  • 2 teaspoons (1 packet / 7g) instant yeast (or active dry yeast)
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup milk (reduced fat or whole milk), heated to 120-130° F for instant yeast (or 110-120°F for active dry)

    Oh my goodness. This recipe is exactly the same as your Easy Dinner Rolls recipe, except it calls for oil instead of butter, and an egg wash. This is not a criticism, just surprised that so many people can’t figure it out. I’ve made your wonderful breads for years. I started making my own hot dog and hamburger buns a couple of years ago from the dinner rolls recipe. The first time making a recipe always teaches me how to make it the next time, eg, how many rolls I can make. I make 10 with this quantity and the size is perfect for hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches, or just plain eating. I don’t bother with the glaze. Still amazing!

  2. Kathy

    Tried these today. Next time I will make 16 rolls because they seem to be too big for hot dogs. Love your crusty rolls.

    • Diane

      Thank you! I have the dough already to go and was wondering if they could be made smaller. How did that work out for you?

      • Natalina

        I make 10 from this recipe , 5 for hamburgers, 5 for hot dogs. For me it’s the perfect size. Bake at same temp til golden brown on top. Mine take a few minutes longer, but that’s my oven. You have to watch them from the 12 min mark.

  3. Brooklyn

    Has anyone actually tried this using plain almond milk? What were your results?

  4. Dianna

    This recipe is a winner!! I made it with 50% freshly ground spelt and 50% organic unbleached. I used honey instead of sugar. This will be my go-to recipe! Jenny sure can cook. Jenny, thanks for sharing your recipes and love for good food. You are amazing!

    I was so excited to recieve 14 and a half pages of comments with my one and a half page recipes. It used all that paper and ink and I had no idea I was going to print a book. Sure will be smarter next time

  7. Deb M.

    Jenny, The hot dog buns are super (even with no hot dog [they are in the freezer somewhere]). I ended up with tiny submarine sandwiches 🙂

    • Deb M.

      Still can’t find the hotdogs! I ended up making tuna melts – delish!

  8. Sue

    I made these buns today for the first time. OMG! They are so soft and chewy but still tender. The texture and flavor remind me of egg bread I had growing up. The next time I make this recipe will be as a loaf! Just delicious!!

  9. Keith

    Again you rock Jenny!!!

    Thanks

We had a friend over and I went to get a piece of it and it was all gone. Guess I will be making another one. and one for the freezer . Love you girl stay healthy and safe and hope your bangs came out OK.

    Glad to see you again!
    I love your recipes and especially love your videos, you always make me smile and brighten my day.

  22. Barbara K.

    CONGRATULATIONS on your 100 Million Views! No surprise at all. I bet I have brought you a hundred new viewers since this quarantine started and I found your website. My question is what the heck took me so long to find you? Anyway, I did, yours is my absolute favorite website in the world. I was just coming online to find how to make bread that’s softer than your no-knead round loaves (YUMMY!!!) and voilà, here you are with nice soft hot dog rolls. Going to mix some up today. Thank you, Jenny, and God bless you and yours and keep you safe and healthy.

  23. Lynn

    Dear Jenny,
    I absolutely love all your recipes. I am of Polish heritage and am very fond of your Polish recipes.
    I always enjoyed you on your talk show.
    I am now enjoying your cooking show.
    P. S. I slap my dough too.
    Keep cooking, stay safe and healthy.

  24. 1-hour hot dog buns

    item #4 of directions say to add 1/4 c flour, but you never mention the rest of the flour. Did you mean 1/4 cup AT A TIME?… until all flour is used up?

    • Adele

      Step 1 in the instructions you mix flour, yeast, sugar, and salt.

    • Christine

      I agree the addition of the 1/4 cup of flour is confusing. The recipe ingredients show 2.5 cups flour which you are to put in the bowl with yeast and other ingredients. Then you are to mix in the liquids. If you are to add an additional 1/4 cup of flour, the ingredient list should have said 2.5 cups of flour and 1/4 cup of flour.

      • Christine Hall

        Never mind, I see that it’s added at the bottom of the ingredient list.

  25. Denise Guidotti

    Thank you. My son buy hot dog buns at the grocery store and they go bad in no time. I will attempt to make them tomorrow. I also make your no knead bread. I love your recipes.

