ISO Tiny Brioche Hamburger Buns

NovoCuisine Mar 16, 2009 07:03 AM

Hey all, hoping you can help me out; I'm looking for a bakery that will do a custom order for tiny brioche buns. If you've ever had the mini bison burger hors d'oeuvre at Canoe, you know what I'm talking about - it's that size I'm going for (no bigger than 2 inches).

Preferably a place in the east end of the city (Danforth), but I'll go downtown to pick them up as well.

Thanks for any leads!

    My friend ordered brioche bread as their wedding favour at Queen's Patisserie. They have various locations in Toronto. Doesn't hurt to ask if they would do custom orders. Good luck!

      Lesley, at OMG Baked Goodness does great mini brioche buns, she does not have a retail store, but you can contact her through her website.

        I know All the Best was making them over the holidays, and said that they were going to make them steadily, as there was great interest.

          Just wanted to thank you for your suggestion - they are having the buns custom ordered for me exactly to my specifications. Cheers!

            perhaps you've thought about this already but silly me i didn't... if you have a chance to sniff the buns or ask a bunch of questions... make sure it's not baked with any citrus! a couple times i picked up a brioche bun in a hurry to find a strong orange flavour that really just didn't go with my burger.

              Thanks for the tip, I hadn't thought about that specifically but I was hoping to see (smell?) a physical product before ordering just so I know what I'm getting.

              I did go to the omgbakedgoodness site and threw an e-mail out, but there's a minimum $100 order for the buns, which are $6 a dozen.. and I do not need 200 buns; just about 120. I suppose I could freeze the rest, but the buns are a little on the larger size than I was hoping for, so the search continues.
