The “unofficial” start of summer is here!  This time if year is filled with family gatherings and the need to feed a crowd.  Burgers are always a summertime favorite, and sliders can be even more fun.  This recipe is an easy way to make a big batch of sliders for a group.

Keep reading for the recipe…

Check out these easy step-by-step instructions for making a batch of sliders in the oven!

1)  Start with a 9 x 13 pan, your favorite mini buns (I love King’s Hawaiian!), and your favorite cheese (I’ll take a slice of good ‘ol Kraft American).

2)  Combine ground sirloin, breadcrumbs, onion, and salt.  Press into the 9 x 13 pan.

3)  Bake in a 400 degree oven.  (Meat will shrink in from the sides.)  Top with cheese.

4)  Melt cheese and cut into squares.

5)  Add all your favorite toppings and enjoy with friends!

It’s easy to prepare the meat patties in advance and press them into the 9 x 13 pan until you are ready to bake and serve.  Depending on the size of your crowd, you could even have several pans ready to go!

Easy Oven-Baked Cheeseburger Sliders

2 pounds, 93% lean ground sirloin

1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs

3/4 cup chopped onions

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 package (12-count) Kings Hawaiian sweet dinner rolls (or slider buns)

6 slices cheddar or American cheese

Heat oven to 400 degrees.   In a bowl, combine beef, bread crumbs, onion, and salt.  Gently press mixture into a 9-by-13-inch pan so that it makes one large patty of even thickness.  Use the tines of a fork to poke holes throughout the meat.  Bake for 30 minutes.  As it bakes, the meat will shrink away from the sides and liquid will accumulate around the edges of pan.  When fully cooked, remove the pan from oven (keep oven turned on) and carefully drain off the liquid.

Top the meat with an even layer of sliced cheese; return pan to oven for about 2 minutes or until the cheese melts.  Remove from the oven and allow to rest for a few minutes.  Cut into 2-inch squares (or the size of the buns used), making 12 mini- hamburgers.  Serve with dill pickle slices and ketchup.  Serves 6 at 2 sliders each.
