Hotdog Sesame Bread
Hello there Mr. Buns Buns. Where have you been all my life? Oh just around? Nomnom. For this recipe I used my Hokkaido Bread Recipe as a base. Rolled them out to three into 9 balls, started with the first ball while the others were resting, and rolled it to 3 times the length of a hot dog. Then I wrapped them around the hot dogs. Covered it and let it get a little more poofy, about an hour. Brushed them with some egg wash and sprinkled sesame seeds over them. I baked them in the oven at 400F until they reached this goldeny color. To finish it off I brushed some melted butter for taste and the beautiful color. I'm in a.. process of making the video tutorial for these.. stay tuned. And I'll update this page once it's ready.
