Bacon Cheeseburgers sliders...thanks Donna!

Apparently we've got a special place in our hearts for Bacon Cheeseburgers around our house. I say that because each time one of the kids birthdays rolls around, I get a request for them! I always ask what they want for Birthday dinner...and back comes an enthusiastic....Bacon Cheeseburgers!!  Since I get that request so often, I try to mix things up and throw a little variety in...not sure if you saw the last ones which in which I stuffed the bacon and cheese in the middle?  This time I decided to go for a mini version and make sliders.  Not just any sliders, either.  I've been holding on to Donna's (My Tasty Treasures) brother-in-law's recipe FOREVER!  I knew I'd eventually get around to making them.  Yay, cross another one off the list!  Sliders were a fun was my littlest one's day anyway and these fit into his hands just right!  They worked out perfectly, so thanks Donna...and thanks Hurley!  Check out the secret ingredient in these...wasn't sure whether or not to announce it before people ate them.  A couple of the neighborhood kids came over to eat, too...I shushed mine, telling them not to give it up before they took a bite...which I immediately regretted since so many people have strong allergies...but fortunately these kids didn't (whew)!  PLUS, they asked for seconds...even after my little one spilled the beans about the secret ingredient.

Hurley’s Sliders
from Donna at My Tasty Treasures

I halved the recipe and got 16 sliders

4 pounds ground beef (85%)
2 pkgs Onion soup mix
1 cup milk
blob that's the technical term peanut butter
Dinner Rolls, ~16 for the halved recipe or however many you're making
Sliced American cheese
Lots of diced onions, ~6
I added bacon, cooked & crumbled

Put meat, milk, soup mixes and pb in large bowl and mix w/ your hands.

Split the meat in half and place in large baking sheets. Roll out w/ a rolling pin and then flatten with your hands til it meets the edges.

Bake in a 350 oven for about 10 mins. Remove.

Scatter a bunch of onions all around the edges where the meat has shrunk. Place back in oven for about 10 minutes.

Open dinner rolls. Place bottom half of roll face down & top with top of roll face side up. Take meat trays back out of oven and scatter some raw onions on top, top with sliced cheese and bacon!, if desired and top with lined up, prepared dinner rolls. Cook another ten minutes (this softens the rolls).

When they come out of the oven, use a pizza cutter to cut along the dinner rolls to make the burgers. Lift it up, remove the top roll, flip the burger on the plate, and top with the top roll.

Add your choice of condiments and serve with fries.

Oh yes, and don't forget the cake for dessert...birthday boy wanted a Devil's Food Cake with fudge icing and sprinkles.... that is exactly what he got!
