Buying slider buns?

smg Jun 19, 2008 01:01 PM

Does anyone know of a spot in Seattle/Eastside/North End that sells slider size buns? I'm not big on using dinner rolls as a substitute as they are so bread-y, so if anyone has any ideas on where to find actual slider buns I'd love to hear about it!

    I have been wondering the same thing. I would love to make sliders as an appetizer for a dinner party. I wonder if any bakery would sell raw brioche dough that you could take home and bake into slider buns? Is anyone aware of a source for raw brioche dough?

      Most local (good) pizza shops will sell you a ball of dough pretty cheap. I roll them out and cut with a high ball glass. Let them rise and bake them quick at 450-500. They are just the right consistency for me.

      I know Marcrina Bakery sells brioche slider buns to restaurants, so you might want to check with them to see if they sell them retail, as well. They come in in various sizes down to 1oz./bun.

        The Freddies' in Central Oregon carry King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls. Perfect for sliders. The BW cuts about 1/2" out of the thickness, which makes them just right. Always a hit of the party.

          Safeway's bakery has potato rolls that may work.

            I saw "slider buns" advertised at Whole Foods (downtown Seattle) a week ago, looked like something they regularly carry in the bakery/bread shelves.
