Cheeseburger Sliders Ingredient Notes
For this Cheeseburger Sliders Recipe, you’ll need a package of two dozen slider buns. When making sliders, I really like using Hawaiian Rolls.
The hamburger mixture is then created with lean ground beef, diced onion, Worcestershire sauce, mayo, seasoned salt, salt, ground black pepper, and garlic powder. Once the seasoned burger is on the buns, it’s topped with shredded cheddar cheese.
Before the sliders head to the oven, their tops are brushed with melted butter and sprinkled with sesame seeds. After the burgers are cooked, it’s time to load on your favorite toppings! We always reach for pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, ketchup, and mustard!
Busy Family Tip: If everyone in the family loves ketchup, go ahead and add it right in with the ground beef before spreading it on the rolls, you can do this with mustard too!
How To Make Cheeseburger Sliders
- Fry up the onion in a large skillet with olive oil. Once softened, add in the ground beef and cook until browned through.
- Stir in the Worcestershire sauce, mayo, seasoned salt, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Afterward, remove the skillet from the heat and drain the grease if necessary.
- Slice the entire block of slider rolls in half and place the bottom halves into the prepared baking pan.
- Spread the beef mixture over the bottom half of the rolls. Afterward, sprinkle grated cheese over it and cover it with the top buns.
- Brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter and sprinkle on sesame seeds.
- Bake until the cheese has melted and the tops are golden brown.
Easy Cheeseburger Sliders Recipe FAQs
Can I Use Cheese Slices Instead Of Shredded Cheese?
Yes, you could use American cheese slices, Colby jack, or any sliced cheese of your preference.
What Can I Substitute For Seasoned Salt?
Replacing the seasoned salt with a teaspoon of regular salt would be fine. If you’d rather, you could also make homemade seasoned salt. To do this, combine 1/4 teaspoon of each: onion powder, paprika, chili powder, and salt.
Can I Swap The Ground Beef Out For Ground Turkey?
Absolutely, that would be a delicious and easy variation to enjoy! No other adjustments need to be made in order to make the swap.
When’s The Best Time To Add Toppings To These Burgers?
I find it best for everyone to add their toppings after they’ve baked. The top pops off easily, and then everyone can add the condiments and toppings that they prefer!
Can I Use Minced Garlic Or Garlic Paste?
Yes, you can replace the powder with 1 1/2 tablespoons of minced garlic or 1 tablespoon of garlic paste.
How Do You Store Leftover Cheeseburger Sliders?
Store the leftover sliders in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. You could also freeze them for up to 3 months.
To reheat them, microwave the sliders on high for 35 seconds. For a crispier bun, you can reheat them in the air fryer at 350 degrees F for 3 minutes.
