Homemade Hot Dog Rolls

Servings 10 rolls


  • ½ stick unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup of warm milk warm to the touch
  • 1 packet of active dry yeast or 2 ½ tsp if you have a jar
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups of flour + more if the dough is still wet after mixing
  • Poppy seeds
  • Egg wash 1 additional egg plus 1 or 2 tsp water
  • Parchment paper
  • Oil for the bowl


  • It's best to read the actual blog post and see all the step by step photos. In summary: There are 4 steps to making these rolls: 1. Mix ingredients to form a dough. 2. Let dough rise for 1.5 hours. 3. Shape dough into rolls and let rise again for 45 min. 4. Bake. That's not too bad, right? From start to finish this should take about 3 or so hours. Most of the time is waiting for the dough to rise. If you want to run to the store during the first rise, that's ok. You can extend it to 2 hours. No problem.
