These Cheesy Party Burgers are so fun and ridiculously delicious! They’re great to whip up for a crowd or to just make a weeknight dinner extraordinary. Kevin took one bite and said I should call them “Diamond Burgers” because they’re small and bite-sized like a Krystal burger, but who would want a Krystal Burger when you could have a DIAMOND burger??! Get it?? ?

Bottom line, if you want to start the party, make these Cheesy Party Burgers! :)

Here’s what you’ll need for the burgers. Ground beef, dinner rolls, diced tomatoes (I like Ro-Tel), sliced cheese, garlic, and some seasonings. I used smoked paprika, cumin, salt, pepper, and mustard powder.

How to Make Cheesy Party Burgers

First we’ll start by browning the ground beef. Here’s how I like to do mine. First, I get the pan very, very hot, until it starts to smoke.

Then I add the ground beef, straight from the package, without breaking it up. I let it cook like this for 1-2 minutes over high heat, until the bottom is browned and seared.

Then I flip it over and let the other side brown, for 1-2 minutes. This extra step helps the beef not look “gray” and the sear gives the beef a fabulous flavor. It’s all about the flavor!

When the second side is browned, add the seasonings and onions, then break up the beef with a spatula to finish browning.

Drain off any excess grease, if necessary, then add the garlic and stir to combine until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Now place the bottom half of the dinner rolls in a 9×13 baking dish that’s been generously coated with nonstick cooking spray.

Top with the beef….

And 12 slices of cheese. I am using sharp cheddar, but feel free to use your favorite cheese!

Now we’re going to make a fabulous glaze that is going to send these burgers over the top!!! You’ll need Worcestershire sauce, mustard, butter, brown sugar, and sesame seeds. Because burgers need sesame seeds!

If you’re totally against mustard you can use ketchup here instead. I’m not the hugest fan of mustard and would never willingly put it on my burger, but I like it in this glaze. You’ll never even know it’s there.

    Happy customers ever single time!  This recipe is sooooo yummy!  It is definitely loved by all who have them.  

    I make this often for parties :)  Easy, quick and delicious!

    Thanks have made the same day and the day before and both turned out great.  Thanks for this great recipe!

  2. Cheryl

    I used Hawaiian Sweet rolls and followed the rest of the recipe exactly. My family found it too sweet. The next time I make it I will use potato rolls and exclude the brown sugar from the glaze. We liked the burger mixture, though.

  3. Amelia

    I made these last week just for kicks…and my husband and children  loved them. Going to my great grandmother’s home for Easter Sunday with the entire family and my kids hate to eat big. So I’m making these along with a nice garden salad for them to eat. These are great. The sauce on top three me off until I sunk my teeth into the little slider. Awesome recipe. This is definitely a recipe to keep. 

    Thanks!

  4. Kyanna. L

    I made these this past weekend and I must say they were delicious!! After reading some of the comments, I decided to use 1 1/2 of beef and it was perfect for all 12 rolls! Additionally I skipped the Browning step and just scrambled the burger from the beginning. I also seasoned with my staple seasonings; garlic and onion powder, pepper and adobo! They were a big hit, and it was super easy. I will definitely make these again, thanks for sharing!

  5. Crystal

    I just made these , actually I made 3 pans of them, they are so good my family can’t get enough,
    A neighbor had made a pan and brought over during a death in family
    It went great, one is small enough for a child, or 4 to 6 for adults, the entire household loved them and they are simple and easy to make

  6. Susan

    Made these for our book club as the characters ate cheeseburgers, among other things, in the story, They were a big hit! … So simple since I was able to prepare ahead of time … shared your link.
    Tonight I’m switching it up and making cheesy party cheesesteaks … I imagine these will go over well, too!
    Thank you!

  7. Kadie

    Ok I NEVER EVER write a comment on something I have made/been interested in. Considering this is my 4th time making these I JUST had too!! These are the BESSST sliders I have ever had! So so sooooo good and such an easy recipe!!! Thank YOU!!!!  

