Chicago Style Hot Dogs
Chicago Style Hot Dogs are as near as you’re going to come to eating one of these without actually traveling to the Windy City. I’m going to go through all of the individual toppings and demonstrate how to make a poppyseed bun from scratch. Last year, I traveled to Chicago for the first time and had the finest time everrr! It’s without a doubt one of my favorite cities in the whole country. After that trip, Josh and I discussed the possibility of relocating to Chicago, but the winters would be brutal.
So, for the time being, I’m going to stick to making Chicago dogs.
For those of you who haven’t tried one before, you’re in for a real treat.
What is a Chicago Dog?
- This hot dog is boiling, which is normally against everything I believe in, but I really enjoy boiled hot dogs, and these are delicious cooked. However, if you happen to be near a grill because, well, it’s the Fourth of July, throw them on the grill! I’d also suggest grilling the tomatoes and peppers alongside the steaks. I say go crazy, go odd
- That’s what I mean. Chicago dogs must contain a few ingredients, which are as follows: tomatoes (sliced into wedges)
- Sweet relish
- Sport peppers or pepperoncinis
- Chopped white onion or yellow onion
- A touch of celery salt
- And lots and plenty of mustard (see recipe below).
I’ll admit that this combination is a little unusual at first glance, but it all makes sense after you bite into it. A soft bun topped with poppy seeds is required. Sadly, most hot dog buns do not include poppy seeds; but, don’t worry, I have a remedy for you down in the recipe below.
How to Make a Chicago Style Hot Dog:
- Prepare the Hot Dogs. The most distinguishing characteristic of Chicago Style Hot Dogs is that they are boiled. Normally, I’m not a fan of the boiling hot dog, but in this case, I think it’s a good idea because all of the toppings need to be prominent
- Prepare the garnishes. While the hot dogs are boiling, prepare all of the veggies by slicing and dicing them. When you’re ready to serve, stack the hot dogs in a poppyseed bun and top with the tomatoes, relish, celery salt, white onion, and mustard
- Then serve immediately.
How to make a Poppyseed Bun:
Chicago Style Hot Dog Buns are distinguished by the fact that they must be consumed with a poppyseed bun. Because these can be difficult to come by outside of Chicago, I went ahead and devised a method of enhancing a standard hot dog bun with a variety of toppings.
- Egg wash should be applied to the buns. Place the buns on a baking sheet and brush the tops and sides of the buns with a beaten egg
- Then sprinkle with the remaining ingredients. Make sure all of the bun pieces that were brushed have poppy seeds on them
- Bake. Bake in the oven for a few minutes to help solidify the egg wash and warm the buns up.
Course:Dinner Cuisine:American BBQ (Chicago Style) is the keyword here. Dogs on a stick Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 7 minutes Time allotted: 17 minutes Approximately 6 to 8 hot dogs per serving
- (6) hot dog buns
- (1) big egg
- (1) tablespoon poppy seeds
- (6) beef hot dogs
- (3) dill picklescut into wedges
- (2) tomatoescut into wedges
- 1/2 small yellow or white onionpeeled and diced
- (6) sport peppers or pepperoncini peppers
- (3) tablespoons sweet relish
- Celery salt
- (6) all-beef hot dogs
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper. Place the hot dog buns on a baking sheet, one on top of the other. In a small bowl, whisk together the 1 egg and the 1 teaspoon of salt. Egg wash should be applied to the tops of the buns, and poppy seeds should be sprinkled on top. Bake for 5 minutes in the oven after transferring to a baking sheet. Remove the item and place it aside
- Bring a medium-sized saucepan filled halfway with water to a rolling boil. After dropping the hot dogs into the boiling water, cover the pan with a lid and turn off the heat. Allow the hot dogs to stand for 5 minutes. Each of the hot dog buns should have one hot dog within it. Each hot dog should be topped with a squirt of yellow mustard. Then, toss in a handful of sliced onion, a teaspoon of sweet relish, a few pepperoncini, tomatoes, and a dill pickle to finish off the sandwich! Each hot dog should have a pinch of celery salt on it. Eat and serve as soon as possible
350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) oven temperature Place parchment paper on a baking pan and set aside. Using a baking sheet, arrange the hot dog buns side by side. The 1 egg and the 1 tablespoon of water should be combined in a small mixing basin. The poppy seeds should be sprinkled on top of the buns after they’ve been brushed with the egg wash. Bake for 5 minutes in the oven after transferring the pan to the oven. Discard and put somewhere else. Heat the water in a medium-sized saucepan until it comes to a boil.
