Barbecue Bacon Cheddar Sliders. A terrific way to feed the crowd at parties, cookouts, while tailgating or just for a casual pot luck dinner.
Everybody loves it when I serve these little hamburgers at get-togethers. They are a great thing to make when serving a large crowd at parties.
The fact that the burgers are slowly simmered in hot barbecue sauce makes them very easy to stay warm in a 200 degree oven at a party and then simply put together as you need them.
I have made batches of several dozen this way in the past. You can even set up a slider bar and let your guests put together their own.
I have included a barbecue sauce recipe here as well. It is a good idea to bring the sauce up to boiling before pouring it over the patties as this will speed up the oven time and not cool down the burgers.
You can even make the burger patties and cook them a day ahead plus make the sauce a day head as well. Sore in the fridge overnight, bring the sauce to a boil, pour over the cooked patties and place in the oven for a half hour.
Your guests will be enjoying these delectable little burgers in no time flat!
