Blue Cheese Mini Sliders Recipe
- 1 lb ground beef
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 3 cloves garlic finely minced
- 2 tbsp white onion finely minced
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil divided
- 4 ounces white mushrooms sliced
- 3 ounces crumbled blue cheese
- 3 strips bacon cut into thirds and cooked
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat the oven broiler to high and set the top oven rack to the second highest position.
- In a medium bowl, add the ground beef, mustard, garlic, and onion. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and mix with a fork or your fingers until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
- Divide the 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 to the side.
- In a large, oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat, heat one tablespoon olive oil. Add the 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.
- Add the 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.
- Remove the sliders from the heat and top each one with sautéed mushrooms and crumbled blue cheese.
- Now place the skillet in the oven under broiler for 2-3 minutes, or until blue cheese starts to melt.
- Remove the skillet from the oven and top each slider with a piece of bacon. Serve immediately on a bed of lettuce and with a side of steamed broccoli, if desired.
