Burger Sliders with Secret Sauce

These sliders are super easy to put together and are always a hit! I love that they are "fast food" without having to go to a restaurant. Take them to a party, make them for dinner or serve them on game day. The meat can also be made ahead of time in preparation for your gathering. —April Lee Wiencek, Chicago, Illinois
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min
  • Makes
    12 sliders


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup minced onion, divided
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (17 ounces) dinner rolls
  • 1/2 cup Thousand Island salad dressing, divided
  • 10 slices American cheese
  • 12 sliced dill pickles
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Iceberg lettuce
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted


  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix beef, eggs, 1/2 cup minced onion, garlic powder, salt and pepper just until combined; do not overmix. Place meat mixture on a large, parchment-lined baking sheet; shape into two, 6x8-in. rectangles, each about 1/2-inch thick. Bake until a thermometer reads 160°, 15-20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, without separating rolls, cut rolls in half horizontally. Spread 1/4 cup of dressing evenly over bottom halves of rolls.
  • Blot meat with paper towels to remove excess fat; top meat with cheese and return to oven. Bake until cheese has just melted, 2-3 minutes. Place meat on bottom halves of rolls; spread with remaining 1/4 cup dressing. Layer with pickles, remaining 1/4 cup minced onion and shredded lettuce; replace with top halves of rolls. Brush butter on top of rolls; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
