What to server with easy cheeseburger sliders?

We love serving a potato side dish or something that feels like fries with this cheeseburger sliders recipe. For potato-based sides, I recommend serving it with french fries, instant pot baked potatoesBlooming Potatoes, or Zesty Potatoes.

For a lower-carb option, I recommend serving hamburger sliders with Parmesan Zucchini Fries or Parmesan Zucchini Rounds. Honey lime fruit salad is a great kid-friendly side dish option.

Homemade dinner rolls for oven-baked cheeseburger sliders

I usually make my own dinner rolls to go with these sliders, but they can also be served with store bough dinner rolls. Grab the 30 minute dinner roll recipe here

Even if making the dinner rolls, this is still a 30 minute meal. It may stretch to 35-40 minutes if you aren’t farmiliar with roll making. Either way, it is still a very quick recipe. It is also a frugal recipe – especially if making your own rolls. 

Don’t want to make your own rolls? That’s okay! Just you use regular store-bought dinner rolls or Hawaiian sweet rolls.
