Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders

This recipe is a win-win for family supper, church socials, or any sports crowd. Designed to fill two pans, consider cutting this recipe in half if you're cooking for 3-4 people.



2 packages (17 ounces each )

Hawaiian sweet rolls

4 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided

2 pounds ground beef

1 cup chopped onion

1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced

tomatoes with garlic and onion, drained

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

3/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon pepper

24 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


1 cup butter, cubed

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons sesame seeds


1. Preheat oven to 350°. Without separating rolls, cut each package of rolls horizontally in half; arrange bottom halves in 2 greased 13x9-in. baking pans. Sprinkle each pan of rolls with 1 cup cheese. Bake until cheese is melted, 3-5 minutes.

2. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until beef is no longer pink and onion is tender, breaking up beef into crumbles, 6-8 minutes; drain. Stir in tomatoes, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until combined, 1-2 minutes.

3. Spoon beef mixture evenly over rolls; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Top with bacon. Replace tops. For glaze, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard. Microwave, covered, on high until butter is melted, stirring occasionally. Pour over rolls; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake, uncovered, until golden brown and heated through, 20-25 minutes.

Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked sandwiches; prepare and freeze glaze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Pour glaze over buns and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake sandwiches as directed, increasing time by 10-15 minutes, until cheese is melted and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°.
