2 pounds 80% lean ground beef
10 slices plum tomato
4 slices American cheese, cut in quarters
5 romaine lettuce leaves, cut in half crosswise
10 slider buns
kosher salt
fresh ground pepper
"In-N-Out" sauce:
1 cup mayonnaise
cup minced bread and butter pickles
1 tbsp whole grain dijon mustard
lemon, juice
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground white pepper
1 tsp sriracha
tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp ketchup
salt to taste
Bacon Jam:
8 strips bacon
1 cup chopped yellow onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
cup bourbon
cup coffee
cup maple syrup
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

"In-N-Out" sauce: Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl until well incorporated.

Bacon Jam: In a saucepan, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain and let cool slightly. Leave the bacon fat in the pan. Once the bacon is cool enough to handle, roughly chop and set aside. Add the onions and garlic to the bacon fat over medium-high heat and saute until carmelized, about 4-5 min. Add bourbon to pan and reduce by half. Then add coffee and reduce by half. Add the maple syrup, apple cider vinegar and chopped bacon to pan; bring to a boil then simmer on medium heat for 10 min until slightly syrupy. Transfer the mixture to the bowl of a food processor and blend until smooth. Cool bacon jam to room temp before serving.

Sliders: Preheat grill or griddle to medium-high heat and lightly oil grill grates. Form the beef into ten 1" thick slider-sized beef patties. Season liberally with salt and black pepper on both sides of patty. Let patties rest 10 min. Grill burgers to desired doneness, ensuring a hard sear on both sides. Add the cheese and let melt. Place the patties on the bottom slider buns, top with bacon jam, sauce and lettuce, then close with top buns and serve. (may wrap half way with folded parchment paper to serve)
