For Making The Sliders

  • 12 rolls
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 pound deli roast beef
  • 6 whole pineapple rings cut in half
  • 12 slices cheddar cheese

Butter for the Tops

  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire
  • 1/2 tsp parsley flakes optional
  • 1/2 tsp sesame seeds


  • Let rolls rise according to package directions.
  • Bake according to package directions.
  • Let cool just until you can handle the rolls.
  • Cut tops off of the rolls. Don’t worry about breaking the rolls apart. It’s easier to cut them in half if you leave them all stuck together in one piece.
  • Leave the bottoms of rolls on the baking sheet or in the baking pan.
  • Spread a prepared barbecue sauce over bottoms of rolls.
  • Add a thick layer of deli sliced roast beef to bottoms of rolls.
  • Layer a half slice of pineapple over roast beef. You could use pineapple tidbits if you wanted.
  • Set one slice of cheese over the toppings on each roll.
  • Flip the tops of the rolls over onto the sliders.
  • Mix butter, garlic powder, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce, and sesame seeds together. Generously brush tops of rolls with butter mixture.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until sliders are golden brown and cheese is melted.


  1. It's easy to substitute differnet kinds of cheese for this recipe. Cheddar, mozzarella, provolone, pepper jack, Colby jack, and Swiss are all great options!
  2. Pineapple gives the sandwiches a fun Hawaiian flare. If you're not into that, or if your kids aren't in to it, you can obviously leave it off!
  3. If the tops of the rolls are getting too brown cover them with foil and continue baking until the cheese is melted.
