When it comes to hot dog buns and hamburger buns, I'm kinda picky. I'll drive extra miles to grab a nice soft bun and one that's not going to fall apart on me when I fill it with all sorts of cheesy saucy stuff.
I know what you might be saying to yourself, why would you spend time making hot dog buns at home when you could just pick them up at the store? Well, that's a judgement call on your part but making any yeasted recipe at home always amounts to high levels of proudness and accomplishment for me. The taste is a million times better too
You should be able to get 12 nice soft buns from this mixture. I added some, okay a lot of grated cheddar, fresh chopped rosemary and sage to my dough. You could play with all sorts of cheese and herbs for this part, because once they're baked the taste is beyond amazing no matter what kind you use. Any hard cheese would work just dandy.
This is what the buns should look like before going into the oven, don't let them rise too far or you'll end up with a dry bun probably full of air pockets, not good and makes for sad hot dogs.
20 minutes later, you should be staring at 12 soft cheesy golden buns.
Let them cool and then slice along the top.
Grill up some of your favorite dogs, bust out some condiments and you did it!
Homemade hot dog buns, strong enough to hold anything you put in them.
