Sliders recipe

Once your beef is mixed, press into your 9×13 inch baking dish and bake until cooked through, about 30 minutes.


While the burgers are cooking, sauté some thinly sliced onions.


Add some thinly sliced red bell peppers as well. Cook and stir until they are nice and soft.

Best Hamburger Recipe


Once the beef is cooked through, drain the grease if necessary then top with cheese slices. Place back into the oven until melted 🙂

Baked hamburgers

Cut your burgers into squares that fit your buns then top with your softened onions and peppers. They are sweet and delicious.

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • Two 1 oz packages Fajita Seasoning Mix
  • 5 slices thinly sliced cheese squares
  • 1 large onion thinly sliced
  • 1 large red bell pepper cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 12 small rolls split (We used Hawaiian Sweet Rolls)
  • 12 small lettuce leaves trimmed to fit burgers


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9×13 inch baking dish lightly with non stick cooking spray.
  • Place ground beef and Fajita Seasoning into a large mixing bowl, stirring to combine. Transfer beef to prepared baking sheet and press down evenly into dish. Bake for 30 minutes, or until baked through. Remove and drain grease if necessary. Top with cheese slices and return back to oven for a couple minutes to melt cheese. Remove and cut burgers into appropriate squares to fit your slider rolls.
  • While burgers are baking, heat oil into a large skillet over medium heat. Add sliced onions and red bell peppers, stirring until softened. Takes about 10 minutes, stirring often.
  • Spread mayonnaise onto rolls and layer with a burger, onions and peppers, then lettuce leaf. Close with top roll and use a long toothpick to keep together if desired. Serve warm.

    I love the idea of cooking the burger in the own and THEN cutting them into squares!

    What a great idea for making a bunch of sliders at one time! Definitely an easy weeknight dinner! 🙂

  7. Jessica

    What an amazingly simple idea! I love beef fajitas, and this is the perfect spin on them. Baking in a 9×13 is much less work than firing up the grill, for sure! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  8. Tracy

    What a GREAT idea! I am so doing this better than grease splattering everywhere or heating up the grill! Fabulous:)

    These are the cutest little sliders! I am not really looking forward to the chaos of the school year starting, but these would help!

  10. Naomi

    I agree, it can be so so tricky trying to juggle it all, but these sliders –easy and so good!

    Why have I never thought to make slider patties in a 9×13 and then just cut them out?! I’d avoid the dreaded “the patty is smaller than the bun” syndrome!

  12. Heather @ Shards of Lavender

    My whole family would love these, especially on Hawaiian Sweet Rolls. Thanks for the easy recipe!
