These French dip sliders are Hawaiian rolls stuffed with roast beef, caramelized onions, and cheese. Super easy to make and perfect for a large crowd!
▢3 tbsp unsalted butter
▢1 onion thinly sliced
▢1/2 tsp sugar
▢2 tsp fresh thyme
▢12 sweet rolls
▢10 slices provolone cheese
▢14 ounces sliced deli roast beef
▢1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
▢1 1/2 tbsp dried onion soup mix
▢1 packet au jus gravy mix
▢3 cups water
▢salt and pepper to taste
Add some butter to a skillet and melt over medium heat. Add the onions and sugar, cook for 15 minutes stirring frequently. Season with salt, pepper, and thyme. Remove it from the heat and set it aside.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Take the rolls out of the package, leaving the rolls intact. Take a large knife and slice the rolls across so you have the tops and bottom separated. Place the bottom, cut side up into a baking dish. Top with half of the cheese. Add the roast beef. Top with the onions, spreading them out. Add the remaining cheese, then add the tops of the rolls on top.
In a small bowl stir together the melted butter and onion soup mix. I like to brush this mixture on top of the rolls to make sure it’s evenly distributed but you can just pour the butter sauce on top.
Cover loosely with foil, make sure the foil is not touching the tops of the rolls, and bake for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 5 minutes to brown the rolls.
While the rolls are baking, prepare the au jus per the package directions with the water. Serve the rolls with an optional garnish of parsley and au jus on the side for dipping.


You don’t need the au jus mix! These sliders are just as good without the onion mix and au jus. Just the roast beef, caramelized onions, and provolone cheese are incredible when served on rolls.
