Place the bottom half on a parchment-lined baking sheet.Spread ketchup on the buns. Arrange the swiss cheese slices over the buns, making sure the entire surface of the bread is covered.

Bake the sliders at 350 F for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melty. If the tops are browning too much before the cheese has melted, loosely tent the pan with aluminum foil.
