Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs local pastured ground beef
  • 2-3 strips of pastured bacon chopped into small pieces
  • ½ cup shredded pasture-raised cheddar
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • lettuce tomato, red onion, avocado for toppings
  • 8 gluten-free or grain-free slider buns Recipe at Lexi's Clean Kitchen: http://lexiscleankitchen.com/2014/08/24/the-ultimate-paleo-sandwich-rolls/ or you can use iceberg lettuce or as a "bun"

Instructions

  1. Place the ground beef in a bowl, and add the worcestershire sauce, mustard, and a few dashes of salt and pepper, mix thoroughly
  2. Place the chopped bacon in a pan and saute over medium-high until crispy.
  3. Remove the bacon once it is done and let it cool on a paper towel to absorb the excess fat
  4. Place the shredded cheese and bacon pieces in a bowl and mix so they are distributed evenly.
  5. Next, with your hands, make bacon cheese balls about ½” to ¾” large by smooshing the mixture with a decent amount of pressure, this will make them easier to stuff.
  6. Form 2” ground beef patties and use your finger to poke a hole in the middle of one side, but not all the way through.
  7. Insert a cheese and bacon ball and cover the hole up completely.
  8. Grill the stuffed patties on medium-high until they are cooked according to your preference.
  9. I also like to brush the buns with a little olive oil or butter and grill them as well, and press down with the spatula to flatten them.
  10. Top your sliders with condiments and toppings and enjoy!
