Ingredients

  • 2 pkgs. Hawaiian sweet rolls, 12 oz. each
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided use
  • 1 1/2 lbs. Dale Family Farms ground beef
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 14 oz. can diced tomatoes and green chilies, drained
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tbs. spicy brown mustard, I love to use Sarah Janes Jalapeno Mustard, made in Kansas
  • 1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • Sliced hamburger dill pickles, Holmes-Made Spicy Garlic Dill Pickles, made in Kansas are delish
  • 1 lb. Dale Family Farms smoked bacon, cooked and chopped

Glaze

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbs. Dijon or spicy brown mustard
  • 1-2 Tbs. toasted sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Leaving the packages of rolls intact, cut each of horizontally in half, then arrange each sheet of bottom halves across the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 baking dish. (Reserve the top sheets of rolls for later in the recipe.) Sprinkle the rolls with 1 cup shredded cheese.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, cook ground beef with the diced onion until the  beef is fully cooked throughout (no longer pink and 165 degrees F internal temperature) and onions are tender and translucent, crumbling the beef as it cooks. Remove the skillet from the heat and drain all fats from the beef mixture.
  4. Return the skillet to the burner over medium heat and stir in the tomatoes, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper; stir until well combined and heated throughout, 2-3 minutes.
  5. Spoon the prepared beef mixture evenly over the cheese and the rolls in the baking dish, then top the beef mixture with the remaining cup of shredded cheese. Sprinkle the cooked, chopped bacon over the cheese, then top with sliced pickles. Lastly, add the reserved sheets of rolls as the top and final layer of the sliders.
  6. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Drizzle this butter mixture over the sliders, then sprinkle the sliders with sesame seeds.
  7. Bake sliders, uncovered, until golden brown and heated throughout , 23-25 minutes. Slice sliders apart and serve at once!
