How to make sliders into full size hamburgers
If you prefer a full size hamburger instead of sliders, just shape the ground beef mixture into four larger patties. Since your burgers will be larger than the sliders you will have to add additional time when grilling your full size burgers. And be sure to buy full size hamburger rolls instead of the slider buns in the recipe!
Why is a small hamburger called a slider?
A slider is a name given to a mini hamburger. The name slider came about in the 1940’s when US Navy sailors began calling mini burgers “sliders” since they typically were extremely greasy burgers. With just a bite or two a greasy mini hamburger would slide right down, hence the name slider!
