Jalapeño Bacon Jam Sliders


  • 6 slices Better Than Good Bacon
  • 1 cup(s) white onion, chopped
  • 1 Lb ground chuck
  • 1 Tbsp Adams Reserve Just Right Burger Spice
  • 1 jar Better Than Good Jalapeño Bacon Jam, divided
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup(s) panko bread crumbs
  • 1 12 count package H-E-B Aloha Rolls, cut in half horizontally
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) cheddar, shredded
  • 1 jar Byer’s Best Candied Jalapeños


  1. Preheat oven to 350* F.
  2. In a large skillet, cook bacon until almost crispy and fat is released. Add in onions and sauté until translucent.
  3. In a large bowl, combine bacon and onion mixture, beef, ½ jar of Bacon Jam, Burger Spice, eggs and bread crumbs and mix well. Place mixture into a prepared baking dish that will fit the aloha rolls and flatten into a rectangular shape. Top with remaining ½ jar of Bacon Jam.
  4. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165* F.
  5. Remove and let it cool slightly. Remove top layer of buns and place bottom layer in the cleaned baking dish you cooked the beef in. Place the “sheet” of cooked beef on top of the buns, layer with cheese and place top layer of buns on top.
  6. Brush the tops of the buns with the melted butter, and bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Skewer Candied Jalapeños onto a toothpick and place on top of the buns for garnish.
