How to Make Roast Beef Sliders
Preheat your oven to 350°F.
Cut the slider buns in half, and place the bottom half of the slider buns in a greased casserole dish.
Place a thick layer of roast beef over the bottom buns.
Top beef with a layer of cheddar cheese slices.
Finish layering by topping the cheese with a layer of Whiskey Candied Bacon slices.
Place the top buns on the sliders.
Cover the dish with foil and bake for 10 minutes.
Remove the foil, and brush the slider buns with melted butter . Then sprinkle poppy seeds over the tops of the buns.
Continue baking for another 10 minutes.
- Remove sliders from the oven and serve warm.
These sliders will fly off the plate! The best thing is that you can prep them ahead of time and bake later in the day when the party is about to start.
Just be sure to cook up a couple of extra pieces of candied bacon to snack on while you cook. You’ll thank yourself later.

Dude. The bacon totally made this recipe! My husband ate FOUR! This is my new “go-to” for game days!
AWESOME! I totally agree about the bacon.
Where do I find whiskey candied bacon?
Hi Inell! We make ours at home. This recipe has the how to for the bacon: https://breadboozebacon.com/jack-daniels-bacon-mac-cheese/
Do I cook the bacon first
Hi David. Yes, the bacon is cooked first. The recipe calls for bourbon candied bacon, but you could substitute regular, cooked bacon if you prefer…but the candied bacon really makes these sliders!
Amanda P. says
Hi! Is it best to bake the last 10 minutes with or without the foil?
Without so they get toasty. If you prefer they are a little softer you can keep the foil on.
I am making this for Christmas Brunch! it sounds amazing!! Thank you for the recipe!
Can I use a large aluminum baking pan instead of the casserole dish for larger qtys?
I’m a beginner learning how to cook for my significant other. I wish you would have stated in the recipe to COOK the bacon before placing it in the oven. I was so excited to finally cook something on my own only to feel like an idiot. As delicious as these were, please put that it should be cooked prior for your beginners.
Hi Katie! I’m so sorry there was confusion with the recipe. The bacon ingredient was previously linked to the recipe that explains how to make it and it looks like that link went away when I updated the system I use to display recipes. I’ve updated the slider recipe to have the whiskey candied bacon recipe in the notes so it’s all in one place now. I hope you’ll give these sliders another go. They’re one of my favorites. I really appreciate you bringing this to my attention so I can make this recipe more approachable for everyone.
You don’t need any kind of sauce or dreasing on them? Probably would make them soggy.? Making for a large group this Sunday just making sure I didn’t miss anything.
Hi Rebecca! No extra sauce needed. The melty cheese and little bit of drip for the bacon (and then the butter brushing) are enough. If you want a sauce, I’d serve it on the side and let your guests add it on or dip the sliders.
Martha E says
I think a Jalapeno Mayo on the side would be delish!!!
Thank you I’m so excited to make these
nice recipe!! good share
Hello there! I’m a beginner cook and wanted to know if you need to cook the roast beef before or it just cooks in the oven. I know about the bacon and plan on doing the whiskey candied bacon. Just want to make sure the roast beef won’t come out raw or anything ?
Julie Espy says
Hi Sarah! This recipe uses deli roast beef, so it’s already cooked and safe to eat. It’s the same stuff you’d use for sandwiches, not raw beef for making a roast. (But you could totally go wild and make your own roast beef from scratch and then slice that up for the sliders.)
CAROL NYE says
Can I give this 10 stars??? Holey moley these are so-o-o-o good! It was very difficult to put the bacon on the sliders, after I had tested it!! My better half loved it, too!
Can i brush the top with a honey poppyseed mustard or will that taste weird?
Julie Espy says
Hi Ashley! You could give it a shot. I’m not big into mustard, but if you are, go for it!
