These hot dog buns only take one hour to make and have a great homemade taste. They use normal bread ingredients which means that when you are short on time, you can make them quickly!
We made these hot dog buns on Memorial Day. We decided to do some grilling for lunch which came really fast after breakfast. I had hardly been able to work in the yard before it was time to start lunch so I whipped up these 1-hour hot dog buns as fast as possible and they were done with plenty of time before the hot dogs were actually ready.
Growing up, I think a lot of pressure was put on holidays being perfect. Fortunately I haven’t carried on that tradition so our holidays are always laid back. In fact, for Memorial Day, we never saw any friends or family (other than randomly running into some friends at the grocery store) because we were working on the house, running errands, and then decided to go get sushi for dinner. It was nice to see other families at the sushi restaurant that evening, not putting pressure on the holiday for the perfect barbecuing experience for dinner.
After our sushi dinner, we headed to a local park and played for a couple of hours. There weren’t many people there so we basically had the park to ourselves. The kids played on the playground, I had a handstand competition with my daughter, and the family played a little 2-on-2 soccer. Because I totally believe bribing works, after the soccer game, we went to a local store for some ice cream cones.
The day was perfect. We may have not planned to see family or friends which is apparently a huge part of Memorial Day, but we loved our day. We spent time together as a family, fixed the sprinklers in our yard, watched a bunch of YouTube videos about strange phenomenons, and had a lovely evening.
