Let’s get into these mouthwatering recipes so you can start cooking (and eating!).
1. Cheeseburger Sliders
We’re starting the recipe list with a tasty and straightforward option – cheeseburger sliders.
You can never go wrong with cheeseburgers; everyone loves them! If you want to get extra creative, bring along an array of different toppings like sliced onions, sauteed mushrooms, etc.
While making cheeseburger sliders, you’ll need dinner rolls to put them on. You can switch it up by using Hawaiian rolls instead for a slightly sweeter flavor. This fun take on cheeseburger sliders will have the guests going back for seconds.
2. Chicken Parmesan Slider Bake
Running out of time and need a quick, satisfying recipe that isn’t complex or super hands-on?
Look no further than this chicken parmesan slider recipe. You’ll use simple ingredients like chicken tenders and marinara to make a super yummy dish.
For an even more flavorful slider, opt for Italian chicken tenders. If you can find them at your store, they should have delicious Italian seasoning, which helps boost the flavor.
Or, try using grilled chicken tenders for a healthier option.
3. Breakfast Sliders
While these breakfast sliders are great for a morning meeting, you can make them for any meal! Who says you can’t have breakfast all day long?!
They’re filled with eggs, cheese, ham, and breakfast goodness.
One ingredient that makes these sliders even better is the cooked bacon that is included in each sandwich. You can use breakfast sausage patties instead to create an equally delicious slider.
Adjust the ingredients based on your needs and taste preferences.
Tip: Don’t forget to brush the buns with butter; this will help create a beautiful golden-brown color in the oven.
4. BBQ Chicken Sliders
We love serving these chicken sliders at BBQ get-togethers! They make for a tasty appetizer, and they’re super tasty. Each bun is filled with BBQ sauce-covered chicken, fresh red onions, and slightly spicy slices of pepper jack cheese.
You’ll need cooked chicken for this dish. Don’t have time to make chicken breasts ahead of time?
Try using rotisserie chicken and shredding it using a few forks.
This way, you’ll have shredded chicken in no time! Make sure to remove the skin before shredding the chicken breast.
5. Easy Meatball Sliders
These meatball sliders are a great way to enjoy the best comfort food less messily. They’re gooey, saucy, and oh-so-flavorful! These meatball sliders make for the best family dinner.
The recipe calls for shredded mozzarella to add gooeyness to these sandwiches.
If you want a slightly more flavorful cheese, try using provolone. Slices of shreds will work when swapping to provolone.
While these make for an excellent dinner option, you can make them for any occasion.
6. Bacon Cheeseburger Slider Bake
Loved the cheeseburger sliders, yet don’t know where to go from there? Try these delicious bacon cheeseburger sliders! As far as slider ideas, you can’t go wrong by adding bacon to an already super tasty dish.
The not-so-secret ingredient is the ground beef that you’ll use to make the patties for each sandwich. Make these sandwiches healthier by using ground turkey or ground chicken instead.
You won’t need to alter the seasoning, so it’ll be an easy swap.
You can also use turkey bacon for an even lighter dish!
7. Buffalo Chicken Sliders
Something about the combination of hot sauce and ranch is so incredibly delicious! It seems to go with everything from dips to wraps and more.
Enjoy this delicious combo on a sandwich with shredded chicken and gooey cheese.
If you’re not a fan of ranch, blue cheese dressing will also work on these sandwiches. Both dressings help cool the fiery heat of the buffalo sauce.
Of course, you can leave the dressing off completely for an even spicier sandwich.
Tip: Make sure to use cheese as the bottom layer to prevent a soggy, hard-to-eat slider.
8. Ham and Cheese Sliders
Ham and cheese is a classic combo that you can never go wrong with! These sandwiches are seasoned as well, so they’re very flavorful. Next time you’re unsure of what to meal prep for the week, try making a tray of these sliders!
Not everyone is a fan of Swiss cheese, as it has a fairly strong flavor.
Any type of sliced cheese should work well in these sandwiches. Try Havarti or muenster for an equally delicious (and more subtle) flavor.
9. Roast Beef Sliders Recipe
Sometimes all you need is a delicious roast beef sandwich! These sandwiches are simple, have the perfect seasoning, and will hit the spot every time.
Adding a seasoned butter mixture to the sliders helps prevent the roast beef from drying out in the oven.
You’ll use whole grain mustard as part of the seasoned butter mixture. If you have a different type of mustard on hand or prefer different mustard, you can use that instead.
Some excellent replacement options include Dijon mustard and honey mustard.
10. Classic Beef Sliders
Have picky eaters you’re trying to accommodate? Have no fear – these beef sliders will keep anyone satisfied! These are great for family dinners, get-togethers, or even kid’s birthday parties.
Like regular-sized cheeseburgers, you’ll be adding lettuce to each slider.
If you want a boost of iron and nutrients, swap the lettuce out for spinach. You may even be able to get away with this swap for kids!
Tip: Assembly is easier if you make the toppings the same size as the sliders.
11. French Dip Sliders
As soon as we saw that these sliders had a generous topping of caramelized onions, we knew we had to include it on the list!
This slider is everything you would want in a sandwich. It has a lovely sweetness from the onions, a gooey cheese topping, and a roast beef filling.
Want to save a few minutes mincing the garlic for this recipe?
Purchase a jar of pre-minced garlic from the grocery store. We love using this hack – especially because you won’t need to clean the garlic press afterward!
12. Chicken Parmesan Sliders
Who doesn’t love chicken parmesan? If you’re a chicken parm enthusiast, you’ll want to try this recipe and the slider bake above. The combination of marinara, gooey cheese, and chicken in every bite will have you wanting to make this recipe every week.
These sliders have two hidden ingredients – fresh parsley and fresh basil. They help perk up the sliders and add a pop of flavor.
Don’t have any on hand? Use an Italian seasoning instead. It’s easy to find at grocery stores. Though, you likely already have this spice mix at home.
13. Bagel Breakfast Sliders
These are the best sliders, hands down! They’re filled with not one but two types of cheese, bacon, and scrambled eggs. These sliders are even served on super cute mini bagels.
Your store may have other flavors of mini bagels – like everything bagels. If you can find them, grab a bag!

