You may use whichever method is most convenient for you, or you can try them all to see which approach produces the most delicious toasted buns.

Ingredients

  • 1. 1 hamburger roll (also known as a hotdog roll or sandwich roll)
  • 1 tbsp (14.2 g) of butter (optional)
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) of olive oil (optional)
  • 1 tbsp (14.2 g) of flour (optional)

This recipe makes 1 toasted bun.

  1. 1 Preheat your oven or toaster oven to BROIL for 5-10 minutes, depending on the size of your dish. Make sure your conventional oven or toaster oven’s broiler is set to the highest level. If your oven has multiple broil settings, choose the highest setting available. Allow it to heat up for 5-10 minutes so that it is ready to toast your buns when you are.
  • Cook for 5-10 minutes at BROIL in your oven or toaster oven after preheating for 5-10 minutes. Make sure your standard oven or toaster oven’s broil setting is set to “high” (broil). If your oven has multiple broil settings, use the highest setting on each of them. Prepare the oven by preheating it for 5-10 minutes so that it is ready to toast the buns
  • Put the buns on a baking sheet, cut-side up, and bake for 15 minutes. To toast the inside of the buns, cut or peel the buns apart to expose the inside. Place the bread halves face down on a baking pan so that the sliced side of the buns will be browned
  • Even if you have to cut the buns in half, try to make the two parts of the buns as equal as possible so that they toast evenly. To spread hotdog or sub buns apart without pulling the halves apart, just spread them apart as much as you can without pushing the halves away from one another
  • If the buns are designed to be attached, such as hotdog or sub rolls
  • Tip: To easily enhance the taste of your buns, put roughly 1 tbsp (14.2 g) of butter or 1 tbsp (15 mL) of olive oil on each bun before placing them under the broiler. 3 The buns should be broiler-cooked for 30 seconds or until they are golden brown. Close the door of the oven or toaster oven after placing the baking sheet inside. Make sure to keep an eye on the buns and remove them after 30 seconds or when you notice that they are beginning to develop a golden brown color
  • If you use a broiler, it is quite possible to go from toasted to burnt very quickly, so it is vital to keep an eye on the buns while they toast.
  1. 1 Cut the buns in half or tear them apart to make them more manageable. Pulling the precut buns apart will allow you to separate the halves. If the buns were not already sliced in half, gently cut them in half with a knife.
  • The best time to use this approach is when you are already cooking other meals on the grill. So you’ll have a hot grill ready to toast the buns when you get home from work. You should only open the buns as far as possible without tearing the halves apart where they meet if the buns are designed to be linked, like with hotdog buns or sub sandwich buns. In order to enhance the flavor of the buns before grilling them, you may brush them with roughly one tablespoon (14.2 grams) of butter or one tablespoon (15 milliliters) of olive oil before cooking them:
  • 2 Place the buns face down on a hot grill until they are toasted. Place the buns cut-side-down on the grill over indirect heat, being careful not to burn them. Exclude any sections of the grill where there are huge flames, as this will cause the buns to become burnt.
  • Wait until the charcoals are reduced to embers rather than burning before toasting the buns on a charcoal grill. If you are using an electric grill, make sure it has been heating on medium-high heat for at least 5-10 minutes before you start cooking. Generally speaking, placing the buns around the perimeter of the grill is the safest location to position them when toasting them. This will allow them to be toasted with indirect heat without being burned
  • In addition to using a griddle or grill pan on the stovetop burner, you may grill buns as well. Toasted buns should be toasted for 10-60 seconds, or until they are slightly browned on the bottom. Every 10 seconds, raise the buns up with tongs to check on how well they have been toasted. When you notice char marks on them, take them out of the picture.
