recipe: homemade hot dog buns

Homemade Hot Dog Buns

(Makes 10)

What food epitomizes summer more than a delicious hot dog? There may be other great contenders, but when I think of warm weather and the outdoors, I always think of BBQs, picnics, and of course, hot dogs. So why not up your game and make your own hot dog buns? It is relatively simple and the end result is only that much more delectable.

Ingredients:

2 tsp active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt

1 large egg
1/4 cup butter + more to brush buns, melted
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Oil (any kind), to grease

Steps:

1. In a large bowl, combine the yeast, water, and sugar. Stir, cover with a tea towel, and let sit until frothy- about 15 minutes.

2. Add the salt, egg, butter, and flour. Mix until well-combined. Transfer to a floured surface and knead for 5-8 minutes. Then grease a medium bowl and place the dough inside, coating it with the oil. Cover with a tea towel and leave in a warm spot for 1 hour.

3. Punch down the dough. Place on a floured surface and form into a log. Cut into 10 equal pieces. Roll out each piece until it resembles a hot dog bun (about 6” long). Put the buns on a greased baking sheet. Cut a slit down the middle of each bun. Cover again and let rise for 30 minutes.

4. Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake the buns for approximately 20 minutes. Once browned, remove and brush with butter. Let cool before serving! 

Note: You can substitute a bit of the all-purpose flour for whole wheat flour, like I did. I always prefer to do a combination of the flours, so I switched 1 cup out for whole wheat. Feel free to substitute as much as you would like, or none at all!
