Best Burger Buns or Breads

  • You can use burger buns, which is the most popular. Sesame burger buns are great!
  • toasted sourdough bread is also fantastic
  • hoagie style deli rolls are soft and tender
  • try making this sandwich out of pita bread!
  • What ever you choose, this sandwich is truly going to be on the top of your list.

We’ve used this sauce on smoked pork ribs and it was excellent! When the sauce cooked down on to the pork ribs, the flavor intensified and was a surprise hit. Not only is this sauce versatile, it’s delicious when freshly made and even more awesome when cooked down on bbq. Try adding this sauce to a vegetable stir fry and you have so many tremendous ways to use up your favorite honey mustard sauce. Click Here for –> More Chicken Recipes Here and Sandwich Recipes Here.
