Recipe for Bacon, Blue Cheese, and Mushroom Sliders
1 lb. ground beef
3 strips bacon, cut into thirds and cooked
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
2 tbsp. white onion, finely minced
4 oz. white mushrooms, sliced
3 oz. crumbled blue cheese
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, divided
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
Sea salt and black pepper
1. Preheat oven broiler to high and set top oven rack to the second highest setting.
2. In a large, oven-safe skillet, cook bacon to desired doneness. Remove from skillet and set aside. Drain excess liquid from skillet.
3. Add ground beef, mustard, garlic, and onion to a medium bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Mix with a fork or your fingers until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
4. Divide beef mixture into 8 portions and shape each into small patties. Set patties on a plate and gently press each with your thumb in the center to keep them from puffing up while cooking. Set aside.
5. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in the oven-safe skillet. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are nicely browned, approximately 5-6 minutes.
Remove from heat and transfer mushrooms to a small bowl and set aside.
6. Add remaining tablespoon of olive oil to pan and swirl to coat the bottom. Add slider patties to the skillet and cook until brown on each side, approximately 2-3 minutes per side.
7. Remove from heat and top each slider with sautéed mushrooms and crumbled blue cheese. Place skillet in oven under broiler for 2-3 minutes, or until blue cheese starts to melt.
8. Remove skillet from oven and top each slider with a piece of bacon. Serve on a bed of lettuce along with a side of steamed broccoli, if desired.
