35+ Incredibly Easy Slider Recipes
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.
Pork Sliders with Smashed Avocado
For smaller sandwiches like these, we prefer to smash the avocado into a spread before assembling so that no slippery slices are lost on the journey from plate to mouth.
Parm-Style Chicken Sliders
These Italian-style sliders put a summery spin on Chicken Parmesan.
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 Aioli
Assemble the sliders before dinner. Or, consider showcasing a slider assembly station for your family or friends to make their own.
Meatball Sliders with Tomato Sauce
This 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.
Tuna Tartare Sliders with Wasabi Mayo
For a little burger with big flavor, try Tuna Tartare Sliders with Wasabi Mayo. This succulent tuna slider comes with a wasabi kick.
Barbecue Pulled Chicken Sliders
Fried Green Tomato Sliders
Start with fried green tomatoes from your favorite meat 'n' three restaurant. Bake them on a baking sheet at 350° for 5 minutes or until warm and crispy. Add sweet-hot pickle chips to the bun with wooden picks for a fun garnish.
Bacon and Cheddar Sliders
Classic burger toppings are all here on these Bacon and Cheddar Sliders. Toasting buns on the grill gives these little burgers a delightful crunch.
Salt-Roasted Beef Tenderloin Sliders
Roast the beef a day ahead; chill. Serve at room temperature.
Barbecue Chicken Sliders with Pickled Onions
Shredded, grilled chicken thighs are dipped in Carolina-style barbecue sauce, a vinegar-based mix with mustard, a little honey, seasonings, and butter.
Mixing salt and pepper into the beef seasons more thoroughly than sprinkling the surface of the patties. Serve with baked chips.
Sliders with Shallot-Dijon Relish
These mini-burgers make fun and tasty appetizers. Although we enjoyed them on Parker House rolls, they would also be tasty on small dinner rolls or sweet Hawaiian bread rolls.
Butcher's Cut Sliders
Who knew it was possible to pack this much flavor into a two-inch-tall slider? Butcher's Cut Sliders are perfect as a nosh at your next cocktail party or enjoyed as an easy weeknight dinner.
Caramelized Onion–and–Blue Cheese Mini Burgers
Small but loaded with flavor: Caramelized onions, blue cheese, arugula, and sirloin fill your mouth with sweetness and pungency.
Italian Meatball Sliders
Sloppy Joe Sliders
Serve up mini versions of a weeknight favorite. Make the sauce ahead of time, if you like. Just reheat it and toast the buns to finish the sliders.
Southwest Crispy Chicken Sliders
With homemade muffins, a crispy panko topping, fresh guacamole, and crispy bacon, you've got to try these Southwest Crispy Chicken Sliders.
Grilled Chicken Sliders and Apricot Chutney Spread
Mini sliders are a fun weeknight meal the whole family is sure to love. Dijon mustard gives the apricot chutney the perfect amount of peppery tang to complement the grilled chicken.
Asian Sloppy Joe Sliders
Bring Asian-infused flavor to the table with this delicious slider recipe.
Black Bean and Mushroom Sliders
Fiber-packed pinto beans are slightly sweeter than black beans but will also work well with the flavors in this burger.
A welcome change from the ubiquitous hamburger slider, this mini sandwich has all the flavor of a great Cuban. The key here is to crisp the bread by warming the sandwiches in a hot jelly-roll pan and adding weight on top of the bread.
Buffalo Chicken Sliders with Celery-Ranch Slaw
These little guys bring big buffalo flavor. Be sure to use your favorite hot sauce.
Beet and Brown Rice Sliders
These bite-size Beet and Brown Rice Sliders will leave you satisfied and craving another. Good news: a serving size of these veggie burgers is two sliders.
Bourbon-Peach Barbecue Pulled Pork Sliders
These sliders are a saucy mess, in the best way possible--leaving you sweet-tangy drips to lick off your hands.
Buffalo Chicken Sliders
For this slider, we tuck the usual Buffalo wing accompaniments--carrots and celery--inside the patty. This gives you all the flavors of a wing plate while also helping to keep the lean breast meat moist.
Classic Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders
Though 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.
Garlic Knot Chicken Parmesan Sliders
Chicken Parmesan meets a garlicky, buttery roll in this super simple yet impressive recipe. Everything comes together quickly with the help of pizza dough, but you could also use dinner rolls like Hawaiian rolls to skip a step and save time. Dress them up with wine, or dress them down with beer and bring them to a tailgate. These sliders also pair nicely with a salad or chips and dip.
Smashed Double Cheeseburger Sliders
Falafel Pita Sliders
We make falafel patties instead of balls because the wide, flat surface area gets extra crisp when seared and baked, a lighter approach to shallow frying. Use any stuffers you like for the sandwiches, or load up as the Israelis do with a chopped cucumber and tomato salad, pickled cabbage, and tahini sauce. This recipe goes with: Falafel Pizza, Falafel, Feta, and Tomato Salad
Instant Pot Pork Sliders with Watermelon Barbecue Sauce
This has all the flavor and tenderness of all-day barbecue, but comes together in a few hours. The watermelon juice replaces the stock usually found in Instant Pot or slow cooker pulled pork recipes, and the rind gives the sauce from extra body. The pork’s sweetness resembles that of al pastor, so it would work just as well in tacos as it does in sliders.
Light the grill for crowd-pleasing, mini turkey burgers — because size doesn't always have to matter. Patty on water rolls and top with pepperoncini peppers, if desired.
Country Fried Beef Biscuit Sliders
Buttery, tender biscuits are the perfect vehicle for Roast Beef Steaks and the Mustard sauce is just tart enough to balance the richness of the meat. This country spin on a slider is decadent, comforting, and crowd-pleasing; great for Super Bowl get-togethers, brunch, or a cold winter morning. We love adding Pickled Red Onion for added flavor and color. White Lily self-rising flour makes the biscuits a breeze, but if you need to save time, just use your favorite brand of frozen biscuit.
Pork and Charred Pineapple Sliders
Hawaii’s traditional Kalua pork requires a beach pit, a whole hog, and a day’s worth of smoking. Our weeknight version delivers all the flavor with a fraction of the effort—no shovel required. Pineapple pulls double duty in this recipe—caramelized rings add smoky sweetness, while the just-tangy-enough pineapple juice makes the slaw a tasty stand-alone side dish. Save time by picking up a peeled and cored pineapple in the produce section—the flavor is far superior to canned rings.
Breakfast Biscuit Sliders
We took the classic sausage biscuit sandwich and made it mini. Adorable breakfast sliders, you have our hearts.
Make a tray of small biscuits by baking the whole batch close together in a pan, then slicing the warm pastries into neat little squares. Next up: sheet tray eggs (add vegetables if you’re so inclined), then cover them with sliced American cheese. Cut the cheese-covered eggs into squares the same size as the biscuit, then assemble your sandwich—don’t forget the tiny sausage patty, and sides of Sriracha and mayo for dipping.
