said, she would “forget” she brought her lunch or would leave the lunch box in the classroom.
I asked her what happened to the rest of the food; she said she would eat the treats and fruit from her lunch and throw the rest out. As for the extra breakfasts, the school makes the kids go to the cafeteria if they arrive before 7:25 and what do you do when you go to the cafeteria? Well… you eat!
I made her take money from her savings and pay me back for all the extra purchases. We’ve now had several conversations regarding this situation. Hopefully, this will be the end of it. We’ll see.
Making lunch for a child who says she hates sandwiches can be a difficult task. I’m not sure if it’s sandwiches she doesn’t like or if she just wants to eat school lunches and snack-y foods. The funny thing is, she never turns down a sandwich made with specialty deli meat and spicy mustard on a Kings Hawaiian Roll.
You know these rolls. They come in the bright orange package; they’re soft, fluffy and yummy with just a touch of sweetness. The King’s Hawaiian Rolls are the perfect size for sliders, kid-sized sandwiches and snacks.
King’s Hawaiian has added an all-new Jalapeño Roll to their line up. This new roll has an irresistible sweet and spicy flavor combination that will add a kick to any occasion. Both my kids have an affinity for spicy flavorful foods, (this trait definitely comes from their Dad) and I knew these rolls would be the perfect complement to the Cuban Sandwich I had planned for dinner.

Looks yummy right? These Spicy Cuban Sliders are the perfect little handful of flavor. The shredded pork, ham and swiss cheese come together for deliciously warm and melty slider! Perfect for lunch or dinner. (My daughter thought these were the best thing ever, but they’re probably not the best choice for packing in a school lunch. lol.
Don’t worry- I grabbed an extra bag to make sandwiches for their lunches.)

These were so good! Kids loved them. I just used regular Hawaiian Rolls.
Where did you find the jalapeño rolls? I went to 5 grocery stores and none of them carried them. 🙁
Walmart or HEB, I can’t remember which. Possibly they are not available now, but the regular Hawaiian rolls will be yummy too. To make the spicy, just add a little sriracha to your slider.
Is this prepared pulled pork the kind without a sauce added in?
I don’t like swiss cheese, what other cheese would be good to use?
You could try provolone or mild cheddar.
These look so amazing! Perfect for appetizers or a nice lunch. I love the Hawaiian rolls as well so that is icing on the cake!
These look amazing! I absolutely love cubans! They are one of my favorites! I will definitely have to try these.
We love Kings Hawaiian! Just picked up a few packs last week. These would be super simple for lunch this week
I love sliders and these sound amazing! What a great idea for summer!
These look so good! A fun quick appetizer to have with some friends over! I need to make this!
Perfect timing! I just made 10 lbs of pulled pork! Need to pick up some swiss cheese and I’m all set