  • The amount of time it takes to toast buns on a grill varies depending on the type of grill, the temperature of the grill, and the location of the buns. In the case of grilled items like as hamburgers and hotdogs, throw the buns on the grill at the last minute so that everything is done at the same time and you can serve the burgers and hotdogs to customers as they arrive.
  1. 1 Preheat your oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius). Bake your baked goods in the oven or toaster oven according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Increase the temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius) and let it to warm up for 5-10 minutes.
  • In order to bake the buns evenly, make sure the oven or toaster oven has an oven rack in the middle rack position.
  • 2 Arrange the buns on a baking sheet so that they are facing up. Cut the buns in half or pull them apart if they have already been cut into halves. Arrange them face-up on a baking sheet, with the sliced side facing up.
  • If you want to make the buns ahead of time, bake them for 30 minutes to 1 hour and then put them in a basket covered with aluminum foil or a clean cloth to keep them warm. If you want to add more flavor to your buns, brush them with roughly 1 tbsp (14.2 g) of butter or 1 tbsp (15 mL) of olive oil before cooking them. If the buns are designed to be joined, such as hotdog buns or sub sandwich buns, simply open them up as much as you can without tearing the halves apart into two separate halves
  • Otherwise, simply open them up as much as you can without pushing the halves apart into two separate halves
  • Tip: If you only want the outsides of the buns to be crispy, don’t cut or rip them in half. Instead, make a slit in the top of each bun. Alternately, you may place them on the baking sheet whole. 3 Bake the buns for approximately 5 minutes, or until they are beginning to become a little crunchy. Preheat the oven or toaster oven to the center rack and place the baking sheet on the middle rack. Close the oven door and bake the buns for at least 5 minutes, or until they begin to brown and become crispy.
  • After 5 minutes, you may remove the baking pan from the oven and poke the buns with tongs or a fork to see whether they have become crispy. If they are still extremely soft, return them to the oven for another 1-2 minutes.
  1. 1 Cut the bun in half horizontally. Separate or cut the bun into two half so that it is ready to be placed in the toaster for baking. If you have to break it apart so that it will fit in the toaster, make sure to split it in half equally.
  • This method of toasting will only work for hamburger-style sandwich buns, and not for other types of buns. For this recipe, you’ll need a toaster with slots that are large enough to fit the bun halves. This approach will not work for hotdog buns or other irregularly shaped buns
  • However, it will work for round buns. Before toasting the buns in a toaster, do not brush them with butter, olive oil, or any other substance. It will just burn, resulting in a great deal of smoke and a shambles
  • 2 Medium heat or a medium level of toasting should be used in the toaster. Various toasters feature a variety of various settings that may be adjusted to customize the toast cycle. To toast the bread without burning it, use a medium-high setting on your oven’s temperature control dial.
  • After you’ve toasted the first bun, you may adjust the settings to toast future buns more or less thoroughly. Some toasters even allow you to control the temperature of the toast as it is toasting.
  • 3 Continue to toast the bun for the whole toasting cycle. Placing the bun halves inside the toaster and pressing the lever down will begin the toaster’s operation. Wait for the toaster to finish its toasting cycle on its own and automatically expel the toasted bread
  • What matters is that the bun halves be inserted into the toaster with their faces facing in the same way. The difference between this approach and other ways is that it toasts the bun halves on both sides, which results in a bun that is drier and more crumbly.
  1. Tip: Because toaster strengths vary, keep an eye on the browning progress via the top of the toaster to ensure that the bun does not burn the first time you attempt this approach. The toaster should be stopped or the bun should be ejected if it begins to look excessively black on either side of its halves.

