ROAST BEEF SLIDERS INGREDIENTS

You’ll need:

  • 1 package Hawaiian rolls (18-count)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 pound medium cheddar cheese
  • 1 pound sliced deli roast beef
  • ½ cup salted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds

PRO TIP:

A full pound of roast beef slices is going to give you some nice layers of roast beef instead of just one layer for these sandwiches.

 Sometimes grocery stores only have the 12-pack of rolls so you can buy 2 and use as many as you need to fill your baking dish.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

TOPPINGS: French fried onions would add extra flavor and plenty of crunch to these roast beef sandwiches

CHEESE: You can opt for a different type of cheese if you prefer. Try slices of provolone cheese, swiss cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, or spicy jalapeño cheese.

DELI MEAT: Whether you buy your roast beef at the deli counter or prepackaged, both will be yummy in these sliders.

HOW TO MAKE THIS ROAST BEEF SLIDERS RECIPE

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350°F. 

STEP TWO: Slice the whole sheet of Hawaiian sweet rolls in half, keeping the individual rolls attached to each other. Set the top half of the rolls aside.

STEP THREE: Place the rolls in a 9×13 glass baking dish.

STEP FOUR: Spread mayonnaise over the rolls.

STEP FIVE: Top with a generous layer of overlapping slices of cheddar cheese.

STEP SIX: Mound roast beef over the cheese layer.

STEP SEVEN: Top with another generous layer of cheddar cheese.

STEP EIGHT: Place the tops of the rolls over the prepared sliders.

STEP NINE: In a small bowl, whisk together melted butter, mustard, barbecue sauce, and poppy seeds.

STEP TEN: Drizzle butter mixture over the rolls and use a pastry brush to spread the mixture over the top of the buns.

PRO TIP:

Don’t skimp on the butter. It soaks into all the nooks and crannies and adds a ton of flavor to both the top and the bottom half of the slider buns.

STEP ELEVEN: Cover the baking pan with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the aluminum foil and cook for about 5 minutes longer or until the top of the rolls are toasted and golden brown.

PRO TIP:

The rolls will toast on top quickly, so it is important to cover the full pan with a sheet of aluminum foil for the full 30 minutes to allow the cheese to melt all the way in the center of the dish. Once the rolls are hot and melty all the way through, remove the foil and continue cooking for just a few moments to toast the tops of the buns.

STEP TWELVE: Serve these roast beef and cheddar sliders immediately.

HOW TO SERVE

These easy roast beef sliders make an easy meal on a busy night or would be a big hit at a game day party. Little sandwiches are a fun finger food option just like our buffalo chicken pinwheels and pull apart pigs in a blanket.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: Store your hawaiian roll sliders, refrigerated, in an airtight container for 2 to 3 days.

IN THE FREEZER: These Hawaiian roll roast beef and cheese sandwiches can also be frozen for up to 1 month. 

Roast beef and cheese sliders are stuffed full of tender beef and gooey cheese all on a sweet Hawaiian roll brushed with a buttery sauce. These would be an appetizing choice for both dinner or to serve at a party.
