Prep: 10 Minutes Cook: 15 Minutes Serves: 12 Submitted by: KING'S HAWAIIAN

Ingredients

12-pack KING’S HAWAIIAN Original Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
3 Tablespoons HEINZ Mayonnaise
1 medium onion, diced
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 pound raw ground chicken
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
2 Tablespoons freshly chopped parsley (or 1 Tbsp dried)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 large California avocado, pitted and sliced
5 strips thick cut bacon, cooked crisp
5 (1 ounce) slices white sharp cheddar cheese, cut into quarters

Preparation

Step 1
Start by caramelizing the onions. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat and add in diced onions, letting the onion soften and turn a golden brown (about 5 minutes).

Step 2
Add the brown sugar and balsamic vinegar to the pan and stir to coat the onions, letting them caramelize even further (about 2 minutes). Remove pan from heat.

Step 3
Combine ground chicken, egg, breadcrumbs, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the caramelized onions and mix completely.

Step 4
Form the chicken mixture into 12 equal size mini-patties. Grill the patties over medium high heat for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or bake on a lightly greased baking sheet in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes, flipping over half way.

Step 5
Top each chicken patty with 1/4 slice of cheese, followed by two small pieces of cooked bacon and another 1/4 slice of cheese.

Step 6
Slice KING’S HAWAIIAN rolls in half horizontally, spread HEINZ mayo on bottom side. Place sliced California avocado then chicken patty. Separate sliders and serve.
