Where can I find Mini-Hamburger (aka Sliders) Buns?

I'm hosting a BBQ / House part near the end of the month. I am thinking about making Sliders instead of burgers, as a lighter option, maybe even as a large appetizer. But I need a source of good quality mini-hamburger buns. Anyone have an idea of bakeries that might make such a delightful item? I live downtown near the St. Lawrence Market, so any downtown suggestions are much appreciated.

  1. How about dinner rolls? I believe most supermarkets carry a bag of 18 or 24 buns. They are more rectangular than square though. I think they'd be pretty close to the consistency of White Castle, give 'em a blast of steam before you plate them. If you're looking for something square that's small enough for sliders, I'm at a loss.

    1. I know someone who took dinner rolls and a cookie cutter and went to town.... :)

      1. I dont know about you but I cant even find a decent hamburger bun here, let alone a slider bun. If you are going for some sloppy not fancy sliders you could slice hot dog buns into thirds.

        1. I think that Silverstein's Bakery will make them for you if you order them. As far as I remember, they only need a day or so notice.

          1. So I had this thought, why not use baguette instead. cut into slices about 5cm, then split/cut lengthwise.
