Make these French Dip Party Sliders for a fun dinner or at your next party for appetizers – either way they’ll be gone in minutes!
I know there’s a ton of recipes for these party sliders and I’ve tried just about all of them. The classic ham and cheese, the cheeseburger sliders, even cuban sliders. Yep – those are all good.
So you know I had to go ahead and make my own version. And this one tops them all – at least in my opinion. The best part? The buttery gravy that they bake in.
I love making appetizers that can turn into the main course like these Tex-Mex Sausage Tortilla Rolls. You think you’re just putting them out for appetizers but then you just keep eating until it becomes dinner. These sliders are a great example of that – put them out for apps or dinner, you’ll be good either way.
I started out by making a big old skillet of caramelized onions. I’m a huge caramelized onion fan, so if you are too feel free to even double the amount I put in this recipe. After the onions are cooked down, you can start putting the sliders together. Grab some roast beef from the deli counter and some provolone cheese too while you’re there…
Put the sliders in a glass baking dish and then start the gravy.
When I say gravy, I really mean a melted butter sauce that tastes like gravy. If you look at a recipe for ham and cheese party sliders they all get topped with a ton of butter and seasonings (that’s what makes them so good) but since I’m making french dip party sliders here I decided to add some gravy flavoring to the butter.
You can find powdered gravy packets at the grocery store – and yep, we use them all the time. Homemade gravy like everything else is always best but sometimes you need short cuts.
Here’s a video to show you how easy these are to put together!
I can’t even tell you how crazy good these French Dip Party Sliders turned out – you just have to make them and see for yourself. For a party, they’re perfect. You can make a few trays depending on how much you need – but we just ate these for dinner and there wan’t one complaint.
The only bad part? No leftovers.
