CP All-Star Sliders

I couldn't find the original recipe so I just pulled info from a few places and made it work.

The Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 1 block of sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup of ketchup
  • 1/4 cup mustard
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 package of Hawaiian sweet rolls 

The Directions:
  • Brown the ground beef, drain and put in the crock pot
  • Cut the block of cheese into squares and put over the meat
  • Add the ketchup, mustard and Worcestershire sauce over the meat and cheese
  • Mix together
  • Cook on LOW for at least 1 hour
  • Serve on Hawaiian sweet rolls

The Verdict:
*So yummy and the leftovers were fantastic!
*Would be great to serve at a party- the crock pot keeps the meat warm. Also easy to serve!

Here's how mine turned out:

BBQ Meatball Sliders- NOT CROCK POT!

The Inspiration:
Smokey Mesquite BBQ Meatball Sliders

The Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 Kraft Fresh Take meal*
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 lb. bacon, chopped*
  • 1 medium onion, chopped*
  • 1/4 cup BBQ Sauce
  • 3 big slices cheddar cheese
  • 12 Hawaiian rolls

The Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Line a lipped baking sheet with parchment paper & non-stick spray
  • With your hands combine the Kraft Fresh Take, egg and meat until evenly distributed
  • Roll the mixture into 1 1/2 - 2 inch meatballs & space evenly on the baking sheet
  • Bake for 30 minutes
  • While the meatballs are baking, fry the bacon until crispy- over medium heat
  • Remove bacon from skillet, leave the grease
  • Add the onions to the skillet & reduce the heat to medium, stirring often until tender
  • Cut the rolls in half 
  • Add one meatball to the bottom portion of the roll
  • Brush the tops with BBQ sauce
  • On top of the meatballs add the cheese slices, bacon bits & grilled onions
  • Place under the broiler next to the roll tops for 2-3 minutes- until the cheese is melted
  • Put the top of the rolls on the meatballs
  • Serve & enjoy!.

The Verdict:
*I used the Southwest Three Cheese Fresh Take meal. The recipe calls for the Smokey Mesquite BBQ but I had this one on hand.
*I used a few pieces of cooked bacon- to get the grease- but mainly I used real  bacon bits from a bag :D
*For the onion I used half of a Vidalia onion.

Here's how mine turned out:
They were a HUGE hit! Officially in the rotation for dinner!
