Ingredients and Substitutions
Here is a brief overview of the ingredients needed for this recipe. The full recipe with quantities is listed below this text in the recipe card. If substitutions are available for this recipe, they'll be listed here. If you don't see a substitution you are looking for, please leave a comment below.
- lean ground beef (this is best because when the ground beef bakes up, it'll render fat and a leaner ground beef renders just the right amount)
- sliced cheddar cheese (or any sliced cheese you like)
- brioche slider buns (you can also use dinner rolls or Hawaiin sweet rolls)
- pickle juice
You'll only need a small sheet pan here, and a quarter sheet pan (sized 9" x 13") works best.
Plus, a bowl and whisk to mix the special sauce.
If you do not have a quarter sheet pan, you can use something bigger, but you'll want to make sure to shape the burgers into a rough 9"x13" rectangle. The burgers do shrink up, but this is about the size pre-bake that you need to fit the slider buns.
Overview of Steps
This is truly an assembly-style meal. Here is how to make them:
- Press half of the ground beef onto the sheet pan.
- Lay on the cheese.
- Press the remaining ground beef on top.
- Bake in the oven.
- Assemble the burgers!
