Full recipe:
Italian Sliders are the perfect mini sandwiches for game day, tailgating, holiday parties and potlucks. This recipe is a crowd pleaser! —TheFeatheredNester

What You'll Need
  • 24 ounces frozen parker house rolls
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 12 ounces provolone cheese slices
  • 10 ounces pepperoni slices
  • 10 ounces Italian salami slices
  • 1 piece egg
  • 1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning
  • sea salt
  1. Generously spray a low-sided baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange frozen rolls in a single layer, and let thaw (covered) in the fridge overnight, or on countertop for a few hours. Let them rise at room temperature until they have doubled in size.
  2. Preheat oven to 375º F.
  3. Bake the rolls for 12-14 minutes, until lightly golden on top. Remove from the oven and let them cool slightly so they are easier to handle. Cut rolls in half horizontally. Arrange the bottoms of the rolls back in a single layer in the baking dish.
  4. Spread a tablespoon of pizza sauce over the inside bottom of each of the rolls. Cover sauce with a round slice of provolone cheese, then Italian meat(s). For each of the mini sandwiches, I used three slices of pepperoni, turkey pepperoni, and salami.
  5. Add a tablespoon of pizza sauce to the inside tops of the rolls, then place a top onto each of the prepared roll bottoms. Brush egg wash on the tops of the rolls. Sprinkle each top with dried Italian seasoning and flake salt, if desired.
  6. Reduce oven heat to 350°F. Cover baking dish of Italian sliders with foil and bake at 350º for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese melts. Serve warm.