Starting with the wide end of each each wedge, roll it up tightly. If you’d like, you may add a tiny bend to the ends of the piece. Learn how to make Crescent Dinner Rolls by following this recipe.

What is bread shape?

Making the Shape of the Bread Loaves The bread may be shaped into almost any shape you like. Some breads are best baked in a standard loaf pan, whilst others, such as sourdough, are better baked in a circular loaf pan. Although the shape of the loaf is a matter of personal taste, there is a basic procedure for shaping the traditional rectangular loaf of bread.

New England Hot Dog Buns

New England Hot Dog Buns have been around for a long time for a reason. The inclusion of milk powder gives the dough a particular soft and delicious texture, and the straight sides are great when toasted and crispy, and when they are a golden brown color!

New England hot dog buns are absolutely scrumptious when stuffed with buttery lobster!

In terms of hot dog buns, New England Top Split Hot Dog Rolls (also known as New England Hot Dog Buns) are my fave! Without a doubt. When I visited the region last year, I sampled them (in the shape of lobster rolls) between Boston and Bangor, Maine (and even in the upper Midwest), and this series of blogs, which begins today, has been a long time in the making. Despite the fact that it is the middle of winter, a warm, toasty, buttered, delectable lobster roll has a timeless appeal that is not limited by seasonal trends or limits!

That will be the next week.

What I love about New England hot dog buns…

This is how you toast the sides of the bread with butter till they are lovely and toasty and buttery and golden brown. mmmmm. The result is a rich, buttery bun that is crunchy on the surface and pleasantly soft and milky on the interior, thanks to the use of more butter. I’ve previously posted this traditional hot dog bun recipe, which has proven to be very popular on my site as a result. That recipe also works for these New England hot dog buns, which you can get here. This recipe, on the other hand, is different in that it has a bit more butter and also contains milk powder, which results in a dough that is more soft and slightly milky in flavor.

  • Putting the dough together.
  • Although the sides of the mixer bowl will be clean, the dough will stick to the bottom.
  • These lobster roll buns will require a specialist pan in order to get the desired smooth side surfaces.
  • You may also construct your own tray out of aluminum foil.
  • Because the buns will grow sideways as well, the sides may not be as straight as they are now, but they will be just as soft and tasty.
  • This is the same method I use every time.
  • Cut the cold dough into ten portions.

Repeat with the other dough sections. Make a pinching motion to close the seam. Fold the edges over and squeeze them together to seal the seams. A good and smooth surface should be present on the other side of the dough. Prepared rolls of dough in the pan that has been prepared!

How to activate yeast

Fill the mixing basin halfway with lukewarm water and a pinch of sugar, then sprinkle the yeast on top of the water to dissolve. Then, using a spoon or fork, gently fold it into the mixture and let it aside for about 15 minutes to activate. Because I store my yeast in the freezer, it takes a little longer for the yeast to become active in the recipe. However, you should ultimately notice your yeast active and generating a frothy, bubbling surface on the surface of the water. This manner, you can be sure that your yeast is alive and well, and that you may use it to produce great hot dog buns in the future!

In addition to developing a richer flavor for the dough, this makes handling the dough the next day much easier.

However, if you do not have the luxury of time to chill the dough overnight, that is quite OK.

Simply let the dough to rise (proof) at room temperature for approximately 1 hour (or until it has increased in volume by 1.5 – 2 times its original size).

How to shape New England hot dog buns (New England top split buns)

These are shaped in the same way as conventional hot dog buns are shaped. I divide the dough into ten equal pieces and lay out each piece to make a rectangle on a lightly floured surface (width will be a little less than that of the pan). Then roll up the dough firmly, folding and sealing the edges as you go, and move them to the baking sheet. This guarantees that the rolls are attractive, light, and fluffy, and that they are evenly formed.

Substitutes for some key ingredients

The same way I form conventional hot dog buns, I shape them as well. In order to make a rectangle, I divide the dough into ten equal pieces and roll out each piece of dough (width will be a little less than that of the pan). Once the dough has been carefully rolled up, the edges should be folded and sealed before transferring them to the baking sheet. Achieving this results in rolls that are evenly formed and lovely in appearance, light and fluffy.

TOOLS YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

The use of a New England hot dog pan is required in order to prepare these buns. They contribute to the characteristic soft sides of New England hot dog buns that are well-known throughout the country. The Kitchen Aid mixer is what I’m using, but any sturdy stand mixer would make this procedure much easier for you. Pastry Brushes– I used them for all of my pastries and baked good creations. Making a smooth application of the egg wash over the top of the buns is a pleasure.

