These sliders pair perfectly with barbecue chips, baked beans, and even coleslaw. The pineapple goes great on top of the sandwiches but it’s not a must. You can have it on the side. We didn’t toast our sliders but found that it might be best to do so that way the bottom doesn’t become a soggy mess.
