Kitchen Sink Sliders

I’m not a huge football fan and neither am I a tailgating person or football party food maker. We never did that in our house. But since Saturday was a special for my Dad I decided to make some sandwiches for him and the family. After looking around at several different recipes I decided I wanted to make something small yet with flavors that I knew the family would enjoy. We’re a garlic and cream cheese group 🙂 Here’s what I came up with…and yes, you may want to eat these over the kitchen sink or keep your elbows up, they are juicy! Don’t let the list of ingredients fool you, these are uber easy to put together!!

Kitchen Sink Sliders

1 package (12 rolls) Hawaiian bread rolls

12 slices turkey pastrami

12 slices provolone cheese

1 medium onion, thinly sliced or chopped

2 medium green bell peppers, thinly sliced or chopped

1–8 ounce brick cream cheese, softened

1/2 Tblsp dried minced onion

2 tsp garlic powder

1 Tblsp dried chives

1 pinch of salt

Topping:

1/4 cup parmesan cheese

1/2 stick butter, melted

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp dried minced onion

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice or chop onion and peppers, saute in butter with a little salt and pepper if desired. Cook till fork tender. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a small bowl combine cream cheese, dried minced onion, garlic powder, dried chives, and salt. Set aside.

Cut up the rolls, placing the bottoms into a 9×13 inch pan. Fold each slice of turkey pastrami and place onto each bottom bread half, top with slice of cheese, onions and peppers. For each top half of the bread rolls: spread a generous amount of the cream cheese spread and return the tops to complete the sandwiches.

After melting the butter, stir in parmesan cheese, garlic powder and dried minced onion. Brush on top of each sandwich and pour remaining over the tops. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil for the remaining 3 minutes of baking time and remove. Let cool for a couple of minutes and dish up.

Yields: 12 sliders

Totally digging that cream cheese top and buttery peppers and onions!

The bottoms of each roll had a wonderful crispness to them, adding an amazing contrast to the soft chewy top half.These were a major hit and a great addition to the FSU/Duke game. Coupled it with chips n dip, and if you have a sweet tooth…finish it off with homemade brownies! These are definitely going on our Christmas Eve menu 😀 Feel free to use any meat and cheese you prefer, leave off the veggies if your kiddos don’t like them. It’s a versatile sandwich recipe and there won’t be any leftovers! Enjoy!!

  1. These are the absolute best sliders I’ve ever eaten! The bread is soft, the cheese gently melted, the filling soft and gooey, the meat tender. The onions and peppers add just the right amount of umph and the butter/parmesan topping made me go mmmmm….. This recipe is a real keeper!
