Cheesy Bacon Roast Beef Sliders - An easy slider recipe full of roast beef, bacon, bbq sauce and two kinds of cheese! These roast beef sliders are the perfect appetizer for game day to feed a crowd, or a simple weeknight dinner the whole family will enjoy!
You guys, before we talk about how to make these sliders (which is impossibly easy by the way) I have to tell you a little story. Because, as you already know, that's what I do around here.
These came to life because I was seriously craving one of those roast beef cheddar sandwiches from Arby's! Man, I used to love those things. Now, whenever I get one, it's just not as good as I remember them being as a kid.
I wanted to recreate something at least a little bit similar at home. Something that I have quality control over though, and I know will have amazing flavor, and fresh deli beef!
Also, it was game day when I had this random craving. So, obviously, I can't make myself a delicious sandwich, and not make them for our guests as well.
That's how these sliders were born. Out of a nostalgic, random, craving for fast food.
They took me all of five minutes to put together. Maybe an extra few minutes to cook up some bacon, but bacon is always worth it.
The process shots or "how to" shots may not be entirely necessary here since this recipe is so easy, but I wanted you all to see how I like to layer all the goodness!
You'll take your dinner rolls: I use Kings Hawaiian, but feel free to use your favorite.
Slice them in half horizontally, it doesn't have to be perfect, mine never are!
Then top with some Colby Jack, a mountain of thin sliced roast beef, shredded mozzarella, crispy bacon, and slather it all with your fave BBQ sauce.
These sliders are a total crowd pleaser. Everyone loved them, and since there weren't that many of us, I think we all went back for seconds.
My kids have now requested them for supper, and I am more than happy to oblige!
