Bacon lovers unite! This recipe is a bacon lover's dream, with bacon 2 ways! Due to the BBQ sauce being sweet, I recommend using a spicy cheese (like habanero Jack).

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Attach the meat grinder attachment to an electric stand mixer (such as KitchenAid®). Run enough bacon through the meat grinder to make 8 ounces ground bacon.

  • Combine ground bacon, beef, bread crumbs, 1/4 cup barbeque sauce, and steak sauce in a bowl. Mix until well combined and shape into 2-inch round balls. Set meatballs on a baking sheet.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bake meatballs until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 160 degrees F (71 degrees C), about 25 minutes.

  • Place a slice of cheese on top each meatball. Toast slider buns if desired. Place a meatball between each slider bun. Top with cooked bacon slices, onion, remaining barbeque sauce, and roasted red bell peppers.
