Expert Tips 

  • I find using lower-fat meat will help cut down on grease after baking.
  • However, if you have fatty meat, you can drain off the excess meat before slicing it into burgers.
  • Add your favorite burger toppings, such as burger sauce or a pickle slice,  to these Hawaiian roll cheeseburger sliders when you build them.
  • You can bake the bread in a separate baking dish if you are a fan of toasted bread for your baked cheeseburger sliders.

Storing Tips 

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. 

You can freeze your baked cheeseburger sliders for up to three months, ready for the next time. Just don’t add toppings to them.

What To Serve With Cheeseburger Sliders

Cheeseburger sliders pair well with a variety of sides. A classic choice would be crispy, golden french fries or sweet potato fries for a healthier twist. Coleslaw, with its creamy, tangy taste, also complements the rich flavors of the sliders. For a lighter option, consider a fresh garden salad or some grilled vegetables

If you’re in the mood for something more indulgent, macaroni and cheese or onion rings would be a perfect match. Don’t forget to serve some cool, refreshing beverages like iced tea, lemonade, or your favorite beer to wash it all down. And lastly, for an added crunch, a handful of potato chips never go amiss.

Recipe FAQs

Can I use a different type of meat for these sliders?  

Yes, you can substitute ground beef with other ground meat such as turkey, chicken, or even a vegetarian patty if you prefer.

I don’t have Hawaiian rolls. Can I use regular burger buns instead?  

Absolutely. Any soft bun will work for this recipe. However, Hawaiian rolls add a touch of sweetness that pairs well with the savory meat.

Can I prepare these sliders in advance?  

Yes, you can assemble the sliders and refrigerate them before you are ready to bake. Make sure to add the cheese before baking to prevent it from getting soggy.

Can I add other fillings to my sliders?  

Yes, feel free to get creative! Some good additions could be pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, or even a slice of avocado to add some creaminess.

How can I reheat my leftover sliders?  

The best way to reheat your sliders is in the oven at 350℉  degrees for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
