20 of the best Game Day Sliders

Game Day Sliders

If you’re looking for something to snack on for game day, sliders are the ultimate pick! They come in all shapes, sizes, and flavors. From pulled pork or buffalo chicken to classic mini hamburgers.

Sliders are more manageable than regular burgers, meaning they are much easier to eat while watching the game with friends.  Plus, if your game-day gathering goes into overtime (like most do!), there’s no need to worry—sliders stay fresh and delicious even when they’ve been sitting out longer than expected. Just re-warm them and get snacking!

Endless options when it comes to sliders

When it comes to game day sliders, the variety of combinations is endless. The key is to have a winning mix of flavors to cater to various tastes.

Start with the basics, such as mini cheeseburgers or pulled pork sliders. Don’t be afraid to get creative and experiment with unexpected combinations like buffalo chicken sliders, ham and cheese with a savory mustard glaze, or even lobster or shrimp sliders for a touch of decadence.

Best Buns for Sliders

Choosing the right bread for your game day sliders is essential to ensure the perfect bite. Consider Hawaiian rolls, pretzel buns, or brioche mini buns – all of which pair excellently with various fillings, thanks to their soft and slightly sweet nature.

For a healthier option, go for whole wheat slider buns, or even a keto/low carb bun.

Don’t forget toppings, Garnishes and Dipping Sauces.

Let’s talk toppings… For cheeseburger sliders, think about using a variety of cheeses such as cheddar, Swiss, or pepper jack. Load your buffalo chicken sliders with blue cheese or ranch and crispy lettuce. Add a tangy coleslaw to your pulled pork sliders to elevate the flavor even more. Roasted peppers, black olives, or pickled onions make great toppings as well. 

For garnishes and dips, you might consider a classic olive tapenade, tangy honey mustard, tzatziki sauce, or aioli. You name it, there’s a dip or spread that’s perfect for your slider. If you’re in a hurry or are not sure what dips would work, here are 5 classic dipping sauces everyone will love, that you can make in just 5 minutes.

Presentation is key on Game Day

  • Up your “game” and add extra pizzazz to your decor by using festive platters to serve on or decorate with. 
  • You could also serve your sliders on a large charcuterie or cutting board. For a touch of extra flair, consider using mini-flag picks to keep the sliders together and label the different varieties, dips sauces and toppings.
  • Dress up your tables with exciting tablecloths, plates, napkins, and game day sliders for a truly memorable game day experience.

Guests will love the convenience of grabbing and munching on these delicious and portable mini sandwiches, while you’ll score major points for your hosting prowess.