  8. Cindy Hughes

    These are the absolute yummiest! I made them for our family gathering & everyone devoured 2 pans in a matter of minutes! I love using my brother’s as guinea pigs! ?Well, WOW! They were such a hit my brothers have requested them ever since…only they want to make WAY MORE! Thanks for an awesome recipe! I used Hawaiian sweet rolls.

  9. Sydney

    I just wanted to stop in and say that this is going to be my 4th time making these, and they’re a big hit with my whole family! I’ve doubled and tripled the recipe to make for large crowds, and everybody loves them. Big thanks to Kevin and Amanda for sharing this recipe!

  10. Shelia Baldwin

    I made these cheeseburger party buns for our office party and they were a big hit! everyone loved them! Absolutely delicious!

  11. Debbie Haid

    To those that toasted the bottom buns to prevent sogginess, did you toast the top of the buns or bottom, broiler or regular oven?
    Thanks

  12. Debbie Haid

    To those that toasted the bottom bun, did you toast the top part of the bottom buns or the bottom of the bun to prevent a soggy bun? Did you broil or use regular oven?
    Thanks

  13. Eve

    Oh my gosh! These are so yummy. Made them for a church gathering and everyone was raving about them. Knife and fork required, but who cares. They heat up the microwave easily. Thanks!

  14. Janet

    I do love these, and will find a reason to make them as I’m single and cook for one.  But…. Hard to eat just one!   6 slices of cheese instead of 12 and half the topping sauce will trim about 80 calories, in case that’s a concern.  Still yummy!!

  15. wanda

    I really want to try this recipe, however, wondering… do the bottom buns not get soggy and fall apart from the ground beef? Especially if doin ahead overnight?

    1. Janet

      No.  The beef isn’t very moist, and the tomatoes are drained.  If they do get soggy, the baking will take care of it.  Fix ahead and pop in the oven when it’s time.

  16. Taylor

    Has anyone made these without separating the buns first? I wonder if that would help with the bottoms getting too soggy. Going to try for Sunday!

  17. Tracey

    Recipe is a keeper and another maker. The fam gobbled these little gems up in one sitting and asked me to make them again. I used Hawaiian rolls by mistake and after reading the comments, it may have saved the soggy effect others experienced since my rolls were slightly more dense than wonder rolls. At least the bottoms are…. I also added too much hamburger but saved what I didn’t use for wonton bites. If you do exactly as the recipe says, it’s a home run. Thanks for sharing!

  18. Michelle B.

    Oooohhhh WOWSERS these were ridiculously delicious! Oooey and goooey, flavorful and oh so simple! I did make some the day of my football party but had 2 trays leftover ( I tripled the recipe) unbaked and was worried about the glaze absorbing into the buns but that was not the case and when baked the next day, they were even better than the first day! Great recipe, instant fan fave and now I am inspired…..I think I will use the same approach another time and do the ground beef with sweet bell peppers, onions, salt, black pepper and provolone or white american to get that oooey goooey philly type bread! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Five stars all around and I never leave recipe reviews!!

  19. Catherine

    These burgers were a hit at my son’s 12th birthday. So easy to make and truly delicious. I wasn’t able to find the bread you had and ended up with Hawaiian Bread Rolls and it was so good. I’ve already recommended and shared with family. So happy I found this recipe and can’t wait to make it for my mother who will be coming into town for a visit. Thank you!!!

  20. Laurie

    I made these tonight and they were AWESOME even though the rolls I got were too big (LOL!). Next time I’ll use smaller but they were still delish! Thanks! :)

  21. Lisa @ The Cooking Bride

    This was a keeper! I pinned this ages ago and finally decided to make them yesterday. Made them in the morning, but waited to pour the glaze over just before putting them in the oven. The glaze makes the sandwiches! The bottoms were soggy and we did have to eat them with a fork, but that didn’t matter. They were still so delicious! I will definitely makes these again.

