Beef Sliders

We love to grill burgers in the summer ... who doesn't? Sometimes, it's nice to  do things a little different though. These Beef Sliders couldn't be simpler and they are perfect for a rainy day when grilling just doesn't seem reasonable. (Although, I have been known to grill in the rain ... and the snow - and yes, always in my flip-flops!) They are somewhat reminiscent of Krystal's or White Castle. I have included the link to make your own rolls, but if you prefer, you can definitely use store-bought! 







Beef Sliders
Printable recipe
Yield: 24 sliders

1 medium onion, chopped into small pieces
1-1/2 to 2 lb. lean ground beef
Salt & pepper, to taste
Buttery Rolls or other similar rolls
8 oz. shredded Cheddar cheese
Favorite condiments (ketchup, mustard, pickles, etc ...)

Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Sprinkle the chopped onion evenly in the baking sheet. Break ground beef into chunks and put on top of the onions. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and use your hands to flatten the beef, covering the onions evenly. (See picture below). Get it as flat, even and close to the edges as you can. This layer will be very thin. Discard the plastic wrap. Season with salt and pepper.

Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the beef is cooked through. Remove the pan from the oven and carefully drain the grease. (You don't want the meat falling out with it!) Top the beef with shredded cheese. Return to the oven to melt cheese, about 2-4 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven. Using a pizza cutter, cut the beef into approximately 2-in. squares (or the size of your rolls). Place patties on top of rolls and serve with your favorite condiments.





In the above picture, the slider on the right was cut into a square - the edges were trimmed ... the slider on the left, has a "scraggly" edge (on the left) because it was an edge piece when it was cooked. We personally don't care if it has the edges, so we left them. If you prefer to have "unscraggly" edges, you can trim them up to make all perfect squares! Of course, eat the scraggly parts before someone catches you! ;)

I hope you enjoy!

  1. These sliders sound really tasty and easy to make. Sometimes it actually gets too hot to grill here in Arkansas, temps over 100* for the past week, so putting them in the oven is a good alternative.

    1. The great thing is, the oven doesn't even have to be on very long because they cook so quick! I think most of the country is feeling the heat this weekend - going to be 102 here in Eastern NC today. Try to stay cool, Anita and have a great weekend :)

  2. I have never had a slider, but I`ve always wanted one. I love anything mini, although I tend to eat more the smaller it is.
    These look delicious!

  13. Jamie,
    This looks delish! I love that all the meat is cooked together and you don't have to flip a ton of tiny burgers. Brilliant idea! Pinning this. Thanks for sharing at Creative Thursday.

    1. I'm all about making my life easier :) Cooking for a family of 7 would be a lot of little burgers to flip!
