Ingredients:

Sliders:

  • 1 pound ground chuck beef
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 (12-ounce) package Hawaiian Sweet Dinner Rolls (like King’s Hawaiian)
  • 1/3 cup Big Mac Sauce (recipe below)
  • 6 slices American cheese (½ ounce each)
  • 2/3 cup drained dill pickle chips, chopped
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped yellow onion (from a small 5-ounce onion)
  • 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter (1 ounce)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce (packed, from a small 1-pound head)

Big Mac Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 ½ tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions:

Sliders:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

  1. Prepare all your ingredients.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Using your hands, press the ground chuck into a thin, even rectangle on the prepared sheet, aiming for an 11-inch x 9-inch size. Season evenly with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

  1. Bake the seasoned beef patty in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part reaches 140°F to 145°F.

  1. Carefully transfer the cooked beef to a cutting board lined with paper towels using two large spatulas. Discard the used foil.
  2. Line the same baking sheet with a fresh piece of foil and lightly coat it with cooking spray.
  3. Using a serrated knife, carefully cut the dinner rolls in half horizontally, keeping the top and bottom halves separate.

  1. Arrange the bottom halves of the rolls, cut-side up, on the prepared baking sheet.
  2. Spread a generous amount of Big Mac Sauce evenly over the bottom halves of the rolls.

  1. Place the cooked beef patty on top of the sauce, followed by a layer of cheese slices, chopped pickles, and chopped onion.

  1. Top everything with the roll top halves. Brush the tops and sides of the rolls with melted butter and sprinkle them with sesame seeds.

  1. Bake the assembled sliders for another 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top buns are golden brown and the cheese is melted.

  1. Carefully remove the top buns, sprinkle the lettuce evenly over the sliders, and then replace the buns.

  1. Cut the assembled sliders into 12 portions and serve them with additional Big Mac Sauce for dipping.

Big Mac Sauce:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all the sauce ingredients until fully combined.
  2. Chill the Big Mac Sauce in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
