It's Superbowl time and you need spectacular snacks to satisfy the supporters! Try these special Bacon Wrapped Sliders to really wow those fans while they enjoy the big game. Besides, everything wrapped in bacon is better right? And miniature things are better too right? Moist and delicious, these beefy little guys go down easy, and are super quick to make thanks to the Napoleon Slider Press, I used it on the Latke a while back.

Bacon Wrapped Sliders

Serves: Makes 9 Sliders       Total Time: 35 Minutes


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tsp. white cheddar powder (like the stuff from Kernels for your popcorn)
  • 1 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp. steak sauce
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 9 slices of bacon
  • slider buns
  • lettuce, onion, cheese, and condiments for serving


Step 1
In a bowl, add the beef, onion, garlic, cheddar powder, worcestershire, steak sauce, salt and pepper. Use your hands to mix the beef and other ingredients together.
Step 2
Use the Slider Press to make perfectly portioned patties. Slice each piece of bacon in half and wrap one half of the bacon around each slider in one direction, then use the second half of the bacon and wrap it the opposite way, using the middle of the second strip to hold the edges of the first one in place.
Step 3
Chill your mini burgers of awesomeness for 30 minutes.
Step 4
While the sliders are chilling, preheat your grill to 500°F. Grill the sliders until the bacon is crispy and has some great sear marks on it. Once flipped, lay a slice or two of your favorite cheese, like an extra old cheddar on top to melt. If an instant read thermometer says that they're under done, move the sliders to the off side of the grill for another 5 to 15 minutes.
Step 5
Serve sliders on slider buns with all of your favorite condiments like mustard, ketchup, pickles, onion, lettuce, mayo etc.

These Bacon Wrapped Sliders are some kind of yummy. They're great for parties, big games, and just plain eating them up. Next time I think I may "accidentally" drop in some chunks of cheese, not shredded, but actual chunks, and see what happens.  Have you ever "accidentally" added something to a recipe? How did it turn out?  I quite often "accidentally" drop chocolate chips into pancakes. Here's how those pancakes turn out. Tell me about your kitchen ingredient "accidents" by leaving a comment below.

Happy Grilling!
