Football season is just around the corner and what better handheld treat than sliders? Give your usual sliders a delicious twist with Gluten and Dairy Free Loaded Cuban Sliders.
Sliders are the ultimate gameday food to entertain with, such as my Gluten and Dairy Free Supreme Pizza Siders. They’re always a crowd pleaser and easy to make. They also come together almost as fast as halftime.
If you’re looking for ideas on how to use your leftover pulled pork, Gluten and Dairy Free Loaded Cuban Sliders are a fun way to give it new and bold flavors. Perfect for game day eats or just a quick and easy lunch or dinner, these are sure to become a favorite.
All great sliders start with picking the right bun. For this recipe I used Canyon Bakehouse Brioche Style Sweet Rolls. These light and airy rolls are Gluten Free, Dairy Free, and soy free. Their soft and chewy texture makes them the ideal base.
A caress of yellow mustard across the buns creates the canvas for the stacks of flavor. Smoky, juicy, tender pulled pork comes next, followed by slices of salty and savory ham. A crown of Dairy Free Swiss cheese gets melted over the top. The final touch you can never forget on any Cuban sandwich, the pickles. I love using Wickles Pickles for that sweet and spicy pop.
The sliders get brushed with Dairy Free butter before being baked in the oven. Warm, melty, and oh so savory, these will be the hit of game day!

These fully stacked sliders come together as fast as halftime!
These sliders come together quickly. Laying out all of your ingredients into place helps the process go even faster. Preheat your oven to 375. Make sure you have the right size baking dish out. I like to use a 7×10 for this.
- Stack it Up
Build your sandwiches. Spread mustard onto the bottom buns. Top with pulled pork, followed by the ham. Add your Dairy Free Swiss cheese and then the pickles. Put the top buns on. Spread the Dairy Free butter over the top of each bun.
- Into the Ove
Bake your sliders for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the tops of the buns are golden brown.
- Touch Down
Serve your sliders with your favorite sides, such as Dairy Free Caramelized Onion Dip with Potato Chips.
Gluten and Dairy Free Loaded Cuban Sliders are a great way to use up any leftover pulled pork you may have. The next time you smoke a pork shoulder or butt, freeze some. This can also be made with any leftover pork you made in your Instapot or crockpot.