Allow the hot dogs to stand for 5 minutes.
Squirt some yellow mustard on top of each hot dog bun.
Season each hot dog with a pinch of celery salt.

Tips from our Bakers
- The Midwest is home to a variety of culinary traditions, one of which is the humble hot dog, which may come as a surprise to some. Hot dogs are taken extremely seriously in Chicago, especially by the locals. The sheer number of toppings available, as well as the precise order in which they should be applied on the dog of your choosing, is almost overwhelming. Starting with the Chicago Red Hot, which is “dragged through the garden,” there are other options. Specifically, a Vienna Beef Frank with the following toppings: yellow mustard
- Sweet green pickle relish
- Chopped onion
- A kosher dill pickle spear
- “sport” peppers (small spicy green peppers pickled in vinegar)
- Celery salt
- And a kosher dill pickle spear. This is the dog that can be found at Wrigley Field, the home of the Chicago Cubs. Others veer from the path, but in general, a Chicago hot dog will contain onions, sauerkraut, hot peppers, mustard, and the brightest neon green relish you’ve ever seen atop it. Sometimes it’s chili, and other times it’s cheese. Ketchup? It’s perfectly fine, if you absolutely have to
- People in Chicago are far too nice to sneer at you, but at the very least you will have established yourself as a non-native. Can you replace another sort of seed for the poppy seeds? Alternatively, you might leave the seeds out totally. It is possible to create these buns with whole wheat flour, but you will not get a genuine Chicago hotdog bun. It will modify the texture and flavor of the meat, but that is a given. To begin, substitute 2/3 cup whole wheat flour for 2/3 cup all-purpose flour in a 9-by-13-inch baking pan. If you enjoy the outcome, you may increase the amount of whole wheat flour you use next time. Want to bake these buns ahead of time? If you want to make yeast rolls that are more soft and last longer, try using the tangzhong technique, which is an Asian approach. To begin, measure out the flour and water that you will be using in the recipe and set them aside. Take 3 tablespoons of the measured flour and 1/2 cup of the measured water and combine them in a saucepan over medium-high heat until the flour is completely dissolved. Cook the mixture, whisking continually, until it thickens and becomes a thick slurry, about 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes (depending on your blender). Transfer the heated mixture to a mixing basin and allow it to cool to lukewarm before mixing it in with the remaining flour, water, and other dough ingredients until well combined and smooth. Follow the directions for making the recipe. Your completed buns should remain soft and fresh for several days if they are wrapped properly and stored at room temperature.
A Chicago-Style Hot Dog Is In A League Of Its Own
As finicky about hot dogs as New York is about pizza, Chicago is equally picky about them. Not only are the toppings precise, but the order in which they are placed is also critical. It’s been “dragged through the garden,” as the locals say, and we are in awe at how much we like this piece. Because poppy seed hot dog buns and sport peppers are difficult to come by outside of Chicago, we created our own buns and substituted another pickled green pepper for the sport pepper (don’t get angry with us).
Our slow-cooker hot dogs are perfect for when you need to create a large number of hot dogs at once.

- Like New York, Chicago is particular about its hot dogs and as picky about its pizza. There are precise toppings, but there is also a specific order in which they must be placed. It’s been “dragged through the garden,” as the locals say, and we are in awe of how much we like it so much. Due to the difficulty in locating poppy seed hot dog buns and sport peppers outside of Chicago, we created our own buns and substituted another pickled green pepper (don’t be furious at us) instead.

Homemade Hot Dog Buns
My partner and I were wanting the Chicago-style hot dogs that we had enjoyed on our first trip to Chicago a few months back, so we went out and got some the other week. We were looking over recipes on the internet when I came across a recipe for homemade hot dog buns. I was quite pleased about this since I’ve been wanting to build my own hot dog roll for quite some time now and this was the perfect opportunity. In addition, I could quickly transform these handmade buns into some poppy seed buns, which are essential for Chicago hot dogs, with no effort.
These are quite simple to prepare in terms of bread, and you will be amazed at how delicious they taste!
