The Delicious Way You Should Be Using Stale Hot Dog Rolls
What to do with the bags of old hot dog buns that have pretty much gone stale after you used up the meat for a good juicy hamburger or a fresh-off-the-grill frank? While it's probably for the best you don't keep using them to serve hot dogs in, you can include them as part of a delicious and easy breakfast.
According to Lifehacker, stale hot dog buns are perfect for making French toast sticks. The reason, Claire Lower explains, is that the stale buns are still spongey and stiff, so they won't break down into mush when they're soaking in custard.
To make hot dog bun French toast sticks, you must first combine 1 egg, ⅓ cup of half-and-half, a teaspoon of sugar, vanilla extract, and salt in a bowl to make a basic custard. Slice your hot dog buns into quarters or "sticks," dipping the quarters into the custard on all sides to ensure an even coating.
Place the sticks in a pan of either vegetable or canola oil and fried at medium heat on each side for 1-2 minutes till golden brown to be served with powdered sugar or maple syrup. You can also use leftover hot dog buns to make a "pizza boat", homemade garlic bread, or add to ground meat to make meatballs or meatloaf.
