For 12 sliders you will need 2 lbs of the best ground meat you can afford. It really does make a difference to the flavor of the meat. We mixed 2 lbs of ground meat with 1 tablespoon of a salt and pepper mixture. If you have a favorite burger seasoning use that or just use salt and pepper. Trust me the bacon brings all the flavor.

Add 1 cup of shredded Cheddar Cheese to the ground beef mixture. I like to use an ice cream scoop to help form the balls of meat for patties. This keeps them small enough to be considered a slider and keeps them uniform in size. Summer Dinner Ideas like these Bacon Cheddar Sliders are the ideal choice for your next weekend barbecue event!

Cut the BlackLabel Bacon slices in half and wrap around each burger patty. This will help flavor the meat, and add a bit of texture to your summer dinner ideas like our favorite bacon cheddar sliders.

You can cover and put in the fridge at this point to grill when guests arrive, or go ahead and put them straight on your grill. We cook on a charcoal grill, but you may prefer a gas grill. No matter which one you choose, a grilled bacon cheddar slider burger is one of our favorite summer dinner ideas because they are simple and so delicious!

Grill them on both sides until your preferred doneness. (I love medium Rare) I sometimes had to adjust the bacon but just look at the yummy flavorings just oozing into your burger.
