About Martin’s Party Potato Rolls
As mentioned in past Product Highlight blogs, our potato bread products (such as Party, Dinner, Sandwich, and Long Potato Rolls) are all made with the same base mix of ingredients. This base mix includes both high protein wheat flour and potato flour, among other high quality ingredients. The products resulting from this base have a similar taste and texture to one another; however, they vary in shape, size, and whether or not they are pre-sliced.
Three of our potato roll products are quite similar: Party, Dinner, and 12-Sliced Potato Rolls. All three products are “slider-sized” and great for making miniature sandwiches or appetizers. That being said, they each have key differences making them uniquely suited to varying usage occasions.
The below picture illustrates the comparative size and shape of these three products:
As you can see by the above picture, our Dinner and 12-Sliced Potato Rolls (middle and right, respectively) are very similar in size, at about 2.5 inches. Martin’s 12-Sliced Potato Rolls are pre-sliced (making them ideal for sliders), while Martin’s Dinner Potato Rolls are not.
Martin’s Party Potato Rolls are slightly smaller than Martin’s Dinner Potato Rolls (2 inches versus 2.5), but are also unsliced. While both are great for appetizers or dinner accompaniments, the less substantial size of Party Potato Rolls is what makes them ideal for samplings, small bites, and party hors d’oeuvres.

Our Party Potato Rolls come in packs of twenty-four (two “sheets” of twelve rolls each). Since the rolls are unsliced, they allow for much versatility. They can be served plain alongside a dinner platter, sliced in half to create a miniature slider bun, or any number of other uses. Try them top-sliced for a fancy appetizer. Cube them for use in bread pudding. Or slice both sheets of twelve rolls in half for oven-baked sandwiches. (Tip: they fit perfectly in a 13×9 baking dish!)
We hand out Party Rolls at events and trade shows because they’re a convenient size to sample the taste of our potato roll products without being too filling (especially when there are often many other food items to sample at these events).

“All the Possibilities”
There are truly endless ways to use our Party Potato Rolls. We have seen so many creative recipes from fans over the years, and even tried many new ideas ourselves!
Check out this video showing twenty-four ways to make sliders using our Party Potato Rolls—that’s one for each roll in a pack! What better way to keep your guests entertained (and their stomachs happy) than providing an easy array of snacks to choose from? These sliders are simple to prepare and make for an intriguing appetizer arrangement.
We also like to use Party Potato Rolls for creative decorations! Their cute size makes them perfect for food sculptures and artwork. Check out one example here where we made a “snowman” by stacking three party rolls on top of each other. Or here where we made a Christmas tree by stacking Party Rolls around a Styrofoam cone.
Since our Party Rolls come unsliced and still connected, they are great for making a large batch of sliders in the oven. Simply slice through the entire sheet(s) of rolls, add your fillings, replace the tops, and bake. To serve, simply pull apart the individual sandwiches or cut along the natural division in the rolls!
Here are some of our most loved recipes from fans:
Baked Ham and Swiss Sliders
If you’re a fan of sliders or oven-baked sandwiches, chances are you’ve seen this recipe circulating around the World Wide Web. These cheesy, buttery sliders are filled with deli ham and swiss cheese, then topped with a “secret” sauce of melted butter, Dijon mustard, honey, Worcestershire sauce, poppy seeds, and dried minced onion. Serve these at your next party and your guests won’t want to go home!
Grilled Cheese Pull-Aparts
A fan of ours tagged us in this recipe a few years back and we have to say, it is one of the most creative uses of our rolls we have seen! The concept is ingenious: slice through a sheet of Party Rolls, then flip the rolls inside-out so the sliced side is facing out. Build a standard grilled cheese with whatever other fillings you would like, then grill the entire “sandwich” together. To serve, just “pull apart” the individual bite-sized sandwiches!
