Can you believe the BIG GAME is just next weekend? It’s not a Super Bowl without some snacks, right? I love sliders because they’re small and easy to eat for a crowd. I decided to make football-shaped sliders, and it is super easy! You just use Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry as the “buns”! So check out the step-by-step pictures and recipe below. No matter WHO you are rooting for, your guests (whether just family or a whole host of friends) will LOVE these easy and delicious sliders!

You simply fold out a puff pastry sheet (thawed). Use a football (or oval) shaped cutter to create mini football shapes. Each football shape will be cut in half after baking so you will have one “slider bun” per football shape! I was able to cut out 12 footballs per 1 sheet of puff pastry! Use the same cutter for sliced cheese. Roma tomatoes provide a perfect oval shape when sliced so I chose those! I also added in red onion and arugula. You can choose your favorite slider topping or create a “slider bar” for your guests with all the fixin’s! Find the full recipe below!
When making the actual beef sliders, use the cookie cutter (be sure to wash after handling) in the hamburger meat to create football shapes! It’s that easy. Then – assemble!
