While we are sad there won't be a Selection Sunday this weekend, we still have a delicious dish for you to try while staying in - these gooey Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders. These little beauties are a slam dunk for dinner, and they're snap to throw together. Bake them, build them, slice them, devour them!
We can promise these sliders (or any other dish featuring 1 Source ground beef) are a sure-fire way to brighten your time in this weekend. This ground beef is unlike any other. It's all the juicy steak cuts ground together in one delicious package. A champion product for your family and guests alike!
Bacon Cheeseburger slider bake
Yield 24 Sliders
Prep Time 20 Minutes
Cook Time 25 Minutes
Total Time 45 Minutes
2 (12 count) pkgs. Hawaiian rolls
24 slices white American cheese
2 lbs. 1 Source ground beef
1 small yellow onion, chopped
Salt & pepper, to taste
¾ c. ketchup
1 c. sweet pickles, chopped
16 slices bacon, cooked crisp
¾ c. butter, melted
3 Tbsp. light brown sugar
3 tsp. Worcestershire
1 ½ Tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Without separating rolls, cut in half horizontally with a bread knife. Lay bottom halves in two lightly greased 9x13 pans. Place 6 slices of cheese on each half. Bake for 5 minutes. Set aside.
Meanwhile, in a medium-sized skillet, over medium heat, brown the ground beef and onions, crumbling beef with a spoon (about 8-10 minutes or until meat is browned and cooked through). Add salt and pepper, ketchup and sweet pickles. Cook until caramelized, about 5 minutes.
Continue building the sliders. Spoon half the meat mixture over each pan of rolls. Place 6 slices of cheese on each. Place 8 slices of bacon on each. Replace top halves of rolls.
In a small bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, Worcestershire and Dijon mustard. Pour half of glaze over each pan of rolls. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Let sit for 2 minutes. Using a stiff spatula, remove bakes to a cutting board. Cut sliders into individual sandwiches, and arrange on serving platters. Enjoy!
