Have you ever thought about build your own slider bars? This is a simple idea for any type of party or get-together. It works well for kids, teens, and adults. Best of all, the clean-up is minimal and it’s easier to entertain large numbers of people at once than with a sit-down meal.

Build Your Own Slider Bar
When it comes to game-day entertaining, there’s no better way to feed the frenzy than by using traditional favorite foods, like Popcorn Fish, BBQ, and meatballs in an all-new way. The recipes have to be simple to prepare (of course!) so no one misses a second of the game. What brings these three favorites together? A build-your-own-slider bar.
How do you make a slider bar?
To create a game-winning slider bar, place dishes of warm Popcorn Fish, BBQ and meatballs dishes on a table. Warm buns in the oven and place in a basket alongside the all-star dishes. Then, offer guests a variety of favorite toppings (slaw, tomato slices, lettuce, tartar sauce, marinara sauce, and cheese, just to name a few) and place on the table. Fans can assemble their snacks as they please and no one goes home hungry!
What do you put on a slider bar?
One of the best tips that I have to share with you is to offer lots of different options. You can have pre-made sliders if your guests want to grab the basics. But, half the fun of making a slider is putting on what you want.
Also, be sure to consider food allergies and preferences when putting together your slider bar. You will want to offer a vegetarian option for those that don’t want meat. And, you may want to consider a few gluten-free slider rolls for those that are gluten intolerant.
Remember that sliders alone will not make your guests happy. Be sure to include a few side dishes like three cheese macaroni and cheese or homemade cole slaw. And, how about these delicious salted caramel brownies.
How to serve sliders on a buffet
Sometimes, there’s more food than can be cooked at one time. In this situation, sliders are a great way to keep the buffet table filled. Here’s a recipe for how to serve sliders on a buffet:
- Cook hamburger meat and place it in slider buns
- Place the slider buns on a tray with plates and utensils
- Keep the tray out by the stove
- When someone wants some sliders, slice open an empty bun with a knife and then put on some of the meat from the stove
- Top the slider with cheese if desired
- Cover it with a top bun and serve on a plate
This will allow your buffet table to stay full of sliders without requiring you to cook one at a time. Just place the buns out for people to grab, so they can prepare their own sliders whenever they like.