  22. Lori

    Took these to a get together with friends and everyone wanted the recipe, they were delicious! The Hawaiian sweet rolls come in an 18 count, next time I will buy this size and make a little extra filling to compensate for the extra rolls understanding I will have to make one and a half the sauce recipe too. These really are yummy, thanks for sharing

  23. Jeanie

    This looks like a fantastic meal…but my question is….are these soggy on the bottom after cooking? Not that it would be a problem eating it with a fork , but was wonderful what the texture is after cooking. Thanks

  24. Janet

    I’ve made these and they’re great!  I froze a piece of leftover to see how it would do – it was fine but am wondering if the dish could be assembled in advanced and frozen, then thawed and baked?  Company coming and would like to have this dish, plus it would also be a great one to have on hand for “new mom meal” etc.

     Any opinions?

    Thx!

  25. Debbi Spencer

    I had these at my niece’s today and they are DELISH! She sent me this link at my insistence, and I will be making them to take to a church dinner next week. Can’t wait to eat them again…and what a fantastic plus that I can make them the night before! Thank you so much for sharing.

  26. hillary

    These are amaaazzinggg!!! 25 min was too long for me to bake them, mine were nice and toasted about 15 min. And I halved the glaze this time, because they were crazy messy the first time I made them! I recommend halving the glaze

  27. Robin

    This recipe has become a go-to for our family!  So quick and easy and yummy!  Feels like a special occasion!  Thank you so much!

  28. April

    I just made these with ground turkey, white cheddar, muenster, and Hawaiian rolls. Delicious, definitely a keeper!

  29. Suzy

    Made one time, they were awesome. The 2nd time, the bottoms were so soggy, they were gross & barely edible. Followed the recipe exactly the same both times. Not sure what went wrong with the 2nd batch. Any ideas or suggestions to prevent the bottom half of bun from getting so soggy & wet? 

    1. Lori

      I had the same problem the first time I made them, I drained the beef grease and distributed the glaze evenly and the bottom buns were extremely soggy… maybe I will toast the bottom buns first or wait to glaze them until the last few min of bake time :/ too bad because they were delicious otherwise

  30. Melissa

    This is my go to party dish. It’s always a hit!! Thank you for such a great recipe. To those hesitant about the glaze, give it a try! It’s the absolute bomb!

  31. Donna

    Don’t they get soggy??? Or do they crisp up after baking? It seems like it would be a soggy mess and hard to eat unless you eat it with a fork and knife!

  32. Lexie Stevens

    I made these the other week and it was delicious! The glaze definitely brought it to another level. I didn’t have cumin (don’t particularly like it either), but I added a pinch of cajun seasoning instead. I also used a combination of sharp cheddar and pepperjack cheese along with hawaiian rolls. These were such a hit :)

  33. Jennifer

    Okay, YUM. These are sinful. Before I made this recipe I thought all the comments were a little over the top but they are oh so true!

    My only regret…I only made half of the glaze. I had convinced myself no dish should have entire stick of butter. I was wrong. Y’all. This glaze. Just don’t look at the nutritional info because you won’t even eat just one.

  34. Bev

    Just made these today . I sprayed my dish and made them in the morning, put the glaze on them and then put then in the fridge until lunch. I enjoyed them but found some of the bottom buns were a little mushy. Any suggestions?

  35. Alicia

    Not bad but I think next time I will omit the brown sugar from the glaze. Just not feeling the sweetness. Other than that it was good kind of reminded me of sloppy joes.

  36. Monica

    These were delicious! My husband called them super Nu-Ways(a local burger fav). I love how crisp the top is. I made them a couple hrs ahead of time and had no gooeyness problem. They were easily eaten with hands, no fork required.

  37. Karen

    These were amazing!!! I was skeptical but made them and they were a HUGE hit with the family….these will rotate in as a regular family meal. I may even take to work for pot luck!

  38. Kim

    So glad I found this on Facebook and then came to your site. So many yummy recipes. I have learned to always read the comments first because everyone needs to customize things to their own or their family’s tastes. I did go ahead and cook the bottom of the buns first to firm them up before putting the toppings on. I also didn’t have any brown sugar or sesame seeds but did half of the glaze recipe with regular sugar. So delicious! I never would have thought to add this. Last thing I did was cook bacon and add it. Works great with turkey bacon too, my kids couldn’t tell the difference. Thank you sooo much! Trying the Hot Ham & Cheese Party Rolls next!