  • 1 cup milk powder
  • 17.6 ounces all-purpose flour Nonfat or full-fat cream is acceptable
  • Warm milk (12 cups)
  • Warm water (12 cups + an additional 1/4 cup warm water if necessary)
  • 2 teaspoons dry active yeast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter or 3 tablespoons oil
  • Extra oil to gently coat the inside of the bowl
  • For the egg wash, use 1 egg
  • In the mixing bowl of your stand mixer, add the flour, milk powder, yeast, sugar, and salt until well combined and well blended. (If you’re not sure if your yeast is “alive” or fresh, go to the recipe notes for instructions on how to activate it.) In a separate small dish, mix together the water, milk, and egg until well combined. Combine the wet and dry ingredients in a separate bowl. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or a dough attachment, blend the dry and wet ingredients until thoroughly incorporated. Change the attachment on your stand mixer to the dough hook and knead the dough until it comes together. If the dough is too dry, add a little more water. The dough should be able to come away from the edges of the bowl while remaining somewhat stuck to the bottom. Continue to knead for approximately 5 minutes, or until you have a smooth ball of dough. In a little amount at a time, add the oil (or butter) and knead for a further 5-10 minutes (I kneaded it for about 8 minutes), until the dough is glossy, smooth, and sticky to the touch. Place the dough in a large mixing bowl that has been lightly oiled. Make sure the dough is lightly greased on the surface as well as the inside of the dough. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator overnight (8 hours) or for up to 24 hours for the greatest results and flavor. You can cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rise for 1 hour in a warm area until it has doubled in size if you want to bake the hot dogs the same day
  • Otherwise, you can bake them the next day. If you are baking the bread rolls on a certain day, turn the refrigerated dough out onto a lightly floured surface and lightly sprinkle the top of the dough with flour to prevent sticking to the surface. Depending on whether or not the dough was refrigerated (and whether or not it had merely been proofed for 1 hour at room temperature), you may need to press the dough to remove some of the air and you may need to use more flour on your hands and your work area to keep the dough from sticking as well

SHAPING AND BAKING HOT DOG BUNS

  • Set aside a New England hot dog pan that has been brushed with butter. Dividing the dough into 10 equal parts is a good idea. I weigh the dough and then divide it into ten equal sections, as follows: To make a flattened piece of dough, roll out each part into a rectangle about 4 inches wide and 5 to 6 inches long, a little less than the width of the baking sheet. then wrap up the shorter side to produce a tube or sausage shape by rolling it up TIGHTLY. The ends of this will be tapered and longer than the width of the pan, as shown in the illustration. Using your fingers, pinch the seam to secure it, and then tuck in the sides and pinch them to seal them too. In order to provide a flat surface on the opposite side, all sealed edges should be on the same side of dough as the dough itself. Place the rolled-up dough in the pan that has been prepared. Repeat the process with the remaining dough. Make certain that all of the rolls are of equal size. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and set it aside in a warm location for 45 minutes, or until the dough sections have almost reached the sides of the pan, whichever is sooner. This may take a bit more than 45 minutes during the winter, and it may take less than 45 minutes on really hot summer days. About 30 minutes before baking, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit/180 degrees Celsius
  • To make the egg wash, crack an egg into a small dish and gently whisk it together. Bake the hot dog rolls in the preheated oven until they are golden brown on top and sound hollow when tapped, about 15 minutes. This should take around 15-20 minutes. Remove the buns from the oven and set them aside to cool until they can be handled gently. To keep the buns until they are ready to be used, carefully take them from the pan and place them in an airtight container. Before storing the buns, you can gently tear them apart with your fingers. It is best if you consume it the same day. Refrigerate them for a couple of days or freeze them for later use.

PREPARING THE BUNS FOR HOT DOGS

  • Softened butter should be spread on the two soft sides of the bun. Using a nonstick pan, cook the ingredients over medium heat. When the pan is heated, toast each side of the bread that has been buttered until golden brown. The process might take anything from 2-4 minutes each side. A bread knife is used to delicately chop down the length of the top of the bun to form a split top bun. ‘Now that the buns are ready to be used,’

If you are unsure whether your yeast is active or fresh, you can do the following tests.

