Making burgers for a crowd has never been easier – and you don’t even need to fire up the grill! These bison cheeseburger sliders are made with a single HUGE bison patty and then held together with cheesy deliciousness. Pile it high with your favorite toppings or keep it simple – no matter how you prepare it, the honey mustard sauce on top pulls the entire sandwich together into one crispy, crunchy slider.
Bison Cheeseburger Sliders
- 32 oz Great Range Premium Ground Bison
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 9 slider buns
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 6-8 slices American cheese
- 5-6 tablespoons diced tomatoes - drained
- 2-3 tablespoons sliced candied jalapenos - or to taste
- 2-3 tablespoons crispy fried onions
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon honey mustard
- 1 tablespoon everything bagel seasoning
- 1 tablespoon parsley + more for topping
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease and line a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper. Use the parchment overhang to create “wings” on either side of the pan. Press the ground bison into the shape of the pan and season generously with salt and pepper. Bake the bison patty until it reaches an internal temp of 160°F – about 15-25 minutes.
Slightly tilt the pan to drain the excess fat from the pan. Let the bison patty cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes before lifting it out of the pan with the overhanging parchment. Place on a separate plate to cool. Clean the pan while the bison patty cools.
Decrease the oven temp to 350°F. Grease the baking sheet lightly with cooking spray then arrange the bottom half of 9 sliders (or however many will fit in your pan, there should be enough to fill the pan edge to edge).
Place the bison patty on top of the slider bottoms and remove the parchment. Spread on the mayonnaise and top with the American cheese, tomato, jalapenos and fried onions as desired. Top with more cheese to glue everything together then place on the top bun.
In a small bowl, melt the butter and whisk it together with the honey mustard, everything seasoning and parsley. Brush the mixture on top of the buns then return to the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, until golden brown and the cheese is melted.
Sprinkle on the remaining parsley and use a sharp knife to cut the sliders into individual burgers. Serve hot and enjoy!
