For many years I thought the word “slider” meant a tiny hamburger, but boy was I wrong!  Sliders are small sandwiches made with slider rolls that come in a variety of flavors, and they are all the rage.  Think meat and cheese melted together in the oven on a crisp roll – yum!

I can attest that all the recipes I’m about to share with you are not only delicious but easy to make.  You can even customize for various occasions – Kentucky Hot Brown Sliders for a Kentucky Derby Party, Apple Turkey Cheddar Sliders using the apples you purchased at the Apple Orchard, Chicken and Waffle Sliders when hosting brunch, etc.  You get the idea 🙂

Ham and Swiss Sliders are probably the most common slider (in my world at least).  These are filled with juicy ham and Swiss cheese nestled in a Kings Hawaiian Roll.  The tops of the rolls are brushed with a Dijon / poppy seed concoction that adds a bit of tang.  These are to die for, and I don’t know how anyone can stop with just one!

The recipe can be found here.

Apple Turkey Cheddar Sliders are filled with turkey and cheddar cheese plus an apple slice or two.  The apples give a nice crunch and citrusy taste.  Instead of brushing the rolls with a topping before baking, I spread a jalapeño mustard on the buns while assembling.  It’s just the kick these sliders need!

The recipe can be found here.

Kentucky Hot Brown Sliders are a great twist on the traditional open-faced sandwich.  You can’t go wrong with warm turkey, crispy bacon, melted Gruyere cheese, pimientos, and a brown sugar/butter topping.  These have a great Southern kick!

The recipe can be found here.

Chicken Parmesan Sliders are loaded with crispy chicken, mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce, and topped with a garlic butter mixture.  Very hearty yet small enough to enjoy as an appetizer – a delicious alternative to traditional chicken parmesan!

The recipe can be found here.

Chicken and Waffle Sliders take breakfast to the next level.  A crispy chicken nugget is sandwiched between two mini Eggo Waffles, then drizzled with maple syrup.  These are a breakfast game changer and sure to please kids and adults alike!

The recipes can be found here.

Try any (or all) of these recipes for your next get-together!  I think part of the name comes from the fact that they “slide” down easy when eating because you can’t stop with just one 🙂  It makes them perfect for a crowd!

But don’t stop here.  If you have other ideas for a slider you are curious to try go ahead and be creative (pot roast, veggies, Cubano, you name it)!

Happy Cooking!
