A slider is an American term for a steam-grilled sandwich, typically around 2 in (5.1 cm) across, made with a bun. The term primarily refers to small hamburgers, and is frequently used incorrectly to describe any small sandwich made with a slider roll.[1][2]

The term was originally used to describe the onion-steamed small burgers at White Castle restaurants[citation needed]. White Castle trademarked the spelling variant "Slyder" and used it between 1985 and 2009.[3]

Sliders can be served as hors d'oeuvres, snacks, or entrées.[4]
