Heat oven to 375°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil; place wire rack in pan. In large bowl, mix beef, Sriracha and Worcestershire sauces, onion powder and salt. Shape mixture into 18 (1 1/2-inch) balls. Press thumb in center of each to form an indent. Press 1 cheese cube into center of each ball, sealing it inside. Flatten each ball slightly and place on rack. Bake 20 to 23 minutes or to internal temperature of 160°F. Cool 2 to 3 minutes.
To assemble each slider: Place flat side of donut hole on bottom. Layer a piece of bacon, burger, lettuce, pickle and tomato half. Top with other half of donut hole. Secure all with wooden skewer. Sprinkle with candy sprinkles. Serve immediately.
- Freeze cheese cubes up to 2 days in advance. Make meatballs ahead of time; insert cheese when ready to bake.
- Try different cheeses - mozzarella string cheese, pepper Jack.
- To make portioning balls easier, use a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop.
