Blue Cheese Bacon Sliders

Everybody loves seeing a burger on the menu -- especially when they don’t have to wait for dinner to start eating them! That’s where the Blue Cheese Bacon Sliders are king: as an appetizer before dinner, or as a snack after! (And we’d be lying if we didn’t tell you they make a great main course, too.)
