Grilled Sliders

During the summer months, I regularly get cravings for a juicy burger cooked on the grill. Typically I make a traditional sized burger that fits nicely on a standard bun, but sometimes itty bitty baby burgers are just what I need to satisfy my burger craving… even if finding itty bitty buns for the sliders turns out to be a wild goose chase!

In those instances when a burger craving hits, I turn to these yummy grilled sliders with fresh sharp cheddar cheese, crisp bacon, and a “special sauce ” (no, I’m not talking about McDonald’s ‘special sauce.’). The special sauce is really quite simple – 2 tablespoons of mayo get combined with 1 tablespoon of coarse ground dijon mustard. Easy, but flavorful, and adds a whole new depth of flavor to these sliders.

A slider isn’t complete without the mini sized bun, which *most* grocery stores sell, so I hear. Unfortunately I felt like I was on a wild goose chase trying to find appropriate sized buns and I ended up settling for round dinner rolls that actually worked quite well. So if you’re having difficulty tracking down slider buns, perhaps try using dinner rolls as well. See more here.

Making grilled sliders for just four big eaters means managing at least 16 tiny little burgers which can very easily dry out because they are so small.

Grilled Chicken Bacon Sliders


  • 4 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (breast Halves, Not The Whole Breast)
  • 16 slices Thin Bacon
  • Cajun Spice
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 16 whole Small Dinner Rolls
  • 16 slices Cheese Of Your Choice (cheddar, Monterey Jack, Pepper Jack, American, Swiss)
  • Bottled Sauces Of Your Choice: BBQ, Louisiana Hot Sauce, Teriyaki, Etc.
  • Toppings Of Your Choice: Tomato Slices, Grilled Onions, Lettuce, Celery Leaves, Etc.
  • Spread Of Your Choice: Mayo, Mustards, Mayo Mixed With Chipotle Pepper, Etc.


Slice bacon pieces in half and fry over medium-low heat until. Place the palm of your hand flat on the top of each chicken breast. Apply light pressure as you slice it horizontally in half (be careful!) When you’re finished, you’ll have eight thinner chicken breast pieces. Slice each of these in half so you’ll wind up with sixteen small chicken “patties.” Place a piece of plastic wrap on top of the thicker pieces and pound gently with a rolling pin to flatten slightly.
