Hot Dog Buns

We were having hot dogs and linconshire sausages and I needed some buns. The cheap kind you get for about a buck are pretty nasty, and the nicer ones are just overpriced. So I took a recipe for hamburger buns and shaped them into logs.


Hamburger/Hot Dog Buns

1 c. milk
1c. water
2T butter
2T sugar
1 1/2t. salt
5 1/2 c. flour
1 pkg yeast (2 1/4t)
Combine milk, water, butter, sugar, salt in a pan, heat till the sugar and butter are melted, and then cool till lukewarm. In a large bowl, combine the flour and the yeast. Pour in the wet ingredients and knead for 10 minutes. Put in a greased bowl, cover, and let rise 1 hour. Punch down, and shape 12-16 rolls, and let rest 20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven 400*F. Optional: brush with egg yolk and 1 T. water. (I skipped this step.) Bake for 10 minutes, rotate, and bake 5-10 minutes longer until browned.
The buns pre-bake. Try to flatten the rolls, they WILL rise during baking.
I doubled the recipe and got about 30 rolls. They looked great, and will work for sandwiches as well. The bread is kinda dense, might even make good breadsticks.

I'm going to print out this recipe since we're not much fans for the cheap buns either. lol

And thank you for thinking of me with the mochi! Even though it didn't work out, I really appreciate the thought!

Those look really good! I'm not a fan at all of regular hot dog buns. I'm saving this recipe.
