Roast Beef Sliders are one of my favorite easy slider recipes with Hawaiian rolls, deli roast beef, balsamic onions, and white cheddar cheese. They are a great party appetizer or snack or make them for a fun dinner with French fries or potato chips on the side.

I love easy slider recipes, and this roast beef sliders recipe is a really simple one. A few ingredients, a few minutes in the oven, and you get a batch of hot and cheesy sliders that are great for parties or easy dinners.

I combine sliced roast beef with red onions cooked with balsamic vinegar for this recipe. The vinegar adds a nice tang that complements the melted cheese and roast beef.

I use good-quality deli roast beef for this recipe, but I love to use the leftovers to make these sandwiches when we make roast beef.

Hawaiian rolls make the best sliders, and I love the flavor. It’s a little sweet, which goes great with the balsamic and savory beef, and they’re nice and soft. These roast beef sliders are so delicious warm from the oven.

Pair these Hawaiian roll sliders with other appetizers for a party or game day. We also make them for dinner with fries, chips, or a simple green salad on the side. I think you’ll really enjoy them!

  • Cooking spray
  • Thinly sliced red onion
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Hawaiian rolls – slice each roll in half through the center, so you have a top bun and bottom bun.
  • Sliced deli roast beef
  • Grated white cheddar cheese
  • Melted butter

How to Make Roast Beef Sliders

Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Heat the pan over medium heat, and then add the sliced onions. Cook them, stirring often, until they start to soften.

Add the balsamic vinegar to the pan, stir, and cook it with the onions for a couple of minutes. Take the skillet off the heat.

Place the bottom bun pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Top each bun with roast beef. You may need to fold it, so it fits on the bun. Top the roast beef with the onions and grated cheese.

Brush melted butter on each top bun and place them on top of each slider.

Bake the roast beef sliders for 15 to 18 minutes at 375°F or until they are hot and the cheese is melted.

Recipe Tips

If you want the sliders to hold together better, stick a toothpick in each one. This makes it easy to serve them for parties, too.

I like a lot of balsamic vinegar, but if you want to cut back on that flavor, reduce the amount of vinegar by half.

Instead of red onions, you can use white or yellow onions.

Any shredded cheese will work for this recipe. We like the strong flavor from white cheddar, but pepper jack, gouda, gruyere, provolone, or other cheddar cheese work great, too.
