Better with Bacon – Big Fat Bacon Sliders…

Burgers with bacon, on the surface nothing that is that new or exciting in culinary terms…

I felt exactly the same way until I ran across this recipe for Big Fat Bacon Sliders from The Pioneer Woman.  Her photographic step-by-step directions are just awesome.  It’s all about technique kids and some of the things she does make so much sense that you end up smacking your head saying, “that’s EXACTLY how it should be done”.

So HUZZAH to The Pioneer Woman!  I’ll keep poppin’ in if you keep making yummy things with bacon ;-)

serves eight?

4 strips bacon?
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon marjoram
8 mini hamburger buns or small Hawaiian-style sweet rolls, split and toasted if desired
2 cups baby arugula?
2 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded?
1 ripe, fresh avocado, seeded and peeled?
2 oz. smoked Gouda cheese, sliced to fit buns?

Cut bacon strips in half crosswise and cook until crisp. Place cooked bacon on paper towels; reserve. Gently mix ground beef with soy sauce, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and marjoram. Being careful not to compact the meat, gently form into thin burger patties that are slightly wider than the buns. Grill or pan fry patties over medium-high heat, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Meanwhile, slice each avocado half crosswise to make 2 small slices per slider; reserve. Assemble the sliders: top the bottom half of each mini bun with the arugula and shredded cheddar cheese. Place burger patties on top of the shredded cheese; top each with bacon, Gouda cheese, 2 slices of avocado and the top bun.
