French Dip Sliders

Friday, October 20, 2017
 I have been in a meal rut.  I'm trying really hard to cook most nights and make a little bit more so I can pack several lunches for myself throughout the week.  I've made it to mid October and so far I have done pretty good about not stopping to grab fast food b/c I lack a plan.  BUT.....I've sort of run out of things I wanted to try, so I went on a hunt.  I found a this recipe at Chelsea'sMessyApron.  It sounded good, but pinterest has been a cruel cruel liar in the past.  This time.  This time, pinterest (and Chelsea) hit it out of the ball park.  I did make some adjustments b/c I knew in the past with the ham version of these it could be a little TOO buttery (words I never thought I'd say).  I also don't like tons of meat, so I adjusted that as well.  See recipe below.  Now I need to go exploe every slider recipe on pinterest. 
French Dip Sliders
Sandwich Ingredients
 2 T of softened butter, 1 pkg Hawaiian sweet rolls (12 total), 1/2 lb deli roast beef (mine was more on the rare side since it was going to bake more, and I asked for it to be thinly sliced), 12 slices of provolon cheese slices, 1 1/2 c. french fried onions
Seasoning Ingredients
4 T butter, 1 pkt of Au Jus seasoning mix (divided), 1/2 t. Worcestershire sauce, 1 1/2 T sesame seeds, 1/4 t. onion powder, 1/4 t seasoning salt, 1/4 t. dried minced garlic
1.  Heat oven to 350 and butter the bottom of a pan. 
2.  Cut the rolls in half without seperating the rolls. 
3. Place bread bottom in pan.  Spread out 6 pieces of cheese, your meat, french fried onions, and 6 more slices of cheese.  Add top to rolls. 
4.  Stir together 1 1/2 t. of the Au Jus mix, butter, Worcestershire, sesame seeds, onion powder, seasoning salts, and garlic.  Brush over the top of the rolls. 
5.  Bake for 15-18 minutes.  Use a sharp knife to seperate the rolls. 
6.  While sliders cool some, add the rest of the Au Jus mix to a pan with 2 c. of cold water.  Stir and bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer and allow to thicken.  Serve with sandwiches.
