Put all the the ingredients except the water into the bowl your mixer.
Turn the mixer on #1 and slowly pour in the warm water.
Slowly increase the speed of your mixer until the high setting is reach. Mix for 2 minutes.
Once the dough is all mixed together scrape it from the sides of the mixing bowl and place it in a well oiled bowl for the first rise.
Cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm area to rise for about one hour or until doubled.
To make the slider buns cut your dough in half. Then cut each half in half until you have used all the dough.Your dough pieces should be about the size of a golf ball. I made about 14 slider buns this time. You could probably get 16 to 18. For this batch I was making them a bit bigger then usual.
Lightly grease a cookie sheet. Form a ball with each piece of dough and arrange on the cookie sheet.
Loosely cover with the plastic wrap you used on the bowl. Set in a warm spot and let rise until doubled in size, about an hour.

Brush buns with melted butter and bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown.
Remove from the oven, brush with more melted butter.
