Beef and cheese sliders ingredients
- Ground beef: While a lot of beef sliders use roast beef, we’re keeping it simple with ground beef so we can cook our filling much faster. Less time cooking, more time eating.
- Onion: A diced onion will really help to add flavor, aroma, and a bit of natural sweetness into the filling.
- Salt: We just need a little salt to help bring out and enhance the flavors in this filling.
- BBQ sauce: Use your favorite BBQ sauce or one that you think would taste great with cheddar cheese as a contrast.
- Hawaiian rolls: We want to use that large pack of 12 dinner rolls. These will come in an orange bag and the rolls are stuck together making assembly very easy.
- Butter: Using melted butter over the top of the rolls will give it a nice golden color.
- Parsley: Adding fresh or dried parsley over the top will help to add a little color and flavor to the top of the rolls.
- Garlic: Everything is better with garlic and adding a little over the top of these rolls will really help to give us a great flavor in every bite.
How to make BBQ beef sliders
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a frying pan, cook the ground beef until it is almost browned.
- Add in the onion and salt and then continue to cook until the ground beef is fully cooked and the onion has softened.
- Stir in your BBQ sauce until everything is well coated.
- Remove your rolls from the package, but leave them stuck together.
- Slice the rolls in half all at once lengthwise through the middle so that there is a top and a bottom.
- Place the bottom of the rolls in a 9×13 baking dish.
- Spread the top of the rolls with the ground beef mixture.
- Top with cheese.
- Place the top half of the rolls over the cheese.
- In a small bowl combine your melted butter, parsley, and garlic.
- Spread the mixture evenly over the top of the rolls.
- Bake in the oven, covered in foil for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melty.
Can I prepare BBQ Beef sliders in advance?
Yes, you can prepare the rolls by removing them from the packaging and slicing them in half, then return them to the package and them seal closed until ready to use. You can also make the BBQ beef filling and keep it stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Just use when ready and follow the recipe directions. Do not assemble sliders in advance as the bread will become soggy from the filling, so only assemble just before baking.
