  • 15 Hawaiian slider rolls like a sandwich, cut in half
  • 16 ounces fresh Stella Mozzarella Cheese sliced into 15 slices
  • 4-5 roma tomatoes sliced into 15 slices
  • 15-20 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup prepared pesto
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 TBS grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp poppy seeds
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • non stick spray


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  2. In a large baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray, place the bottom halves of the rolls into the dish. Add pesto and spread it evenly over the rolls. Add a slice of mozzarella to each roll (about 15), then a slice of tomato, then 1-2 basil leaves depending on size. Place the tops of the rolls on top.

  3. In a small bowl combine melted butter, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and poppy seeds, mix with a fork or whisk to combine. Drizzle over the tops of the rolls, using a brush or back of spoon to distribute.

  4. Cover the baking dish with foil, then place into oven. Cook for 10 minutes. Carefully remove foil and place back into oven for 3-5 minutes, or until tops are lightly toasted and you can see cheese is melted.

  5. Use a spatula to remove the sliders and serve immediately.
