  • 9

Do you know where I can get small hambuger buns for sliders? Anywhere between Santa Monica and Alhambra would be great. Thanks in advance.

  1. You can use dinner rolls, as they're about the same thing. Some local bakeries might make some custom buns for you if you give them advanced notice. I had to use some dinner rolls from Bristol Farms once for a small party. You pay through the tooth at BF, but I ran out of time.

      Judi AU posted about soft and buttery rolls at Thee's Bakery in the L.A. Farmers Market. While I haven't tried them myself, I trust Judi's food judgment in general

    2. King's Hawaiian Rolls! Any grocery store -- ANY grocery store -- will have them.

        i 2nd kings - i've used them numerous times for sliders...they are perfect !

      2. What about a hotdog bun cut in thirds?

        1. DH and I made sliders on Monday night and used dinner rolls (we wanted whole wheat buns, so this worked perfectly).

          1. Thanks for the recommendations. My friend (and caterer) used Hawaiian Rolls in the past and didn't think that they went so well with the flavors in her sliders. Dinner rolls are a good idea, though! Thanks!

            1. I think Whole Foods has them. I remember having some whole wheat ones at a friend's house; I'm pretty sure they were either from WF or TJ's.

              1. What about making your own at home using store-bought bread dough and using a cookie/biscuit cutter and/or glass to cut to size needed? Or, maybe you can talk a local burger joint who has the mini-buns you are looking for to sell some to you?
