Easy cheeseburger sliders made with ground beef

This Sliders Recipe is Made Easy with Ground Beef!

The best part of this slider recipe, is you don’t have to form individual meat patties! This saves a ton of time, which is why they are so great for parties! I definitely recommend using lean ground beef so there is less fat to drain from the skillet. If you don’t drain this well you will end up with soggy sliders, and that’s not fun. Using ground beef also makes seasoning the meat much easier, because once it’s cooked you can adjust the seasoning to suit your taste!

How To Make Cheeseburger Sliders

How To Make Cheeseburger Sliders

Let me walk you through the assembly process for these Cheeseburger Sliders. The process only takes a few minutes, but there are a few tricks to make these perfect!

  1. Like I said above, use lean ground beef, so there is less fat to drain, and less fat to make your buns soggy.
  2. Mix up the sauce mixture of mayo, ketchup, and mustard. You will add this directly to your cooked meat. It is all the best hamburger toppings together, and mixing it directly with the meat gets you the flavor in every bite!
  3. I like to use King’s Hawaiian slider buns for this recipe, but you can use whatever brand you prefer!
  4. Make sure to line your pan with foil and coat it with nonstick spray! You will cover the pan tightly with foil as well to create a steamed effect, a lot like White Castle Burgers!
  5. Try your best to layer everything evenly on the burgers! I use American Cheese on mine because it melts the best. And of course every burger deserves a pickle slice, but certainly if pickles aren’t your thing, you can leave them off!
  6. Once you place the bun tops on the burgers, brush them lightly with a little melted butter and a sprinkle of sesame seeds!
  7. When you bake these, I recommend placing your baking dish on top of a large cookie sheet in the oven to prevent the bottom buns from getting over cooked and crunchy. It can happen fast, and this trick helps a lot!
  8. Let the burgers sit covered after they are done for a few minutes. This helps make sure all the cheese is melted!

Cheeseburger Sliders are an easy party food that taste like White Castle!

This sliders recipe is the PERFECT party food! They taste just like White Castle burgers but they are simple to make!


  •  1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 24 slider rolls (I used King’s Hawaiian)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, small diced (approximately 1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 (1 ounce) package dry French Onion Soup Mix
  • 1 tablespoon Steak Seasoning (I used Montreal)
  • 10 slices American Cheese
  • 24 pickle slices
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoons sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 11×15 baking dish with foil and coat lightly with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard. Set aside.
  3. Slice the slider rolls in half, and place the bottoms evenly into the prepared pan, setting the tops aside.
  4. In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onions and cook, until soft and golden, stirring frequently. Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook until no pink remains, breaking the meat while cooking.
  5. Drain any excess fat from the skillet. Add in the onion soup mix and the steak seasoning, stirring to combine. Remove the skillet from the heat.
  6. Stir in the mayonnaise mixture and coat the meat evenly.
  7. Spread the meat mixture evenly on top of the slider rolls.
  8. Top with cheese slices, cutting to fit, if necessary. Top each with a pickle slice.
  9. Place the slider roll tops on top, and press down slightly.
  10. Brush the melted butter on top of the sliders, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  11. Cover the pan tightly with foil. Place the pan on a large cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
  12. Remove the pan from the oven and keep covered for 5-10 minutes before uncovering and serving.


Store airtight in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can reheat the sliders in the microwave.

*Note – by placing the baking dish on a cookie sheet if helps the bottoms of the slider buns from getting crunchy, by creating a barrier.

    Anyone tried freezing these yet? I’m making a double batch since they are a huge hit and want to freeze some for lunches next week.

    This recipe was amazing and came out so much better than expected. I made them for a New Year’s Eve party and they were a huge hit everyone loved them! I made them exactly as written and didn’t change a thing. I was nervous about mixing the condiments in with the ground beef because 1/2 cup of mayo seemed like a lot especially since I don’t really like mayo. But I took the chance anyways and I’m glad I did lol (sorry I doubted you). I’m saving this recipe and will be making it again in the future. Definitely a crowd pleaser, thanks for sharing 🙂

      You can use Montreal Steak Seasoning and dehydrated Onions if you have them. To get the exact flavor the onion packet is what I recommend though 🙂

  5. Florizelle

    Ive made cheese burger sliders before, but i used ground turkey. After seeing this recipe i will definitely add this to my menu of recipes.

      I bought a big pack of Hawaiian rolls from Costco for Christmas. I ended up making No knead bread, so guess what we’re having for dinner tomorrow? Love the idea of the condiments added to the meat mixture! Thank you! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    This recipe sounds delicious and great for my patio party coming up. Would I be able to make ahead and heat up on grill when guests arrive?

  7. Brittany

  8. Heather

    Great recipe! We just nixed the onion soup mix for onion powder and some mustard powder, and used cheddar cheese instead of American. Loved the flavor of the condiments mixed in. My teen and husband were huge fans!

  9. Mikana Bales

    Thank you for this easy but SUPER awesome recipe. Made this and literally everything was gone! I didn’t have steak seasoning or onion soup mix., instead I did onion powder, salt and pepper, still tasted AMAZING! Next time I’ll make sure to have the other ingredients on hand! Adding it to my book of recipes! Thanks!
