I saw a video by Tastemade some time ago on how to make 4 types of sliders, and I knew I had to try making them. I was going to make the cheeseburger sliders for a potluck tonight, but the host came down with fever and had to cancel (get well soon, Elle!). I was really looking forward to trying these sliders, so I decided to go ahead and make them anyway.
I wasn’t really paying attention while shopping at the grocer earlier, and picked up emmental slices instead of cheddar (what was I thinking?? Boo). Decided to use them anyway, but as expected the cheese taste was so mild so we had to supplement with Chesdale slices for added flavor.
Some things I would improve on next time: I’ll try to spread the meat wider and let it ride up to the sides of the tray the next time, because the meat will shrink quite a lot when cooked. I’m going to try using normal minced beef instead of the weight watcher’s version, and reduce the cooking time to 15 minutes, to see if that improves on the juiciness. I’ll also double the amount of cheese, and drizzle ketchup or mustard for added flavor.
Will definitely make this again!
- 1 kg ground beef
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons pepper
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 12 dinner rolls, halved lengthwise
- 1 small yellow onion, diced
- 8 slices cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (160 degrees fan).
In a large 11″ by 15″ baking tray, add the ground beef, salt, pepper and garlic powder, and mix well by hand until thoroughly combined. Flatten the mixture to evenly cover the entire base of the tray, allowing the edges to rise to the sides if possible. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, until browned. Transfer the cooked beef to a plate, and pour any juices from the tray onto the beef.
Place the bottom half of the dinner rolls in the dish. Place the cooked beef layer on the rolls, followed by the onions and the cheddar. Top with the remaining half of the dinner rolls.
Brush the top of the dinner rolls with melted butter, and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
When done, slice into individual sliders and serve.
