How Can I Make The Best Cheeseburger Sliders?

To make the absolute best cheeseburger sliders, follow these instructions:

  1. Cook the meat along with the onions, bell pepper, and garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat until fully cooked. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. To the meat, add the diced tomatoes (drained), Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper to taste. Continue cooking until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 5-7 mins.
  3. Without separating them, slice the buns in half and place the bottom half in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Add 1 cup of shredded cheddar evenly on top of the bun bottoms and bake them for 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted (only the bottoms).
  4. Spoon the meat mixture over the melted cheese, and sprinkle the remaining cup of cheese evenly over the meat.
  5. Place ½ strip of cooked crispy bacon over each bun and place the top of the buns over the bacon.
  6. Mix the ingredients for the glaze in a microwave safe dish and microwave until the butter has melted.

Notes

  1. Be careful when cutting the buns. Try not to separate them and not to cut them too near the bottom.
  2. Add hot sauce to the meat mixture for spicy sliders.
  3. Try to cook as much liquid as possible out of the meat mixture so you don’t get soggy sliders.
