The lunch I made today was rockin’ good! We loved all components of it, especially the sliders. They baked in the oven, so there was no need to stand over a hot griddle, flipping away. I’m looking forward to making more burgers this way in the future.
- 2 slices thick cut bacon
- 1 pound ground sirloin
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon grill seasoning
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves
- 8 mini burger rolls, split (I used Pillsbury Whole Wheat)
- red onion and tomato slices, lettuce, tartar or A1 sauce
Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Arrange the bacon on slotted broiler pan and bake until crisp, about 12 minutes then cut each strip into fourths, (8 pieces). Set aside.
Coat a 3 by 4-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Season the meat with Worcestershire sauce, grill seasoning and parsley. Spread meat into pan in 1/2-inch layer all the way to corners of pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until firm but a little pink at center. Rest meat 5 minutes (dab off any extra grease) then cut into 8 square mini burgers.
Place burgers on mini roll bottoms and top with bacon, tomato, red onion, and tartar sauce or steak sauce, set in place.
