Whether you’re enjoying an evening around the fire roasting some hot dogs, or breaking out the grill to barbecue some hamburgers, these easy homemade Gluten Free Hot Dog or Hamburger Buns will be a welcome addition.
Any time it’s not -30 degrees C, my family and I enjoy making the most of the weather. That often involves eating every meal outside, going for walks, and grilling as much as possible.
Before being diagnosed with celiac disease, I had never baked my own hot dog or hamburger buns. Why bother? The store carries them, and they are often on sale for $1.99/dozen.
After being diagnosed, I often just went “bun-less”, like I know many of you do. Then the stores started to carry gluten free buns that are actually pretty good, but they tend to be quite expensive. Although it was nice to be able to eat my hot dog or burger on a bun again, sometimes just the cost, or the inconvenience, prohibited me from having them.
Now that I know how easy it is to make my own hot dog buns, for just a fraction of the cost, I don’t think I’ll ever bother buying them again.
These buns are nice and soft, yet they hold up well, even when loaded with toppings. The oat flour used in them gives them a great texture, and helps them to remain soft, even after sitting on the counter for a day. Like all gluten-free baking though, these are best the day they are baked.
Since it only takes an hour to make these, including rise and bake time, it’s not a full day commitment to have fresh baked buns to go with your hot dog or hamburger. I need to experiment with freezing this dough before rising – that would give you fresh baked buns (or bun) at any time. I’ll report back once I’ve had a chance to try that.
