Mushroom Swiss Sliders

filed under: Food + Drink on May 31, 2019

Quite possibly the best slider I have ever made, and I have made a few!  These Mushroom and Swiss Sliders are a unique spin on a traditional Mushroom and Swiss Burger, made with a sweet buttered dinner roll, perfectly seasoned ground beef and a savory Swiss cheese sauce that will leave you wanting more! #originalrecipe If you love sliders, make sure to check out my cheeseburger sliders and my buffalo chicken sliders too!

Mushroom Swiss Sliders

The idea for these mushroom and swiss sliders recipe came from a combination of multiple interconnected but perfect events.  After ordering a regular cheeseburger at a local pub, I decided that I wanted to make that into a pasta.  I took the basic components of a cheeseburger, created my own unique cheese sauce and presto, I developed a cheeseburger pasta.

Now, once my family tried it, we decided it was so delicious, we started to wonder if there were any other burger variations that could potentially be turned into a pasta dish.  We discussed Mushroom and Swiss pasta, and the wheels were turning.  After testing out a few variations on a cheese and mushroom sauce blend, I finally found the perfect combination for Mushroom Swiss Pasta. After trying that amazing pasta, we decided it MUST be made into a slider. Well, I happened to have an abundance of tested mushroom and swiss meat as well as the mushroom swiss cheese sauce.  I decided to put it on a bun and see what happened.  The results, I am happy to report, are ah-mazing.

Truth be told, I don’t like mushrooms. But after ONE bite I declared these to be the best sliders I have ever eaten. They are THAT GOOD.

These little handheld sandwiches are perfect for my family.  With simple ingredients, You can make them from scratch in just about 30 minutes.  I broke this recipe into three sections, the hamburger, the cheese sauce, and the buttered seasoned buns.  It seems like a lot of ingredients but it really is very simple.

Meat and Cheese for a Mushroom Swiss Slider

For the Hamburger

You will need:

  • Ground Beef: I like to go with 80/20, but you could use a leaner version if you prefer.
  • Seasonings:  Worchestershire, Lawrys, Salt, Pepper, and McCormick Hamburger Seasoning round out the seasonings for this recipe.  If you don’t have hamburger seasoning, you could mix together onion powder (or toasted onion flakes), black pepper, chili pepper, sugar, and garlic for a similar effect.
  • Yellow Onion:  You could use Red onion too if you wanted, but I like the sweet flavor of the yellow onion.
  • Garlic:  I like to use fresh garlic, but feel free to use the garlic powder too if you are out.
  • Oil:  When cooking burgers, we tend to favor canola oil, but you could also use butter or olive oil.

For the Cheese Sauce

  • Butter
  • Mushrooms
  • Beef Broth
  • Milk
  • Swiss Cheese
  • Salt and Pepper

For the Sliders:

  • Kings Hawaiian Rolls – We like to use the Kings Hawaiin Rolls for the bun portion of the recipe.  They are perfectly sweet, but not too sweet that they pair nicely with the seasoned butter on the outside. Or, you can make your own homemade Hawaiian Rolls!
  • Butter Mixture:  This is what really takes the whole recipe over the top.  To make the butter mixture, you will need garlic salt, salt, pepper, and sesame seeds
  • Swiss Cheese Slices:  I know there are not a ton of options in this area, but since we are going to add two separate layers of cheese, we tend to go for the square, thinner version of the swiss cheese slices.  If you want these extra cheesy, you could use the thick cut version as well.

    Two of my favorite ingredients in this one–mushrooms and Swiss cheese. I can’t wait to try it!!

    • Amanda Rettke says:

      When you do let me know what you think! <3

  • Laurie Luper says:

    No mention when the milk is added. Assuming it’s added when making the cheese sauce?! Sounds like a fabulous recipe.

    • Amanda Rettke says:

      Whoops! Right before the cheese for the cheese sauce.

  • sharon says:

    I thought it was very good but if people don’t know it they should pour the grease out after cooking the hamburger.
    I would put 1 cup of onions instead of 1/2 cup, a bit more Worcester sauce. otherwise it was great but you do need a knife and fork.

    • Amanda Rettke says:

      Good point! Yes, definitely drain the beef. I will make a note of that for others. 🙂 We don’t use a knife and fork, but I think we just love these darn sliders so much we can’t help but dive in. 🙂

  • Sharon says:

    All of your recipes are great I take them home to Canada on vacation to share with my Grand Children who love them I will also be looking on line while I am there for more.

  • cindie chalik says:

    I made this for my husband and I and it was fantastic! We did need to eat it with a knife and fork, but that helped us savor it that much more! I will not hesitate to make it again (and again, and again!!!)

  • Sherill Stewart says:

    Yummy im making this tonight

  • Katie Obrien says:

    Not printer friendly.

  • Dave Fromme says:

    I made this recipe tonight and it turned out fantastic! I tweaked the seasonings a bit for my taste and omitted the sesame seeds. One tip I would pass on. When you remove the foil at the end, switch to the broiler for the last 5 minutes. It browns up the roll tops much better, and that makes them easier to pick up.

  • Betsy says:

    do you think it would work to make these up the day before refrigerate and bake the next day?

  • Rachel L says:

    These are delish! I use two containers of fresh mushrooms and half the butter in them. I think next tine I will do half garlic salt and half garlic powder In the butter topping as they are a tad salty. I’ve made them twice and we love them!

  • Shannon says:

    I just wanted to say that I have made this multiple times and it’s my kid’s favorite thing to eat! It is so good! They won’t eat burgers much but they get excited when I make this and eat every bit of it.

  • Tammy Griffin says:

    This looks yummy but how could I make it keto friendly?

  • Caroline Buckley says:

    My grandson says yummy on these different slidersI have followed your recipe are teriffic will make strawberry bars tomorrow thank you sending to my emails you are a helper in fixing our meals

  • Janine Doyle says:

    Good recipe. Would cut salt in half, double Worcestershire but very tasty meal!


    This recipe is awesome. Made them the first time tonight. My husband and I loved them.

  • Vyckie says:

    We don’t care for mushrooms. Has anyone made these without mushrooms? Thanks!

  • Ami says:

    This was yummy….I make a similar slider at camp every year… but I actually do a smashed huge Patty on a large baking sheet instead of loose meat.. my sauce is similar but I love this sauce too..

  • Patricia says:

    Very tasty but wybtoo much fat! I would definitely drain the beef after cooking, and only use half the butter to cook the mushrooms. Also, Imwould use parchment paper in the bottom of my baking pan because mine got too brown and hard on the bottom. Also needed a knife and fork to eat!

  • Judi says:

    That mushroom sauce looks so good. Instead of swiss cheese that I do not like, I would use provolone cheese. That alone without the hamburger sounds like a delicious sandwich. The hamburger does also but just the mushroom sauce alone got my mouth a watering for some. Can’t wait to try it.

  • Tashia Roffey says:

    Well, these were a hit!!! Delicious as they are, but I might lighten the butter up a bit next time, just to feel a little better about myself. My husband is already looking forward to the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

  • Debra Lucius says:

    Did I miss how much hamburger meat should be used?

  • Gail says:

    Way to salty. 1tsp of seasoned salt is more like it.
