hot dog rolls
A hot dog bun is a type of rolls shaped specifically to contain a hot dog. There are two basic types: top loading, which is popular in England, and side loading, preferred in the South and Midwest US. The advantages to a top loader are that it holds the hot dog securely and fits nicely into little three sided paper boxes. Top loaders are generally baked side by side and torn apart as needed, leaving a flat side surface for grilling. Side loaders tend to be doughier, so are more likely to successfully sop up all the juices from chili or sauerkraut without falling apart. The term "Hot Dog" has a double use, because it describes the cured and smoked sausage that is used in this speciality, but it also refers to the famous bread dish made with those sausages. In America, "Hot dogs" are always made with soft bread rolls, but in Europe, and in particular in Switzerland, France, Germany and Austria, they are sometimes made with Parisian "Baguette" bread.
How to select
The freshly prepared home baked rolls are much preferred over pre baked rolls.The seasonings and fillings may be chosen as per individual preferences and recipe requirement.
· Prepare your "Hot Dog" with the sausage (Frankfurter, Wiener, Schüblig/St Galler Bratwurst, vegetarian, Kosher, etc...) and the filling of your choice (mayonnaise, sauerkraut, pickled gherkins, onions, ketchup, mustard, etc...).
· You can also use those rolls to make any kind of warm or cold sandwich (meat patties, cooked salami, steak, grilled pork, spam, smoked salmon/herring, pickled fish, cheese, relish, tomatoes, coleslaw, etc..).
How to store
The Hot dog rolls can be stored in refrigerator and used within 3-4 days.
