Spaghetti Sandwich is a carb-lovers dream come true! These sandwiches are so easy to make and are a great way to use leftover spaghetti! Feel free to add meatballs if you’d like, but no matter what add plenty of cheese! I assemble these sandwiches ahead of time and bake them when we’re ready to eat!
My kids most requested birthday meal is spaghetti. It has been their favorite for years, they beg for it, and they think I’m amazing when I make it for them..and that’s one of the reasons I like spaghetti. I need my kids to think I’m amazing for some reason, even if it is for my spaghetti making abilities. Whatever works right? I’ve had this spaghetti grilled cheese sandwich kicking around in my head for a while now. In my head, I knew it was going to be amazing. After all, it’s really just garlic bread, spaghetti, and lots of cheese wrapped up in one scrumptious little slider.
This past week I made them, and I made them again. Then my kids asked me to make them and stick them in the freezer so they could pull a slider out to throw in their school lunches. While we were eating my boys were devouring their sliders and weren’t saying a word. It was only mmms, ooohs, and ahhhs. I knew I was onto something if not one person was complaining. They agreed that Easy Spaghetti Sliders just bumped spaghetti out of the running for a most requested birthday meal. And that’s saying something!
Cut rolls open. Layer either grated cheese or sliced mozzarella cheese on the bottom.
Next, add a spoonful of spaghetti.
Next comes another layer of cheese, yes it’s cheesy!
I made them twice in one week and took pictures both times. So don’t let it throw you that this picture has grated cheese and the other picture has sliced cheese. Either will work just fine. The important part is that you add cheese! Put the top on the sliders. Brush the tops with melted butter.
Lastly, sprinkle the tops with grated Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and garlic salt.
This Spaghetti Sandwich looks just as tempting from the inside as they do from the outside! Check out those layers of melted cheese, hearty spaghetti, and crusty garlic bread! Once you make them you are going to find yourself making them again, and again. All the leftover spaghetti in the fridge ended up wrapped up in this savory little slider! And to think they are so easy! You gotta make em!
Easy Spaghetti Sliders
- Spaghetti sauce and spaghetti noodles mixed together
- Rolls can be hamburger buns, kaiser rolls, or other roll type bread
- Mozzarella cheese grated or sliced
- butter melted
- Parmesan cheese grated
- garlic salt to taste
- Italian seasoning to taste
- Before I start sharing the instructions for this recipe I need to explain a little bit about it. I make five sliders at a time because there are five people in my family. I'm not listing specif amounts in this recipe, so maybe it's more like an idea than a recipe. I'm not listing the amounts because this recipe is super flexible in the amount of servings you can make. Make a few, or make a lot. The steps are the same, the ingredients are the same, just in different amounts. Please don't send me hate mail telling me that I didn't list the amount of butter, or how many rolls to use in this recipe. I know I didn't list it. That means you get some artistic license with this recipe and get to choose some of those things for yourself. If you want your slider to be piled a mile high with spaghetti do it! All I'm saying is no matter what, add lots of cheese! Okay, thanks for understanding. Here's what you do!
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray.
- Cut rolls in half and set on baking sheet. Remove top half and layer cheese on the bottom half.
- Next, add a spoonful of spaghetti. I already had leftover spaghetti in the fridge and used that. If you don't have leftover spaghetti use your favorite spaghetti recipe to make spaghetti. Of course I added ground beef to my spaghetti but do it how you like it.
- Top the spaghetti with more cheese.
- Put the tops of the rolls back on the bottoms. Brush tops with melted butter. Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, and Italian seasoning on the tops of the rolls. Just add how much you would add to garlic bread. Once again, this is a little bit of personal preference, just sprinkle to taste.
- Bake uncovered for about 20-30 minutes, or until the spaghetti is warm and cheese is melted. Time may vary a little depending on how big your sliders are, or on how much spaghetti you piled on.
- Thanks for understanding that this is kinda of a recipe, and kind of a really good idea! Either way, you are going to love every bite of these sandwiches and wonder what life was like before you knew them!
