French Onion Sliders

Hey, hey! Happy Monday from my house to yours! I don’t know about you, but I am needing some extra joy these days. I love cooking for my family, but I have always stuck to very simple meals since I am busy with work and kids and such. About a month ago, I started looking for some new recipes on Pinterest and have really enjoyed this!  Many have been wins, and my fam is enjoying the process for sure.  It’s brought a little bit of joy back to my days, in addition to be being a way that I can love on my family, and wanted to share here in case you needed to take back some joy for yourself as well.  :). Originally, I found this recipe here, and I am sharing it below in case you would like to try it as well.  We’ve made it a few times and love it!


  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, divided
  • 2 large sweet onions, sliced
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons beef base (such as Better than Boullion)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 24 slider buns
  • 12–16 ounces gruyere or swiss cheese, shredded


  1. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add in the onions and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly caramelized, about 25-30 minutes. If the onions start to look dry or burnt, add a tablespoon of water to the pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the ground beef with half of the beef base and half of the Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add the beef to the skillet full of onions. Increase heat to medium-high and brown the beef, breaking it up and mixing with the onions as you go. Once browned, drain off excess grease.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet. Separate the tops from the bottoms of the slider buns. Fit the slider bottom buns tightly on the baking sheet.
  5. Evenly distribute the beef and onion mixture over the bottom buns. Top with the gruyere cheese. Cover with the top buns.
  6. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter with the remaining beef base. Stir in the remaining Worcestershire sauce and continue to mix until well-combined. Using a pastry brush, brush the beefy butter mixture over the top buns. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds, thyme, onion powder, and garlic powder.
  7. Bake the sliders until the cheese is fully melted and the tops of the rolls are lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
