Tracy came across this recipe for roast beef cheese sliders awhile back, and we thought we’d give it a go. Lots of people have something like this for a party, holiday get together, or tailgating on game day. We just happened to have it for dinner just to try it out. The first thing you have to decide is how much you’re going to make. This recipe makes 12 sliders, which can easily feed 3-4 people (if you have 3-4 each). To feed more, just double or triple the recipe.
- About 3/4 lb of sliced roast beef (from the deli)
- Butter – 2 tbsp (not margarine, separated)
- Kings Hawaiian rolls (1 pack, sweet works best)
- 8 oz. Horseradish cheddar cheese, or sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 tbsp. brown sugar
- salt to taste
- Italian seasoning to taste
- 1 sweet onion, diced
Pre-heat your oven to 350.
These are pretty simple to make. In a small saucepan melt 1 tbsp butter with the brown sugar, and add the onions. Sautee the mixture on medium heat for 5-8 minutes until the onions are carmelized, set aside. Take a sheet pan (cookie sheet), and take the Kings Hawaiian rolls out of the pack (do not separate). Place the entire “block of rolls” on the pan, and using a break knife carefully slice the entire bunch horizontally so you have a top and bottom piece.
Using the bottom piece on the pan, add a slice of roast beef or so on top of each individual roll in that section. Top it with a tsp or so of the onion mixture, and add a slice of cheese on top. The horseradish cheddar cheese really goes well and gives these a great flavor. If you can’t find that, use a really good sharp cheddar cheese. Then place the top section of buns on top, brush with the remaining 1 tbsp of butter, and then sprinkle Italian seasonings on top. Bake for 10-12 minutes or so or until tops are browned and cheese is all melted.
Enjoy! Hope you like these are much as we did. They go well with coleslaw, or maybe a nice asian cashew salad like we had the night we made them.
