These are the best party sandwich on the planet. Seriously. I created this recipe based on some things I had in the pantry and fridge, and my husband and MIL gobbled them up after church. They wished I had made a double batch!
I made this out of necessity. We had some Hawaiian rolls we needed to use, we just got a whole side of beef from my FIL so I had plenty of beef, and I had a half a block of Velvetta in the fridge, so voila! Instant yummy recipe!
Cheeseburger Sloppy Joe Sliders from Razorback Britt
Ingredients: (makes 8 sandwiches…double or triple as necessary)
-1 pound ground beef
-1 packet onion soup mix
– 4-8 oz. Velvetta, cut into cubes (just depends on how cheesy you want them. I would start with 4 oz and then add if you want it cheesier. Tyler likes it around the 6-8 ounces of cheesiness, but I prefer a little less)
– 1 can diced tomatoes, drained
– 12 sliced pickles (we used dill slices)
-8 Hawaiian sweet rolls (my bakery sells packages of 8)
Brown the ground beef and drain it. Return it to the pan and add the drained tomatoes, onion soup mix, and Velvetta. Allow cheese to melt, then let bubble and thicken for a few minutes until mixture is thick like a spread.

Cut rolls in half and lay them in a greased dish. Plop a heaping spoonful of mixture on each roll. Top each roll with a pickle slice. Top with the top bun. It is perfectly fine for the mixture to drip off the sides, that is why they are “sloppy joes”!
You can make these ahead of time. Just make the filling and refridgerate it. When you are ready to eat just, spread the filling on the bread and bake the assembled sandwiches. Bake them for 20-30 minutes at 250 until brown and warm. If you don’t make ahead, bake them at 300 for 10 minutes until brown.
They come out looking delish like this!
We had them with some dip and veggies and chips. Made for a GREAT lunch! Very cheeseburger-y tasting, so I think they would be great for a crowd! You could also put them on full size buns, I’m sure. Tyler
wants to make the mixture and put it in wraps soon, too. Lots of possibilities!
