A super fun recipe, these Big Mac Sliders take a spin on our favorite restaurant sandwich and make them handheld but with all the same great flavor!

A FUN COPYCAT RECIPE

I’m a huge lover of all things Big Mac related, not just the sandwiches that you can get at the restaurant. I like to take a spin on them and make them into other things like wraps, salads and now I’m adding these Big Mac Sliders to the list. Don’t let the list of ingredients fool you. These are actually very simple to make. Whether you make this for family or friends, they will be a guaranteed hit! If you are a fan of the original version, then you need to make my Big Mac Slider recipe!

SUBSTITUTIONS:

  • Ground beef – Instead of beef you can use ground turkey, ground chicken or a mixture of ground beef and Italian sausage.
  • Buns – We like to use Hawaiian Rolls for these but you can use any kind of slider bun that you’d like. They will still taste amazing.
  • Vegetarian – The beef hamburger can be replaced with a plant-based burger to make this vegetarian.
  • Spices – You can add or omit any of the seasonings in this recipe to your liking.
  • Cheese – American is our go-to cheese for this recipe but you can swap out with cheddar, gouda, muenster, pepper jack and more. Make it how you would like it best.

Variations:

  • Spicy – If you want a little more spice to your burgers, just add some red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper.
  • Deluxe – You can add shredded lettuce and tomatoes to these as well if you want them to have more ingredients or that is how you enjoy your hamburgers!

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the burger patties to the skillet, do not crowd the pan, no need to add any oil to the pan, there is enough fat in the meat. Brown on both sides for about 3 minutes, or an internal temperature reaches 140°F. You may need to do this in batches.

Hint: Using sesame seeds gives a real pop to these and make these Big Mac Sliders look and taste like the real thing. They can easily be found in the spice section of your local grocers.
