FAQ About Sliders
Ham and cheese sliders, as well as most other varieties, can easily be frozen. Prep according to recipe directions in an aluminum baking dish, but don’t bake. Wrap tightly in foil and freeze for up to 4 months. Thaw and bake as directed when ready to eat. You may also freeze and reheat leftover sliders that have been stored in an airtight container and reheated later.
There are two things that differentiate a slider from a burger: Its smaller size and cooked slider buns.
When burgers are referred to as “sliders” it indicates a smaller size as well as its extra buttery flavor.
