Philly Cheese Ground Beef Sliders

Siders - Finished/Featured

I always have trouble coming up with creative ways to cook ground beef. These sliders are a perfect and tasty way to feed my picky husband. Pair it with chips or homemade potato wedges and you have yourself a meal the entire family will enjoy. 

Onions, Beef and Cheese, oh my!

With sliders, it’s all about the meat. At least that is what I think so. How it’s cooked, the seasoning, and what you put on top. The meat holds all the flavor and juiciness. The biggest component to include: onions! Lots and lots of onions! They are Philly Cheese Steak inspired after all! 

Julienne the onions and sauté until they are fragrant and golden. Toss in some jalapeños for extra spice. I always add some sort of kick to my recipes, must be the hispanic in me 🙂 But if you are trying to feed a ton of little ones, omit the jalapeño and red chili flake!

Add in the meat, seasoned with salt, black pepper and red chili flake, and cook until no longer pink and it mixes well with all the veggies. Flavor magic is happening! 

Don’t forget to drain your meat, it will make all the difference! Mmm… my mouth is watering already.

Artesano Style Buns Hun

Bread is my weakness, along with every other woman in the world. It completes us, but it is also the enemy of pants. Every delicious recipe comes with a price. Choose the rolls of your choice. We happened to love Artesano Bread Rolls. 

You will want to make sure the rolls all stay intact and slice the entire slab in half lengthwise, giving it a top and bottom. Place them into a baking dish. If they detach, it’s okay, just put them close together inside the casserole dish so they appear in tact. I removed a row of 3 rolls so it could fit my 9 inch square Rachael Ray baking pan (affiliate).

Layer Time (dun nun nu nun)

Time to layer on the goodies. Evenly spread the entire meat mixture over the bottom part of the rolls. Top with pepper jack cheese. Shredded or slices, whichever you have works. You just want to make sure it is fully covered, you want these sliders to be CHEESY, I mean, cheeeeesy. I love pepper jack cheese because, you guessed it, the jalapeño pieces, but feel free to use your preference in cheese. Whether it be Monterey jack, mozzarella, or white cheddar, use what will make your belly happy! Place the top part of the bread slab to close the sliders. 

Sliders - with meat

Melt a little butter and add in some fresh chopped parsley. Brush over the top of the bread rolls. Bake until the cheese is gooey and melted, and the tops are golden.

Cheesy, gooey, spicy sliders are ready!! Chow down while they are still warm and the cheese makes a mess. Isn’t that the best? Enjoy! Nom nom nom!

Ingredients

  • 9 Bread Rolls still attached *
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil extra virgin
  • 1.5 lbs White Onion julienne
  • 1 oz Jalapeno small diced
  • 1 lb Ground Beef 80/20
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/8 tsp Red Chili Flakes
  • 4 oz Pepper Jack Cheese sliced or shredded *
  • 1 tbsp Butter melted
  • 1/2 bunch Parsley, Fresh fine chopped (stems removed)

Instructions

  • Slice the entire bread roll loaf in half lengthwise, giving it a top and bottom piece. Set aside. I only used 9 rolls (I removed a row of 3) so it could fit my 9" square loaf pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 350F. 
  • Heat the oil in a saute pan over medium heat. 
  • Add the onions and saute until fragrant and golden. 
  • Add the jalapeño and saute until fragrant. 
  • Add beef, salt, black pepper and red chili flake. Sauté until the meat is no longer pink and it is mixed well with the onion and jalapeño. Remove from heat. 
  • Layer the meat on the bottom piece of bread. Top with the pepper jack cheese. Make sure the meat is fully covered with the cheese. Top with the top half of the bread. 
  • Melt the butter and mix in the fresh parsley. Brush over the top part of the buns. 
  • Bake until the cheese melts and the tops are golden, about 5-10 minutes. Allow to cool slightly. Don't let it cool too much that the cheese begins to harden. You want the cheese to be gooey and melty. Enjoy!!

Notes

  • Use rolls of choice. I used a 9 inch square baking pan that held 9 attached rolls.
  • Use cheese of preference, sliced or shredded. I happened to have shredded at the time, either works. It will be melted. Just make sure you add lots of cheese! 
  • If you want more spice - add more jalapeño and/or red chili flake.
  • If you are feeding little ones, omit the jalapeño and red chili flake, and use mozzarella cheese. TRUST ME, it will STILL be delicious!