  39. Penny Smith-Haverly

    I received this recipe from face book, it looked so yummy I passed it on to my daughter. She made them for a party and got rave reviews. I finally made them for my nephews 14th birthday. I made a pan of 20 burgers, they were gone in a new York minute. Just spicy enough to know what’s in them but not enough to offend some people, just right. Thank you so much for a simple but yummy crowd pleaser.

  40. Amy

    I can’t find the Wonder buns and the Kings rolls seem so small-any suggestions! Want to make this for a party this week!

  41. Jessica

    Tried these tonight ans they were SO GOOD!!! I’ve tried 2 or 3 of your recipes so far and I was able to do all of them and everyone loved them! Thank you! Will definitely be making these again soon.

  42. Kimberly

    Good Morning, I made this for my family and they are a hit. This recipe is great to make with a house full of people. I know you had mention I can assemble these the night before with the glaze, but do I still set the oven at 350 and for 25 minutes? Will it still come out hot and gooey with that temperature and the set time?

  43. Marie

    Wondering if there is a good substitute for rotel as I can not eat the peppers. Maybe just diced tomatoes?! I know flavor will be different but hoping texture will be ok.

  44. Michelle

    We made these yesterday and they were delish! The sauce on top is a must do! I saw a bunch of questions so thought I would share our strategy. We toasted the bottom of the buns for about 5 minutes to ensure they wouldnt get soggy. Draining the rotel ensures no liquidy mess. I expected them to be kind of like sloppy joes but they held together really well, not too much of a mess. go for it!!

  45. Peggy Lyon

    I made these yesterday for our Super Bowl party, and let me tell you – they are awesome! Everyone there loved them! I did not use Wonder dinner rolls, but used whole wheat dinner rolls from Trader Joes and they turned out great. Trader Joes also has cans of the tomatoes with roasted chilis. I pretty much followed the exact recipe, but cut back a little on the black pepper. Loved them, and will definitely make this again. It’s great to be able to feed so many with only 1 lb of ground beef!

  46. Brianne

    I made these for our superbowl party. They are fantastic and so easy. I will definitely make them again. Thanks for the recipe!

  47. Carolyn

    Made these tonight for the super bowl and these are definitely making it into the tailgate rotation! Now I’m curious what variations I can do to make these as amazingly delicious (like buffalo chicken!?) so yummy!

  48. Katie

    Made these Diamond burgers today. Doubled the receipe, used one hot Rotell and an one original. Followed directions until I got to the glaze – substituted regular mustard and a pineapple / honey mustard. Oh so good! Will make again for sure :-)

  49. Deb

    Made these and these were amazing. Recipe does not state to cover with foil during baking process, but I definitely would next time. The tops were a little dry since I didn’t cover.

  50. Sarah

    The glaze on these is amazing and puts them over-the-top! I made them for my family and they were a hit! Thank you guys for the recipe!

  51. Kacey

    I just made these for dinner and they were great! My only problem is that 25 minutes of baking seems too long. I did mine for 20 and the buns still came out dark and hard. But that’s easily fixed for next time. This is definitely staying in my recipe collection.

  52. Gina

    These were amazing!! However, I would recommend toasting the bottom buns for just a bit before placing meat on them. My bottom buns got a bit mushy. That glaze makes the slider!!!’ Thanks for sharing!

  53. Kim

    I thought that the recipe was great until I got to the glaze. My family hates those ham and cheese ones because of the sweet glaze on top. Any suggestions on the glaze on what to use that isn’t sweet? Thank you.

    1. Amber

      Best Darn Ham Sandwiches Ever recipe uses 1 stick butter, 2 tsp worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp poppy seeds…no sweetness for this glaze, but flavor is great! I have made that recipe many times & have also changed meat & cheese and they turn out awesome! I don ‘t care for the sweet glazes with the ham sandwiches either.

  54. Sally

    AMAZING! This was so quick & easy to put together. Tried it out on my husband and son..only problem I should have made a double recipe, they LOVED it so much. Can’t wait to make for the grandkids.

