However, with a little creativity, you can recreate those beloved flavors in a healthier way. Enter the Bacon Sliders with Blue Cheese and Mushrooms recipe, a dish that’s sure to satisfy your cravings without derailing your diet.

The Allure of Bacon Sliders With Blue Cheese and Mushrooms

What makes these sliders irresistible? Perhaps it’s the savory ground beef patties seasoned with Dijon mustard, garlic, and onion. Or maybe it’s the rich topping of sautéed mushrooms and crumbled blue cheese. And let’s not forget the crispy bacon that adds a smoky crunch to every bite. Together, these ingredients create a symphony of indulgent and diet-friendly flavors.



To make these bacon sliders, you’ll need ground beef, Dijon mustard, garlic, onion, sea salt, black pepper, extra virgin olive oil, white mushrooms, crumbled blue cheese, and bacon. Each ingredient brings its own unique flavor, contributing to the overall deliciousness of the dish.

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 2 t. Dijon mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 2 T. white onion finely minced
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 4 oz. white mushrooms sliced
  • 3 oz. crumbled blue cheese
  • 3 strips bacon cut into thirds and cooked

The Process

Start by preheating your oven broiler and setting the top rack to the second highest setting. In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef, mustard, garlic, and onion, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Divide the mixture into eight small patties, pressing each one in the center to prevent them from puffing up while cooking.

Next, heat olive oil in a large, oven-safe skillet, and sauté the mushrooms until they’re nicely browned. After setting the mushrooms aside, add more olive oil to the pan and cook the slider patties until they’re brown on each side.

Now for the fun part: topping each slider with the sautéed mushrooms and crumbled blue cheese, then placing the skillet under the broiler for a couple of minutes until the cheese starts to melt. Top each slider with a piece of bacon, and voila! Your sliders are ready to be served, ideally on a bed of lettuce and with a side of steamed broccoli.


The Verdict

The Bacon Sliders recipe is a testament to the fact that diet-friendly food can be just as satisfying as its carb-heavy counterparts. The dish is flavorful, satisfying, and most importantly, keto-friendly. So go ahead, give this recipe a try — it might just become your new favorite way to enjoy a classic slider.
