Foodie for a Year \\ August

Time for another edition of Foodie for a Year and this month's theme is to share a quick and easy weeknight meal - pretty perfect since this time of year means back-to-school and back to the grind for many of us.  I am more excited about this theme than any other because seriously, ain't no one got time to prepare a 2+-hour meal!

I'm sharing a quick and easy "recipe" that I swear anyone can make!  It's become a staple in our house since first hearing about it from a neighbor last winter (thanks, Ali!) and I not only love that it's quick and easy, but it requires minimal groceries.

Easy Oven-Baked Sliders

What You Need:
1 pound of ground beef (you could probably use ground turkey for a healthier alternative)
1 package of King's Hawaiian rolls
Optional: hamburger seasoning(s) of your choice, cheese, condiment(s) of your choice

What You Do:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Season hamburger (if you wish) and press down/flatten in a 9x13 baking dish.
3. Bake for approximately 25 minutes.

4. Drain excess grease and add cheese (if desired).  Bake ~5 minutes more or until cheese is melted.

5. Cut into 12 sliders and serve on Hawaiian rolls topped with desired condiment(s).

What I love about this recipe is that you can make it ten times and always create a new version.  We like to top ours with crispy onions and some sweet/spicy relish, but since these are burgers, the possibilities are endless!

Now it's your turn!  Please share a quick and easy weeknight staple from your house!  I look forward to seeing (ahem, stealing) your recipes!!  And don't forget about October's link-up!  We'll be sharing another favorite of mine, slow-cooker meals!


  1. Yum! Those sliders sound so good and easy. That's a huge thing for me. Gotta be easy. :)

  2. This looks and sounds delicious! Mason is obsessed with those King’s Hawaiian rolls! He will eat them by themselves sometimes and calls them “sweet bread”! ha. I think the crispy onions and sweet/spicy relish would make the perfect toppings! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Those look so easy and delicious and I never would have thought of that! Genius!

  4. These sound so good! Square patties reminds me of Wendy's, my favorite growing up!

  5. oh this looks super simple and so yum! I'd make turkey but the same easiness!

  6. You ready for a good laugh: I've never made a burger because I'm totally clueless when it comes to frying anything. This is the perfect solution to that! I'm going to make this next week. THANK YOU for the new dinner idea!

  7. ha, how clever is that! And, Hawaiian rolls are pretty much the best ever.

  8. Yep, this is totally my kind of dish, and it would be perfect for game day!!

  9. I LOVE Hawaiian rolls so any excuse to use them is right up my alley. Plus, I love sliders! I'm so making this!

  10. Why have I never thought to made this before?! What a perfect meal for a week night [or any night]. I don't do the grill, so if I want burgers I have to wait for a night when the hubby is home. But I think I'll try this method next time. With those rolls - I'm sure they won't go wrong. Hopefully :)
