They say good things come in small packages. This is certainly true for sliders—those juicy, two-bite mini burgers that have shed their junk food persona to tempt patrons at top restaurants across the country. Inventive kitchens are now going beyond burgers, sandwiching everything from pulled pork to ahi tuna between tiny buns to create specialty sliders.
