slider rolls in Westchester?

i_eat_a_lot_of_ice_cream Dec 22, 2011 05:32 PM

Hi,
I'm looking for a source for little mini rolls for mini pulled pork sandwiches, like slider rolls. I found them at Fairway today and a little bag (Eli's brand) was $8.99. Anyone seen them anywhere else in the county? Thank you!!!

      In Port Chester at Cassones factory bakery they have "Texas" rolls that are small kaiser rolls. A dozen are about $1.50 They are fresh and work well for sliders

        I've seen them at A&P and Shoprite - even Martins has them.

          Most stores that carry martins have the small rolls, martins dinner rolls also work in a pinch.
          Stew leonard definitely has them, but I would go near that place today or tomorrow. I was there at 10am and there was a three hour wait for tenderloin butchering. Ive never seen anything like it.

            Soon after I posted this I thought of Martin's small dinner rolls, but I am iffy on how those would be with pulled pork. And I definitely won't be going anywhere near the madhouse that is Stew's for a couple days; the sliders in question would be for New Year's. Thanks!

              Might be worth asking Craig at Umami where he gets his slider rolls.

                Why? Martins rolls are delicious - can't see them conflicting with pulled pork.

                  you can not go wrong with Martins small potato rolls for pulled pork. griddled quick with a dollop of creamy cole slaw or kim chee and you have an awesome slider.

                    As mentioned, they are perfect for pulled pork.

                      Thank you everyone. You have convinced me-- Martin's dinner rolls it is. The cole slaw is a great idea too-- I was trying to think of a suitable garnish.

            Thanks for the ideas! I will definitely call Stew's & check Zeytinia. I don't have a BJ's membership. I also am pondering calling Birdsall House and asking where they get their pulled pork slider rolls from.

              I'm pretty sure Birdsall's rolls all come from Wild Hive.

              I just rejoined BJ's. Maybe we can work something out. :)

              Huge bags at BJ's for half that price!

                I'm pretty sure I've seen them at Stew Leonard's (but a call ahead of time would be smart) since they sell uncooked slider patties.

                Have you checked at Zeytinia in Croton?
