Berachah on a slider


What is the appropriate berachah for a slider eaten as an hors d'oeuvre?

If the dough used to make the bun is kneaded with water, then the correct berachot are hamotzi and birkat hamazon, regardless of the temporary nature of the snack. One who will not eat an egg-sized quantity of bread should not recite "al netilat yadayim" when washing.

If the dough used to make the bun is kneaded primarily with pure fruit juice rather than water, and the flavour of the juice can be tasted in the bun, and one eats this only as a snack, then the berachah beforehand is mezonot, and the berachah afterward is al hamichyah. It may be contended that one should also recite separate berachot for the patty, because the patty is not considered an accessory for the bun.

(Berachos 42a; Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 168:7; Shulchan Aruch haRav 168:11; Mishneh Berurah 158:10, 168:33; Aruch haShulchan Orach Chaim 168:24; Shevet haLevi 8:32; Orchos Rabbeinu 59; Piskei Teshuvos 168:10)

Have a great day,
