Servings 12 sliders


  • 1 dozen Hawaiian Rolls or slider buns {I used King’s Savory Hawaiian Rolls}
  • 36-48 pepperoni slices
  • 1 1/2 cups Bolognese sauce or very thick meat sauce
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 T unsalted butter
  • garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 T chopped parsley


  • Divide rolls into 2 sections of 6 each. Half sections horizontally. Spread bottom halves with a thick layer of Bolognese sauce or thick marinara. Sprinkle with half of cheese.
  • Place pepperoni between paper towels and microwave for 20 seconds to render fat.
  • Divide slices between the 2 roll bottom sections, placing 3-4 slices of pepperoni on each individual roll bottom. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and replace top sections. Carefully cut out individual rolls along bakery lines. Place rolls close together in a foil lined baking pan.
  • Melt butter and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. Brush roll tops with butter and sprinkle with parsley. Cover and refrigerate until baking if desired.
  • Bake covered for 15 minutes, then uncover and bake another 15-20 minutes until heated through and golden.
  • Serve warm. Reheat leftover rolls for 20 seconds each in microwave
