French Dip Sliders
serves 4 to 6 | Total Time: 1 hour
10 tablespoons butter
1 onion, sliced
2 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
pack of 12 sweet rolls
12 slices provolone cheese
1 lb roast beef, thinly sliced
1 1/2 tablespoon onion soup mix
1 packet au jus mix
1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350F. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick spray. Cut the sweet rolls in half, keeping the tops connected to each other and the bottoms connected to each other. Place the bottoms into your prepared dish and set aside.
2. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a small frying pan over medium high heat. Add in your onion slices and sauté until softened and browned. about 12 to 14 minutes.
Make sure to continuously stir the onions so they cook and don't burn.
Add more butter if they begin to stick!
3. Add 2 teaspoons thyme, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to your cooked onions. Stir and cook to combine the flavors.
4. Begin to put the sliders together. Layer 6 slices of provolone on the bottom rolls. Top with the roast beef and the cooked onions. Layer the remaining 6 slices of cheese over the onions. Place the tops back onto the sweet rolls.
5. Melt the remaining 8 tablespoons of butter in a small bowl. Mix 1 1/2 tablespoon onion soup mix with the melted butter. Pour or brush over the tops of the sliders.
6. Loosely cover the dish with foil, but make sure it is not touching the top or sides of sliders. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for 5 additional minutes, or until golden brown.
7. As the sliders bake, prepare the au jus according to the package.
8. Serve on the side of your baked sliders.
