Sliders Recipe

To start off, we’ll need 1 pound of good ol’ ground beef. Ground beef is a classic choice for sliders, as it brings a rich and juicy texture to each patty. Make sure to choose a lean variety, which will help keep the sliders moist without being overly greasy.

When shaping the patties make sure to take small portions of the seasoned ground beef and gently form them into mini patties. Aim for a size that will fit perfectly on your slider buns. Remember, sliders are all about being bite-sized and cute!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use a different type of cheese?

Of course! While American cheese is commonly used for sliders, feel free to explore different cheese options based on your preferences. Cheddar, Swiss, pepper jack, or even a combination of cheeses can add unique flavors to your sliders.

Can I make the sliders ahead of time?

You can prepare the sliders ahead of time by assembling the patties, cooking them, and then refrigerating or freezing them. When you’re ready to enjoy, simply reheat the sliders in the oven or microwave and serve.

Are slider buns easily available?

Slider buns can be found in most grocery stores or bakeries. If you can’t find them, you can also use dinner rolls or small-sized burger buns as an alternative.

Can I make mini sliders for a party?

Sliders are perfect for parties. Simply adjust the size of the patties and buns to create mini sliders that are easy to handle and enjoy in a social setting.

  • In a large pan or skillet, combine the ground beef, salt, and pepper. Cook the beef over medium heat until it is cooked all the way through.
  • Place the bottom half of the slider buns in a glass baking dish and top them with the ground beef.
  • Layer the American cheese over the ground beef and top with the remaining slider buns.
  • Melt the butter in a microwave safe dish and use a spoon or pastry brush to top the buns with the butter. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over the top the sliders.
  • Cover the pan with aluminum foil and broil on high for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  • Serve and enjoy!


  • Covering the sliders with tin foil will help prevent the top of the sliders from burning while under the broiler.
  • The size of pan you will need will depend on the size of buns you are using.
  • I like to use American kraft singles, but you can also use sliced cheddar cheese or any of your other favorite cheeses in this recipe.
  • I like to keep the seasoning on this beef light in order to let the flavor of the meat shine, but you can add some minced onion and minced garlic to add a little extra flavor if you’d like.
  • These sliders are best served fresh, but you can store them in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheat them in the microwave or in the broiler covered with tin foil.