  1. Place 1/2 cup of warm water in a mixing basin and stir in 1 tablespoon of sugar until combined. Stir in the yeast and let aside for about 15 minutes to allow it to activate. Once the yeast has been activated, it should appear frothy and bubbly on the surface after 15 minutes of mixing
  2. Then add the flour, milk powder, remainder of the sugar and salt, milk and egg mixture to the same mixing bowl and stir until well combined. Step 3 should be followed.

Additionally, you may use my recipe for REGULAR HOT DOG BUNS in order to create this. It’s less sticky than this recipe, which is a plus. It is still soft, but it is less buttery, and it does not contain milk powder.

Chef John’s Hot Dog Buns

Exceptionally nice and unique. I prepared it according to the ingredients. Because I’m quite busy and tending to a sick friend, I used the bread machine to create the dough and allow it to rise for the first time (1 hour, 28 minutes). I then pulled the dough out of the machine and moulded it, following Chef John’s instructions for the rest of the process. In order to make foot long buns (I don’t have a large enough skillet for foot longs), I brushed melted butter over the edges and bottom of the buns after baking them in the oven.

Light, flavorful, and crunchy on the outside, these hot dog buns are nothing like a “normal” hot dog bun.

Hot dogs like this go above and beyond the typical hot dog.

So much so that I sprinkled poppy seeds on half of the buns I baked (without seeds on the others).

Most helpful critical review

These did not seem to work very well for me. They came out with a dry feel and a thick texture. I want a bun that is light and airy. Perhaps it was something I did, or perhaps it was the weather circumstances. The fact that there are so many positive reviews suggests that it was definitely something I did! This review should not stop you from giving it a go. It was most likely a clerical error on my side! More information can be found at

  • When I first attempted this, I prepared 8 buns, which corresponded to the number of servings specified in the recipe.
  • Since then, I’ve begun creating 12 buns from the same quantity of dough, and I’ve found that this method produces buns of the right size.
  • King Arthur Flour sells a split-top pan, which is ideal for baking pies.
  • Everything tastes better when the bread is warm both on the inside and outside while being loaded with fried clams or lobster salad, as well as grilled hot dogs or sausage!
  • Not a single item was changed I learnt many years ago from my lovely mother that baking is an art and that changing something in a fantastic recipe runs the risk of destroying the whole thing.
  • Thank you, Chef John, for taking the time to share this recipe with us.
  • The interior is light and fluffy, and the outside has a wonderful buttery crust.

I did watch the video to make sure I shaped them correctly, and it was quite beneficial.

You will never want to eat a packaged bun again once you have tried them!

However, I made a blunder with them.

That’s not something you can do.

Getting the correct consistency out of the dough was simple, and the finished product was just stunning.

I’m considering using this recipe for bread sticks as well.

They came out with a dry feel and a thick texture.

Easy Homemade Top-Sliced Hot Dog Buns

Easy homemade hot dog buns will take your summer hot dogs to the next level. Besides having tall soft sides that toast up wonderfully, these top-sliced buns are made in the New England way. A BBQ’d summer hot dog will always have a place on my menu, no matter how lowly the occasion may have been. So why would you settle for a store-bought bun when you can easily bake your own instead? Hot dog buns with a top-sliced cross section are not only excellent for hot dogs, but they are also excellent for other delights such as lobster rolls.

  • First and foremost, I adore top-sliced hot dog buns.
  • Second, they feature tall, soft sides, which allows them to be toasted on the exterior when toasted.
  • Toasting makes them nice and firm, which makes them very simple to grip without squishing when you want to.
  • I despise it when this happens.

Cook’s Notes

This recipe will yield 8 buns in a matter of hours, the most of which will be spent raising the dough. They can be prepared ahead of time. Simply allow it cool fully before storing in an airtight container. They also freeze exceptionally well.

Top-Sliced Hot Dog Buns

For 8 buns, a 7×11-inch baking pan (sometimes known as a “brownie pan”) is the appropriate size. They are readily available and reasonably priced, so if you want to make these buns (or brownies) on a regular basis, it is well worth your time to purchase them. Please check my advice below for how to minimize the width of the baking pan and bake these buns if you only have a 9×13-inch baking pan.
