Glazed Slider Hor D’oeuvre
½ pound flavorful bacon, chopped
1 pound ground beef
½ cup chopped onion, optional
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (14-oz) diced tomatoes w/onion and garlic, drained
1 ½ tablespoons coarse country mustard, divided
1 ½ tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, divided
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 package rolls Hawaiian sweet rolls, or 1 dozen slider rolls
2 cups shredded cheese
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Chop bacon, place in a large skillet, add ⅓ cup water; scramble fry over medium to medium-high heat, until crisp. Remove bacon; set bacon aside. Drain excess bacon drippings from the pan.
Add beef, onion and garlic to pan used for cooking bacon. Scramble fry beef and onion until onion is transparent and beef is cooked through. Drain excess fat. Stir in drained tomatoes, ½-tablespoon mustard, ½-tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper to taste.
Cut rolls in half horizontally. Place roll bottoms in 9×13 pan. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheese. Spoon seasoned beef over cheese; add cooked crumbled bacon and remaining cheese. Top with remaining rolls. (NOTE: At this point sliders may be frozen. See below for details.)*
Combine and microwave until melted ¼-cup butter, brown sugar, 1-tablespoon mustard, and ½-tablespoon Worcestershire sauce. Drizzle sauce over rolls. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
Connie Clements, Layton Utah, shared her recipe for a great little holiday hor d’oeuvre slider. This recipe also makes a wonderful late supper snack during hectic seasons. Recipe makes 1-dozen rolls or serves 6-12 (depending on if it used as an appetizer or supper).
*Make-Ahead Tip: Freeze unglazed rolls. Thaw overnight, or 6-8 hours, in refrigerator. Remove from fridge while oven is preheating and prepare glaze (20-30 minutes). Glaze, sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake 30-35 minutes.
