Donut burgers are one of the new darling hybrids of the food world--but if you're nervous about trying the sweet and savory combo, it's best to start small. That's where we have you covered. Whip up a batch of these bacon cheeseburger sliders that use donut holes as buns! They fit on little skewers for dinner party-worthy presentation and give you a tiny taste of the newest trend.
Makes 8 mini sliders
4 large beef meatballs, homemade or store-bought (we used store-bought)
8 glazed donut holes (we used Munchkins from Dunkin Donuts)
3 strips of bacon
2 slices American cheese
Skewers, for assembly
1. Cook the strips of bacon to desired doneness either on the stove or in the microwave. Cut each strip into three pieces.
2. Slice meatballs in half and place on microwave-safe plate. Cut American cheese singles into quarters and place a quarter on each of the meatball halves. Microwave for 20 seconds. (*Note: They can also be done on the grill or under the broiler in your oven until cheese is just melted.)
3. Cut donut holes in half. Between two halves, pile cheese-covered meatball half, and piece of bacon. Hold together by sticking a skewer through the center of the slider.
4. Repeat with all eight donut holes. Enjoy!