It will leave a lasting impression on your friends and family when you remark, “Yeah, I made these, no big deal!” Although this is a completely fictitious scenario, it is one that may occur.
- 1 tbsp. granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp. active dry yeast
- 14 cup warm water
- 1 cup warm milk
- 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
- 1 tsp. salt
- 3 cups (plus more if necessary) all-purpose flour
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp. cold water
- 2 tbsp. poppy seeds (optional)
- Using the paddle attachment on a stand mixer equipped with a bowl, combine sugar, yeast, and warm water until well combined. Allow approximately 5 minutes of resting time for the yeast mixture. It ought to get foamy. To the yeast mixture, add the warm milk, vegetable oil, salt, and 1 1/2 cups of the flour. Stir well. Mix for approximately 2 minutes on medium-high speed. Change to the dough hook attachment and reduce the speed of the mixer to low. 14 cup at a time, add extra flour until the dough comes together and pulls away from the edges of the basin
- Allow the mixer to run for 8-10 minutes on low speed to knead the dough, then stop. Using cooking spray, coat a large mixing bowl. Form the dough into a ball and set it in the greased mixing bowl, rotating it to coat it well. Allow for 1 hour of rising time by covering the bowl with a clean cloth or plastic wrap. It should be double the size it is now. Once the dough has doubled in size, punch it down and place it on a lightly floured board. Make eight to ten equal-sized balls out of the dough. (I divided the dough by weighing it on my kitchen scale and measuring it.) I also prepared 8 rolls, which turned out to be a touch too large for regular-sized hot dogs.)
- Roll the dough balls into long rolls in your hands as if they were sushi. Each one should be around 4 and 12 inches long, and then flatten each one gently with your palm. Poppy seeds can be used as a topping if desired
- Sprinkle a baking sheet with poppy seeds and lightly roll each dough piece in the poppy seeds. Place the rolls on a baking sheet so that they are evenly spaced out on the baking sheet. Cover with a cloth and let aside for approximately 45 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees when there are 15 minutes remaining in the dough’s resting time. To make egg wash, whisk together the egg and water in a small bowl until well combined. Sprinkle each roll with poppy seeds (if using) after brushing it with the egg wash on top. Place the rolls in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the rolls are golden brown. When the roll is finished, it will be faintly golden brown. Using a sharp knife, cut lengthwise through the rolls, leaving the other side unopened. Remove from baking sheet and let to cool on wire rack. When ready to serve rolls, slice lengthwise, dragging the knife just 2/3 of the way through, leaving the other side closed. Ensure that the bag or container is sealed.
Sugar, yeast, and warm water should be combined in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Allow about 5 minutes of resting time for the yeast mixture to work. A frothy consistency is desirable. In a separate bowl, whisk together the yeast mixture and 1 1/2 cups of the flour until smooth. For approximately 2 minutes, mix on medium-high speed. Insert dough hook attachment and reduce speed to low on the mixer to prevent overheating. 14 cup at a time, add extra flour until the dough comes together and pulls away from the edges of the basin.
- A big mixing bowl should be greased.
- 1 hour after covering with a clean towel or plastic wrap, remove the cover.
- Make 8-10 equal-sized balls out of the dough mixture.
- ; Make lengthy rolls of dough with your hands by rolling the dough balls in them.
- Place the rolls on a baking pan and make sure they are evenly distributed.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees when there is 15 minutes remaining on the dough’s resting time.
- Brush the tops of each roll with the egg wash and sprinkle each with the poppy seeds (if using).
- When the roll is finished, it will have a light golden color to it.
When slicing lengthwise, just cut about two-thirds of the way through the roll and leaving the other side closed is the best method for serving rolls. Keep it in an airtight bag or container to avoid contamination.
Chicago-Style Hot Dog Buns Recipe
When I moved away from Chicago, I assumed that the dearth of poppy seed hot dog buns in my new area was something that could be remedied by shopping a little more assiduously. I was wrong. The fact that poppy seed buns aren’t widely available outside of Chicago took me a while to find out. I received puzzled stares everywhere I went when I inquired about them, but no buns. Even while some hot dog vendors in other parts of the country provide Chicago-style dogs with poppy seed buns, grocery stores do not carry them.
- Of sure, I’ll come up with a solution on my own.
