Bacon Bleu Sliders {Vegetarian}

Day 208.

It's no secret I've fallen in love with sliders lately. And, since I'm doing my pantry challenge, I needed to use up some blue cheese. So these bacon bleu burgers were the perfect choice. I also had a ridiculous amount of sweet potatoes (both orange and purple) on-hand. So I made a batch of Sweet Potato Chips to serve alongside these burgers. Those were fantastic. We had the savory version here, but the sweet were great also.

Bacon Bleu Sliders
Adapted from Bacon Bleu Burgers.
Mix milk and breadcrumbs. Allow to site for 5 minutes, until milk is absorbed. In a large bowl, mix together "beef," breadcrumb mixture, onions, about half of the bacon and half of bleu cheese. Divide into 8 patties. Cook on hot grill for 3-5 minutes. Top with remaining bacon and cheese. We served ours on small sourdough rolls.

The Results
Super tasty. I love the bacon-bleu cheese combination. The sliders are great, as always, and the bacon-bleu cheese flavor really enhances the patty.

  1. Terrific! What a great change from the norm.

  2. I cooked burgers on the stovetop the other night with Feta Cheese, onions, garlic and salt! Yours sounds like something that would be an awesome version. BTW - what is the difference between a slider and a burger?

  3. Sliders are just small burgers, sometimes called minis or mini burgers.

  4. Looks delish.
