A slider is a small sandwich, typically around 3 in (7.6 cm) across, served in a bun. The term primarily refers to small hamburgers, but can also cover any small sandwich served on a slider roll.[1][2] The term, when used in reference to a small hamburger, refers to a small hamburger patty served on a small bun. The origin of the term is unknown. White Castle trademarked the spelling variant "Slyder" and used it between 1985 and 2009.[3]

Sliders can be served as an hors d'oeuvre, appetizer, amuse-bouche, or entrée.[4]
