Small plates are great fun for parties. And small plates give everyone a chance to sample lots of dishes without too much guilt. These Blue Cheese and Bacon Sliders are flavorful and easy to make. I’ll serve these on mini onion rolls.
I added the cheese, bacon, chives, and sour cream, for moisture, into the hamburger meat. It seems to make sense rather than pile these on top of such a small sandwich.
Combine the beef, blue cheese, bacon, chives, sour cream, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl.
Use your hands to knead the ingredients into the ground beef.
Form into a 1 1/2 ounce meatballs and flatten.
Refrigerate for a couple of hours. Cook and serve, or freeze.
