From Hot Dog to Haute Dog

Amazing Hot Dog Buns Recipe



A few days ago a quiestion popped into my favourite food related Facebook group: “What do you like on your Hot Dog?” And than I realised that we didn’t eat hotdogs in almost one year. And on top of that, there was an amazing bread recipe over there that looks just like heaven for little hot dog sausages, a nice warm blanket, soft and lght like a cloud. So, I just had to have hot dogs! But not regular ones, you know, with mustard and ketchup, but very special ones, so special, that I could call them Haute Dogs.


I know that I decided to keep you updated on our “healthier” eating habits and if you read you saw that I named one day per week when we eat “bad food” so this would be one of those days. Don’t get me wrong, hot dogs are not bad, but there is a lot of bread involved and if you are afraid of puffy, white, delicious clouds unfortunately this time you can’t replace them with anything else. Maybe with whole grain bread, but I don’t guarantee that the taste will be the same.

So, back to my dogs. Being inspired by my fun group members I gathered all the sauces that I love and tried to pair them with some toppings, to perfectly match a hot dog. And it worked like a wonder! We had Greek Dog, French Dog or Le Haute Dog, English Dog, Asian Dog and Hawaiian Dog. It was super fun to make and very tasty as well.





  • Super Soy Sauce

To make the bread

Add all the ingredients, minus the butter, in the bowl of you stand mixer. On low speed mix everything for 5 minutes. Speed up to medium and knead your dough for other 5 minutes, until it comes off the sides of the bowl. If at this point you notice that the dough it too dry add 1 tbsp of water.



When the dough is coming off the bowl add the butter cut in small cubes. Mix for another 4-5 minutes and knead a few times more on a flat surface. The dough has to be soft, but not sticky and very smooth. Lightly coat with oil a bowl and place the dough in it. Let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour.



To shape the "buns" remove the dough from the bowl and gently flatten it. Using a bench scraper or a sharp knife cut 8 equal pieces. Shape every pieces into a ball and with your finger flatten it. Roll the flattened dough, like you would do with a croissant, and tuck the edges under. Place the dough on the tray that you want to bake them and let them rise again in a warm place for 30 to 45 minutes.

You have to know you tray really well, because these buns puff and rise and you don't want them too stuck to eachother. Mine can hold 8 of these rolls. Now you want to preheat your oven at 190 C.


Lightly beat the egg with water in a bowl and gently brush every bun right before they go in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until the top is golden. The outside of the bun will be a bit crispy and the inside very, very soft and light. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before you cut. To make a hotdog add all the toppings that you like, lots of sauces and just have fun with your new invention!


I am Adriana and I love food, as you can probably see from what I cook. I like to bake and I like to experiment with new tastes, and my 2016 resolution is to try to cook healthy and special meals every day.
