Ingredient List

Grab these ingredients and get ready to make some seriously delicious beef and cheddar sliders. Trust me, they’ll be a bit wherever they go and are even better than the real thing! Note: exact measurements are in the recipe card below.

  • Hawaiian Rolls: These sweet, soft rolls will be your slider base. Cut them in half before assembly.
  • Arby’s Sauce: (Homemade or storebought) This tangy, savory sauce adds that signature Arby’s flavor. You can make your own version or grab a bottle at the store.
  • Deli Roast Beef: Thinly sliced roast beef is the main protein here.
  • American Cheese: Melty American cheese adds a classic cheesy element to these beef and cheddar sliders. Feel free to substitute with your favorite cheese. You could also use cheese sauce, which is what Arby’s uses instead of actual cheddar cheese.
  • Melted Butter: Melted butter gets brushed onto the tops of the buns, creating a golden brown crust.
  • Dried Onion Flakes: A touch of onion flavor adds depth without overpowering the other ingredients. The flakes are added to the melted butter mixture.
  • Dash of Poppyseeds: A sprinkle of poppyseeds on top of the beef & cheddar sliders adds extra texture and also some nutty flavor.

How to Make Homemade Beef and Cheddar Sliders

Homemade beef & cheddar sliders that are just as good (if not better) than what you can get from Arby’s! They’re super easy to prepare and cook up in a flash.

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Slice Rolls: Cut the rolls in half so you have a top and bottom piece. Place the bottom half in a baking dish.
  3. Add Sauce: Spread the Arby’s sauce on the bottom half of the slider rolls.
  4. Meat Layer: Add the sliced roast beef on top of the sauce in an even layer.
  5. Cheese Layer: Add the cheese slices on top of the roast beef.
  6. Add Top Bun: Place on the top half of the buns.
  7. Butter Mixture: Add the butter to a small microwavable bowl. Heat until melted then mix in the onion flakes and poppyseeds. Brush the butter mixture over the buns using a basting brush.
  8. Bake: Cover the baking dish with foil then bake for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 5 minutes, or until the beef and cheddar sliders are hot, the cheese is melted, and the tops of the buns are golden.
  9. Enjoy: Cut into individual sliders and serve immediately.

Tips and Variations

These beef and cheese sliders are such a huge hit when entertaining. It’s a family favorite! I’ve added some tips and ideas below that you’ll find helpful when making these sliders.

  • Cheese: Swapping out the cheese is an easy way to make these sliders feel different. I used Kraft singles to recreate the melty cheese on the Arby’s sliders, but any cheese that melts well will work great. Use shredded cheddar cheese if you don’t love processed cheese. Put an extra layer of cheese underneath the meat for extra cheesy sliders if you like!
  • Roast Beef: Layer on that roast beef! That’s how Arby’s does it, so don’t skimp on the meat.
  • Arby’s Sauce: Arby’s now bottles and sells their yummy sauce at most grocery stores. If you don’t have access to buying it then make my homemade recipe! For a punch of flavor, you could also make some horseradish sauce, similar to Arby’s horsey sauce!
  • Dipping Sauce: Serve extra sauce on the side for dipping! My kids love to dip their sliders.
  • Serving Size: When planning how many to make, plan for each person to eat 2-4 of these yummy sliders.

Storing Leftovers

These beef and cheddar sliders are best enjoyed fresh and hot out of the oven. However, if you have leftovers, you can store them and enjoy them later for a quick lunch!

  • In the Refrigerator: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
  • To Reheat: When you’re ready to enjoy your beef & cheddar sliders, reheat in the microwave until warmed through. Alternatively, you can reheat them in the air fryer for 5 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, or in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
