Why You’ll Love These
A spicy, creamy horseradish sauce layered with thinly sliced roast beef covered with gooey, melty cheese in a hand size toasty bun. Man, nothing wrong with that!
You will love this roast beef sliders recipe because they taste way better than Arby’s roast beef sandwiches, horseradish sauce included!
Perfect game day (Super Bowl) finger food! Easy to make and incredibly delicious.
- Deli Roast Beef – Ask the deli to slice it thin. I highly recommend using good-quality deli meat, not prepackaged stuff. The roast beef is the star of this dish!
- Provolone Cheese – I highly recommend purchasing the cheese from the deli too!
- Slider Buns – Pick your favorite. I’m not particularly fond of the Hawaiian rolls because they tend to be sweet.
How to Make Roast Beef Sliders with Horseradish Sauce
Football season is upon us, and my husband is chomping at the bit for game-day food. Is yours? This manly dish is the way to his heart.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
So simple; just layer all ingredients and bake. Place the buns in your baking dish, and spread half of the prepared horseradish sauce. Lay on half the cheese slices.
As you can see from the photo above, I had to manipulate the provolone cheese slices to fit properly. This is only because I was stuck buying actual slider buns.
The grocery store I was in didn’t have the dinner rolls I prefer to use for sliders, and I wasn’t about to make another stop.
Place the roast beef on the cheese by layering and folding it as needed to pile it nice and high.
Drizzle the remaining horseradish sauce evenly over the beef.
Top with another layer of cheese, then place the slider tops on and bake for 15 minutes.
Remove the foil and bake another 5 to 10 minutes until the cheese is melted.
Slice and serve these roast beef sliders with horseradish sauce to those hungry football fans!
- To keep them warm for a gathering, wrap each individual slider in aluminum foil and place them in a slow cooker set on warm. Guests can just grab a warm slider from the crockpot during the party.
- The slider buns we used here were already separated. If you purchase ones that come in a “slab form” you will need to slice the still-intact rolls horizontally. Removing the tops of the rolls, then place the bottom bun slab in the baking dish and proceed with the recipe.
- You can also bake these on a sheet pan for easy slicing.
- About your buns, get what you like. There are several that work with this. You can use a standard slider bun, or a dinner roll, whichever you prefer. You can also hit the tops of the rolls with some melted butter and poppy seeds.
- You can also use Hawaiian rolls if you like. They are a bit sweeter than we prefer, but my sister goes crazy over them. So, by all means, get what you like.
- You can mix a little onion powder and garlic powder into the melted butter for extra flavor.
- Havarti, Swiss, Muenster, or white cheddar cheese can also be used.
- Not a fan of horseradish? Try spicy brown mustard, dijon mustard, or even honey mustard.
- Try caramelizing onions and spreading them on the sliders.
These are great just by themselves! But you can serve it with chips, fries, or even salad.
You may prep the entire dish (sauce included), wrap the unbaked sliders tightly with plastic wrap, and store them in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours before baking. I recommend removing it from the fridge at least 30 minutes before baking.
If you are taking them to a potluck or party, place a towel in an empty ice chest and put the baking dish on top of the towel. This will keep them warm.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in a 300-degree F oven, covered with aluminum foil for 15 to 20 minutes. Or reheat single servings in the microwave.
Yes, although they are best fresh! Bake the sliders as directed (without the melted butter), let them cool completely, wrap them in plastic wrap and aluminum foil, place them in a freezer-safe bag, and freeze them for up to 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. When ready to serve, brush the tops with melted butter, Cover them with aluminum foil, and reheat them in a 300-degree oven for about 20 minutes.
