Sliders: more than just little burgers. There’s an art to making delicious sliders. Follow these five tricks for ultimate slider deliciousness, every time you grill turkey, mushrooms, or chicken.

1. Little Buns

You’ve got to find the right buns for your sliders to get the proper bread-to-filling ratio. If you can’t find good brioche slider rolls, consider cutting hot dog buns in halves or thirds.

2. Mayonnaise

You’ll want something rich and gooey to ensure moistness in every slider bite. Garlic-rosemary aioli fits the bill.

3. Pickles

They add an excellent crunch. You can even make your own.

4. Sloppiness

All sliders are messy–that’s a given. But some are so rich and gooey you can’t resist ’em–notably, Sloppy Joe Sliders

5. Make ’em Veg

Mini portobellos are completely key.
