Craving some slider deliciousness, but don’t feel like driving to a restaurant or suffering the tedium of assembling them yourself? This is your answer! Because the beef or turkey is cooked crumbled, you don’t have the work of flipping dozens of little burgers; but finishing the sliders off in the oven is what elevates this recipe to magical. Maybe magical is a bit of an exaggeration, but it is smart time management to make these up to a day ahead of time and keep them in the fridge until you are ready to pop them in the oven. Perfect for a busy weeknight or especially a party.
A tip for good presentation is searing the meat. Basically, heat your pan to medium high heat and place your meat in it as a whole block. Sprinkle it with the seasonings.
When it is nicely seared, flip it over in one piece to sear the other side.
Crumble it to finish cooking, adding your onions and garlic.
One last tip: easiest assembly comes from leaving the rolls “stuck” together in a sheet. The first time I made this, I used just twelve rolls, but they really didn’t fill up a 9×13 pan and left me trying to balance the meat to the edge. Now I buy an extra bag of rolls and fill in the gaps. There is more than enough meat for this.
No need to put yourself through this balancing act.
