How to Make Ground Beef Sliders in the Oven
Storing and Reheating Information:
Ground Beef Sliders are best stored in the refrigerator, and covered in an airtight container, for up to three days. To reheat them just pop them in the oven for 10 minutes at 375° F. Alternatively, you can heat them in the microwave for 30 seconds or until warmed.
Make Ahead Information:
I recommend making the burger mixture and sriracha aioli up to three days in advance. Then all you have to do is construct the sliders and pop them in the oven!
Try not to construct these anymore than a few hours ahead of time. The slider buns will get soggy from the excess moisture.
3 Tips to Keep Your Slider Buns from Getting Soggy
There is NOTHING worse than soggy, soaked buns, especially when it comes to sliders. Here are three tips to help avoid that:
- Remove as much grease from the ground beef as you can.
- Use the sliced cheese as a moisture barrier. Keeps the beef juicy without making the buns soggy.
- Bake the sliders uncovered.
What to Serve with Ground Beef Sliders:

Fun Variations or Substitutions
TRY OTHER CHEESES- Not a fan of sharp cheddar cheese? Use cheddar-jack, swiss, pepperjack, american, provolone, or a combination of multiple cheese. Just make sure they are softer cheeses that will melt.
ADD TOPPINGS- You have so many delicious options like pickles, bacon, caramelized onions, sliced red onions, pickled jalapenos, tomatoes, onion rings,
SAUCE IT UP- I am obsessed with Sriracha aioli and it is what we use in this recipe. But, you can substitute it for Burger Sauce, ketchup, mustard, Carolina Gold BBQ Sauce, fry sauce, Chipotle Southwest Sauce, garlic sauce, or Apple Butter BBQ Sauce.
BUNS- Try this recipe with King’s Hawaiian rolls, mini pretzel buns, or even brioche sliders.
