Mini hamburger buns?

jonathan Jul 21, 2006 03:11 AM

Does anyone know of a retail outlet that sells mini hamburger buns? We're having a party on Sat with mini pulled pork and would love to have actual buns rather than quartering full size ones. Anywhere in metro Boston would work.

    not sure if you want to do any cutting, but you could get a ciabatta and cut it up. it'd have enough crusty power to soak up your pulled pork liquids and not be too thick after being divided.

      Try Diamond Bakery in Newton. I accidentally bought mini-hamburger buns there last month.

        I'd look and see if I could find dinner-sized snowflake rolls. They're pretty common rolls for traditional pulled pork sandwiches (topped with coleslaw and served with pickles, of course).

        I like potato rolls for mini sandwiches too, but they have a mooshier texture than snowflake rolls, kind of like Wonder Bread.

          I always serve Martin's potato rolls for hamburgers and hot dogs; I really find them superior to standard rolls. They also make a dinner roll that I'm sure would be perfect. They're available at all of the major supermarkets.

          Roche Bros. supermarkets sells these small bulkie rolls in their (in-house) bakery dept. They're not super tiny, but not full size either. Maybe 1/2 size.. They come in packs of 12.

            Of course, everybody eats six!

              What he said - I served pulled pork at a potluck a few weeks back using Stop & Shop dinner rolls cut in half like a mini burger bun. Ringed them around the edge of a platter with the pulled pork in a dish in the middle, along with a bottle of mustard and a jar of bread-and-butter pickle chips.

                When I make 2oz cheeseburger "sliders" I just use dinner rolls. Pocketbook or cloverleaf are nice.
