Bacon, beer, and cheese curds makes the sloppy totally worth it! Perfect for a crowd or a quick and easy meal at home.


 1.50 lbs ground beef
 8 slices bacon, chopped
 ½ yellow onion, chopped
 ½ cup ketchup
 ¼ cup tomato paste
 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
 1 cup stout beer
 ½ cup beef broth
 2 cups Natural White Cheddar Cheese Curds (or your favorite flavor!), chopped
 12 brioche buns (slider size) - or 6 regular size

In a large skillet, after cooking bacon, remove bacon and all but 2 tablespoons of the fat.


Add onions and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until softened.


Add in the beef, cook well over medium heat, breaking it down only to small grape sizes. Cook until well browned.


Stir in ketchup, tomato paste, Worchestershire, Dijon, beer, and beef broth.


Continue cooking until the sauce starts to evaporate and the mixture becomes "sloppy", versus "soupy" (about 5-6 minutes).


Add the chopped cheese curds and bacon one minute before serving.


Spoon the mixture over toasted brioche buns.
