I think if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that Hawaiian rolls are a top 10 food. Like I’ve never met a person who doesn’t love Hawaiian rolls.
These Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders are made on those Hawaiian rolls and they’re layered with cheddar cheese and a meat mixture that includes chopped pickles, ketchup, mustard, everything you love about burgers!

How to Make Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders
- Cut rolls. Without separating the rolls, cut them in half horizontally and place the bottoms in a 9×13-inch pan
- Add cheese. Sprinkle half the cheese on top of the bottoms of the rolls
- Cook beef. In a large skillet, cook ground beef and onion until beef is cooked through. Add garlic and cook just until fragrant, about 30 seconds
- Combine everything. Stir in pickles, ketchup, mustard, worcestershire, and salt and pepper
- Assemble. Spoon the meat mixture onto the bottom of the rolls. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon and remaining cheese. Place the roll tops on top
- Make glaze. Make the glaze by melting the butter and then stirring in brown sugar, worcestershire sauce, and dijon mustard. Brush the glaze on top of the rolls
- Top sliders. Sprinkle with sesame seeds
- Bake. Bake at 350F for 15 – 20 minutes until rolls are golden brown.
How Long Are They Good FOr?
These sliders are best the day they are made as the bread will get soggy as they sit but they are fine to eat for up to 3 days. Make sure to store them in an airtight container in the fridge.
Can You Make Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders Ahead?
Don’t try making these ahead because they will end up soggy and not great tasting.
If you need to, you can prep the meat filling the night before and just reheat it before proceeding with the recipe. But that is the only prep I would do for these.
