Cherry Bomb Sliders

As the slider queen of TikTok I can tell you honestly and with authority that these are the best sliders yet! The taste is out of this world with a touch of spice, savory buttery rolls with deli roast beef, ham, and pepperoni! I used cherry pepper hoagie spread to make the sauce and OMG! Irresistible!

Tips & Tricks:

  • Hoagie Spread: You can’t make these sliders without this product: It is so absolutely delicious mixed with mayo and spread on ANY sandwich!
  • King’s Hawaiian Rolls: or any other dinner rolls that are about 2 inches across. If you use my favorite, King’s Hawaiian Rolls, you’ll need a serrated bread knife to slice them through neatly! Here is an option:
  • Pyrex dish: about 13×9 inches:
  • Mozzarella: I used Polly-O mozzarella cheese and I freshly shred it with a box grater. SO deliciou! However you can get sliced mozzarella at the deli or prepackaged.

Slider Tips:

  • Almost all of my recipes call for a stick of butter, but my sliders are never soggy! Here are some tricks:
    • Alway begin with layering the cheese first. This prevents the bottom buns from any sogginess.
    • When you are finished cooking your sliders use two spatulas to remove them from the baking dish right away. Don’t slice them yet, just remove from the baking dish.
    • Bake your sliders and cover with aluminum foil the first half of the cooking time and uncover the last half.
