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.
- 2 cups Lentil and Rice Ground Beef Substitute
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons onions, minced
- 1 cup Mushroom Bacon Bits, divided
- 1/2 cup bleu cheese crumbles, divided
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.
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.
