Introduction: Mini-style Slider Burgers

A how-to on making your own sliders at home.

Step 1: Gather Ingredients

Either purchase or gather the following ingredients:

2 pounds ground beef

1 (1.25 ounce) envelope onion soup mix

1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 cups shredded cheese

24 dinner rolls

Optional ingredients:

1/2 cup of sliced pickles


head of lettuce






barbecue sauce

Step 2: Preheat Oven

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.

Step 3: Prep Ground Beef

To begin with, wash your hands! Mix together the ground beef and onion soup mix in a large skillet; cook and stir over medium-high heat until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Remove from heat. Stir the mayonnaise and Cheddar cheese into the ground beef mixture

Step 4: Prep Dinner Rolls

Lay the bottoms of the dinner rolls on the prepared baking sheet. Spread the cheese and beef mixture on the bottom half of each roll. Replace the tops. Cover with another sheet of aluminum foil sprayed with cooking spray.

Step 5: Bake

Bake in the preheated oven until the burgers are heated through and cheese melts, should take about 30 minutes.

Step 6: Topping Prep (optional)

The next few steps cover the simple prep of the various toppings for your sliders. Keep in mind these are all optional. All steps should be completed while sliders are baking. Again, make sure to wash hands thoroughly.

Step 7: Tomatoes

Usually people prefer sliced tomatoes for their burgers, so that will be the method I cover.

Gather your tomatoes, a serrated knife, and a cutting board

Wash your tomatoes thoroughly

Take the knife and cut the stem out

Turn the tomato on its side and cut a thin slice from the bottom making sure not to push the knife through, let the blade do the work

No continue to make slices about 1/4 inch in size

Repeat this process until you have enough slices

Step 8: Onions

Like tomatoes, onions can be cut in a variety of ways. I'm going to be using the pole-to-pole slices.

Peel the onion

Trim both ends of the onion

Make a notch at the top

Slice along the lines of the onion using radial cuts, not straight up and down cuts

Repeat process until satisfied with amount of onions

Step 9: Lettuce

Clean the lettuce

Remove the dark outer leaves

Break the core and pull it out

Cut the head of lettuce in half

Take one half and cut from end to end, each cut should be about 1/2 inch

Turn that half and cut again

Repeat previous 2 steps on second half of lettuce

Step 10: Avocado

The avocado is going to be rather simple.

Using a sharp knife, slice through the avocado lengthwise until you feel the knife hit the pit

Then rotate the avocado, keeping the knife steady, to make a cut all around the pit.

Twist the two halves apart

Take a spoon and scoop the contents into a bowl

Repeat as necessary

Step 11: Bacon

The bacon is rather self explanatory. You can fry it on stove top, in the oven, or get microwaveable bacon. Completely your preference. I personally like stove top bacon.

Step 12: Remove Sliders From Oven

At this point your sliders should be done baking in the oven. You can now remove them and let them cool. You are then free to put your toppings on them and eat them. Enjoy!
