I have run into a problem with my laptop, something to do with the latest Windows Edge which was downloaded automatically while it was in the sleep mode.  Afterwards I couldn’t get on the internet. Trying to find out what the problem is, but my in-home tech expert (hubby) is telling me he is not sure how to fix it, so we might have to get professional help, which means we might have to send it away in the current climate. I can use my iPad but it is not always possible for me to leave comments on every blog I visit.  If you don’t see me for a while, that’s the reason why.  Fortunately I have several posts already to go, like this one, which was easy enough to add my first paragraph on.  I can do other posts also. Just not as fast as I can on my laptop.  

One day late for my recipe but I didn’t want to miss recognizing and honoring Memorial Day. 

I have a few recipes that I don't remember where I got them from, and this is one of those recipes.  No link today. These were very good but I found them a bit messy. Keep extra napkins on hand. 

Cheeseburger Sliders

2 lbs. ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 white onion, diced
6 slices cheddar cheese
12 dinner rolls or Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Preheat the oven to 350 deg. F (175 deg. C).

Combine the beef, salt, pepper and garlic powder in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish, mixing thoroughly, then pressing into a flat, even layer.  Bake for 20 minutes.  

Drain the liquid and set the cooked beef aside.  

Slice the rolls in half lengthwise.  

Place the bottom half in the same baking dish.  

Place the cooked beef on the rolls, followed by the onions and cheese.  Top with remaining rolls.  

Brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter and sprinkle the sesame seeds on top.  

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted.  

Slice into individual sliders and serve.

We had different opinions on this recipe, but I am putting it on here as I enjoyed it for the most part.  If we made it again I would just do one portion, and Gregg could have his cheeseburger. It is all to do with our different tastes.  Gregg felt that the finished version of the meat was more like a meatloaf and he has never enjoyed meatloaf.  I love meatloaf.  

He also prefers burgers done in a fry pan or on a grill than an oven. I have to say that he is a great burger chef and knows what he is doing, and I do love his cheeseburgers. 

He is a great sport letting me try this recipe, as he had doubts in the beginning.  We take turns on the meals we choose, and most of the time we enjoy what we cook equally. I was hopeful he would enjoy this more than he did.  We both said it was worth making as we always enjoy the process. 

We always seem to need longer time for our meals than recipes call for.  We found 20 minutes needed to be almost 30 minutes. I should get an oven thermometer to check, but it is a relatively new oven. 

The rolls separated as the top layer was put on, and during the process they slid off a bit.  

We had half of a tray left of Hawaiian Rolls in the bread box and used those, cutting ingredients by half.

We also grilled the onions before adding them with the cheese and bun tops for the last 20-25 minutes of the cooking.

Side dishes, as you can see in my photos, were our favorite beans, topped with extra grilled onions.  We always have a can of our favorite in the pantry.  Leftovers are good the next day as another side dish for our next meal.   

A few small dill pickles and sliced tomato finished it all off and it made a nice casual supper.  

Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your week. 


  1. Yum! I do hope your computer gets fixed soon, so frustrating. Especially now when anything like this is even harder to remedy.

    1. Thank you Ginny, the computer is still plodding along :)

  2. I hope your 'puter problems can be resolved quickly.

  3. Yum,such a good comfort food!

  4. They look delicious! Good luck with the computer!

  5. Computer issues can be more difficult to resolve now, but hope that yours will be sorted out, Denise. I agree that it’s more difficult to use a tablet for blogging. This sliders recipe reminded me of the ones we’ve enjoyed at White Castles, and now we can make them at home! Not sure when that will happen as Pat has found he can buy a package of WC sliders in the frozen food section of a local supermarket without any kitchen prep😉

    1. I think I have seen those WC sliders in the freezer section. I will have to take a look when I can. Some days you just need a non-fussy meal without much time in the kitchen. Today is one of those days :) Thanks Dorothy!

  6. Looks delicious. Denise, try downloading Google Chrome on your computers, the Ipad too, it solved my commenting problem on Blogger. Kay at Musings posted on that once.

    1. Thank you Christine, I will do that. I'll have to try and find Kay's post also :)

  7. Hope you can get your computer issues fixed.

    Many thanks for sharing the recipe.

    All the best Jan

    1. Thank you Jan and you are very welcome for the recipe. All the best to you too :)

  8. This sounds good to me. I love hamburgers...they are one of my favorite meals.

    I have not did this in a long time, but sometimes I will grill my burgers, and at the same time grill slices of onions about a quarter inch thick, and also have some frozen garlic bread...my favorite being Pepperidge farm brand..grill it on the grill, too...delicious. It has been so long since I have don't that I don't remember the timing of it all. But is burgers are so good like that.

    1. Oh that sounds so good grilling the onions that way. I love grilling the burgers also but when our old barbecue bit the dust, we didn't get another. Need to get one some time this summer. Thanks Rose :)

  9. Good luck on the computer. I can't comment using my iPad... well, I can but they don't show up!

    1. Thanks Linda, and I had the same thing with my iPad :(

  10. Sounds tasty!

    I don't have internet at home, so I've been quite limited in how many blogs I can read.

    1. Thanks William, it's good to see you again. I will pop on over to your blog soon. Running way behind lately :(


I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

I appreciate all who look at my blog, but I am unable to publish businesses or anonymous visitors.
