Simple & Super Easy Italian Slider

Yep! This is an easy Italian slider recipe. What more can I say? It’s simple, super easy to make and incredibly delicious. Oh.. and pretty darn cheesy too… and who doesn’t like cheesy in any slider recipe? If you don’t like cheesy slider recipes – we can’ be friends. Just kidding… kinda. 🙂

You want to start off with a dozen tray buns. Or rolls, Or whatever you might want to call them. They should be connected though so that it makes making the sliders so much easier. Yes.. waaay easier. That’s why I called these easy italian sliders. LOL

So you’ll want to preheat the oven to 350. Taking a long knife, cut the whole tray of buns HORIZONTALLY. Take your time with this, you’ll want to do it as evenly as possible. If you dip here or there, or get it a bit crooked, big deal. It all tastes amazing in the end anyway!

The meats I used for these sliders are ham, salami, and mortadella deli meats. You can use whatever you’d like, but if you want an Italian flair, stick to the salami’s, capricola’s and such. Ham isn’t that Italian really, but I love ham, so I included that.

For the tray of buns, I used about 6 – 8 slices EACH of all three meats.

You’ll Need:

  • 12 buns, a tray of buns
  • 6 - 8 ham slices
  • 6 - 8 salami slices
  • 6 - 8 mortadella slices
  • 12 - 18 provolone slices
  • 2-3 tbsp grainy mustard
  • 1/4 c butter
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • as desired, parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Cut the tray of buns horizontally
  3. Fit the bottom buns (still attached to eachother) onto, or into a baking sheet or pan
  4. Spread with the mustard
  5. Begin layering the pieces of mortadella, then slices of cheese, then the salami, then the cheese, etc.
  6. When all layers are done, replace the top layer of the buns.
  7. Melt the butter and add the garlic and parsley. Brush onto the top of the buns
  8. Bake in the oven for approximately 12 - 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the tops of the buns are browned.
  9. Remove and let rest for 10 minutes, then cut and serve!
  10. Enjoy!
