I wish I would have made this recipe and posted it sooner. Because everyone loves to have burgers before and for Labor Day weekend. But I was too slow. I hope you can still enjoy this recipe, along with the last few days of summer. Fall starts in one week, and then along with the changing leaves, the food that I desire might change as well. Because colder weather means a lot more soups, casseroles and hot chocolate. And I hope you will enjoy those things along with us.
But don't rush off to fall too quickly.
We've got a few more days of summer and we can eat summer foods for a few days longer too.
Plus, sliders are adorable. So even if its not summer weather, these things are cute enough and delicious enough that you'll want to make them year round.
1.5 lbs ground beef **
Seasonings (you can read here how we like to season our burgers)
4-5 strips of bacon
12 dinner rolls
shredded cheddar cheese
Special Equipment helpful: sliders basket
**we actually made our own ground beef with out meat grinder and it was absolutely divine, but regular lean ground beef is good too
1. Mix ground beef with seasonings.
2. Stuff ground beef into spots on slider basket, or form the sliders using your hands, separate the meat into 12 equal sized mini burgers.
3. Grill for about 10 minutes, flipping occasionally, until they reach the inner temperature of 155-160 degrees.
4. Meanwhile cook bacon in a pan over medium heat until crispy.
5. Break each slice of bacon into four pieces.
6. Cut dinner rolls in half.
7. Take bottom half of dinner roll and stack with meat, 2 pieces of bacon, about 1.5 TBS guacamole, a handful of shredded cheese and the top of the roll.
The guacamole, bacon and meat had enough flavor that we didn't need to add any ketchup, but I dipped a few bites in some, and it still tasted delicious. Either way, this is definitely something you'll want to make.
Servings: Approximately 4 servings ***
