Paleo Slider Buns/Biscuits

Here’s a simple little recipe to quickly whip up a small bun for your pork or beef sliders using paleo-approved ingredients.

This very easy recipe produces a small paleo and gluten-free biscuit you can cut in half and use as a bun to pile on the beef or pork for a slider. And yes, I’ve got the perfect recipe for the pork: Paleo Barbecue Pulled-Pork Sliders.

Before you try this recipe I want to be clear these buns more closely resemble biscuits in density and texture – they are not a light and fluffy wheat bun clone!

This one will work well as a sturdy holder for paleo sliders, or as a “cowboy biscuit” all by themselves. 

Personally, I prefer to use my Paleo Tortilla recipe as a wrap when creating any kind of paleo “sandwich” for my meals.

I know some people will find this recipe useful, but I just want to be sure everyone understands this recipe will not duplicate the texture and taste of a traditional hamburger bun. :)

    Hello Trina,
    Made these and they were ok but I think they are more like biscuits instead of buns, they are very dense and I think the salt should be taken down a little, but that’s just my opinion and thank you for sharing all of your great recipes.

      I appreciate you comments. I like that they are light, but I agree they are more like a biscuit. I would like to work more on a recipe more like a hamburger bun. Paleo makes it difficult but I will get it done. I just need more hours in the day! :)

    Thanks!! I have a paleo “english muffin” recipe that I was about to use as a standby that is very similar, but I like that this has been tested in larger quantities and without a lot of molding (drop biscuit style), though I suppose a cupcake pan could also work if it turns out more liquidy.

    Do you think I could serve these in place of biscuits for an easter brunch? Or leave them for ham sandwiches after?

      They are very much like a biscuit. I think they would work well with ham too. Give them a try. I’m still working towards a really good roll or bun, but need more hours in my day to get it done! :)
