TikTok

I am one of the billions of people across the world who waste too much time on TikTok. It is wildly entertaining but also mind-numbing. So yeah, your basic good time. My personal rule is that I only watch it when I get in bed at the end of the day. Most of the cooking/recipe posts have me rolling my eyes and scrolling past but every now and then you find a good one. This recipe caught my attention enough to give it a try. It’s a keeper.

I made it as the original video showed, but I’m suggesting you make a couple of changes, I am reflecting those changes in the instructions below. The original used 2 pounds of ground beef. That is too much for my taste, When the sliders were baked in the oven, covering with foil was not called for, it should be. I’ve added foil for the first 15 minutes of the 20 minute baking time. This should prevent the top buns from getting so dark.

*Yes, the elongated photo situation is still a problem. Working on it.

Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders

  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon + 1/4 teaspoon Lawry’s Seasoned Salt, divided
  • 1 tablespoon + 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning, divided
  • 1 teaspoon + 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or dried minced garlic, divided
  • 6 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 1 stick butter
  • 12 roll package Kings Hawaiian Rolls
  • 6 slices Muenster cheese
  • 6 slices sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 12 – 24 dill pickle slices/chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place the ground beef in a medium bowl, add 1 tablespoon of the Lawry’s Seasoned Salt, 1 tablespoon of the Italian seasoning and 1 teaspoon of the garlic powder. Mix well with your hands to evenly combine.

Spread meat evenly into a 2 quart (11 x 7 x 1.5) Pyrex dish. Lay the bacon out on a rack over a baking sheet. Place both in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes.

Remove beef and bacon from the oven and drain both on layers of paper towels.

Leave oven on. Wash and dry the Pyrex to use again. Dice bacon and set aside. Melt the butter in a small bowl and stir in the remaining 1/4 teaspoon Lawry’s, 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning, and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder. Use a brush to spread a thin layer of the seasoned butter on the bottom and sides of the cleaned Pyrex dish.

Remove the slab of Hawaiian Rolls from the package and keep them attached as they are. Then slice the entire slab of rolls in half horizontally. Place the bottom of the rolls in the buttered Pyrex and press down slightly.

Layer the Muenster cheese on top, overlapping the cheese as needed to fit.

Place the meat on top and layer with the slices of cheddar, overlapping as needed.

Sprinkle the onion and diced bacon evenly on top. Place the dill pickle sliced on top, taking care to be sure each slider has a pickle or two. Place on the top slab of rolls.

Drizzle the remaining seasoned butter evenly all over the top of the rolls. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 5 minutes.

Remove from oven and use a knife to cut apart, leave in Pyrex to serve, or remove to a platter if you want to be fancy. (they will stay hot longer in the Pyrex.) Serve with mustard, ketchup, mayo, whatever else you’d like on the side for dipping.
