How to Make This Easy Cheeseburger Slider Bake
Preheat the oven to 350F.
In a mixing bowl, combine the ground meat and the seasonings and mix together thoroughly. I find the easiest way to do this, is by hand.
Then transfer the seasoned meat into a baking dish and flatten it out on the bottom.
Bake for 20 minutes uncovered.
Add 1 1/2 to 2 cups of cheese to the baked meat and then place it back in the oven for another 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
Remove from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes.
Remove Hawaiian rolls from packaging and slice rolls.
Slice the baked cheeseburgers into 9 sections.
Place meat and cheese mixture on the rolls, serve, and enjoy!
Any leftover sliders can be stored in an airtight container or wrapped with aluminum foil and kept at room temp for a few days. If storing more than a few hours, you should wait to assemble them so the Hawaiian rolls don’t get soggy.
Tips and Variations
- Make some bacon cheeseburger sliders by getting some precooked bacon or cook some bacon while this dish bakes and add a piece of a crispy bacon slice to each slider.
- No shredded cheese? No problem. Add a few slices of cheddar cheese on top of the meat mixture. You can use individual slices of cheese on top of these baked cheeseburger sliders.
- For even more comfort food flavor- lather some melted butter on the bottom buns before you add the hamburger meat and cheese on top. Additionally, once you’ve made the added the beef mixture with the cheese, and the top of the buns, you can add more melted butter on top of the rolls and sprinkle on some oregano or Italian seasoning and toss them back in the oven for just a few minutes to make the buns all toasty. Do not put them in the oven for long as you don’t want to burn the bun tops.
- Use a serrated knife to cut the cheeseburger sliders. It’s also helpful to cut the buns in half if they aren’t presliced.
Can I double this recipe?
Certainly! This recipe is great for feed a large crowd. I like to make these easy cheeseburger sliders when I’m hosting a game day party, backyard bbq, or birthday party. Instead of putting everything in an baking dish, double the recipe and make these sliders in a baking sheet.
If I know I’ll be feeding a hungry crowd, I’ll make 2 double batches of these little cheeseburger sliders and save whatever leftovers we have for the next day.
What if I can’t find Hawaiian Rolls?
Sometimes the store can be out, but when you’re trying to stick to your meal plan, it’s hard to deviate from the recipes you already have planned out. Instead of Hawaiian rolls, you can use any dinner rolls that they have, the smaller burger buns with the sesame seeds, or mini slider buns.
Can I add toppings?
Of course you can! You just know I’m all about simplicity here. But if you’re looking for more flavor to this easy dinner, try adding:
- some diced onions
- a diced up pickle slice
- any of your other favorite burger toppings
