For the Sliders

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 16 slices of American cheese
  • 16 slider buns
  • 16 slices of bacon

For the Cherry Cola BBQ Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup sliced onions
  • 1/4 cup cherry cola
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup


Step 1 Of 6
Preheat one side of your grill to 450°F, leaving the other side off for indirect grilling.
Place bacon slices on the cooler side of the grill for indirect heat and cook for 20 minutes at 300°F.
While the bacon cooks, caramelize the onions with butter in a saucepan until golden brown. Then, add cherry cola, brown sugar, garlic powder, salt, pepper, vinegar and ketchup. Simmer for 10 minutes on the side burner.
Combine ground beef with Worcestershire sauce and form 16 slider patties.
Place beef patties on the hotter side of the grill for direct heat. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side. When the sliders are almost done, place a slice of American cheese on top of each slider. Set the slider buns on the warming rack. Close the lid and grill for another 30 seconds to melt the cheese and toast the buns.
Remove the patties and bacon slices from the grill. Top each slider with caramelized onions in cherry cola BBQ sauce, a slice of bacon and serve.
