When we have burgers for dinner, I usually make them into “slider” form.

If you aren’t familiar with the term, a slider is just another name for a smaller size burger or kinda a mini version of a burger.

They are quicker to cook up than a regular size burger and honestly, kid friendly size. Even though my kids are getting bigger, they like their burgers in a two to three bite size. It just seems to work for us.

These mini burgers are my personal favorites, though. 🙂

Ingredients Needed:

  • Ground beef
  • Ranch dressing
  • Bacon
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Slider buns

Can I Use Ground Turkey? Yes. Ground turkey or ground chicken will also work for this recipe. Keep in mind, your cooking time may need to be changed.

Ranch Dressing: Want to make it homemade? It’s easy!

Bacon: Use cooked bacon and yes, turkey bacon can be used instead. If you want you cheat a little and go with pre made bacon bits. 😉

Cheese: We like a sharp cheddar. But, Colby Jack or a taco blend goes great with this too.

How to Make:

  • First, mix together ground beef, ranch, cheese and bacon.
  • Form the mixture into 8-10 small patties. If you don’t want a slider, you can make these into normal size burgers. It should make about 4 patties. Just be sure to adjust your cooking time.
  • Cook each slider on each side 3-5 minutes or until they are no longer pink.
  • Remove from the pan and let them rest about 5 minutes before serving.
  • Top them off with your favorite burger garnish.

Serve them With:
