We love making sliders for fun dinners or parties, these French Dip Party Sliders are one of our favorites! But now this beef slider recipe is climbing to the top.

What is Special Sauce?

Any of you who know McDonalds Big Mac sandwiches know what special sauce is. But in case you have been under a rock for 30 years or so, here it goes:

Special Sauce Ingredients:

• Mayonnaise

• Ketchup

• Pickle relish

• White vinegar

• Garlic powder

• Salt

So instead of making a burger patty, I turned this dish into a loose meat sandwich similar to a sloppy joe. Mixing that special sauce right in with the onions and beef to make these sliders super creamy and super delicious.

Can You Make These Sliders Ahead of Time?

The answer is mostly, yes.

You can make the filling ahead of time, but I do recommend doing it a certain way. Make the beef filling first, them the sauce separately.

Then right before serving heat up the beef filling and mix the sauce in with it while it’s warm. That way these sliders are the best tasting, creamiest versions of themselves.

And since it only takes about 15 minutes from start to finish, I’m thinking you’ve got this 100 percent.

These Sloppy Joe Mini Mac Sliders are so crazy tasty there going to be gone from the appetizer table in seconds. Oh, just making these for dinner? Well watch your family come running.

So next time you get a Big Mac attack, try one of these Sloppy Joe Mini Mac Sliders instead. It’ll satisfy that fast food craving easily.

Make sure you stack up the cheese and pickles accordingly – don’t leave off the toppings on this one!
