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.

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

      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.

        Of course, everybody eats six!

          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.

            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.

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

                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.