15. White Castle Sliders
Who doesn’t love white castle sliders?! While tasty, we don’t love waiting in line for the delicious sliders.
Now, you can make White Castle sliders at home and skip the trip to the nearest drive-thru.
The secret ingredient that makes this slider dupe taste like the real White Castle sliders is the tablespoon of peanut butter that you’ll be mixing with the beef.
If anyone in the group has a nut allergy, you can swap it with sun butter. Keep in mind that the flavor will be slightly different.
16. Easy Turkey Sliders with Butter Sauce
We love easy recipes that pack a punch of flavor!
The Havarti and the seasoned butter sauce help create a unique and unforgettable taste. Once they’re finished cooking, you’ll have yummy pull-apart sliders.
When putting together the sandwiches, you’ll be adding deli turkey slices to each roll.
You can also create these after Thanksgiving using leftover turkey chunks/slices. It’s a great way to use up some leftovers and make a tasty meal.
Tip: Make sure they pull apart easily by avoiding turkey meat overlap.
17. Chili Cheese Dog Sliders
Love chili cheese dogs, but don’t love how messy they are? Give this recipe a shot! You get that super delicious cheesy hot dog flavor, but in easy-to-eat mini sandwiches.
Like classic chili dogs, each slider is topped with shredded cheddar cheese. Add your take on these sliders by using your favorite cheese blend. For a pop of flavor, try shredded taco blend cheese.
Don’t skip the step of slicing the hot dogs lengthwise and into chunks.
Leaving the hot dogs round will make it messier when you bite into the sliders.

The hidden ingredient in these sliders is brown sugar.
You’ll be creating a homemade sauce that’s tangy and sweet to boost the flavor of the turkey sandwiches. Honey or maple syrup will also work as replacements for brown sugar.
Tip: Make sure to cover the sandwiches with foil for the first 14 minutes. Otherwise, the tops will get too dark or burn.
20. Asian Sliders
Gochujang is similar to a spicy Korean BBQ sauce. It’s a super flavorful condiment that is used in quite a few Asian recipes.
Adding it to these Asian sliders helps create a distinct Asian/Korean flavor in each sandwich.
You’ll be using reduced-sodium soy sauce to flavor the beef patties. Use coconut aminos for a slightly sweeter flavor.
Regular soy sauce will also work as a substitute, though make sure to leave out the kosher salt if you’re using this option.
21. Shrimp Po’Boy Sliders
Take a trip to New Orleans without leaving your kitchen every time you take a bite of these po’boy sliders! The shrimps are perfectly crispy and covered in a cornmeal batter for extra flavor. These sliders are spicy, tangy, and utterly tasty.
You’ll be using cornmeal to help create a coating for the shrimp. If you can’t find cornmeal at the store and don’t have any at home, you can use breadcrumbs.

Super tender beef that’s falling apart by itself covered in a homemade BBQ sauce? Sign us up! Don’t let the long list of seasoning intimidate you; this recipe is easier than it seems, and the finished dish is unbelievably good.
The base of the BBQ sauce is made using chicken stock.
Add a beefier flavor by using beef stock or beef broth instead. Stock is preferable as it’s richer and helps create a thicker sauce.
However, you can use either option for this recipe.
25. Fried Chicken Sliders
Can’t seem to find the perfect fried chicken dish? Well, you haven’t tried these fried chicken sliders yet! This is one of the most addictive recipes for sliders.

You’ll be adding the eggs right into the baking dish with the sliders, so you’ll have a fully cooked omelet ready in a few minutes.

Chicken cordon bleu typically includes a breadcrumb-coated chicken breast wrapped around melty cheese. You can recreate this mouthwatering dish as a plate full of sliders using this recipe.
Swiss cheese and provolone add gooeyness and a delightful flavor to the cordon bleu sandwiches.

By sauteing ground beef crumbles, you’ll save lots of time! After assembling the sliders, you’ll be topping each sandwich with a sprinkle of garlic powder.
Onion powder works perfectly fine if you can’t find this spice in your cabinet. It offers a similar flavor to the sliders.
