Sheet Pan Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders
How to make Grill quality bacon cheeseburger sliders in the oven.
One of my favorite past times in the summer is to grill out. It’s not always feasible to do though. The main reason, and I hate to admit it but I will, I stink at grilling.
Yes, all shame aside, I fully admit I fail in this highly celebrated method of cooking. Therefore, Grilling is mans work at The Buttered Home. Big D doesn’t mind. He loves to cook almost as much as I do. The cleaning, eh, not so much. That is why grilling is perfect for him.
There are a lot of times though, grilling just isn’t in the cards. Rain, needing to feed a big crowd unexpectedly, Big D being out of town, just to name a few. These Bacon Cheeseburger sliders are the perfect answer to all of those issues. AND they are easily done on a sheet pan in the oven.
The secret to get a great grilled flavor without all of the smoke is the Southern Flavor seasoning. It provides a little grilled flavor as well as salt and pepper. So I won’t keep you waiting any longer, here is your cookout in the kitchen recipe!
~ Ingredients ~
2 pounds lean ground beef
3 tablespoons Southern Flavor
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup chopped onion
10-12 strips of uncooked bacon
12 slices of cheese. I used Havarti, Pepper Jack and Cheddar
1/4 cup Duke’s Mayo
1/4 cup Dijon Mustard
1 tablespoon prepared Horseradish
12 pack of large dinner rolls or slider buns
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Lettuce, Tomato, Pickles or whatever burger toppings you desire
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl mix ground beef, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and onion. Mix well with hands. Divide mixture into two equal parts.
Press one half of beef mixture on a lightly greased sheet pan. Place cheese on top in any pattern you desire. Next press the last half of the beef mixture into another layer on top.
Top with strips of uncooked bacon tucking ends underneath meat. Bake for 30-40 minutes until it reaches your desired level of doneness. Pictured is 30 minutes for me. Make sure bacon is done and crispy on top.
Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes.
~ To Finish ~
Mix Dijon, Mayo and horseradish until smooth and creamy. Cut rolls, if not already pre cut, in the middle to form two halves.
Spread Sauce on top and bottom. Using two large spatulas, carefully place super meat patty on top and place top bun on.
Using a large knife, follow the lines of the rolls and cut accordingly.
Top with your favorite Cheeseburger toppings and Enjoy! We love to make these PICKLES and dress these burgers with them!