  55. TV Tran

    hello, Amanda
    i was wondering if I could use aluminum trays instead of glass trays? I’m just gonna do it right before everyone comes and throw the trays away instead of having to wash for i know it will need to be soaked before i can do that…

  56. JenEpi

    Made this today, was very good! I used ground turkey and Kings Hawaiian rolls. I also left the dish in the oven a few minutes after turning off the heat to get the glaze to set a bit. Was worried the bottom bun would be mushy but it was perfect – crusty on the outside, soft on the inside.

  57. Tennis Gal

    Made a double recipe of these for our Halloween tennis social last night. They were the hit of the night and not a one was leftover!

  58. Bernie

    Can you substitute Hawaiian R0lls, or would it make the recipe too mushy???
    Please let me know as I plan on making them soon :)

    1. JenEpi

      I’m probably too late, BUT I used Hawaiian rolls and they were great! The outside of the top and bottom bun were toasty, the inside soft :-)

  59. Paula

    I made these for a tailgate recently and they were devoured! I don’t enjoy chopping onions so I made a slight change: I used a small bag of pre-chopped onions and I doubled the recipe for a bigger crowd. They were a huge hit and I will definitely be making them again. Thank you!

  60. Laurel

    Made these for the second time today. They are the BOMB! Definitely going to be part of my regular rotation. This is one of the best recipes I have found on Pinterest. Thanks so much for posting.

  61. Joan

    My family loved these – even if the finished product looked like a pinterest fail. The tops of the buns were not burned exactly – but very blackened – as if the sugar in the glaze had burned. I used Kings Hawaiian rolls and maybe the sugar in them burned? Would love to try again and get it completely right. Do you cover with foil before baking?

  62. Michael R

    I made these tonight and the family devoured them! Definitely a keeper! Follow the recipe exactly and they came out great! The family even liked the sauce ; which I was kind of worried about.

  63. Holly

    I made these puppies last night. I didn’t have all of the ingredients and had to improvise, so I put some curry and chili powder in place of the cumin and added three different cheeses; havarti, cheddar, brie and green onions. They were Fantastic and really delicious! The family loved them and I will be making them again.

  64. mandy

    Do you think I could make these guys into patties and grill them? Or would that take away from the melty goodness? Anyone ever tried that? I have ALL the ingredients. I am so excited!

  65. Jeanne

    We loved them! I didn’t use as much seasoning, didn’t have cumin or sesame seeds and I also made only half the recipe for the glaze. They came out beautifully – taste is divine! Just the two of us, so was able to reheat leftovers in foil on a low temp oven the next day. College football begins next weekend, guess what will be the “Tailgating Star”! We tailgate at home in the media room, just a few steps away from the kitchen. These are awesome! Thank You! Roll Tide!

  66. Bonnie

    Making these right now — I left the foil on while cooking, is this right? Think I’ll take foil off the last 5 minutes. will let you know how the neighborhood will like this !!!!

  67. Pam H

    WOWWWWWWW!! These lil’ bad boys are FANTASTIC!! I’d written a review earlier this afternoon, but it didn’t go through…at that time, i’d said I couldn’t have any, due to a diet i’m on, but that I may just have to have 1…wellllll, I did… I had 1…then 2…then 3!!!!!!! My hubby loved them too…rating these out of 1 to 10–these little pieces of heaven are a 20+!! Thanks for an awesome recipe!! Will be making often!! I didn’t have any cumin (not even sure what that tastes like) or sesame seeds, but other than that, I followed your perfect recipe!!

  68. Deanna

    Do we need to set these in the fridge over night (does it increase or solidify the flavor?), or can we cook them and eat after right after assembling?

    1. Amanda

      Hi Deanna! You can do either or. I’ve done it both ways and they taste the same to me! :) Hope this helps! :)

  69. Kelly

    These look very intriguing. I will definitely be trying these in the near future. It seems like this would be a great burger option for a rainy day when the weather isn’t perfect for grilling. Thanks for sharing.

