Cook it Your Damn Self! Cheeseburger Sliders

By: Kelsey Kness

Does this sound familiar, you go to cook a burger but you just can’t seem to get the shape or thickness of your burgers right, so they come out some weird misshapen ball of (semi)cooked meat? Well either way, this is a simple sliders recipe that satisfies and impresses any night of the week. I don’t usually measure with this recipe but I put some measurements on here to give you an idea of what to use.  Enjoy!

Serves: 2-4
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: ~25 min
Total time: ~40 min


1 lb. Ground beef
1/8 c. Bread crumbs
1 tbs. Djon mustard
1 tsp. Spicy brown mustard
1/8 tsp. Salt
1/8 tsp. Pepper
1 tsp. Onion powder
1/4 tsp. Garlic powder

Other stuff:
1 pkg. Hawaiian sweet rolls, cut in half length wise
2 pcs. Sliced cheese
Whatever other toppings you want
I serve with Arby’s frozen fries

1. Preheat your oven to 400º
2. Combine all the ingredients for the patty in a large bowl until mixed well.
3. Spray a 10-inx6-in loaf pan with non-stick spray and move patty mix to, spread out in pan until flat then stab some vent holes in with a fork.
4. Cook for 25 minutes, or until meat reaches 160º
5. Drain out oil (leave meat in pan), add cheese and put back in oven for 5 min, or until cheese is melted.
6. Make your burgers! The easiest way to get the meat perfectly cut for the rolls is to set the whole meat patty on top of the entire bottom half of the rolls, replace the top, then cut along the pre-cut lines. BAM! Perfect size for your bun. Enjoy!
