  1. Many have used King's Hawaiian dinner rolls and they now make a slider type roll. Costco sells a bag of dinner type rolls too.

      is their slider type roll also sweet?

        Noticed today at Superior Grocers they have two kinds of King's Hawaiian rolls. Their regular sweet ones and one that's made with all butter.

        we've used the King's Hawaiian rolls for sliders too. They work well.

          I use King's Hawaiian for sliders all the time. The actually have a really good recipe for island-style sliders to compliment the rolls.

        2. I believe I saw them at Trader Joe's, not sure if they are dairy free.

            Trader Joe's does carry slider buns. Also not sure they are dairy free.

          2. all the food trucks in LA use King Hawaiian buns with good results but you have to cut them yourself.

            1. I have used potato rolls from any market. Also great for mini sloppy joes. Not sure if they are dairy free though.

              1. Ralph's Markets sells a combo pack of a dozen rolls in a mix of plain, sesame and poppy that work well for sliders. Of course, if you want sweet, King's would be the way to go.
