Making the perfect hot dog starts by making the perfect hot dog bun, I'm talking that homemade stuff.

SUPPLIES USED:


INGREDIENTS:

Hot Dog Buns:

  • 1/2 cup (120ml) warm milk

  • 1/2 cup (120ml) warm water

  • 2.5 tsp (9g) active dry yeast

  • 3.5 cups (525g) bread flour

  • 1 Tbsp (15g) granulated sugar

  • 1.5 (7g) tsp fine sea salt

  • 1 egg

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 2.5 (35g) Tbsp softened unsalted butter


INSTRUCTIONS:

Method:

  1. Start by combining whole milk and water. Heat up (95-98F) and add instant yeast. Whisk together. Let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine all the dry ingredients and whisk together.

  3. Using the dough hook attachment, mix on low speed and mix in the milk/yeast mixture along with the egg and egg yolk.

  4. Continue to mix until smooth and add in softened unsalted butter 1 Tbsp at a time. Mix until thoroughly combined.

  5. Shape dough into a ball and place in a greased bowl covered with greased plastic wrap and let rise at room temperature for 60 minutes.

  6. Punch the dough down, dump onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into 10-12 even pieces.

  7. Shape into a ball and cover with a damp towel and let rest for 10 minutes.

  8. Roll dough balls into 6” long cylinders and place on a parchment lined baking sheet and cover with an inverted baking sheet.

  9. Brush each cylinder with egg wash. Set in a 375F oven for 15-20 minutes.

  10. Remove and brush with melted butter.

Question - The ingredients say to use active dry yeast, but the instructions say instant yeast. Which one is preferable to use?

3.5 cups of flour is not 525g. In fact 1 cup is 120g. 3.5 cups is 420g.

When making bread, always go by weight. So many factors (temperature, humidity, etc) can influence the volume of the flour.

Yes, just saw the comments now. Without a longer second proof they turn out quite dense. Still taste ok but are not very suitable for hotdogs
