The Best Bourbon Bacon Roast Beef Sliders

These Bourbon Bacon Roast Beef Sliders are a great game day recipe that is perfect for your next football party!

Bread Booze Bacon actually inspired our bourbon bacon roast beef sliders. We were drooling over Julie’s recipe for Jack Daniels Bacon Mac and Cheese and we knew we had to use the recipe for Whiskey Candied Bacon to create the ultimate game day slider. We piled roast beef, bourbon candied bacon, and cheddar cheese on soft slider rolls and baked them until the cheese was gooey, and the smell of candied bacon filled the air. Seriously guys, these sliders are the bomb. Bacon and roast beef are always good together but you coat that bacon in brown sugar and bourbon and you’re talking next level appetizer!

You’ll Need:

  • 15 slider buns
  • 6 cheddar cheese slices
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 12 ounces roast beef, sliced (about 10 slices)
  • 8 slices Whiskey Candied Bacon, cooked
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place the bottom half of the slider buns in a greased casserole dish.
  3. Place a layer of roast beef over the bottom buns.
  4. Top with a layer of cheddar cheese slices.
  5. Finish with a layer of Whiskey Candied Bacon slices.
  6. Place the top buns on the sliders.
  7. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 10 minutes, then remove the foil, brush the slider buns with melted butter and sprinkle with poppy seeds.
  8. Continue baking for another 10 minutes.
  9. Enjoy!


  • If you're using thick cut bacon you may need to bake it longer, until it's crispy and glazed.
