Loose Meat Sliders

These Loose Meat Sliders are one of my go-to ground beef recipes when I'm looking for an easy meal. Cheeseburger sliders are also a great choice for entertaining and can be used for party appetizers, too.

  • 1 pound lean ground beef 93 or 96%
  • ΒΌ cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon Montreal steak seasoning
  • 12 slider buns
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 12 slices American cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

Optional Toppings

  • Ketchup
  • Mustard
  • Pickle slices
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato slices


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add ground beef, onions & Montreal seasoning. Cook until meat is cooked through, breaking up meat while cooking (use a meat chopper). Drain the grease.
  • While the meat is cooking, cut the slider buns in half horizontally. Set the bun tops aside. Line a 9x13 casserole dish with parchment paper and spritz with non-stick spray. Place bottom buns in the casserole dish, cut side up.
  • Place 6 slices of cheese over the bottom buns. Layer with the ground beef mixture and top with remaining 6 slices of cheese.
  • Spread mayonnaise over the cut side of the top buns and place on top of sliders.
  • Brush melted butter over buns and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until cheese is melted. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.


  • Use a meat chopper to get the fine crumble you see in a Maid Rite sandwich.
  • Use Brioche buns, Hawaiian rolls or slider buns.
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
  • To reheat, wrap sliders in a paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds; continue in 15 second intervals until hot. Use a microwave plate cover if you have one - it keeps the buns nice & soft.
  • Recipe can be doubled.
  • If you don't have Montreal Steak seasoning, you can substitute with 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper and 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt.
