Bacon Cheeseburger Slider Bake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min.
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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°.

Brioche buns worked well when Hawaiian sweet buns became hard to find. Flavorful, easy to eat, will make again. I used 1 large glass pan for the whole shebang.

Everyone enjoyed these! Some liked the sweetness of them. I marveled that even those the beef was crumbled, it wasn't falling out of the bun. I suppose the cheese helped keep it in place. I will admit that I didn't even use half the glaze. The thought of pouring it over the top made me think the bottoms would be soggy and that is not a texture I enjoy. Just brushed it on generously and baked them. Very good!

It was perfect. We had a 4th july party. These were taken out after I heated it thru. By the time my daughter got to the table they were gone. They all said make more. Well worth making. Will make this over and over.

Made these for dinner the other night and they were great. I assembled them in the morning and baked them in the evening. I did have to add an additional 15 minutes to the cooking time.

I made this dish last night and we thought it was really good. I halved the recipe because we did not need it to make the entire 2 dozen. My husband was leery but said he really liked them and to please make them again! And also said to try with bacon and egg in the middle a breakfast style dish. Overall, I would definitely recommend it and make it again. Very easy to prepare and only a few leftovers. Goes great with coleslaw too.
