What is the difference between a slider and a hamburger?
A slider is a mini burger, they are made from the same ingredients but they look different. The difference comes in with presentation too. A slider is often presented on a smaller cupcake style bun whilst a regular burger will be served on a larger bun.
A tenderloin slider is a mini version of a tenderloin burger. Sliders can be made from beef, lamb, chicken and pork and often have different toppings served with them.
