Baked Cheeseburger Sliders

Okay, friends, I have been waiting for these little sliders to pop up on my blogging calendar because they are so dang delicious!

This isn’t even a recipe, it’s just an idea for the next time you want a fun twist on burger night, have company coming over, want to serve a really hearty appetizer, etc.  We made small little burger patties and built a very yummy burger (hello, Catalina dressing!) and then put them on a Hawaiian Roll and baked them in the oven.  They were insane!  You could obviously build yours any way you like, but I thought our mix was just right!  The weekend is calling and it says to make my Baked Cheeseburger Sliders!


Baked Cheeseburger Sliders

  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 12 sliders 1x


Whether you’re looking for a twist on burger night, hearty appetizers or food for a crowd, these Baked Cheeseburger Sliders will be a hit!



  • 2 pounds of ground beef
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • about 2 tablespoons of your favorite steak seasoning
  • about 2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Catalina salad dressing (for drizzling, you won’t need the whole bottle)
  • All of your favorite burger toppings: mustard, chopped red onion, dill pickles, etc.
  • a dozen dinner rolls (we used King’s Hawaiian Rolls)
  • a little butter to top each slider


  1. Preheat your outdoor grill or indoor grill pan over medium-high heat.  Also, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. First, you need to make your burger patties!  In a mixing bowl, combine your ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, and steak seasoning together.  Divide this mixture into 12 sections and make 12 small patties (make sure to press down each patty a little in the center to avoid the “burger bulge” when they grill).
  3. Add your burger patties to the grill and begin grilling (we do about 3 minutes or so each side).  Remove patties and then assemble burgers.
  4. Take each roll and build your slider: patty, shredded cheese, toppings, a drizzle of your Catalina dressing and then top it with the other side of the roll.
  5. Place all of your sliders in a lightly greased (I used Pam) 9×12 baking dish and then put just a little butter on the tops of each one.
  6. Pop them in the oven and bake 10 minutes.
  7. Remove and serve.


If you’re making these for a crowd, they’re really easy because you can assemble them in advance and just pop them in the oven at the last minute.  Super simple!
