We tried these burgers during the Memorial Day weekend and they were a big hit. Here is another idea to use with Hawaiian rolls. The Hawaiian bread comes in the form of round bread loafs, dinner rolls, and even hot dog buns. We tried the hot dog buns for the hot dogs we grilled and they were great. We even found a clever use for the leftover hot dog buns. When they are split in two, each slice is the perfect size for making pieces of french toast the next morning for breakfast!
