Oven Baked Sliders

Oven Baked Sliders


Here in the south we have a fast food restaurant called Krystal’s.  They are very similar to the popular White Castle.  We duplicated these little burgers at home.  They are the perfect finger food for a party or just a movie night at home.

Mix the ground beef with the onion soup mix.  Spread it as thin or thick as you prefer. We chose to make ours a little thicker than Krystal’s. Spread the diced onions evenly on top of the meat. Bake for about 15 minutes. (depending on the thickness)

Remove from the oven and place cheese slices on top.  Put back in for 3 – 5 minutes to melt the cheese.

Slice the dinner rolls with a serrated knife and place on top of the cheese. Bake another 3 – 5 minutes.

It works best to slice with a large pizza cutter. Use a spatula to remove from the pan and place on bottom bun. Serve.

    These look delicious! I’ve planned on making these for the Superbowl. I do have a question though. Do they still taste good if they’re kept warm in a sterno? I’m a little worried about them drying out or the bread getting soggy. I figure they will be okay, because krystals warm up well. I just wanted to make sure.

      Hi, Terrance! I can’t really answer to how they will hold up in a Sterno. You could try placing a layer of paper towels to reduce condensation. I don’t think they will dry out. One recipe usually makes enough for us to have leftovers and they reheat beautifully. Thank you for coming by! 🙂

    If I want to reduce this to 1 lb. Of meat, do I need to reduce the bake time?

    1. Reply

      Yes, Jill I would reduce the baking time maybe to 10 minutes and just check the doneness. But make sure the onions are soft.

    OMG! Amazeballs!!! Made these for High School Baseball Team Dinner Friday night after practice. Boys devoured them!! I made 72 Sliders with 12lbs ground beef and we could’ve used about 2 dozen more, boy oh boy can those boys eat!! I omitted finely chopped onions, not knowing if boys would like the onions, but still used the onion soup mix for flavoring and added some salt. I also used Brioche Slider buns. This was the most straight forward recipe I found online. Thanks a million!!
