I think of sliders as being small. Just one or maybe two bites. Have never had any. BK used to sell them. Don't know if they still do. Will find out this summer when I stop there on the way to sitting on the beach while I do my sewing. If they do, I will make the ultimate sacrifice, purchase the said product and report back with a review.

Why are they called Sliders?

Is it because all the fillings slide out?

No. Two bites and they slide down your gullet. They are just very small burgers. They are usually sold in fours. Some places will put the fixings on them. Most don't. Just plain burgers on a very specially baked tiny bun. It is a gimmick food. One of those "Oh how cute!" things.

I make pork chop sliders. Pork loin medallions, fried up with your favorite seasoning salt, topped with creamy cole slaw served on dinner rolls. Served hot, two each for us. I fry up a bunch of the pork and stack them in the fridge for quick lunches.

Kylie, the phrase originated with White Castle, an American burger chain. As I mentioned above, it was a derogatory term, owing to the cheap, greasy meat that they used to make their burgers. The WC burgers were (and still are) tiny - about 1 ounce total. People called them sliders because they are greasy little gut bombs that slide right through your digestive tract. They are also considered perfect hangover food.

I make pulled pork sliders. It is a great addition to a pot luck. People can have a little pulled pork sandwich and still have room to sample all of the other good dishes at the potluck. It is also easy to bring to the potluck. I just put the pulled pork in my crock pot, bag up the sliced rolls, and bring along assorted bottled BBQ sauces. it is always a hit!
