Sliders for the Super Bowl

It has been a while since I posted something, I have kinda been busy.  I am not a Super Bowl fan but Michael loves football.  This year I decided to make sliders for him.  I am not usually good at making burgers, they tend to fall apart.  I found this recipe and it seemed easy.  It was VERY easy!

Easy Oven-Baked Cheeseburger Sliders

  • 2 pounds, 93% lean ground sirloin
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 3/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (12-count) Kings Hawaiian sweet dinner rolls (or slider buns)
  • 6 slices cheddar or American cheese

Heat oven to 400 degrees.   In a bowl, combine beef, bread crumbs, onion, and salt.  Gently press mixture into a 9-by-13-inch pan so that it makes one large patty of even thickness.  Use the tines of a fork to poke holes throughout the meat.  Bake for 30 minutes.  As it bakes, the meat will shrink away from the sides and liquid will accumulate around the edges of pan.  When fully cooked, remove the pan from oven (keep oven turned on) and carefully drain off the liquid.

Top the meat with an even layer of sliced cheese; return pan to oven for about 2 minutes or until the cheese melts.  Remove from the oven and allow to rest for a few minutes.  Cut into 2-inch squares (or the size of the buns used), making 12 mini- hamburgers.  Serve with dill pickle slices and ketchup.  Serves 6 at 2 sliders each.

Again this was so easy to make!  I found it easier to cut the rolls in half, add the large meat patty, and then cut it up instead of cutting it before adding to the rolls.  I made two batches.  I did omit the onions, which in hindsight I probably could have added them to the batch made for Michael (his was made with Kings Hawaiian butter rolls instead of sweet rolls).  Everyone loved them but Gabby, she said it had too much spice.  I agreed with her a little  Even our youngest, Lily, ate it and she is just starting to like hamburgers!  It was a great hit though definitely something I would make again, just without the seasoning!
