Cheeseburger Slider Ingredients
- Slider Rolls: I used Kings Hawaiian
- Ground Beef: I used 90% lean.
- Hamburger Seasoning: I like using Hamburger seasoning by Mccormick. If you don’t have that on hand seasoning salt or salt/pepper will work too.
- Cheese: I used American for that classic cheeseburger flavor. Sharp cheddar, would be tasty too!
- Bacon: Cooked crisp. I like Hormel Black Label microwave bacon. Such a time savor as it can cook while I brown the beef.
- Pickles/Ketchup/Mustard: Feel free to add your favorite burger toppings too.
Cheeseburger Slider Recipe
- Prepare buns: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil. Cut sliders in half. Place onto prepared pan. Set tops aside.

Can You Make Cheeseburger Sliders Ahead of Time?
If you are trying to save time and want to make pull apart cheeseburger sliders ahead of time, you certainly can. Follow the cheeseburger sliders recipe until you get to the point of putting the patties onto the rolls. When ready to bake, assemble and stick in the oven. Assembling ahead of time may make your rolls soggy.
How to Reheat
We never have leftover Hawaiian Roll Cheeseburger Sliders in our house! However if you do you can reheat in either the microwave or the oven. If heating in the microwave, wrap the slider in a damp napkin or paper towel. This will keep the buns from getting hard. I would suggest 30-60 seconds depending on the power of your microwave. If reheating in the oven, cover the sliders in aluminum foil and bake until heating through. The foil will prevent the buns from getting over baked.
