Why go through the drive-thru, when you can make THESE show-stopping sliders, right? Prepared deluxe with added bacon, and totally smothered with my Just Plain Good Southern Pimento Cheese, these sliders skyrocketed to the top of our list of favorite cheeseburgers of all time! And they’re sure to become one of your favorites, too!
If this monster doesn’t look like your all-American dream burger, then maybe you’ll just have to make some for yourself and taste it to believe it!
Though there certainly isn’t anything wrong with the usual choice of good ole American processed cheese slices, I mean, it melts perfectly and is super convenient to use yielding just that hint of melty goodness.
THIS. Is even better!
These killer sliders start off with a big bowl of my homemade Just Plain Good Southern Pimento Cheese. And instead of just piling a mountainous glob on top and leaving it at that. This mountainous glob is going to get melted until it becomes a glorious blanket smothering the whole burger!
So. You in? Then let’s do this!!
Once we make our pimento cheese mixture, we’re really only minutes away from taking that first bite!
Just form the ground beef into 12 patties, and grill or fry them until they’re done to your liking. Then top them with the pimento cheese and run them under the broiler to melt all that wonderful cheese until it’s melty and draping over the burgers.
Then butter and toast the insides of your soft, pillowy slider buns, spread on a little mayo, and then top the bottoms with shredded lettuce….
…paper-thin sliced tomatoes and red onion, and one…..
…or TWO pimento cheeseburgers!
Drizzle a little mustard on the inside of your top bun….
….and lastly, add some crisp-cooked and peppered bacon!
Then place that top bun on, give it a good smash-down, and DIG IN!
And, of course, you can also make it single! My hubby, bless his heart, (god love a man who can eat!), was able to easily wolf down a double.
But I can barely master a single!
And remember, in my hubby’s defense, these are sliders, though they look much larger in the photos. (Close-ups can be deceiving!)
These patties are only one sixth of a pound each. (*BEFORE frying!) So they really aren’t that terrible!
And OMG. OMG.
Are they ever DELICIOUS!!
You really, simply, just HAVE to make them! They would be perfect for so many gatherings and events like New Year’s Eve, football tailgating parties, and especially the Super Bowl!
And because they’re actually small, (well, the singles are anyways), they’re perfect for a Friday fun-night dinner with the family!
So, before you head out to the store, be sure to add the few items needed to make these Deluxe Bacon Pimento Cheese Cheeseburger Sliders! They’ll be the hit of the party!
Hope you all enjoy! And have a fun, but safe, New Year’s Eve!
