Hot Dog Buns



4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup warm milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
Sesame seeds (optional, for topping)

Step-by-Step Instructions:

1. Activating the Yeast:
In a bowl, combine warm milk and sugar. Sprinkle the active dry yeast over the mixture, allowing it to activate for 5-10 minutes until frothy.
2. Creating the Dough:

In a large bowl, combine the activated yeast mixture with melted butter, beaten egg, and salt. Gradually add the flour, stirring until a dough forms.

3. Kneading and Rising:
Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead for 8-10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-1.5 hours or until doubled in size.

4. Shaping the Buns:
Punch down the risen dough and divide it into 8 equal portions. Shape each portion into a hot dog bun shape and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

5. Second Rise:
Cover the shaped buns with a kitchen towel and let them rise for an additional 30-45 minutes.

6. Baking:
Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). If desired, brush the risen buns with melted butter and sprinkle sesame seeds. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

7. Cooling and Enjoying:
Allow the hot dog buns to cool on a wire rack. Once cooled, slice them open, add your favorite hot dog or sausage, and savor the homemade goodness.
