Frozen Sliders You Should Slide into Your Freezer

The best sliders are all about ratios and texture. There should be the perfect balance of meat and bun. There should be a third element (cheese, onions, etc.) in the mix to add additional flavor and moisture. The bread should be squishy and moist. The patty should be thin, but meaty.

We tried a bunch of different frozen sliders to find out which are the best frozen sliders (and if White Castle frozen sliders are actually good). The results were illuminating! Slide into our best frozen sliders ranking below.

Best Vegan

Gardein Plant-Based Crispy Chick’n Sliders

These are not as good as the rest of the sliders on this list, if I’m being honest. They are the best frozen sliders if you’re vegan, though! They’re meaty and well seasoned. They start to dry out a little and can become tough if you leave them sitting for too long, so the key to enjoying these is to eat them the moment they come out of the microwave. If you add a dill pickle slice and some ketchup, you won’t even notice that these are a bit dry!

Best Plain

White Castle Original Sliders

Frozen White Castle sliders are good. They are convenient and tasty and if you don’t agree, you’re wrong! These classic sliders are lower on the list than some of their other varieties, though. The meat-to-bread ratio is great and the tiny onions are perfection. If you do not like cheese on your burgers, buy these. If you do like cheese on your burgers, keep reading.

Best Meaty

Trader Joe’s Mini Cheeseburgers

There were mixed reviews of these in our office. Some people thought the burger patty was a little too thick, and some people (including me) thought they were great. The bread is soft, the meat is plentiful, and there’s a layer of melty cheese. Plus, these are the only sliders that come with sauce on them, which is a huge win for sauce lovers like me. They come three to a box and they’re $4.49. Go try them now, before Trader Joe’s rudely rips them off the shelves.

Most Unique

White Castle Jalapeño Cheese Sliders

Spice lovers, you’ll love these White Castle Jalapeno Cheese Sliders. They are the wonderful White Castle sliders you know and love with a layer of melty, spiced cheese. I wish they were spicier or had a stronger jalapeño flavor, but they still taste great. If you like the regular cheese White Castle frozen sliders but can get down with more flavor, these are the best frozen sliders you can buy.

Best Spicy

Tyson Spicy Chicken Breast Sliders

These are S-P-I-C-Y! Be prepared. They’re perfect for spice lovers like myself. The chicken quality is great. The buns are nice and fluffy. I don’t live near any fast food restaurants that specialize in sliders, so these are a great option to keep in my freezer for when I get the craving. They are the best frozen sliders for me, but don’t grab a pack of these if you can’t stand the heat.

Best Chicken

Tyson Original Chicken Breast Sliders

I had to put these above the spicy chicken version because these are better for everyone. They’re not spicy, but they have the same great chicken quality. It is so much better than the other chicken sliders we tried. The bread is soft, the chicken is juicy, and they cook up quickly. Good job, Tyson! I love these frozen sliders!

Best of the Best

White Castle Classic Cheese Sliders

I can now say for certain that White Castle frozen sliders are the best frozen sliders on the market. The meat-to-bread ratio is ideal. The little onions are wonderful. The cheese melts perfectly. They’re salty, savory, and absolutely delicious. People want to act like these are bad and they are kidding themselves. These are delicious.
