With the warmer weather approaching, it’s time to clean the grill! I can smell the aroma of hotdogs, hamburgers and barbecue filling the air as my hubby puts on a show that grill masters would envy. Speaking of hotdogs, these homemade hotdog buns are not only simple, but they’re gluten-free and soy free as well!
I don’t know of many people who enjoy a good old-fashioned hot dog as much as I do. There’s just something about the taste and flavor that makes me think summer, bonfires, camping, outdoor adventure, baseball games, and family reunions. It’s like they transport me back to my childhood almost immediately.
And luckily my family feels the same way. Because of the allergies in our household, we can’t indulge in regular hot dog buns found on grocery store shelves anymore. So I have to get creative. I’m always on the hunt to make food items healthier and soy free for my crew!
Although these buns lack in soy and gluten, they definitely do not lack in taste! My younger two boys are my official taste testers and they both give two thumbs up! If you’re looking for a simple recipe that can fit into your gluten-free, soy-free lifestyle, you’ll love these delicious hot dog buns.
Do I need to alter the amount of gluten-free flour I’m adding into these homemade hot dog buns?
Make certain that you’re reading the directions on the packaging. I use Bob Red Mill’s 1:1 Gluten Free Baking Flour or King Arthur. Both of these flour options make it incredibly simple and I literally don’t have to make any changes to what I’m adding. This not only keeps it consistent, but I love not having to change and figure out variations for recipes.
Can I use this gluten-free bread recipe for hamburger buns also?
Sure, why not?! This recipe is versatile. Instead of molding the bread into a hot dog bun shape, you can instead make it into buns. And if you want to do a combo of both, do so!
How can you use leftovers of this homemade bread?
If you happen to have a few buns left over, be creative in how you use them for leftovers! You can make garlic or cheesy bread sticks to go with some of your delicious home cooked air fryer orinstant pot meals, or just heat them up for a hearty snack for your kiddos.
The best thing about this bread is you know each and every ingredient that is added because you’re making it from scratch. That’s a pretty awesome way to know that you’re feeding your kids a food item that is 100% approved by you!
1) In a large bowl, combine the gluten-free all-purpose flour, salt, yeast, maple syrup, and the olive oil. Give it a good mix.
2) Add a third of the warm milk and an egg and mix with a spoon.
3) Keep adding more milk and an egg until all the mil and the eggs are gone and the dough is thick, sticky and pasty like a thick muffin batter.
4) Cover and let the dough rest for 1 hour.
5) Line a baking sheet with parchment or silicone liner.
6) Pour out ½ cup of the gluten-free flour on a shallow plate and grease a ¼ cup measure.
7) Take the dough from its resting place and remove the cover and punch the dough a little to get the air out
8) Now with the greased measuring cup, scoop out ¼ cup of the dough and place it on the plate of gluten-free flour. Lightly dust the dough and your hands with the flour and form it into a long rectangle “hot dog bun” shape. Place it on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
9) Place each hot dog bun about ½ an inch apart on the baking tray.
10) Brush the top of the bun with olive oil.
11) Bake at 350 F oven for 40 minutes.
12) Slice open the bin lengthwise.
13) Place a cooked hot dog and top with mustard and ketchup. Serve immediately.
14) Store the leftover buns in a Ziploc bag, in the fridge.
While this recipe makes delicious homemade hot dogs buns, my kiddos also like to eat them without hot dogs. They are delicious! The good thing about them is that they have such a great flavor that I don’t mind using the leftovers for other recipe needs.
