Ingredients

  • 12 Hawaiian-style buttery rolls cut in half horizontally to make tops and bottoms
  • ½ pound corned beef sliced thin
  • ½ pound swiss cheese
  • 8 ounces sauerkraut drained

Topping

  • ¼ cup butter melted
  • 2 teaspoon stone ground dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon minced onions
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon poppy seeds or caraway seeds

Instructions

  • Prepare 9 x 13 baking dish or pan by placing parchment paper in bottom. You can also butter or spray the dish as well. Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Place bottom of the rolls in the dish.
  • Add ½ of the cheese on top of bottom rolls. Then layer corned beef slices on top of the cheese. Top with remaining cheese slices.
  • Next place sauerkraut on top of cheese and then spoon thousand island dressing on top.
  • Cover with the top half of the buns.
  • In a mixing bowl add melted butter, dijon mustard, minced onion, garlic powder, and poppy seeds and stir until combined.
  • Using a silicone brush mixture over tops of the rolls.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove foil and bake until tops are golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and cut into individual sliders and place on a plate or serving dish and serve warm.

Notes

✱ Nikki's Tips

  • Be sure to drain sauerkraut in a mesh strainer and then squeeze dry really well with a paper towel or cheese cloth. This will keep the sandwiches from getting soggy.
  • Use a sharp serrated bread knife to cut the rolls in half. This will help to cut them more evenly and keep the bread from crumbling.
  • Use up leftover corned beef or have your deli slice it for you for convenience.
  • Using sliced cheese works well for covering and melting. Don't get the slices overly thick or they take longer to melt. You want the cheese to melt before the top is overly brown. Covering for partial bake time also helps with this.
  • Cut using the rolls as a guideline. A cut and serve turner works nicely or a sharp knife.
  • Keep sliders together until ready to serve and then cut. This helps retain the heat longer so they will be warm when serving.