  70. RT

    No Dijon mustard so have to make due with regular mustard and hope it tastes good.
    I know the Rotel will be too hot for my kiddos so going with petite diced tomatoes in garlic and olive oil
    Hoping it will come out okay.
    thanks for the recipe!!

    I just made this, but I used ground turkey instead of ground beef and used the Hawaiian sweet rolls instead of the normal dinner rolls and used regular mustard because I didn’t have any Dijon on hand. It was absolutely delicious and incredible. Kevin and Amanda you guys are amazing! You have done it again! I love your recipes. I’m going to try your Orange sweet rolls next.

  72. Veronica

    Question: has anyone tried making these ahead and freezing them for a few days? They look delish, and I’m always on the lookout for freeze-ahead meals.

    Mustard butter? I live in a very “country area”. Haven’t been able to find thiis. Am I stupid, or is this just dry mustard and butter mixed?

    1. Sandy

      Sheri, nothing in the recipe calls for mustard butter. If you are talking about the glaze, Amanda’s post says you will need: You’ll need Worcestershire sauce, mustard, butter, brown sugar, and sesame seeds.

      there is a comma between mustard and butter.

    Oh my goodness were these good !!! I made these last night and my husband was thrilled.
    If any of you want an easy tasty dinner for your family give this a try you won’t be disappointed.
    Thank you !!!!

    I’ve made these 3 times now since I discovered this recipe. Twice for family and once for a work “snack day.” They’ve been a hit each time. For the work snack day, I used 24 small bite-size rolls, and they were the perfect size for several people to have a sample. The glaze is a must, they really give these the flavor that sends them over the top. They freeze and reheat well. A co-worker asked for the recipe and made them with ground turkey meat and said they turned out awesome.

  76. Grace

    Everything looks yummy…….. except I will leave off the sesame seeds. No likey…… LOL I buy buns without the seeds. I may make them both ways to check if they make a difference. (yeah, an excuse to make more) :-)

  77. Elise

    These were so easy and so good and the glaze puts them over the top! It seems there could be so many variations but I’m not sure I’m clever enough to come up with different glazes, so if you do come up with other varieties, please share with us!

    I too have made many of your recipes and they never disappoint! Thank you!

    These were a big hit on our Father’s Day family picnic- no grilling! I changed the meat mixture by omitting the Rotel – cumin- smoked paprika- but all other ingredients wre the Same- my hungry husband and sons loved them – words like “amazing” and “delicious” were heard throughout the meal! Going to make them again for the 4th picnic. The glaze is perfect !

  79. Elizabeth

    OMG!! just made these…. they are TO. DIE. FOR!!!
    They are sooooooo super easy…. I have to admit.. the brown sugar glaze threw me for a loop… wasn’t going to add the glaze.. but OMG!! you have to have that glaze…. the slight (very slight) sweetness mixed with the warmth of the Rotel tomato and green chile… and that melted butter oozing everywhere.. with the Worcestershire glazing the beef… OMG.. the flavor is SINFUL!! wish i could submit a pic.. they look soooooo good!! and taste even better!

    These were great! I think I will cover them the next time because the top buns were a little too brown. Any suggestions for sides to go with?

    1. Meggan

      I covered mine with foil until the last 5 minutes and they were perfectly browned on top! I made homemade garlic Parmesan fries to go with mine. :)

  81. Tia

    say yes yes yes to the glaze!! The glaze threw me off but you won’t regret!! I toasted the bottom buns first. That’s a must. I let glaze cool before I put it on top not too much of the butter will thicken.

  82. Men's

    these look delicious. Do you know of a substitute for the Worcestershire sauce. My daughter is allergic to fish and Worcestershire has anchovies in it. We found this out the hard way. Thanks.

    1. Brian C.

      @Men’s Another really good substitute for Worcestershire or soy sauce is Bragg’s Liquid Aminos. It’s non GMO, gluten free and tasty. I too found out about the anchovies the hard way. Hope this helps!

      @Amanda Great recipe!

  83. Diedra

    I made these tonight. I added bacon bits and diced up some jalapeños (we like spicy). They were really good but next time I will stick the buns in the oven for a bit to toast them slightly. Just a wee bit soggy on the bottom. I will def make again! Yum!!

