American | Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders

Revised on January 23, 2012

This was delicious and juicy. I wanted to make an all-American burger, so I used beef, Applewood smoked bacon, caramelized red onions, and sharp cheddar cheese.

Yield: as many as you want

bacon cheeseburger sliders


mini hamburger buns, split and lightly grilled

Applewood smoked bacon, cut in half, cooked

caramelized red onions

sharp cheddar cheese slices

ground chuck 80% lean

kosher sea salt, to taste

freshly ground pepper, to taste

ketchup, to taste

yellow mustard, to taste



To caramelized the onions: thinly slice the onions and cook low and slow in olive oil, salt onions while cooking. Cook until soft and caramelized. These take about 45 minutes.

To make flat bacon: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On a parchment lined sheet pan, lay the bacon out so that it does not overlap. Place a second sheet pan on top of the bacon and cook until browned and crispy. This takes about 20 to 30 minutes.

To make burgers: Shape patties, season with salt and pepper. Grill 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending on thickness. At the very end, put cheese on and melt slightly.

To assemble: bottom bun, ketchup, mustard, meat, cheese, onions, bacon, and top bun. Eat!
