Whether you are hosting a back yard barbecue or simple looking for a twist on a beloved classic, these chili cheese dog sliders are a guaranteed hit. These mouthwatering mini sandwiches combines the nostalgic flavors of chili, melty cheese, and juicy hot dogs in a soft slider roll.

These would also be excellent for a game day gathering. I use King’s Hawaiian rolls for the base of these chili cheese dog sliders. I love the flavor, they are the perfect size, and they are nice and soft.


Just cut a package of slider rolls in half lengthwise, making a slab of tops and a slab of bottoms. Then top the bottoms with some shredded cheddar cheese.

Next comes the hot dogs. You will need to cut 6 good quality all beef hot dogs in half. My favorite brand to use in Ball Park. I am always please with the results when I use these hot dogs. Just be sure to lay them out so each slider gets some hot dog in it.

Next comes a good old can of chili. I usually grab a can of Nalley’s or Hormel brand. However, if you have some leftover homemdae chili, feel free to use that. Just be sure your recipe is on the thicker side. You don’t want to use a watery chili that will end up making your sliders soggy. No one wants a soggy slider!

Next, you sprinkle on another layer of shredded cheddar cheese. Then you can place the slab of tops on top. However, it doesn’t end there. You brush the tops of the sliders with some melted butter that is mixed with some garlic and dried parsley. This topping just ups the flavor factor for these sliders.

Now they bake in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minute. You just want to warm the sliders through and get that cheese nice and melty. Also, you want to check on the sliders for the last 5 minutes of cooking. You don”t want those sliders to get too toasty on the top. If they are looking more on the darker side, just lay a piece of foil over the top of the pan. This will prevent the tops from getting too brown on the top. You are gonna love these little mini morsels of chili cheese dog goodness.
