I feel like sliders got really crazy big in like, 2009, and were everywhere, then after a year or two we were all like "sliders are so overdone, just give me a full size burger, already" and now we're at a place where we can enjoy a good slider now and then, without it being too mainstream OR too OMG-SLIDERZ.
I personally love a good slider, because it's the perfect couple bites. You can have a hamburger without committing to a full hamburger, ya know?
Evan and I do Hawaiian style burgers or chicken sandwiches a lot. I guess the grilled pineapple is what makes it Hawaiian. For these ones, I also made a little teriyaki mayo sauce. So good!
You could absolutely make these into full sized burgers, but how fun would it be to bring a tray of pre-assembled Hawaiian sliders to your Memorial day BBQ!? SUPER FUN!

I trust that you can grill some burgers. Just do whatever you prefer. I did a simple home-ground beef mixture with salt and pepper, topped with swiss cheese. And also, grill some pineapple slices. I found some amazing brioche slider buns, but any little buns, breads, or rolls will do. To assemble, start with half your slider bun, then layer on teriyaki mayo sauce, grilled baby burger with cheese, grilled pineapple, avocado, tomato, and more sauce. Then top it off with the bun top! That's it!
Teriyaki Mayo Sauce
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon liquid sweetener (honey, maple syrup, or agave)
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
Hot sauce of your choice (Sriracha!)
Fresh ground black pepper
Whisk together all ingredients, and you're good to go!
