I am doing pulled pork sliders this weekend for 25. What have you used for good buns? King's Hawaiian rolls will work, but I really want something more authentic. Any tricks to find or make good slider buns?

I found this recipe as a last resort

I really enjoy pan de sal as a slider bun. It is a Filipino roll based on a Portugese recipe. I am fortunate that I happen to have an Asian grocery near me that caters to the Filipino population or I never would have stumbled upon them. I'm told it is commonly available in most Asian markets. It is cheap and delicious with pork.

We have a local bakery, Franco American, that makes slider buns, several flavors, really good. Most groceries I have checked just don't carry them. Try to find a local bakery that is a restaraunt supplier.

Andy, Matt, and Mark thanks for the great ideas. Brown and serve - never thought of those. And I will check out the 99 Ranch Market for anything more exotic.

The pickle comment reminded me that sometimes I go with pickled jalapeņo and melted cheddar. Kind of a pulled pork nacho sandwich. A bit more labor, but tasty.

Costco has nice slider rolls... use them often for left over Turkey or Ham during the Holiday season.. they have them all year round.
