- 2 packages (18 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
- Preheat oven to 350°. Without separating rolls, cut each package of rolls horizontally in half; arrange bottom halves in two greased 13x9-in. baking pans. Sprinkle each pan of rolls with 1 cup cheese. Bake 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
- In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until beef is no longer pink and onion is tender, breaking up beef into crumbles; drain. Stir in tomatoes, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until combined.
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, 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and heated through.
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 or until cheese is melted and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°. Yield: 2 dozen.
Reviews forBacon Cheeseburger Slider Bake
"Holy Cow!!! These were devoured immediately!Great recipe, everyone loved these, we ate them with a fork because my pkg of ground beef was a little larger than recipe called for. I did not have diced tomatoes so I added a jar of pimentos drained. It was fabulous. I will try with tomatoes in the future as well. Husband, kids and neighbors were very happy.!"
"Oh my goodness....had to join this site just so I could leave a comment for this recipe. So easy to make and EVERYONE loved these!! Had to send the link to everyone that ate them. So many possible variations for this too!! Taco buns? Shredded chicken enchilada buns!! Cinnamon cream cheese buns??? Wow!"
"These tasted great and were easy to make. The only problem I had was that it says to pour the glaze over the sliders. That is a lot of glaze. That made it impossible to eat by hand because they stuck to the bottom of the pan. I'll make again but just baste the tops with the glaze rather than pouring it over."
"I've made these several times. The first as the recipe was written and a few times with minor changes. My son is not a fan of mustard so this last time I used barbecue sauce in the glaze as suggested by my husband. Again, they were delicious! I've also topped with sliced cheese instead of the shredded (because I didn't have enough shredded) and broke the bacon slices to fit the sandwiches. I also found that brushing the glaze over the tops of the rolls instead of pouring doesn't saturate the bread as much. Will continue to make this dish!!!"
"These are so delicious. I could only find 12 oz and 18 oz packages of rolls. I used what I had filled on 9 x 13 pan and used the whole recipe of meat mixture. I tool them to the fire station. They were devoured. Such great flavor."
"No need to cut recipe in half with hungry teenagers, late night snackers, and a busy family. The extras only lasted a day. I will make this again, soon!"
"Oh my yum! Very good slider recipe. I was a bit weary considering the ground beef was crumbled rather than formed into patties. You really couldn't tell the difference. Wonderful flavor!"
"Why can't I save this to my recipe box?"
"This was a very yummy recipe! I cut the recipe in half and wound up putting it in a 9 1/2 x 9 1/2" baking pan and worked out well. The package of rolls I had were only 16 oz, so that might be why it fit better in that pan. Instead of ground beef, I used ground turkey. Also, instead of cooking & crumbling bacon, I just used real bacon bits. I didn't have enough onion, so I chopped up some leftover red bell pepper. This was so good. Only slight problem was that the bottom of the burgers was a little soggy/gummy. Next time I think I'll cook the bottom a little longer in the first step. I also only cooked the full recipe for about 15 minutes. Any longer and I think the tops would have burned. Will definitely make this one again!"
"This was super awesomely delicious. (Yes, I needed all those adjectives). I cut the butter by half and the bacon by a third to cut the fat and calories a bit, though it was still decadent. I can tell you, it was awesome with the reductions."
