A slider is an American term for a small sandwich, typically around 2 in (5.1 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. 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 although their similarity to slider turtles resting on floating logs is noted. White Castle trademarked the spelling variant "Slyder" and used it between 1985 and 2009.
