The kick off to Gamecocks football season means game day food! We first made these sliders for Elise's birthday party last year and I could not believe how easy the process was...I am not a burger flipper and this method totally eliminates the need for that, plus you make them in the oven, so no need to slave over a hot grill. You can also make quite a few in the oven at one time, if you are having a big crowd and they reheat perfectly, as well.
Oven Baked Cheeseburger Sliders (adapted from here)
1 1/2lbs. lean ground beef (I used 93%)
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 tsp. seasoning blend of your choice (we use this one on EVERYTHING!)
1-2 tbsp. dried minced onion
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
6 cheese slices
12 ct. King's Hawaiian rolls
Mix your beef, bread crumbs, onion, seasoning and Worcestershire sauce together well.
Pat into a 9x13 pan, in an even layer.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. The meat will shrink a good bit, don't panic!
Remove from oven, drain grease from pan. Top with cheese and bake for an additional 2 minutes.
Cut into 12 even sized patties and place on rolls.
Add toppings of your choice and enjoy!
P.S. The Gamecock win made these go down extra easy!
