Today we are featuring recipes for how to make sliders. Sliders are all the rage at parties these days! When attending Blogher this year, I saw sliders at each and every private function. They are bite sized (well, two bites) sandwiches that allow you to savor a guilty pleasure meal, but not over indulge. Use mutiple variations featured here to hit the different palettes of each of your party goers.

Can you say, end of summer barbecue?

Spam Sliders with Quail Eggs Don't knock the spam ya'll. It is a known staple in Hawaii that really isn't given enough credit on the mainland. This recipe calls for a sesame, soy and chili marinating period. Add the egg and some gingered mayo to boot, you've got a unique party meal.
