Is it a breakfast sandwich? Is it an after-school snack? Is it a satisfying dessert? Yes, yes, and yes!
A slider is a small sandwich, typically referring to a burger, but covers any small sandwich (in our case, on a muffin!). The original sliders were first made by burger chain White Castle. These tiny burgers were sold for five cents each until the 1940’s. According to thekitchenproject.com, there is evidence that the term “slider” was what the US Navy called burgers in the 40’s and 50’s. Today we’re taking the slider to sweet new plant-based heights, with our sinfully delicious creation!
- Choose a muffin. Feeling fruity? Or more in the mood for chocolate? How about something veggie-based? Whatever your preference, we offer muffins baked in our nut-free bakery or muffins baked in our gluten-free bakery, all of which are free of dairy, eggs, preservatives and refined sugars.
- Slice in half. For even halves, slice through the top to the bottom of the muffin, or to preserve the muffin top (perhaps for pretty plating), slice off the muffin top from the bottom.
- Spread on your favourite filling. Anything goes! If it’s safe to enjoy nuts, try nut butter and jelly, or a chocolate hazelnut spread, or for a nut-safe sandwich try seed butter and banana, or your nut-free vegan ice cream.
Tips + tricks:
- Muffin sliders are delicious served warm OR cold! Warm your muffin in the oven or microwave and spread on PB&J, or chill your muffin slightly in the fridge or freezer to make a chewier, refreshing ice cream sandwich.
