Homemade Hamburger and Hotdog Buns

Homemade Hotdog Buns

So you're having a hotdog or a hamburger and realize you don't have any store bought buns in the house?

Do you just change your plans and go for something else?  Do you run out and spend money on something you can easily whip up at home?

Well I don't know about the rest of you, but I prefer Homemade anything....it is 10 times tastier than store bought and cheaper too, at least in my opinion.  So next time you're having hamburgers or hotdog buns, skip the store ones and just reach for the bread machine.

I've tried a few recipes but I always go back to this one from Craving Comfort.

This recipe is for Hamburger Buns, but follow it and just shape the rolls to look like Hotdog Buns when it comes to that step. :)

As you can see the buns are not shaped perfectly, but that doesn't matter as long as you have long shaped buns, you're good to go. In my attempt to try different sizes until I found the right one, I ended up with extra bread rolls which are going to be delicious for breakfast tomorrow. :)

  3. I made these tonight as hamburger buns and they were delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Oh, they did take much longer than 9 minutes in my oven for some reason--more like 15.

  9. Help, what did I do? I made these tonight and the taste was out of this world, but they did not seem to rise. I followed the recipe and used my bread machine. Any tips for next time because I will be making them again!

  10. I was skeptical at first. I've not had much luck with doughs that had egg in them. And it didn't seem like enough yeast. I knew I'd never be able to form them correctly. And.. blah blah.
    I tried it. Heck Yeah! They turned out tasty and not even too badly deformed!
    Thanks! I'll definitely be making my own hot dog buns again soon.
