1/2 - cup (or more!) dried onion flakes
2 - pounds ground chuck (I think I only use 1 pound!!)
Salt, pepper, garlic powder
6 - slices American cheese
12 - small party rolls (I use Hawaiian Sweet rolls)
dill pickle slices
Evenly spread the onions on the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Gently press the ground beef on top of the onion flakes. Press evenly making one giant patty.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. (meat will shrink!)
Top with cheese, return to oven for 2 more minutes. Remove from oven, let set 5 minutes then cut into patties (3 down 4 across total of 12!).
Slice open and separate each party roll. Place bottom of rolls on a large platter. Using a spatula lift patty with onion layer onto each bun bottom.
Top each slider with a pickle slice then the bun lid. Serve immediately. Makes 12 sliders.
