A slider is an American term for a steam-grilled sandwich, typically around 2 inches (5 cm) across, made with a bun. The term primarily refers to small hamburgers, but is sometimes used to describe any small sandwich made with a slider roll.[1][2]

White Manna claims to be the home of the invention the slider.[3] The term was 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.[4]

Sliders can be served as hors d'oeuvres, snacks, or entrées.[5]
