Cheeseburger Sliders (Easy, 30-min Recipe)

We made these Cheeseburger sliders for our daughter’s 5th birthday party and we loved not having to stand over the grill to make traditional burgers. I made them earlier in the day which was amazing and took the stress out of making food for a large crowd. The kids were crazy about these cute little hamburger sliders and they disappeared so fast!

P.S. You can easily cut this recipe exactly in half (keeping the baking instructions the same) to feed a smaller family.

Hamburger Sliders baked on a baking sheet

The Best Rolls for Sliders:

To make these burger sliders, use a 24-pack of dinner rolls (or 2 smaller 12-packs). We love the King’s Hawaiian Roll brand for making sliders and our favorite flavors are original Hawaiian Sweet and Savory Butter. You can also use homemade dinner rolls.

Ingredients for mini cheeseburgers with Hawaiian dinner rolls, ground beef, cheese, mayo, onion, seasonings, butter and sesame seeds

The Best Ground Beef for Cheeseburger Sliders:

Stick with lean ground beef – either 90/10 (10% fat content) or 93/7 (7% fat content). You can use ground beef with a higher fat content if that is what you have on hand since you will be spooning out the extra fat and liquid.

Cooking lean ground beef for sliders

Tips for Making Hamburger Sliders:

  • Spoon out the excess fat and liquid release from the beef so you don’t end up with soggy buns.
  • Lining the bottom buns with cheese and covering the beef with cheese seals in the juiciness of the beef without making the buns too moist.
  • Apply the sesame seeds as soon as you brush on the butter and they will stick better to the buns.
  • Bake uncovered so the rolls don’t sweat and become soggy.

Can I Make these Ahead?

Yes! Sliders can be pre-made even a day ahead then covered and refrigerated. If baking from chilled sliders, add an extra 3 minutes or so when baking, or until hot and the cheese is melted.

Sliders also reheat really well. To reheat sliders: microwave each slider uncovered 15-20 seconds or just until the beef is heated through and cheese is melted.

What to Serve with Sliders:

Sliders are so fun because they can be served as an appetizer, lunch, or main course for dinner. We keep it simple and serve sliders with chilled dill pickles. They are also amazing with Baked Potato Wedges. Because these have the classic profile of cheeseburgers, try dipping them into homemade burger sauces, or use your favorite condiments like ketchup, mayo, and mustard.

Ingredients

  • 2 lb lean ground beef, (90/10 or 93/7 fat content)
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 large yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 8 slices medium cheddar cheese
  • 6 oz medium cheddar, shredded (or used more sliced cheese)
  • 24 dinner rolls, (or use 2 packs of 12)
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted, plus more to grease baking sheet
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Butter the bottom of a rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Place a large skillet over medium/high heat with 1/2 Tbsp olive oil. Add diced onion then 2 lbs ground beef and break up with a spatula. Season with 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper, and 1 tsp garlic powder. Sautee over medium/high heat, breaking up the beef and cook just until cooked through then remove from heat.
  3. Tilt skillet to spoon off and discard excess fat. Stir in 1/4 cup mayo.
  4. Cut buns in half. Place bottom half of dinner rolls on buttered baking sheet and line bread with sliced cheese. Spread ground beef mixture evenly over the sliced cheese, using the back of a spatula to square off the edges. Cover the ground beef with 6 oz of shredded cheddar.

  5. Place the top of buns, cut-side down, over the burgers. Brush tops with 2 Tbsp melted butter and immediately sprinkle tops with sesame seeds. Bake at 350˚F for 12-15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and tops are golden brown.

    Boy O Boy! Those cheeseburger sliders are great! I’ve made them a couple of times and enjoyed them each time. I made them early in the week and had them for lunch with chips and fruit. Couldn’t ask for a better lunch. I love burgers so much I could eat them every day. those sliders are no exception. I will be making this recipe for some bigger occasions than just my lunch.

      Hi Jeanie, I’m not sure which mayo and grease mixture you’re referring to? In step number 3, we instruct to spoon off and discard excess fat. Then you will mix the 1/4 mayonnaise into the beef. You can watch these steps in the recipe video. We discard the fat and mix the mayo starting at minute mark 1:09. I hope that helps.

    I just love everything you make and these are my absolute favorite way to serve burgers and everyone who eats them LOVES them! I wanted to say that I used this slider technique to make sloppy joes (using your recipe of course!!) and they were absolutely delicious! I made sure to use sliced cheese on top AND bottom buns so they didn’t get soggy and they were perfect. I made them last week and my son already wants me to make them again. Highly recommend.

