10 Easy Mini Burger Slider Ideas For Your Next Burger Party

Burgers have had a bad name for years as a simple and unhealthy food. But we all know how much has changed in that department in the last few years. Now all the burger joints are steaming with clientele and eating gourmet burgers is on top of everyone’s list of favourite foods. You can slim them down and strip out the buns or make them a calorie bomb with layers of melted cheese, the important thing is that it is your personal choice. 

We all know why we should be loving burgers, but there are also many reasons why sliders are a great party treat. One of the reasons is that they are simply easy to eat because they are smaller and most of them are served in bite-sized pieces. Becuase they are tiny, you can ask your caterer to prepare an array of different choices for your party and let your guests decide what they want to try.  Or if you want to make them yourself, they’re a great idea because you can make them in advance, meaning no rushing and panicking when your guests arrive.

10 Easy Mini Burger Slider Ideas

1. Pulled Beef Mini Burger Slider

Slow cooked beef is a great slider stuffing and it can even beat the classic beef patty. It will be an absolutely amazing and delicious choice. Try cooking it with spices and serving with a homemade coleslaw. A really great thing about pulled beef is that you can use it in different dishes once you make a bigger batch. You can put it into tacos, or a salad and use leftovers after the party for making a lunch.

2. Chicken Mini Burger Slider