  84. Diedra

    I was wondering if you could mix all the patty ingredients into the raw hamburger meet and make little patties for real “sliders”. What do you think? This sounds amazing and can’t wait to try it! Thank you!

  85. bridget

    Hello. This may sound like a silly question, but how do you eat them? Like a slider, or does the glaze may them soggy and require a fork? They look delicious either way, but I just thought I’d ask so I’d know what to expect.
    Than you!
    -Bridget

  86. Mary

    I made these tonight for dinner and my family loved them. I will be making these again. Thanks for sharing. God Bless.

  87. Lori S

    I just finished making these as a “trial run”. They were a hit! I had a bite of the filling before I put it on the bun and baked them. Whoo-hoo, was it ever spicy. But after you put it on the bun, add the cheese, top it off with the sauce and bake them…..they are delicious! Not spicy at all. I’ll be making these for my husband’s poker night! ( only thing I might do differently, is cover them with foil before I bake them).

  88. Betsy

    We had these tonight and they were wonderful! I hope they heat well because there are only 2 0f us which means there are a ton leftover! Thanks for the recipe. I am always on the lookout for new things to try and being quick and easy as well as good is just an added bonus!

  89. Suse

    Tonia^ I didn’t separate my rolls apart, and our bottoms were soft but not mushy. We had to eat ours with a fork, because the glaze on top was kind of sticky. Will definitely make again!

  90. Suse

    Just put the EMPTY pan in the dishwasher! Followed the recipe, except forgot to buy sesame seeds. The family loved it! Thanks a bunch!

  91. Tonia

    What is the texture of the bottom bread? my husband will not eat anything that is even close to be wet or mushy!!
    Thanks

  92. Cindy

    I will be making these but due to dietary restrictions, substituting ground turkey for the ground beef. The color probably won’t be there but the flavors should make up for that. Thanks!

    1. Patti

      I made these on King’s Hawaiian rolls and had no leftovers. Making them again today for a Superbowl Party. They were awesome and everyone loved them the first time :)

  93. Teresa Hall

    Thank you! I’ve just found my main dish for my son’s graduation party in two weeks! I think everyone will love these, and I can make them the night before. A great way to celebrate another Auburn engineer in the family. (And he graduates on Mother’s Day, which is my birthday. How perfect is that?) War Eagle!

  94. Ryane

    Yumm Yumm goodness. Im trying this next weekend Craft weekend and yummy burger sounds Good to me. Thank you for posting the great photos you always do. It makes me feel like i can make it. Pronto .

  95. Traudel Tipton

    Hi,
    I just put these wonderful little things in the oven. Oh, it smells soooo good. I just made 2 changes. Since I don’t like cumin, actually I really do not like it, I left it out. And I put some fresh mushrooms in the meat. And now I have to wait for 10 more minutes…
    Thank you for all your yummy recipes. My sons favorite recipe is your spicy sausage noodle dish. I could cook that every week only for him.

    1. Nicolle

      Made them on the weekend, they were awesome. And they reheat well – just toss in toaster oven wrapped up in foil.

  96. Jocelyn @Brucrew Life

    Holy moly! That’s burger goodness right there!!! I am loving every single thing about these awesome burgers, girl!!!

  97. Kara

    These look AMAZING. Just one question – if you assemble them the night before and add the glaze, it doesn’t make them all mushy (technical term)? Should I wait to add the glaze instead, right before baking?

    1. Amanda

      Hi Kara! I’ve done it both ways and can’t really tell a difference in the texture. They’re both soft, either way. :) But you can do it either way you prefer! :) Good luck!! :)

  98. Lovie

    I’ve tried two of your recipes so far and they have been a family hit (going to have to keep rotel in stock). Can’t wait to try this one this weekend.

  99. Suzanne

    These are so happening soon! I’m having a party Saturday night and if I had not bought the stuff already for it, I would make these.

  100. Anele @ Success Along the Weigh

    Gotta admit, you threw me with the glaze on top but it all looks so delicious, gooey and that good kind of messy that I’m gonna make ’em!
