- 1 pound bacon*
- 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 5 oz. blackberry jam
- 10 oz. goat cheese, divided into 8 portions
- 10 thin slices of sourdough baguette
- butter or olive oil
- *suggested bacon flavor is Hickory Smoked Peppered Bacon
Cook the bacon until the fat begins to render but does not start to crisp, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Remove all the bacon except for 5 strips, leaving these slices cooking until they crisp. Set aside.
Finely chop the lightly cooked bacon and combine with the ground beef.
Form 10 even patties, about 3 inches wide.
Grill each side of the beef patty for about 3-5 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145°F.
While the beef patties are cooking, lightly coat each slice of bread with butter or olive oil and toast until lightly browned.
Assemble your sliders by placing a cooked bacon/beef patty on a buttered side of a slice of the toasted baguette, next place a half slice of crispy bacon on top of the patty. Spread a single portion of the goat cheese and 1/2 Tbs of blackberry jam on the second slice of toast and place atop the bacon burger. Repeat until all bacon patties are gone.