- the dough is made by hand kneading »in a stand mixer »in a food processor When it comes to fluffy buns, my secret weapon is instant mashed potatoes, and the semolina lends a lovely depth of flavor to the bun recipe.
- Quick Shine is a baking spray that is used to generate a glossy crust while also assisting in the adhesion of the toppings.
- A basic egg wash, consisting of one egg beaten with a small amount of water, will accomplish the same result.
- On the other side, the egg wash is an entirely natural product.
- For those who want to prepare a Chicago-style dog, the usual condiments are: relish (neon-green is favoured at some establishments), onions, yellow mustard, tomatoes, sport peppers, celery salt, and a spear of cucumber or pickle (if available).
- It goes without saying that you may remove anything you don’t like.
- Despite the fact that it is not conventional, I have learned to prefer my home-made pickle relish over the bright green commercial one.
- You should only use it at your own risk.

Poppy Seed Hot Dog Buns — SAM THE COOKING GUY
This recipe yields 81 packets of rapid acting yeast. 1 cup sugar (or 2 teaspoons) 1 cup warm milk (about 110-120 degrees Fahrenheit, but not hotter than that)2 a half cup of all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon kosher salt (optional) 1 egg Plus 1 egg white (for a total of 2 eggs) 1 cup melted butter (about 3 teaspoons) Poppy seeds (about 3 teaspoons)
- In a small basin, combine the yeast, 1 teaspoon of the sugar, and the warm milk
- Stir gently and let aside for 5 minutes, or until the mixture is frothy. In a large mixing basin, combine 2 1/4 cups of the flour, the remaining sugar, and the salt
- Well combine. As soon as the yeast has risen to the surface of the flour mixture, pour it into the center of the bowl with the egg and the melted butter
- Stir well. Give the egg a quick beat with a big spoon, then start mixing everything together until it comes together – it won’t be smooth or attractive, but that’s okay
- Refrigerate for 5-10 minutes after covering the bowl with plastic wrap
- Place a little amount of the remaining flour on a level surface, and then transfer the dough out of the bowl. While adding the rest of the flour, knead it until it is smooth – this should only take a few of minutes of kneading. Spread some oil in the bowl from which the dough was removed, then place the now smooth ball of dough in it, cover with plastic wrap, and let aside for about 30 minutes. Make a few pokes with your fingers to deflate the dough (this is my favorite part), then place it on a lightly floured board and divide it into 8 equal pieces
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Put the logs on a parchment-lined baking sheet, seam-side down, and cover with a kitchen towel to allow them to rise for 15 minutes. Brush the top and edges of the rolls with the egg white and sprinkle with the poppy seeds after whisking together the egg white and 2 tablespoons water. Placing the pan in the preheated oven and baking for 15 minutes, or until the bottom is beginning to brown and become beautiful
Chicago-Style Hot Dog Buns
The vacation is ended, and it’s back to reality (at least until this weekend’s Big Summer Potluck, which I’m looking forward to). I’m actually writing this piece before I go on vacation (since I’m working ahead of schedule and all), and while I can’t say for definite that it was great and peaceful and absolutely refreshing, I have a strong suspicion that it was. And, if not, why not? We’ve got hot dogs, to be sure. And that’s a subject that brings out the best in anybody. Despite the fact that I currently reside in the land of Minnesotans and may do so indefinitely, I am a native and lifelong resident of Illinois.
- I was raised in Chicago and grew up in The fact that you haven’t had a Chicago-style hot dog proves that you haven’t lived.
- But, in all seriousness, they’re incredible.
- Uttering ketchup is like to saying Voldemort.
- I’d estimate that eating these hot dogs kept me going for a good 30 percent of my childhood years.
- This is especially true during the summer months.
- My rendition isn’t completely accurate, but it’s just as delectable as the original.
- And then I devoured one in less than two minutes.

2. Vienna hot dogs made entirely with meat. No, an ordinary hot dog will not suffice in this situation. It needs to be 100 percent beef! You may put your faith in me! Please keep in mind that if you do not pile the toppings on your dog in the appropriate order, your Chicago Dog will not be considered authentic. I’m not sure whether there are any Chicago Dog police stations around, but why take any chances? In accordance with tradition, you must “drag it (your hot dog) across the garden” in the following sequence: 3.
- 5.Chopped white onion (optional).
- A total of two to three Sport Peppers.
