Substitutions and Additions:

  • Rolls – We love the flavor of Hawaiian Rolls, but you can use any type of rolls that you prefer.
  • Cheese – We love the way that provolone cheese melts and cheese, but you can use any type of cheese.
  • Seasoning – The butter sauce can be seasoned with other types of seasoning. Season with garlic powder and onion powder.
  • Deli Roast Beef – We make this recipe with deli sliced roast beef, but you can use leftover shredded roast beef.

Step by Step Instructions: 

Cooking the sliced onions in a skillet

Step 1 – Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add in the sliced onions and sauté for 10-15 minutes until the onions are soft and slightly browned.  Season with salt and pepper and remove from the heat.  

Topping the buns with slice provolone cheese

Step 2 – Slice the buns in half lengthwise with a serrated knife to make sandwiches. Remove top and set aside. Place the bottom half of the rolls into the prepared baking dish. Top with half of the sliced cheese.  

Topping the bottom buns with roast beef

Step 3 – Layer the roast beef on top of the cheese.

Step 4 – Then layer the caramelized onions on top.

Step 5 – Top with the remaining cheese slices.

Step 6 – Place the tops of the rolls onto the sandwiches. Stir together the melted butter and dried onion soup mix.  Brush this butter mixture on top of the rolls. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes.  Uncover and cook for 5 more minutes to brown the top of the rolls slightly.

Expert Tips:

  • Cooking Onions – Cook the onions for about 15-20 minutes in a skillet or small saucepan over medium heat. You will cook the onions until they are tender.
  • Layering Ingredients – Layer the roast beef, cooked onions, and cheese on the rolls. Make sure to completely cover the bottom rolls with the roast beef for the best flavor.
  • Baking Sliders – Cook the sliders covered for about 25 minutes. This allows the cheese to melt without burning the tops of the rolls. Then uncover to allow the roll to cook with a crispy texture.
Dipping the sliders in the au jus sauce

What to Serve with Sliders:

We love to serve the rolls topped with fresh parsley and the au jus sauce for dipping. We normally serve these melty provolone sliders as an appetizer, but you can easily make as a weeknight meal.

Add one of these side dishes to complete your meal.
