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