- A little tang from the pickle and onion, a little sweetness from the relish, a fun touch of heat from the sport peppers and mustard, tomato wedges to chill it all down, and celery salt to wonderfully complement the all-beef dog and steamed bun!
Traditional Chicago Dogs
Taste the old-fashioned charm of the Windy City! The ideal reproduction of my unforgettable Chicago Dog adventure!
- 12 Vienna All Beef Hot Dogs
- 8 Poppy Seed Hot Dog Buns
- Yellow Mustard
- Chicago Style Green Pickle Relish
- 1/2 white onion chopped
- 2 tomatoes cut into 8 wedges each
- 8Dill Pickle Spears
- 16Vienna Sport Peppers
- Celery Salt
- 1 package Vienna All Beef Hot Dogs
- Place a pot of water on the stove, with a steam basket suspended over the water, and turn on the heat. To prepare hot dogs, bring water to a boil, decrease heat to a simmer, and cover until you’re ready to assemble the hot dogs. Cook the hot dogs in a big saucepan (large enough to contain 8 hot dogs) until they are fully cooked (about 5 minutes). Preparation time is 4-6 minutes, or as specified on the packet. Preparing the ingredients while the hot dogs are cooking includes chopping the onion, slicing the tomato wedges, and counting out the Sport Peppers. Place the Poppy Seed Buns in a steamer basket and steam for approximately 45 seconds, or until they are soft. You don’t want the buns to become too soggy, so keep an eye on them closely. Place a hot dog in each bread and close the buns. Place the toppings on the pizza in the following order: Squeeze a little amount of yellow mustard down one side of each bun
- Drizzle Chicago Style Relish down the other side of the mustard
- Top with chopped onion (to your liking)
- And serve immediately. Each hot dog should have two tomato wedges on it. Add one pickle spear and two Sport Peppers on top of the pickle spear. Celery Salt should be sprinkled very sparingly over the dish before serving.
I acquired all of my supplies at Vienna Beef if you want to create your own Chicago Dogs but don’t have the time or the necessary components.

Chicago Dogs at Home Recipe
Zak’s No-Slip Gallery Tray was used to serve Chicago Dogs. National Hot Dog Day is celebrated on July 23rd, and while it’s difficult to make a bad hot dog (just ask any NYC vendor), it’s always great to go the extra mile once in a while. The Chicago dog, which is effectively a complete dinner wrapped up in a hot dog, comes into play. Let me begin by stating that it is conceivable that Chicagoans will object to this article on the grounds that it is not even close to an authentic Chicago dog. It’s true that it’s not completely accurate because part of the information is exclusive to the Chicago area (like really bright green relish).
- It will also be a wonderful departure from your usual mustard/ketchup situation.
- You’ll need a robust bun, ideally made of poppy seeds, for this recipe.
- Simply brush a handful of your favorite buns with melted butter and liberally sprinkle them with poppy seeds to create a delicious treat.
- Don’t be concerned if any of them come off!
- There will be some slicing to be done, and it is preferable to have everything ready beforehand.
- Finely dice the white onion, then cut the pepperoncini peppers in half to make a pepperoncini sauce.
- When it comes to cooking hot dogs, a grill is the most effective method.
- It is possible to cook hot dogs on the stovetop in the absence of a grill (or if you are unfortunate enough to be caught in a thunderstorm, as I was this day).
- Simply because there is so much to put into the Chicago dog, it might be difficult to construct.
- After that, I add my hot dog and top it with chopped onion, pepperoncini peppers, relish, and a generous dusting of celery salt to finish it off.
- I couldn’t resist taking a bite off of one!
You may imagine that the hot dog gets lost in the shuffle, but that isn’t the case in the least bit. Over the years, hot dog masters have selected all of the toppings, and everything blends flawlessly together on the bun. Consider giving it a go and toasting the hot dog.
