Ingredients + Substitutions

  • Kings Hawaiian Rolls: These slightly sweet and super soft rolls are a family favorite, making them the perfect base for your sliders. A pack of 12 rolls fits perfectly into an 8×8 pan.
  • Ground Beef: I recommend using lean ground beef to reduce the fat content, but you can use any type of beef since you’ll be draining the fat anyway.
  • Onion: Cooking the ground beef with onion adds an extra layer of flavor without much effort.
  • Worcestershire Sauce: This ingredient is an excellent way to enhance the flavor without adding complexity.
  • American Cheese: For an authentic burger taste, American or cheddar cheese is the way to go. However, you can experiment with other types like Colby jack, pepper jack, or mozzarella.
  • Ketchup and Mustard: I prefer using Heinz ketchup for that true restaurant flavor, but feel free to use your favorite brands.
  • Dill Pickles: No fast food burger is complete without the tangy crunch of dill pickles.
  • Seasonings: Salt, pepper, garlic salt, and sesame seeds are all the seasonings you need for these mini cheeseburger sliders. The sesame seeds and garlic salt create a mouthwatering sauce, while the salt and pepper enhance the flavor of the ground beef.
  • Butter: Prior to baking, brushing the tops of the slider buns with butter adds a delicious touch that takes these baked cheeseburger sliders to the next level.

Steps to make sliders

Recipe Tips

To ensure your sliders turn out perfect, follow these handy tips:

  1. Cut – Before and After: Hawaiian rolls come connected, making it easy to slice them horizontally in half for assembly. Before baking, run a knife along the top lines to cut through the sliders. This allows the garlic butter to soak into the sides, making them easier to serve after baking.
  2. Multiply: The recipe yields 12 sliders, but you can easily double the quantity by using 24 rolls and two pounds of beef.
  3. Warm Ketchup, Trust Me! While not everyone prefers warm ketchup and mustard, it’s a common feature of fast food burgers. Baking the sliders with the condiments intensifies the flavors. However, if you’re not a fan, you can serve the ketchup and mustard on the side, although I highly recommend giving it a try!

Recipe Shortcuts

Short on time? Here are a few ideas that can help you make this recipe even faster:

  • Make the Beef ahead: You can prepare the seasoned beef up to 2 days in advance and store it in the fridge until ready to use. This time-saving step will cut your preparation time in half when making these pull-apart cheeseburger sliders.
  • Freezer Meal: You can make these sliders in advance and freeze them for up to 6 months with a few simple steps outlined below.

Recipe Variations

If you love this recipe and want to add some variety, here are a few quick tips:

  • Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders: Fry or bake some bacon and add it on top of the sliders before baking.
  • Bacon Cheeseburger Sloppy Joe Sliders: Mix the ground beef, onion, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, and mustard in the pan until a saucy beef mixture comes together. Then add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.
  • Cheeseburger Garlic Knot Sliders: Substitute Hawaiian rolls with garlic knots, which make perfect buns for hamburger sliders.