    • Emma416

      I keep my breads and buns in the fridge. Toast before using. Can be kept in freezer too. Double bag in Ziploc to prevent freezer burn. [NB I like to date my freezer items, too. My late MiLaw used to make an Excel spreadsheet with her freezer items (#, dates, etc).]

  26. Laura Jean

    Thank you for posting this Jenny. I know what I’ll be making tomorrow. *smile*. I”m sure your bangs look great, unless you’re like me, in which case they’re about 1 inch long by the time you got them straight! Be well, stay safe. HUGGGGGGGs

  27. Elaine Fallah

    Can these be made New England style. I guess the rest of the country calls them lobster rolls. We like to toast our hot dog rolls or strep them

  28. Edith

    1 hour hot dog buns, fantastic. I will never buy hot dog buns again. They turned out
    just like you said. I also filled some with tuna salad. Sliced the bun into
    5 pieces. Thank you for another fantastic recipe.

  29. Yvonne

    I was so excited to see your email. I have made lots of your recipes, always to lots of complements. I tell everyone about your YT.

    You’re back! Jenny, I was thinking of you recently, wondering when we would hear from you. I love your YouTube channel. I only discovered it last year. I’ve watched every video at least twice. You always make me laugh, and I never fail to learn something. You are too pretty and funny not to be sharing this recipe by video!😍 These look YUMMY! xo

  33. Pat

    Thank you for the email. Glad you are back. Always enjoy your videos. Your recipes are simple and easy. I especially like the bread recipes.

  35. Maria

    Hi Jenny, I can tell you how happy I am to see this recipe for hot dog buns. The ones packaged from the grocery store just don’t do the trick. I can’t
    wait to make these. I have tried a few of your recipes, and have been very pleased. Thanks.

  36. Wallie

    Hi Jenny,

    So nice to hear from you. I baked your bread today since the weather was not to hot. Could I use the hot dog recipe to make hamburger buns? Just formed differently. Thank you so much for your response.
    Wallie

    • Jenny Can Cook

      I put a link for my hamburger buns at the bottom of the recipe.

      • Wallie

        Thank you so much Jenny for responding regarding the hamburger buns.
        one hundred million followers. you deserve every single one because your recipes are fantastic, delicious and easy. Today I will make your apple cake and I am sure it will be fantastic too. Thanks again, stay safe Wallie

  37. Pat

    I am beyond grateful to have found you Jenny and your recipes. In a week since I discovered you I have made fast no knead bread 4 times, hamburger buns, cinnamon raisin swirl bread and lemon squares. All recipes are great easy to make and tasty. Thank you so much. I will now have to try your hot dog buns and many other of your delicious recipes. Oh funny story when I made the hamburger buns for some reason because I can’t count lol I cut in 6. Wow those were some big buns. Cooked them longer and they were perfect.

  38. Hooked

    What an exciting day, e-mail from Jenny. Since finding you I’ve lured all my family to check out JCC and now a recipe for my hot dog eating hubby. Thank you

  39. Beth

    Hi Jenny, You always light up my life, when we hear from you with a recipe. And to know you are well and able to cut your bangs. Ha! Be well!. Thank you.

  41. Bunny Bard

    Hi there ! SO THRILLED to have found you. Huge congratulations on your views – so we’ll deserved ! Quick question : will oat milk work instead of milk ? (Kosher so i need non dairy )
    Thanks !

  42. GardenGal

    So happy to hear from you! Always enjoyed what you published. I’ll have to put it on ‘hold’ ’cause right now our stores never seem to have any flour (I guess a lot of anxiety baking going on. :/ )

  43. Ria

    So glad to see you back!! I really enjoy your recipes! My mom loved your show and she loved your cooking. I always told her she should have made a page like this with her recipes :).
    Thanks for always making us smile and giving us awesome recipes.
    Almost out of yeast. I will be sad when it is gone. I have not been able to find any.
    Thinking of making a sourdough starter!

    • bon

      Hi Ria: I was unable to locate any packets of yeast at the market so went to Amazon and tracked down SAF-INSTANT yeast in a ONE POUND package!! I read it will keep indefinitely in the freezer, which I will do. My husband was raring to go on making bread so we did Jenny’s “no knead” bread and it turned out a perfect, round loaf that we have already consumed. We are looking forward to more yeast-dough wonders and wish you luck with yours!

