There’s nothing I like to hear more than the words “easy” when relating to getting a quick meal together for my family. I bake everything with love and finding a meal that I can make with love, but easily, is always a good thing. We are busy and always running in different directions. I love it when I can easily throw a dish together or change up an existing dish to create something new, and that’s where these Easy Italian Oven Baked Sliders come in. When I can include lots of melty cheese, it makes that dish all the better! We are a cheese loving family and most meals have cheese incorporated in some way.
Borden® Cheese is our favorite! Everything is better with Borden® Cheese. It is full of great flavor and perfect to use because there are so many different products to choose from!
I found my Borden® Cheese at Shop ‘N Save, but check out this store locator to find Borden® Cheese near you! It’s located in the Refrigerated Dairy Section. So easy to find!I always stock up on several different kinds of cheese (Borden® Cheese shreds, Borden® Cheese slices and Borden® Cheese chunks), but for this easy meal we used Borden® Cheese Provolone slices and Borden® Cheese Gouda slices. They complement each other wonderfully and add a melty, ooey, gooey goodness to these easy-to-make sandwiches. We refer to these as sliders because once you cut them, they resemble Italian Oven Baked Sliders because of their size. (Plus if you really wanted to, you could use a slider bun instead.)
But anyway, let’s get started.
Are you ready to make these Italian Oven Baked Sliders?
What you need: (printable version below)
- 2 cans crescent dough sheets (though you can also use regular crescent dough)
- Several different types of Italian meat – 8-16 slices of each. We used Cotto Salami, Hard Salami, Pepperoni, Ham, and Prosciutto.
- Two different types of Borden® Cheese. We used Borden® Cheese Provolone slices and Borden® Cheese Gouda slices.
- Roasted Red Peppers and Tomatoes, Olives, Italian Seasoning, and Pepperoncini (optional)
- 3 large eggs, beaten
Okay time to assemble our Easy Italian Oven Baked Sliders
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Grab a 9×13 baking dish and spray it with some cooking spray. In the bottom of the dish, spread out your crescent dough sheet.
On top of the dough, start layering the meats in whatever order you choose. The reason I put 4-8 slices is because our ham slices were huge so we didn’t need more than four to cover the entire layer. Yet, the hard salami was smaller so it took 8 slices to cover the layer. It’s going to depend on the meat you choose and how big the individual slices are.
After you have made one layer of each of the meats, you’re going to layer the Borden® Cheese Provolone slices. We used 6 slices.
On top of that, sprinkle some Italian Seasoning, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, olives, and pepperoncinis, if desired. You should have something that looks like this at this point.
Now we are going to do it again. Layer the meats again however you would like.
Now layer the Borden® Cheese Gouda slices. We used 6 of those, as well.
Add more veggies and seasoning, and then top with the last dough sheet.
Take your beaten egg and pour it over the top of the dish. Use a pastry brush to make sure all the dough on top gets covered. Now it will look something like this.
Cover the dish with foil and pop it in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove it at that time, and remove the foil.
Bake for an additional 20-25 minutes watching it towards the end so it doesn’t get overcooked on top.
Remove from oven, and allow it to sit and cool for about 15 minutes before slicing into sliders and eat up!
Look at all those delicious layers and all that melty cheese. It’s always so hard to wait to cut into it, but it’s totally worth it when you do!
One Italian Oven Baked Slider gone. Don’t worry, the whole pan disappeared that night.
Once you start slicing into it, you can really see that melty cheese and all those layers that make up the Italian Oven Baked Sliders!
So much cheesy love.
