We LOVE these Easy French Dip Sliders because they’re suitable for a quick dinner or to pack for lunch. At our house, we triple the batch because we devour them in record time! Soft rolls with a savory sauce, melted cheese, tender beef, and caramelized onions. Can you blame us? Try them with my homemade Hawaiian Rolls!

What is a Slider?

A slider sandwich is basically a mini version of larger sandwiches. They are often baked on dinner rolls and made 12 at a time. If you are looking for a sandwich that can feed a crowd but is easy to assemble, the slider is the sandwich for you!

They are quite simple to put together! Grab your bread and place in a prepared pan. Layer on the cheese, meat, and onion. Place top layer of buns on top. Next is the best part… drizzle that glorious French Dip sauce!

  1. Au Juis was just too much. I stirred ed and stirred but the gravy mix was grainy and sat on top of the bread. First thing on iambaker I haven’t liked.

  2. Why does it call for 10 tablespoons unsalted butter divided and then later 8 more tablespoons of unsalted butter it says melt 2 tablespoons for onions then 8 tablespoons for the topping….what are the other 8 tablespoons of butter for?

  3. Delicious inside flavor. Horribly salty sauce!!! We literally had to scrap off the topping off the rolls to eat these. I would make again with 1/2 of the au jus packet and only lightly brush the tops. Otherwise good flavor inside

  4. Made this without the sesame seeds! Husband and children went nuts! Amazing and easy recipe! Can’t wait to make it again!

  5. if u have not tried this yet dont use all the gravy au juice mix maybe just a little bit of it we just made it tonight followed the directions exactly and it was way to salty because of the au juice gravy mix u could also leave the au juice out and make it or make the au juice by it self to dip them in would be good also

  6. We make something similar to this but we prepare, pour on the sauce, cover and refrigerate over night before baking. The sliders absorb much of the sauce this way.

    1. It’s not. I just made these tonight and they were perfect! I was still able to pull them apart as sliders and you could easily eat them by hand.

  7. The recipe calls for a 12 pack of Hawaiian rolls yet the video shows a 24 pack…. Which is correct? I noticed a 12-pack is not fill out a 9 by 13 pan.

  8. These would be great wrapped in foil to throw on grill! After the coals are slower from cooking meats etc.

  9. Do you use the Au Jus gravy mix dry? If you follow directions on the package, it would be too much liquid.