    These were very disappointing. They were very dry and rather tasteless. I use the 90/10 beef And even added a bit extra of the mayo and they were still dry. Also if I did make them again I’d add something to them to give them flavor maybe some hot sauce or Worcestershire.

      February 7, 2022

      Hi Jean, it could be due to using very lean meat or overcooking the ground beef which could cause it to seem dry. Also, make sure to add the mayo the the meat mixture which adds a lot of moisture.

      Hi Kay, are you referring to the buns or the meat? We don’t separate the buns when we put them together, making it a bit easier. If you’re referring to the meat, I recommend ensuring the amount of beef versus other ingredients is called for in the recipe. I hope you love this recipe!

    I tried this recipe a few months ago for game day snacks and loved it so much that I sometimes just make it for dinner because I crave them. They are so easy to make and so tasty. I add crumbled bacon and green chile sometimes. They are also great the next day if we do ever have some left over. I have some family that prefer miracle whip over mayo so I’m wondering if they would be able to taste the difference in the meat?

    I made these and they were HUGE hit at an outdoor concert last night.
    Easy to transport. Cooked the beef mixture the day before (you don’t have to ) and heated it up prior to placing the beef on the cheese layered buns. They came out perfect. The sesame
    seeds on top add to the taste and presentation. Will be making these again and again. Will make these for my 30 year old children coming for the Thanksgiving weekend. Plan to make these for a picnic at the Memphis Botanical Gardens.

    I really liked these and was happy the buns weren’t soggy but I did find the meat a little dry. Anything I could do to fix that?

      Hi, it could be due to using very lean meat or overcooking the ground beef which could cause it to seem dry. Also, make sure to add the mayo the the meat mixture which adds a lot of moisture.

    These are delicious. I’ve made them before but my brother hates onions he could taste them last time. So I’m thinking this time around can I put onions on half of the sliders and the other half no?

    Have you ever toasted the buns first under the broiler before assembling? Im using sour dough rolls so im just wanting them to be as soft and not dried out if possible, since they’re more firn than regular dinner rolls. Whats your professional opinion Natasha? 🙂

    I’ve made this recipe using Lipton onion soup mix in the ground beef and completed the sliders like in your recipe. It tasted like White Castles which are popular in St. Louis where I’m from. I will have to try it your way, they sure look delicious!

    I’m making these for a crowd. Can I spread some of the hamburger sauce on the bun and bake or will it be soggy. I don’t think dipping in a bowl is feasible for a big group. They look delicious – can’t wait to make them.

      Hi B, I bet that could work. If you’re making them not too far in advance, they shouldn’t get soggy. But, we found serving the sauce on the side to be best since people can enjoy it if they prefer it with sauce.

    I was very skeptical about this recipe when I first read it. Breaking up the meat sounded really odd instead of making small patties.

    I decided to make it anyway but made a few changes and oh boy am I glad I did.

    The changes I made when browning the meat I used 1 tsp of onion powder and 1 tablespoon of wisticher sauce.

    Rather than using mayo, I used 1/2 of the 1/4th of a cup to add mustard. The other half of 1/4th of a cup I used ketchup. This recipe is absolutely delicious and I’ll be making it again.

    Hi Natasha, I want to make about 120 of these for my daughter’s graduation party. Do you have suggestions for making a large quantity? Most important, how do I reheat all at once? It wouldn’t be convenient to microwave each one for 10-15 seconds. Thank you so much for your help!!

      Hi Michelle! Wow! That’s a lot of sliders, and I love it!! If you have more than one oven or a large one, this will help the process, but you will likely need to bake these in batches and keep them warm if you have one oven. Luckily, the bulk of the work can be done ahead of time and refrigerated until you’re ready to reheat.

    I made these tonight using your dinner roll recipe and they were amazing. I have a son who is gluten intolerant so I used all purpose einkorn to make the dinner rolls and still followed your recipe exactly. They came out perfect. The softest dinner rolls I have ever had and light and fluffy even though einkorn has a lot less gluten in them (thus can be eaten by many gluten intolerant people). Thank you so much for this recipe. I will be using it often.

    Great sliders! I did a half recipe and used yellow mustard instead of the mayo. Also used Hawaiian rolls. Otherwise no changes, it’s good as written.

    I set a 1″ cutting board behind the rolls on the counter. I rested the tip of the knife on the board to keep the back half of the rolls evenly cut and judged the front half at 1″ as I sawed throught them to keep the top and bottom slices even.
