Hawaiian sweet Roll Cheeseburger

· Meal Planning Inspiration


  • 1lb ground beef (or 2lbs for thicker burger)
  • 1 pack Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
  • 6 slices cheese of choice! (We used cheddar or American but you could use any cheese you prefer ie. Swiss, pepper jack, etc.)
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Pepper
  • Seasoning of choice for meat (I like to add 1 tsp. Garlic powder)


  • 2 tbs. Butter
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
  • Directions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375° F (190 C)
  2. Take white tray of buns out of bag (if using King’s Hawaiian Rolls).
  3. Using parchment paper, unroll enough paper to make it an inch or so larger than the size of the tray of rolls.
  4. While you have the rolls in front of you, using a bread knife, and keeping the rolls connected, cut the rolls in half long ways, making a giant top layer and bottom buns layer
  5. Set rolls aside, and place raw ground beef on parchment paper and flatten to the size of the parchment paper making a rectangle shape. Place in rimmed baking sheet or cake pan.
  6. Season meat with S + P and I like to do garlic powder at this time as well.
  7. Bake at 375° for 15-17 min or until juices run clear.

Now to make your garlic butter topping while meat is baking :)

  1. In a small microwave safe dish, melt butter then add garlic salt. Stir to combine and set aside for assembly
  2. Burger Assembly
  3. Once the burger has finished cooking, remove pan from the oven. (Leave oven on to toast buns at the end)
  4. Carefully, with a large spatula holding the beef, tilt pan and drain excess grease back into the pan.
  5. Then, place bottom layer of rolls, upside down on top of beef, and flip and transfer burgers to a clean baking sheet. This will result in ground beef and bottom layer of rolls on the new baking sheet with the parchment paper facing up.
  6. Remove the parchment paper and throw away.
  7. Place your 6 slices of cheese on top of ground beef.
  8. Next, place the top bun layer on top of cheese
  9. With a basting brush, brush top of buns with your garlic butter mixture.
  10. Place back into the oven for 3-4 minutes.
  11. Remove from oven very carefully as it will be hot. And now cut your burgers into sliders with a knife! Voila!
