Sloppy Joe Slider Ingredients

How to Make Pull-Apart Sloppy Joes

First, prepare your rolls by cutting the “sheet” of rolls in half, horizontally with a serrated bread knife. Do not pull the rolls apart. Set rolls aside. 

Next, cook the ground beef, onions, and bell pepper over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain the excess fat. 

Turn the heat to low and add garlic powder, brown sugar, mustard, ketchup, salt & pepper to the beef mixture. Stir in the ingredients so they get nicely incorporated. 

Allow this mixture to simmer for 5 minutes. 

Spread the homemade sloppy joe sauce over the bottom portion of the sweet rolls. Place the top half of the rolls on top of the sloppy joe filling. 

Pull apart to serve.

Ground Beef Sloppy Joe Sliders Variations

  • Make sandwiches and use regular size buns.
  • Use ground turkey breast instead of ground beef. 

How to Handle Leftovers

Decide if you want to pull apart the remaining sliders or keep them together.

Place in sandwich bags or airtight containers in the refrigerator. 

They are good for up to 1 day. Any longer the rolls get saturated and soggy.