Chicago Dogs at Home Recipe
Preparation Time for the Chicago Dog: 20 minutes Time allotted: 30 minutes 6 big hot dogs may be made with this recipe. Ingredients
- There will be 6 all-beef hot dogs and 6 robust hot dog buns, as well as 2dill pickles sliced thin and half an English cucumber sliced thin. 2 medium-sized tomatoes, thinly sliced Half a tiny white onion, chopped
- 12 pepperoncini peppers, halved
- Picklerelish, celery salt
- And poppy seeds for the buns Buns: 2 tablespoons melted butter (for dipping)
Instructions for Preparation
- Take your time prepping all of the toppings before you begin frying the hot dogs or buns. Pickles should be sliced thin (or purchased pre-sliced), cucumber and tomato should be thinly sliced, and white onions should be diced. In addition, I prefer to cut my pepperoncini peppers in half. Prepare the mustard, relish, and celery salt ahead of time so that guests may add them as they like. Brush the outsides of the buns with melted butter and liberally sprinkle them with poppy seeds before baking. Bake them for 5 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit to lightly brown them and help the seeds stay to the pan
- You have two options for cooking the hot dogs: either grill them until they are softly blistered or cook them in a pan over medium heat with a splash of oil until they are lightly blistered. Whatever method you use, they should blister and get faintly burned in certain areas. When you’re ready to assemble the hot dogs, start with a smear of mustard on each bun and then add the pickles, cucumber, and tomato to one side of the bread
- Repeat with the other side of the bun and the mustard. Fill each bun with your hot dog before topping with sliced onion, pepperoncini peppers, relish, and a sprinkle of celery salt
- Repeat for each bun. Take a bite

The lack of poppy seed hot dog buns in my new community was something I believed I could fix by purchasing more judiciously when I first moved away from Chicago. I was wrong. It took me a bit to find out that poppy seed buns aren’t really popular everywhere else than in Chicago. I received puzzled stares everywhere I went when I inquired about them, but no buns. Chicago-style dogs with poppy seed buns are available from a few hot dog vendors in this area, but they are not available at any grocery shops.
- Of sure, I’ll come up with a solution on my own.
- Definitely preferable than store-bought buns, in my opinion.
- Having it on hand is convenient if you do a lot of baking, but it isn’t required in most cases.
- If you don’t have a lot of bread to brush with the egg wash, it can be a waste of an egg.
- Of course, the poppy seeds are optional, so if you don’t want to use them, you may omit the egg wash altogether.
- Celery Salt is a seasoning made from celery.
- atop a sourdough poppy seed bun It goes without saying that you may remove anything you don’t like.
Ketchup, on the other hand, is the one condiment that is customarily absent from the Chicago dog.
You can now create your own poppy seed buns at home, too.
Egg wash or Quick Shine are both options.
Allow it to stand for around 15 minutes, or until it becomes bubbly and frothy.
Allow the dough to rest for 20 minutes before adding the oil and kneading until the oil is completely integrated and the dough is glossy and elastic.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes after sprinkling cornmeal on a sheet pan.
Each piece should be formed into a log that is 5-6 inches long, depending on the size of your hot dogs.
Roll up the formed buns in plastic wrap and let them aside to rise until they have doubled in size, about 20-30 minutes.
You may also spritz or brush the tops with water to make them more sticky, but I find that this causes me to lose a lot more seeds than the other method does.
Allow to cool on a rack. If you like a softer crust on your buns, cover them with a clean dish towel while they cool. This recipe was also featured on Serious Eats and has been submitted to the yeast-spotting website.

Poppy Seed Hot Dog Buns Recipe by K.
Opening Day is set to take place in St. Louis on Wednesday. Despite the fact that I will be unable to attend, my office colleagues and I will be celebrating with an authentic Chicago Demon Dog Hot Dog Bar in our honor. Fun! Poppy seed hot dog buns were unavailable for purchase in my quest to bring as much authenticity as possible into the house. As a result, I decided to create them myself. When I saw a YouTube video from Rhodes demonstrating how to change their dinner rolls into hot dogs, I realized I could simply add the poppy seeds myself, which is exactly what I ended up doing.
These semi-homemade hot dog buns are created from frozen dough purchased from a grocery store.
Preparation time: Preparation time: Servings:18
- 1 Rhodes Dinner Rolls (36-pack)
- 1 eggwhite
- 1 egg yolk
- Refrigerate dough overnight to allow it to thaw. Two balls should be combined into a single mass and rolled into ovals. You can flatten them with a rolling pin if you choose to do so. Spray a piece of cling wrap with nonstick spray and cover the rolls, allowing them to rise until they have doubled in size. A tablespoon of water and an egg white are combined and brushed over the tops of the buns to finish them. Poppy seeds should be sprinkled on top. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
