SLIDERS! That’s right – I’m back and I’m back with sliders! 

But, they aren’t just some boring normal sliders. Nope. They are baked bacon cheeseburger sliders. I took perfectly seasoned ground beef, mixed it with onions and garlic, topped it onto potato buns, and then covered it all with bacon, pickles, and cheese. 


A meaty, pickled and cheese topped heaven.

What do I need to make baked bacon cheeseburger sliders?

It only takes a few simple ingredients to make these sliders. All you need: 

  • ground beef
  • onions and garlic
  • potato rolls
  • bacon
  • bread and butter pickles
  • sharp cheddar cheese 

That’s it! Well, that’s not true. I forgot to mention the addition of ketchup and spicy brown mustard cooked into the meat! COOKED INTO THE MEAT! Ok, I didn’t mean to yell that but it’s pretty freaking delicious. 

A lot of recipes that make baked sliders start with baking the meat first and then putting it onto the buns in a cooked sheet. While that sounds delicious I just didn’t want to put that much time into making sliders. So instead I opted to just brown the meat with all the flavors and pile that high onto the buns. 

Yes, it’s a little bit messier but makes putting together these sliders SO EASY!

I also made sure to baste the buns with a little butter and sprinkle on some sesame seeds to really sell the whole “burger” thing. Plus it helps the buns toast up nice and golden. 

Since I know everyone likes options lets talk about how we can make adaptions to these sliders. 

How can I change these baked bacon cheeseburger sliders?

  • Try using ground turkey, ground chicken, or even ground pork instead of ground beef. 
  • Swap out bread and butter pickles for a hearty dill pickle or even a spicy pickle. 
  • Don’t like sharp cheddar cheese? Try provolone, Munster, or even swiss! 
  • Instead of using small 24 count potato rolls try using 12 count bigger slider-sized buns.

    Dear Brandy, I usually serve up a side of mashed potatoes for those picky eaters who dislike sweet potatoes, but I love the idea of serving up a German potato salad. Yours looks wonderful! …and you are right- it would be a perfect accompaniment to any meal for any occasion! xo, Catherine

    This potato salad has just the right ingredients. I don’t like my potato salad too sweet and this looks like it has the right amount of tang. Perfect with the addition of bacon too. Yum.

    This is such a great potato salad Brandy, obviously because it’s loaded with bacon, but also that apple cider vinaigrette sounds amazing on it!
