The first time I made sliders was over a year ago. In fact, it was for the baby’s first birthday party (funny thing that we call her a baby and she’s almost two years old). Guests gave me good feedback, when I made these then. And my family loves them so much that I’ve continued to make them.
It’s an easy meal, only involving a handful of ingredients and it’s done – from start to finish – in abut 30 minutes. I’m a true fan of quick meals. I have also made this recipe with ground turkey. And if tweaked a bit, you could possibly make it with pulled pork and other meats. Though, I have not personally ventured from ground meats yet.
I used one pound of ground beef, added onions and seasoned salt; mixing it well to distribute the taste as evenly as possible. While preheating the oven to 400°F.
Then I gently pressed the mix into a 8×8 baking pan and poked holes to let the meat breath as it cooked. Once cooked for 20 minutes, I carefully removed the pan from the oven and drained the liquid.
Next, I topped the meat with cheese and set it aside to let it melt slowly. I buttered and toasted the rolls – totally optional – in the oven for about 1 1/2 minutes. Once the rolls were ready, I cut the meat into squares and made the sliders. I added some toppings like the Kraft Chipotle Mayonnaise that we’re obsessed with in our home. Then topped another slider with ketchup, mustard and pickles.
So much goodness in under 30 minutes! I hope you give these a try. And if you try variations of this recipe with other meats, share them here.
