I prefer making my own hot dog buns than to purchase them from the bakery. It gives me the full satisfaction of eating homemade ones especially as good as the one I spotted on Tasty Kitchen . The moment I read how she described the bun, I knew I had to make them myself. The soft, chewy and the wonderful rich flavor that melts in the mouth description by her...I was sold , plus the fact that the bun is sturdy and allows one to pile mountainous piles of topping on it without turning into a soggy mess had me making them without any hestitation :) Read on to catch the recipe !
I have neglected my Kenwood mixer for some time now and it is time to put it into action. And see how clumsy I was....flour everywhere :p This baby does all the work for me. I just dump all the ingredients in , switch it on and I can continue watching my Korean drama LOL! That is the only good thing about using this baby to do the kneading for me :p Anyway , within some minutes, I had the dough ready and can't wait to see how they will turn out to be. Making them was fun and a great therapy for me:) You can make them in big loads and keep them in air tight containers and store them in the fridge. Reheat them in the microwave for 20-30 secs and it is as good as freshly baked ones :)
the dough is pliable and smooth.....I still need to learn the skill of shaping
them into hot dog buns of the same shape....practice makes perfect :p
I spray water on the surface whilst it was baking in the oven for a crunchy crust
see the inside...buttery soft, chewy and sturdy and
the wonderful rich flavor was worth all the effort !
love the crispy lettuce and I want lots of it in my hot dog roll
chicken sausage on a bed of lecttuce with djion mustard dressing
and topped with chilli sauce ....gosh , you tell me, is this good?
