Leftover Buns

I never know what to do with leftover hot dog buns. With two little boys in the house we ALWAYS end up with extra buns as one may or may not even eat a hot dog and the other like his straight into the ketchup. So I always end up throwing out 4 hot dog buns or so and it makes me mad! I paid money for those!

Well I had an epiphany the other night… hot dog buns just look like mini bread loaves… pre-cut mini bread loaves. So what did I do? I opened those babies up, slathered on butter, added some garlic salt, parsley and parmesan cheese and broiled them in the oven for 5 minutes. Mmm! Perfecto! They were the perfect addition to our lasagna! My husband raved about my creativity and use of otherwise trash-bound food items, not to mention he ate almost all of them. The two year old even ate his. Now that is success!


  1. Great idea – glad I’m not the only one who ends up with leftover hot dog buns!
