Create Memorable Meals the Hawaiian Way

MISSION, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 07/25/13 -- (Family Features) The longer, sunny days of summer offer the perfect opportunity to get together with friends and family for flavorful meals from the grill. To host a get-together the Hawaiian way -- where all of your friends, family and neighbors feel special -- focus on a few well-chosen elements to make even the most spontaneous gathering seem like a carefully orchestrated event.

Start with the buns
The most experienced grill chefs know selecting the right bun is just as important as what goes inside. King's Hawaiian, the family-owned company known for its original Hawaiian sweet bread products, offers a lineup of Hamburger Buns, Sandwich Buns and Rolls to please burger-loyalists and slider-connoisseurs alike.

Serve-up scrumptious fillings
Once you have a great bun, there are endless ways to fill them. Try a light, fluffy and sweet bread to complement savory grilled burgers. Soft and sweet dinner rolls make the perfect pick for sliders. These small buns are great for grilled mini burgers or for something more exotic, such as this recipe for Hawaiian-style Aloha Chicken Sliders. For an added touch, quickly toast the hamburger buns and rolls on the grill for just a few seconds to create an irresistible combination of crispiness and sweetness.

Provide delicious drinks and appetizers
While you're tending to the grill, keep your hungry guests happy with appetizers and beverages. Serve a classic spinach dip in a hollowed out sweet round bread. Treat them to tropical beverages like the ever-popular Mai Tai or the specialty of the islands, POG, made from passion fruit, orange, and guava juices.
