French Dip Sliders - Pinterest Pick #19

I absolutely LOVE a slider! I don't know what it is about little sandwiches but they are the best. I have been pinning different slider ideas left and right, and finally decided to try one. I started with the recipe for French Dip sliders because I had all the ingredients on hand except the Au Jus mix. I picked up that packet while out and about and then gave the recipe a whirl. They came out fantastic!!!I would recommend these for lunch, dinner, a snack, an appetizer, or a party!!! You can find the original pin HERE and the original recipe HERE. I only made half the recipe so I had 3 sliders for dinner and 3 sliders for lunch the next day. The great part of this dish is that they tasted as good the next day, even after being microwaved!

French Dip Sliders

(very easy to double or quadruple this recipe)

  • 1/4 lb thinly sliced deli roast beef
  • 12 slices thinly sliced Provolone cheese
  • 1/2 cup French's onions (these are optional, omit if you don't like onions)
  • 6 slider rolls
  • softened butter (for greasing the pan)
  • 4 tbs butter
  • 1 package McCormick's Au Jus gravy mix
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • salt & pepper
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder

Preheat oven to 350. Grease baking dish with butter.
If your slider rolls are not sliced, slice buns in half and lay bottom buns on bottom of greased pan. Top bottoms with 6 slices of cheese, then the meat, then the French's onions, then the remaining cheese. Cover with top buns. Melt butter in microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir in Worcestershire, sesame seeds, 1 tsp of the au jus mix, salt, pepper, dash of garlic powder, and dash of onion powder.  Brush slider tops with buttery topping. If there are leftovers, just dump it in after you make the rest of the au jus. Don't be concerned if buns look soggy, believe me, they'll crisp right up in the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes. While sliders are baking, prepare rest of au jus mix as package directs, adding any leftover butter topping you might have at the end. Serve sliders with au jus for dipping.
