Cheddar Bacon Sliders
8 slices thick cut black pepper bacon
8 ground sirloin burger patties
Burger dry rub seasoning
16 crispy fried onion rings
4 toasted pretzel roll buns
Optional: Lettuce and tomato for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and also preheat your grill to medium high heat.
On a parchment lined baking sheet, evenly lay bacon slices on the surface.
Bake bacon for 15-20 minutes until deep brown and evenly crispy. Remove from oven and pat bacon on paper towels to remove bacon fat. Break each slice in half.
Season all sides of patties with dry rub seasoning and pat into the surface of the meat.
Grill all burgers on both sides until reaching desired doneness.
Add a slice of Tillamook cheddar cheese on each individual burger patty, allow to melt then remove patties from grill.
To assemble, (optional) place lettuce and tomato on each bun bottom.
Place two patties on top of lettuce and tomato then add four bacon halves to each burger.
Lastly add two onion rings on top of bacon and finish with top bun on each burger and serve.
