Easy baked Italian sliders are full of pepperoni, salami and Italian deli meats and provolone cheese. I love that sliders are so quick & easy to make and they’re the perfect party appetizer or on the go meal!

Slider recipes are a mainstay of farm approved tractor meals. Farm wives around the country are nodding their heads right now…

So it should come as no surprise that this Italian slider bun recipe makes an appearance quite often around here.

Italian sliders are also an easy dinner idea. Our kids never turn these down, even the picky eaters!

Sliders on Hawaiian rolls make the perfect party food or field meals! I love that these savory and cheesy bundles can be served warm or at room temperature, making them ideal for packed lunches.

Ingredients

Let’s talk ingredients for a second. One stop in your deli is all you need to get rolling!

Rolling…As in Hawaiian rolls?? Ahhhh, so punny. Anyway…

  • Hawaiian Rolls
  • Provolone Cheese
  • Red Onion
  • deli pepperoni
  • salami
  • ham
  • capocollo or other Italian style meat
  • Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup Italian salad dressing

You can use any different deli meats that you like. You can make these slider sandwiches with mini rolls, too!

How to make easy Italian Sliders

These mini sandwiches are easy to assemble and to make it even EASIER, I’ve got step by step direction for you!

Step 1: Prep your buns.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Keeping the 12 rolls together, use a serrated knife to cut the Hawaiian rolls in half, creating a top and a bottom.

Put the bottom half of the buns in an oven safe pay.

Step 2: Layer, layer and then – layer.

Layer half the cheese, then all of the onions and meats on the bottom half of rolls. Add another layer of cheese. Place remaining half of rolls on top.

Pour salad dressing on top of bread, then sprinkle with Italian seasoning.

Step 3: Bake the sliders

Cover with foil and bake, 15 minutes until heated through and cheese is melted.  Remove foil and cook for 5 more minutes.

Step 4: Wait a few minutes

Cheese and meat right from oven tends to have a molten lava like quality. Allow your sandwiches to cool slightly. Cut & devour.

What should I serve with Italian Sliders?

Anything goes with these sliders. Chips, pretzels, some fruit. You name it!
