Take a break from the buffet and sample our best bite-sized slider recipes. From beef to pork to seafood and more, these sliders recipes are guaranteed to satisfy your burger craving.
Slider burgers, served on dinner rolls, are a fun alternative to traditional-size hamburgers.
Pork Tenderloin Sliders
One carefree way to serve these cuties is to slice the tenderloins on a large cutting board, set out fresh rolls and homemade condiments, and let guests build their own sandwiches.
Rosemary Pork Sliders with Horseradish AioliAssemble the sliders before dinner. Or, consider showcasing a slider assembly station for your family or friends to make their own.
Meatball Sliders with Tomato SauceThis fun dish is two recipes in one: delicious, easy meatballs and a slow-simmered tangy tomato sauce. If you have any extra sauce, toss it with your favorite green vegetable, spoon it over a bowl of creamy grits, or pair it with pork chops or other meats.

Classic Bacon Cheeseburger SlidersThough we usually shy away from processed foods, we do love American cheese here for that old-school burger joint flavor; you can certainly substitute cheddar, if you prefer.
