It’s a long-standing complaint that hot dogs come in packages of 10, while hot dog buns are eight to a pack. The bun bakers have managed to get another proportion right, though: A package of 12 slider buns fits perfectly in a standard 9-by-13 pan, making it easy to fix a tray of mini-sandwiches for a Memorial Day celebration.

Many local restaurants offer sliders, in varieties ranging from the original hamburger to crab cakes, because their small size makes it possible to mix and match across the menu and to share with table mates.
