We’ve been eating Hawaiian Rolls for years, so I’m not sure why it took me so long to discover this use. My kids love Hawaiian rolls as a side to many of our most popular family dinners. But it turns out these tiny rolls also work perfectly to make slider sandwiches for kids.
Kids (and adults!) love the sweet taste of these rolls. Cut them in half to create the perfect base for small sandwiches. We find a serrated knife works best for that task. Then load them up with your child’s favorite sandwich fillings. From peanut butter and jelly to Nutella with banana slices all the way to ham and cheese and beyond, these tiny buns go the distance.
They work perfectly inside lunch boxes for kids to eat at school or on field trips. You can pack one as a supplement to soup to give kids just the right amount of food to get them through their day. Got an older kid? Make two or more at a time to fill them up.
Since these rolls come in packs of 12, you can make as many as your child needs. Use the same ingredients or mix and match for even more variety. The rolls fit just right into Easy Lunch Boxes for snacks, meals, and more. Kids can even make their own with minimal effort, especially if you pre-slice the rolls. Got a holiday potluck coming up? Fill them with egg salad, tuna salad, or cucumber and cream cheese for a platter sure to please all ages.
The only downside to these tiny sandwiches is how fast kids can consume them. Try one today and see what type of sandwich your child likes best.
