Sometimes a cheeseburger just hits the spot, and these sliders are no exception. They may be small, but still pack a punch with loads of flavor. Big things can come in little packages. Like the great taste of a savory burger with melted cheddar cheese delivered in a smaller size. This means you can eat more of them.
These sliders are simple, delicious, and a great way to feed a group, like your family. Any leftovers are easy to heat up. I decided to use the classic ketchup and mustard combo on some of the sliders, and chipotle aioli on the others for a spicy option. Both are so tasty! You can customize the burgers to your liking. Here is how I made them. Enjoy!
Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Proverbs 3:3
2 lbs. ground beef
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. onion powder
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 to 2 onions, diced
24 Hawaiian rolls, or slider rolls
12 slices medium cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
chipotle aioli sauce
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- In a 15 x 10 inch baking pan, place the ground beef, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well with your hands. Press the beef mixture evenly into the bottom of the baking dish, to fill the pan. Bake the ground beef in the oven for 20 minutes.
- While the beef is in the oven, cook onions over medium heat in a skillet with a little oil until the onions are translucent.
- Line a large baking sheet with parchment or foil. Place the rolls on the baking sheet. Slice them in half, cutting the tops off, and placing them to the side.
- Put ketchup and mustard on half of the roll bottoms, and chipotle aioli sauce on the other half.
- Cut the cooked beef in half, and place each half on the two separate slider roll bottoms.
- Spread the cooked onion on top of the cooked beef halves, then place 6 slices of cheddar cheese across the top of each half.
- Place the roll tops on the cheese. Brush melted butter across the rolls. Sprinkle sesame seeds evenly over the butter.
- Cook the sliders in a 350° oven for 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese is melted and the rolls are browned.
- Slice into individual sliders. Enjoy!
*After the beef is cooked, take it out of the baking dish and place it on some paper towels to absorb some of the fat. Do this before you place it on the roll bottoms. This will help the rolls from getting soggy.
* The ketchup, mustard, and aioli are not required. You can just as easily leave those out, but I highly recommend a little topping. It adds another delicious component.
