I'll see your home-made sourdough loaf...

...and raise you eight home-made hot dog buns. We got a hankerin' for hot dogs the other day, so Ken ordered some for our most recent on-line shopping trip. I used the last of our yeast to make this batch of hot dog buns. Fortunately, we found yeast at the other supermarket for our next on-line order, which is scheduled for pick up on Wednesday morning. We're keeping our fingers crossed.

Freshly baked hot dog buns cooling on the rack.

In addition to some standard pork hot dogs, Ken ordered a package of chicken hot dogs, which is what we ate on Monday. He made some pickle relish to go with the spicy Dijon mustard. I grilled the hot dogs and deep fried a batch of sweet potato fries (frozen from the supermarket). We each ate two hot dogs, so there are four buns left for another meal or two.

A chicken hot dog before I topped it with relish. The mustard's spread on the inside of the bun.

We had some rain over night, but not as much as the weather people forecasted. There was a little thunder, too, but nothing violent. We need it to dry out now so we can work on preparing the garden plot for planting.

  1. What lovely, even sized buns, they look delicious!
    Are you getting fresh or dried yeast? We managed to get a large pack of dried fast yeast from our local corn merchant a couple of weeks ago. The individual sachets are more convenient but this will last months - hopefully until after the crisis, but who knows?

  2. Do those and that look delicious! And I love the mustard on the bun the way you did it. So neat and tidy.

  5. They look good! I can’t remember the last time I ate a hot dog but I’m thinking the next one will be in the near future.

  6. jean, we've been getting fresh from Intermarché, but they are out. We ordered dried yeast for today's pick up. I'm hoping they will have still had it.

    mitch, but of course!

    evelyn, it's a pretty easy recipe...

    judy, :)

    bettyann, I never liked hot dogs as a kid, preferring hamburgers. But I've developed a taste for them over the years.
