I'm not a huge sports fan. I am, however, a huge fan of Game day grub! And with the big game coming up this weekend, I know I'll be indulging in some fantastic football food! 

It's an excuse to eat just a little naughty. It's all about balance after all.

If you are looking for a fun Game Day recipe, you've come to the right place because these Sausage and Peppers Hawaiian Roll Sliders make great addition to your tailgate menus.

(Take a peek at my other favorite oven baked, pull apart slider recipe: BBQ Beef and Cheddar Sliders for another take on these mini sandwich appetizers!)

Who doesn't love those oven baked sliders made with sweet Hawaiian rolls?  Sure, they are sloppy and messy, but that ooey gooey goodness is what makes them so irresistible. Sausage and Peppers Hawaiian Roll Sliders makes a great slider recipe for a crowd.

How do you make sliders in the oven?

Hawaiian roll sliders baked in the oven, like these Sausage and Peppers Hawaiian Roll Sliders, aren't hard to make.

I like make them in disposable aluminum pans if I'm taking them to a party, so I don't have to worry about clean up or bringing my pan home.

To make sliders in the oven, split the Hawaiian rolls sheet in half, fill it, pour melted garlic butter on top, cover and bake for a few minutes in the oven. That's all there is to it!

What sides to serve with sliders?

These mini sandwich appetizers are a meal in themselves, but any kind of chip (potato, corn, etc.) would pair nicely with them. They're also great served with pasta salads like Roasted Vegetable Pasta Salad or Easy Broccoli Pasta Salad.

Tips for making the best Hawaiian Roll Sliders

  • Have all ingredients prepped and ready to make assembly easier.
  • Make sure you cover the pan tightly, so the rolls don't dry out in the oven
  • One word...cheese...don't skimp on it. You need it to hold everything together.

  1. I tried this recipe the other day for game night and it was amazing ! Everyone loved it !

    1. Hello! Thank you so much for your review. I am so happy everyone enjoyed this recipe! It's always a hit whenever I serve it.

  2. Did you use the dried salad dressing or the pre-mixed liquid?

    1. Hi Ash-Bash! I used the regular bottled dressing. Thanks!

  3. can you make them a day ahead and put them in the fridge and add the topping before putting in the oven???

    1. Hi! Thanks for your question. I have not done this and my gut says it would get too soggy if you do. To save time, you could cook the sausage, onion, and peppers (adding the sauce and dressing) ahead of time and store in refrigerator until ready to assemble. Then the day you want to make it, just spread the mixture on when called for. This is what I would suggest to make ahead of time. Hope this helps!

  4. Just wanted to say this is one amazing recipe. I had trouble controlling how many I ate. Better than any other slider I've ever had. Only thing I would do different, is leave it in the oven for at least 30 minutes. The cheese was melted, but the rolls were barely warm at 20 minutes.
    Thank you for sharing this recipe. Definitely one I will make over and over again.

    1. Hi Cindy! Thank you for your review! I'm so happy you enjoyed this recipe. Great tip on the time spent in the oven! Thanks for pointing that out! All ovens cook differently, so a little more time might be warranted to get them to the temperature you like.

  5. This is really good. I use ground beef with some spices instead of sausage because my son doesn’t like it. I also am too lazy to do the melted butter stuff on top so I skip that lol.

  6. This looks amazing. I’m just unsure what kind of sausage you use. Is it the frozen type like Jimmy Deans that comes in a roll or links? If you could please let me know asap I would greatly appreciate it. I’d like to make them for Super Bowl.

    1. Hello and thanks for your comment. That sausage will work perfectly with this recipe. Any kind of Italian Sausage will work. Hope this helps!
