Dough that I've just mixed
Dough after 90 minutes
Weighing dough out -532 grams
Dividing the dough out and shaping into balls.

Letting the balls relax. (lulz what am I writing) For 10 minutes, so it'll be easier to work with.

Flatten into a oval, the length of a hot dog
Make cuts on the sides. I used a bench scraper.
Place the hot dog at the center
Cross dough over. If this step is too confusing, maybe watch Youtube video.
I made some puffy rolls too. By making a rope that was 2 1/2 the length of the hot dog, with a small bump in the center, and rolled the hot dog up in it.

Cover. Go preheat the oven at 400F.
Brush on egg+water. Bake at 400F for 8 minutes and 350 for 3-5 minutes
 If you'd like to, brush the hot buns with melted butter.
