We can’t tell you how much we enjoy recipes with bacon. Let’s face it, bacon makes everything taste better. You wouldn’t believe it, but there are even some mouthwatering dessert recipes that have bacon in them. We don’t think that is too far, in fact, we also think wrapping bacon around meat not only makes the meal taste better, but also gives the dish an unforgettable flavor that you just can’t get by simply putting bacon on top of it. The flavors need to be infused together to get the ultimate bacon flavor that we all love.
This delicious recipe comes from our friends the Two Old Crabs. Bacon is wrapped around seasoned burgers and baked until it is golden brown, and then tossed on the grill for that smokey grill flavor. Basted with barbeque sauce, Bacon Wrapped Cheeseburger Sliders have a tangy savory flavor that is perfect for any gathering. This is better than your average burger recipes. We hope that you enjoy them and happy eating!
