  • 16 cubes of cheddar cheese
  • 16 slices of pepper jack cheese
  • 16 slices of bacon
  • 16 slider buns

Directions

Step 1 Of 6
1
Preheat one side of your grill to 400°F and leave the other side off for two-zone cooking.
2
Combine the ground beef, steak sauce and BBQ seasoning in a large bowl. Then, form 16 patties and press a cube of cheddar cheese into the center of each patty. Wrap ground beef around the cheese cube and reform patty.
3
Place the bacon slices on the cooler side of the grill for indirect heat. Close the lid and cook at 250°F for 20 minutes or until the bacon is almost done.
4
While the bacon cooks, combine honey, ketchup, vinegar, molasses and BBQ seasoning in a saucepan and simmer for 15 minutes on the side burner.
5
Place cheese-stuffed meat patties on the hotter side of the grill and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side over direct heat. Brush each patty with honey BBQ sauce and top with a slice of pepper jack cheese. Leave on grill for about 30 seconds to melt the cheese before removing.
6
Assemble your sliders with a tablespoon of honey BBQ sauce, lettuce, slider patty and a slice of bacon. Enjoy.
