An easy recipe to double for a larger crowd, these ground beef sliders require no flipping over a hot grill, no utensils, and very little time prepare. Just broil them in the oven for an all-American cookout even on a rainy summer's day.


  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef chuck (85 percent lean)

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 12 Hawaiian sweet rolls, such as King's Hawaiian (1 package)

  • 6 ounces American cheese, thinly sliced

  • Unsalted butter, melted, for brushing

  • Sesame seeds, for sprinkling

  • Sliced iceberg lettuce, cherry tomatoes, and cornichons, for serving

  • Toothpicks or small bamboo skewers, for serving


  1. Preheat broiler with a rack in upper third. Divide beef into twelve 3-inch round patties; place on a rimmed baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Broil until browned, about 8 minutes. Transfer to paper towels.

  2. Switch oven to 350°F. Using a serrated knife, split rolls in half horizontally. Place bottom half on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Layer with half of cheese; top each roll with a burger patty. Layer with remaining cheese; place other half of rolls on top. Brush rolls with melted butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake until cheese is melted and rolls are lightly toasted but still soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Using toothpicks, skewer each slider with a small piece of lettuce and tomato and cornichon slices on top; serve.