  44. Jody from Olympia WA

    So excited to get your recipe in my email box! The other day I ran out of something and couldn’t remember what it was, but after reading through this recipe I remembered . . . I need to get parchment paper LOL

    I’m in the process up downsizing and moving to a small senior apartment and am looking forward to get my new little kitchen fired up, cooking and baking your recipes❤

    BTW, after your comment to my comment on the picture page about your granola, I now also enjoy it as a cereal with milk! Soooooo good, your granola recipe!

  45. Marla

    Thank you Jenny for this recipe!
    I have doing lots of baking since I found your site I just love your bread recipes.this is the first Time making bread I just loved it. you make it so easy

  46. LOREEN FAVIA

  47. Tim

    Okay, so just made these hot-dog buns. FANTASTIC! They’re are NOTHING like store bought, and are as fluffy as a cloud. Thanks Jenny! Love all your bread recipes too!

  48. Debbie

    Hi Jenny…thank you for this recipe, I will definitely be trying this one. I just wanted you to know that I make your easy no knead bread every other day now. My husband and I love it and I love the fact it is so quick and easy. I am vegetarian so any vegetarian dishes are totally welcome. Thanks Jenny!

  49. Maggie

    These look delicious, I can’t wait to try them. I just want to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed your YouTube channel and the recipes that I’ve already tried. So happy to see you’re still at it. Be safe and well. ❤️

  50. Patty

    Hey Jenny
    Congrats on the huge viewing audience! You deserve it… your recipes are easy and they taste great. And your videos are even better!
    Thanks for this recipe, I’ll definitely give it a try, might only make 6 but will cut them into larger rectangles so I’ll have longer buns to cover the longer style dogs.
    …. who knew you were able to ✂️ your own bangs… you should’ve included a photo so we could check them out. 😄
    Happy summer, stay healthy!

  51. Gaile Beard-Green

    Love how you cook..I use to watch you when you were on TV…You are an amazing cook..

  52. Bruce

    Jenny, I’ve been making these for a few weeks now. I take and make the recipe half sandwich buns and half hot dog buns. Only thing is the sandwich buns need 15 minutes so the hot dog buns get dried out at 15 minutes. You can use either the white bread or the whole wheat bread recipe.

  53. Lisa

    Hi Jenny,
    This is wonderful and your recipes are marvelous. We Canadian love Hot Dogs. Thank you and take care.

    Ciao Bella Lisa

  54. Patricia

    who’da thunk hot dog buns would be so easy? Thank you, Jenny; you are always an inspiration!

  55. Terry

    Could these be converted to hamburger buns?

  56. Hilda

    can these be frozen?

  57. Helen

    Sooooooooooooo Happy,

    Getting recipe emails from you is a real joy.

    Thank you

  58. Joy

    Thank you Jenny -gonna try these buns and if we like them I will make several batches for 4th of July. Hope you are doing well & have a great summer 🙂

  59. Debbie in California

  62. Susan

    Jenny, it is a happy day when I get an email from you. So excited to try this!! Love all your recipes, I watch them often.

    Susan 🥂

  63. Ro

    Can the 1-hour hotdog buns be made without an egg and with non-dairy milk? Thanks

    • Cristina

      Hey Ro. I’m not Jenny but wanted to reply anyway. I would try using canned Coconut milk (not the one in the carton). Eliminate the egg all together.

    • m00se

      Hi Ro,

      You can google the tangzhong method for making soft long lasting bread. It doesn’t use egg but it does use milk and butter. The key to the “white bread” consistency in any of these breads is the inclusion of fat. That’s what keeps the bubbles tiny like your commercial sandwich breads. I hope this helps.

    • Stu B.

      Obviously vegan….when we invite a group to our home for a buffet dinner or brunch and some guests inform me that they are vegan or vegetarian and hope there will be something for them, I suggest they contribute a buffet item they can enjoy and in a quantity enought for the number of guests we have invited so everyone can enjoy their vegetarian/vegan offerings. I suggest the same for gluten free and lactose free and nut free guests. There will always be a generous fruit platter and vegetable platter, and, since my adult son and I are both Celiac patient’s there will be GF items and non-gluten free pastries and breads as well. Entertaining has become more complicated in the past 10 years. It makes me become more creative and that’s fun!
