New England Style Hot Dog Buns

There’s nothing quite like a homemade roll to put a hamburger or a hot dog on. I’d been making my own for quite some time now, and haven’t looked back since. A basic dough, rise, then shape and re-rise before baking. But, after receiving this New England Style Hot Dog Pan for Christmas from my mom, I have to admit I have a new favorite way of preparing my hot dog buns.

You make the dough, let it rise, then press it into the bun mold and let it rise. It’s then baked in the oven with a sheet pan on top, once browned is allowed to cool, then the individual buns are sliced – leaving you with an awesome bread-to-toasting ratio on  the sides of the bun.

Not only are they great with hot dogs, but also lobster rolls.  Or a fun Maryland twist, crab rolls – which are next on my hit-list to try once I get my hands on some good crab meat (as in, I pick it myself). These buns would definitely add a really nice touch to any 4th of July celebrations you may have going on.

To celebrate the 4th, and festive get togethers – my favorite linen company, Hen House, has graciously sponsoring a giveaway for a set of napkins perfect for you summer celebrations! 2 Bargello Navy (pictured above), 2 Devine Scarlet, and 2 Gracious Persimmon. I can’t say rave enough about their linens – I use them everyday, they wash beautifully, and the colors hold up so well. To enter, just leave a comment letting us know how your favorite ways to spend your time outside in the summer.

Congrats to Sarah, who had comment #21 – I love going out on the boat with the family. I think that’s one of my favorite things to do in the summer too. Take a picnic dinner and enjoy these linens!

    I love having an impromptu picnic. Pile hubby and kids into the car for a short drive to our local beach. Everybody has a great time. It feels like a mini vacation.

    First of all THANK YOU!! I now know how to make buns from Woolworth’s counter…. such memories eating hot dogs there with my mom after shopping. 🙂
    Looking forward this summer to spending more time with family enjoying them and eating BBQ.

    I love to go crabbing in the summer. That won’t be happening in Colorado though.

    I like to garden, but equally I like sitting on my deck with an iced coffee or a margarita and admiring all my efforts.

    I have been wanting to make this style hot dog bun forever. Thank you for posting it!

    I will spend the summer overseeing a house renovation. I’ll sneak in some fun stuff, too- gardening, swimming, boating, etc.!
