Ingredients for 5 servings:

…for the Hot Dog Buns:

  • 250 grams of flour
  • 140 milliliters of lukewarm water
  • ¼ cube of yeast
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • More flour to dust the worktop

…more ingredients for the Hot Dogs:

  • 5 sausages
  • Ketchup & mustard to taste
  • Fried onions
  • ½ glass of Danish or Norwegian cucumber salad

Kitchen Helper/Gadgets:

  • High vessel for stirring the yeast-water mixture
  • Whisk or fork
  • Mixing bowl
  • Food processor or mixer with dough hook
  • Kitchen towel
  • Baking tray + parchment paper
  • Rolling pin
  • Microwave or Pot to heat up the sausages
  • Knife


…for the bun dough:

Crumble ¼ cube of yeast into a large vessel, add 1 tablespoon of sugar & also pour in 140 milliliters of lukewarm water. Stir with a whisk or a fork until the yeast and sugar have dissolved completely.

Give 250 grams of flour into a mixing bowl, pour in the yeast-water mixture, also add 2 – 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil and ½ teaspoon of salt. Knead using a mixer with dough hook or a food processor to a smooth, but slightly sticky dough. Then form a ball, give it back to the mixing bowl and let rest/stand covered with a kitchen towel for about 30 – 45 minute in a warm place (possibly in the oven at 30°C).

…for the hot dog buns:

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Lightly flour the work surface and knead the dough thoroughly for about 1 – 2 minutes. Then get a knife and cut into approximately 5 equal sized pieces. Form each piece of dough into a small ball shape.

Roll out the balls in succession using a rolling pin until flat & elongated. Roll up the elongated side with your hands until you got 1 – 2 centimeter wide bars. Place them onto the prepared baking sheet, cover with a kitchen towel and let rest/stand for another 30 minutes in a warm place.

In time preheated the oven at 200°C (top/bottom heat) and bake the buns for about 10 – 12 minutes until slightly brown.

…for the hot dogs:

Warm up the sausages in time either in the microwave or a pan/pot.

Get a slightly cooled bun and slice it up using a long knife but not completely cut through. Then spread both sides with some mustard, also top the bun with a few slices of Danish or Norwegian cucumber salad. Place a hot sausage in the middle of the bun and garnish with ketchup and fried onions to taste.

Bon Appetite!
