Blue Ribbon Recipe

Ground beef sliders are a popular appetizer or fun and easy dinner. These grilled sliders have a zesty onion flavor. On top of the melted American cheese are crunchy, smoky bacon and creamy coleslaw. As you take a bite, the sweet and spicy BBQ sauce oozes out. Fun to serve on game day because the recipe can be doubled or tripled to serve a crowd.
