Filet Mignon Caprese Sliders

Filet Mignon Caprese Sliders are a great grilling option to consider for this summer’s barbecues.

We’ve got one Dad in our house, and he always requests filet mignon for his special day (Father’s Day).  I’ll give him that as we do love it, but we hardly ever buy it.  Filet mignon is a most-awesome cut of meat- so tender and perfect and usually quite expensive- so I have a solution for how to serve filet mignon without breaking the bank.  Turn it into sliders!  You can turn just one small filet mignon steak into about eight sliders.  So instead of feeding just one person, that filet mignon is going to make FOUR people quite happy.

Of course, you have to pair that filet mignon with the best rolls for sliders – Hawaiian Rolls. We are absolutely addicted to these soft, sweet rolls at our house.  My son the pre-teenager can happily down four of these in about 5 minutes, so when I buy them… I literally have to HIDE them until I’m ready to use them up for a meal!  They are great for little slider burgers too… or mini deli sandwiches… or just eating!  But they are perfect for summer BBQ’s- ready to eat right out of the package.  Anyone else love these rolls as much as I do??

How to make Filet Mignon Caprese Sliders:

So here’s what’s going on with my filet mignon sliders >> I grill the filet (just a drizzle of olive oil and a little salt and pepper), then slice the filet into slider-sized pieces.  Here’s the sequence for stacking:

  • Hawaiian Roll
  • bacon
  • burrata or mozzarella
  • basil leaf
  • piece of filet
  • tomato slice
  • Hawaiian Roll

They are the absolute best sliders ever.  The filet… oh my gosh, it is super tender and easy to bite into.  The burrata acts as both cheese and sauce for the slider (no real sauce of any kind is necessary), the bacon adds a wonderful crunch and flavor component to the whole thing, and the Hawaiian rolls are soft and squishy and sweet and perfect.  I would think that any Dad would be super happy to be served filet mignon slider-style for Father’s Day.  And these are perfect for barbecues all summer long too.

Filet Mignon Caprese Sliders

The best gourmet sliders!
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings 8 sliders
Calories 369kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 pound filet mignon steak
  • 8 Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, sliced in half
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced into 8 slices
  • 8 slices burrata cheese or fresh mozzarella (will need enough for 8 sliders)
  • 8 large basil leaves
  • 3 slices bacon, cooked and cut into thirds

Instructions

  • Preheat your grill to medium. Drizzle your filet steak with a little olive oil, kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Grill steak on both sides until you have reached your desired doneness. I prefer to take it off when it's just beyond medium rare (still a little pink inside). Let rest on a cutting board for a few minutes, then slice into slider-sized pieces.
  • Assemble the sliders: on the bottom half of the rolls, layer tomato > filet > basil leaf > burrata > bacon, then top with the top halves of the rolls. Secure with cocktail sticks, if desired. Serve and eat immediately.

Notes

  • *Burrata cheese can be found in the gourmet cheese section of your market. It comes shaped as a "ball" floating in tub full of water (just like fresh mozzarella). It's wonderful and creamy, but you can also substitute sliced fresh mozzarella for this recipe.
