French Dip Sliders will melt right in your mouth! These are truly the best version you can have of french dip sandwiches all covered in melty cheese and buttery rolls!
The french dip sandwich is a true classic but here we have turned that classic favorite into a delicious slider to feed a crowd!
This is the perfect meal for busy nights or a great addition to holiday dinner yummies! You really can’t go wrong with the combination of tender roast beef , gooey cheese and buttery rolls!
I think my personal favorite part of these sliders is how the bottoms get toasted while soaking up all that butter sauce, so decadent!!
Do I need to use the Au jus?
These sliders are so good they really don’t even need the au jus but it definitely add a delicious touch and super fun and yummy to dip in!
You can use dried thyme in place of fresh or any herbs you would like.
Oregano, rosemary, or dried Italian seasoning would work too.
Use half as much dried herbs as fresh.
What type of meats can I use?
Use leftover pot roast, Mississippi roast, or any leftover beef you have on hand, you really can’t go wrong with this recipe.
These are the perfect appetizer for the holidays or an incredible way to use up leftover meat from the holiday dinner!
These make a wonderful lunch for throughout the week as well! pure comfort food!
Everything is put together in one baking dish, super easy! all you do is pull them apart after baking and dig in!
What type of rolls should I use?
There are only a few ingredients in this recipe- but one of the most important components are the rolls! You will really want Hawaiian sweet rolls for this recipe! They have the perfect flavor to compliment the sliders as well as being sturdy to not get soggy with the buttery mixture on top!
This meal is great because you can make it with fresh ingredients or leftovers from the holidays. If the kids get really hungry after school and you’re at a loss for what to make them, this is a great meal option. Really, there is no bad time to make sliders!
Do you have to eat these sliders warm?
If you like cold sandwiches, these wouldn’t taste terrible. I have been known to eat one right out of the fridge lol They do seem to taste better right out of the oven.

French Dip Sliders
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 2 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 12 sweet rolls
- 10 slices provolone cheese
- 14 ounces sliced deli roast beef
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 & 1/2 tablespoons dried onion soup mix
- 1 packet au jus gravy mix
- 3 cups water
- fresh chopped parsley for garnish, optional
- In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter.
- Add the onions and coat in the butter. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 12-15 minutes until the onions are soft and browned but not burnt.
- Add the thyme, salt, and pepper, stir to combine, take off the heat, and set aside.
- Preheat the oven to 350°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 an 11x7 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, you want to make sure the foil is not touching the tops of the rolls and bake for 25 minutes.
- Take the foil off 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.
