Slider burgers topped with melty cheese, crispy bacon and runny over easy eggs - served with fresh salsa to satisfy your inner cowboy!
½cupbreadcrumbsI just put a ½ piece of bread in a blender
3ouncesof cheddar cheesedivided into 6 slices
1jalapeñodiced, seeds removed (add seeds for spicier salsa)
juice of 1 lime
optional: 2 bell peppersdiced
Combine tomatoes, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice, and bell peppers in a large bowl. Set aside so the flavors can combine while you’re making the sliders.
Mix ground beef, breadcrumbs, cumin, salt and pepper together with hands. Form into 6 evenly sized slider patties. Set aside to rest for a few minutes.
Cook bacon to desired crispiness: For crispy bacon, I preheated the oven to 350 degrees, placed a wire rack in a baking sheet, arranged bacon in single layer on the wire rack, and baked it for 30 minutes.
While bacon is cooking, melt butter in a (preferably cast-iron) skillet on medium-low heat. Arrange burger patties and cook for 8 minutes. Flip each patty and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Top each patty with cheese and cook for another 3-5 minutes, until sliders reach desired doneness (suggested internal temperature of 160 degrees). Let rest on plate for 5 minutes.
While burgers are resting, heat skillet on stove over medium-low heat. Fry eggs to desired hardness. For over easy eggs I cooked my eggs for 3-5 minutes, flipped each egg, and cooked them for an additional minute to keep the yolks runny.
Assemble each slider: burger, bacon (I broke each bacon piece in half so they fit better on the slider buns), and an egg on each bun. Serve with salsa and enjoy!
