Taking a pack of Hawaiian rolls and creating an easy slider recipe is the new trend all over facebook.

From ham and cheese sliders, to cheeseburger, have you seen them?

Unlike my French Dip recipe here on the blog, these sliders use deli sliced roast beef.

I love the convenience of the deli for dinner…you may remember these Saucy Cheesesteak Hoagies? So good, so easy!

Anyway, I whipped up these crazy delicious sliders, and I can’t wait to make them again. They’re perfect for game day snacks, or serve them as your meal!

And because they are so easy, you can make several pans of them for a crowd too!

Tips and Tricks

  • I used a medium rare sliced roast beef from the deli. Feel free to choose your favorite roast beef for this recipe!
  • French fried onions are totally optional. You can caramelize your own onions (and peppers) if you prefer, but these were delicious (just like you would put on Green Bean Casserole).
  • The remaining au jus is warmed up and used for dunking. It’s a very buttery au jus, which tastes amazing with these french dip sliders!!

French Dip Sliders are the perfect dinner recipe, or serve them as a game day snack or lunch! Easy to assemble, and taste delicious too!


  • 6 Tbsp butter, divided
  • 12 Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • 1 lb deli roast beef, sliced thin
  • 12 slices provolone cheese
  • 1 ½ cups french fried onions
  • 1 packet au jus gravy mix
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp minced onion
  • 1 tsp kosher salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Melt 2 Tbsp of the butter, and spread it over the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish.
  2. Without separating the rolls, slice the package of rolls in half. Place the bottom half of the rolls in the baking dish. Top with slices of the provolone cheese, roast beef, and the french fried onions. Then add the other half of the rolls on top.
  3. In a small bowl, melt the remaining 4 Tbsp of butter in the microwave. Mix in the au jus seasoning mix, water, Worcestershire sauce, sesame seeds, minced onion, and kosher salt. Whisk until well combined.
  4. Pour about ¼-½ cup over the top of the rolls. Spoon out some of the chunky parts of the mixture and spread those over the tops as well. Save the remaining mixture to dip your sandwiches into.
  5. Bake the sliders uncovered for about 15 minutes, until cheese is melted and the tops are browned.
  6. Remove and cut the sliders into 12 portions.
  7. While the sliders are baking, take the remaining au jus mixture and heat in the microwave until warmed. Whisk until combined. The butter will separate as it cools, that's okay!
  8. Serve the sliders warm with warm au jus!

  1. We’ve made these before and they are great for us. My son has to take meds every four hours and he has to eat, not a heavy meal but some thing more substantial than a cookie. I can’t eat big meals so I grab one of these. They were also great the second day, all one of them!! These are fantastic because any meats and cheeses can be used and the sauce is only limited by one’s imagination. King’s Hawaiian now has jalapeno rolls, whole wheat and I think there may be a cheese roll but I haven’t seen them.

  2. It’s true…sliders are the new favorite thing to make!  I have one coming in a few weeks too because I can’t let a fun trend pass me by!  LOL!  Love that you saw these and had to make them right away!  And the dipping juice for serving is awesome!!!
