These hamburger sliders are easy to make and super delicious! Using a sweet Hawaiian roll or a mini bun you can’t go wrong with these! They are a hit every time!
Burgers- something that is so delicious and easy to make and for some reason so fun to eat in mini form. Normally I love to create a thick juicy burger (like my apple chutney burger) , but I also love a good slider- or 4!
This recipe is great for a party or just a fun dinner! Cook thes up, chop up lots of veggies for toppings and you have a slider making station!
This cheeseburger slider recipe is one you will want to make again and again! Easy for a fun dinner night or a party!
How to make hamburger sliders:
- Separate the ground beef into ten equal portions, roll into balls.
- Slightly flatten then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Heat pan with a little oil and then lay hamburgers in the pan, flip, smash, cook, then flip.
- Using Hawaiian Sweet Rolls or Hawaiian Slider Buns, top your burger with any and all toppings!
Can you make hamburger sliders in the oven?
I’ve seen a food video going around where you just mash the ground beef into the bottom of a 9x13 pan and bake it at 350°F for 20 minutes. You can try that and then cut the hamburger into squares. However, I would want to do only 1lb of ground beef at a time so you can get enough sliders, otherwise the hamburger patties would be really thick.
Although I love a good Baked Burger (Hello Apple Chutney Bacon Burger!!!) I really do love these sliders pan cooked.
Normally I use Hawaiian Rolls for sliders but when I went the local grocery store I found mini Hawaiian slider buns and they were perfect! Don't worry though Hawaiian Rolls will work great too!
How to prevent your sliders from becoming overcooked hockey pucks?
I recommend the smash version for cooking sliders (and really any stove top burger!) Use a large flat spatula and a wooden spoon (or soup can!) to press down on the patty as it's cooking. Cook the slider for 30 seconds-1 minute on each side or until they become golden brown.
How do you like your sliders?
Do I need to season the ground beef more?
When it comes to burgers I like to keep it simple and let the burger and the toppings do all the work. You don't need to season burger with a ton of seasoning- salt and little pepper work just fine.
What is the best fat % for burgers?
I like to buy hamburger with 80% lean 20% fat. Tastes delicious!
Slider topping ideas:
- Add green chile or jalapenos for a spicy southwest version
- Sweet potato strings for a fun twist
- Spicy mayo or garlic aioli? YUM!
- Bacon perfectly cooked in the oven- yes please!
- Sautéed onions- always!
- Or add chips for a good crunch!
These hamburger sliders are one of my favorite meals to make for friends and family and they always disappear fast! Serve this up with a side of my homemade french fries, pepperoni pasta salad, or my cucumber avocado salad! Make some lemonade or a non-alcoholic Mint Julep to have with this and that my friends is what I call a delicious meal!
- 1 lb ground hamburger
For the sliders
- Hawaiian rolls or Hawaiian Slider Buns
- Cheese optional
- Bacon optional
- Lettuce optional
- Tomato optional
- Onion optional
- 2 tbs vegetable oil for cooking
- Divide ground beef into 10 even portions. Roll into balls.
- Slightly flatten each pattie and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Heat vegetable oil in large skillet/fry pan over medium high heat. This oil will keep the first patties from sticking too much; the additional patties won’t need it because of the grease from the cooking hamburgers. You want the oil to just barely start smoking.
- Place a slider* in the pan, cook for ~10 seconds, flip, then smash flat with a large spatula. Use something like a wooden spoon or a soup can to really smash the slider flat.* Let it cook for 30-1 minute (you want it golden brown), flip* and cook another ~30 seconds. Repeat with the remaining sliders.
- Slice the Hawaiian rolls in half if using, add your burger, cheese, bacon, and any other toppings you want!
