I have been trying to get my family to eat less fast food and more home cooked meals. It has been something of a struggle, but that changed when I served up these Baked Bacon and Cheeseburger Sliders. They taste better than fast food sliders and are made with quality ground beef. Now my family asks me to make these all the time! I was asked by Carusele to participate in the #LaurasLean campaign, sponsored by Laura’s Lean. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.

How to make bacon cheeseburger sliders recipe
To make 12 of these yummy baked bacon cheeseburger sliders you will need 1 pound of 92% Laura’s Lean Ground Beef. Whenever I am serving a dish with beef, I want to make sure it is made with quality beef like Laura's Lean, because it really makes such a difference in the meal.
What makes Laura's Lean different from other “natural” beef is that it is a “Never Ever” offering. What this means is that the protein is sourced from suppliers that raise their cattle without ever using added hormones or antibiotics and are always vegetarian fed. It is beef that I feel good serving my family and they love the taste!
To make these sliders, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Start out by spraying a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Then slice your Hawaiian rolls in half.
Place the bottom of the rolls in the pan.
Now it is time to cook up your Laura's Lean ground beef. I love how each 4oz serving of Laura’s Lean contains less than 10g of fat, 4.5g or less of saturated fat and less than 95mg of cholesterol per 100g serving. This makes it a smart choice when grocery shopping.
Laura’s Lean 96% Ground Beef is certified through the American Heart Association heart check program and meets USDA standards for “Extra Lean”. Laura’s Lean claim must meet strict USDA standards to qualify as lean.
Add 1 pound of Laura's Lean beef to a large skillet.
Add 1 package of onion soup mix and stir to mix. Cook beef mixture over medium heat until beef is browned and no longer pink. While the beef is cooking, it is time to cook your bacon.
Set the bacon aside when cooked. When the beef mixture is cooked through, layer onto the slider buns you have previously added to the pan.
Top the beef with some sliced cheddar cheese. Make sure to cover the beef completely. Top the cheese with bacon slices that have been cut to the same size as the buns.
Cover the sliders with the tops of the buns. Melt the butter and brush the melted butter on top of the rolls.
Sprinkle on sesame seeds and garlic powder.
Bake these mini burgers in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
Remove from the oven and serve.
There are many ways to top these cheeseburger sliders. My husband likes them topped with dill pickle slices, while my kids like the burger topped with ketchup and mustard. The choice is yours!

Frequently asked questions
You can serve these with a side of baked fries or onion rings. They are also great with these cheese curds.
You can use Hawaiian sweet rolls, brioche rolls, or soft dinner rolls. Just make sure they are the right size and that you have 12 of them.
I don't recommend it. The rolls on the bottom would get way to soggy.
