After a fun event filled Easter weekend road trip, Zo and I were tired and starving. All day we had been talking about the fact we would be BBQing because summer was fast arriving. We dropped off our friends and were headed home when Zo said, "I really want BBQ." I told her, "We really did not have anything we can thaw out quickly. What about some BBQ sliders?" I explained my idea for them and she said, "I really want BBQ but OK." These were quick, easy and you can make them with what ever fixings you like.

2 filet mignon steaks (or four small beef patties)
1/4 red onion (chopped)
2 slices Colby cheddar cheese
4 Hawaiian sweet dinner rolls
1 slice bacon
BBQ sauce
1 tsp butter

In a frying pan melt butter over medium heat and saute onions. Move onions to small plate and then fry one slice of bacon cut into four even pieces. Once crisp move bacon to the same plate onions are being kept on.

While onions and bacon are cooking. Cut dinner rolls in half to make slider buns. Cut steaks in half making four thinner steaks, meat hammer both sides (inside of a ziploc to make less mess) 1/2 thickness and then rub with a few dashes of essence.

As soon as the onions and bacon are done turn up the heat to medium high and throw all four steaks in. Cook both sides for 4-6 minutes or until done. Toast rolls in toaster oven or conventional oven at 300 degrees until browning.

Layer your cheese, onions, bacon and steak your preferred way, smear a little BBQ and mustard on your slider bun and you are ready to go!

We paired with an Orange blossom cream beer and some chipotle BBQ kettle chips. It may not have been BBQ but it sure hit the spot.
