BALSAMIC BEEF SLIDERS
- Heat oven to 350ᵒF. Spray a CORNINGWARE® 3 QUART OBLONG BAKER with cooking spray. Arrange bun bottoms in casserole, leaving a little space between each bun and sides of dish. Top with beef, some of the braised vegetables and cheeses.
- In small bowl, mix butter, mustard, vinegar and Italian seasoning; brush half of the mixture over cut sides of bun tops. Place on sandwiches; brush remaining butter mixture over bun tops. Cover baking dish with foil. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and sandwiches are hot. Serve immediately.
Make-Ahead Directions: Assemble the sandwiches up to 2 hours before serving, but wait to brush the bun tops with butter mixture until just before baking.
