Leftover buns

I have about 30-40 leftover hamburger and hotdog buns leftover from BBQs over the weekend. Any use for them? Just make them into breadcrumbs and freeze them?

I'd freeze some whole for later use and make some into crumbs.

I freeze burger and hot dog buns all the time. I defrost them in the microwave wrapped in a damp paper towel. Takes about 20-30 seconds and they are soft and ready to go.

Spread them with garlic butter top with cheese and give them a quick broil or bake, for garlic cheese bread.

If I make breadcrumbs, should I roast them? Or dehydrate them?

I would bake them at a low temperature to dry them out. Roasting would brown them too much; they might burn if you used them in a breading later.

I freeze mine as is or fill them with garlic butter and cheese and freeze wrapped in foil and then plastic wrap. When we go to a bbq I grab a pack and remove plastic and stick them on the grill for a quick side dish.

Depending on quality, if they are good, they will less in the freezer for good 3-4 month, practically not losing flavors and taste. But they also make good breadcrumbs, light and airy. Just don't over dry them.
