Smokey Mesquite BBQ Beef Sliders.

These are tasty little gems and it is very easy to slide 2 or 3 of these into your mouth! Kraft Canada used to sell a kit with the seasoning and cheese but they stopped making it so I made my own version. The burger is well seasoned and juicy and then it is  topped with a yummy bacon/onion BBQ sauce. Cheese is added and and then melted. Serve with a salad.

Smokey Mesquite BBQ Beef Sliders

Makes 12 sliders

Ingredients for Beef Patties:

1 ½ pounds ground beef

½ cup bread crumbs

2 teaspoons Mesquite seasoning

2 Tablespoons BBQ sauce

1 egg

1 cup grated cheddar or monterey jack cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil

Combine beef, crumbs, seasoning, bbq sauce, egg and cheese.

Form into 12 patties. Make a indent into the centre of each patty so they don’t turn into meatballs. It also ensures the patty cooks evenly through.

Place onto baking sheet and cook for about 20 minutes or until cooked through.

Slider Ingredients:

375 grams bacon, chopped

1 large onion. chopped

½ cup bbq sauce

⅓ cup mayonnaise

12 slices cheddar cheese

12 small sized hamburger buns

While beef patties are baking. Fry the bacon until crisp. Remove and drain onto paper towels. Leave a little of the bacon grease in pan and cook the onions until tender.

In a bowl combine the cooked onions, bacon and bbq sauce. Stir to combine.

Cut buns in half.

Spread some mayonnaise to one half of the bun. Top with a beef patty.

Spread some of the bacon mixture on the other half of the bun. Top the patty with cheese.

Place in oven to melt the cheese.
