What's a New England Hot Dog?

I know a lot about cakes and pastries but very little about bread. I am trying to change that and make more bread items for my family from scratch.

I was looking at my supplier's new products and one is a hot dog pan which is described as allowing you to "Make New England-style hot dogs with this non-stick hot dog bun pan".

Are these buns bigger (or smaller) than regular ones? I could Google it but it is more fun to ask my friends!

The buns load from the top.

Now, I'm going to show my age by asking; Do you remember "Wiener Wagons?" New England-style buns are almost like those, only with the rounded ends cut off.

They make adding relish and other condiments easier by not soaking and breaking a regular bun in half.

I think Hostess makes them.

The crust is on the top and the sides are white, which is great for toasting!

I was wondering if that was it. All our hotdog buns are like that, here in Quebec. I admit they have advantages, but they just plain look wrong.

Thanks, Selkie and Andy! And Taxlady, I agree with you they look funny, but I haven't seen any on the west coast. Maybe I will buy the pan and start a new trend!

These rolls are great toasted for lobster rolls! Also Grants lunch counter toasted them for hot dogs.

So, you're going to become a "Trend Setter!" Good Luck To You!

And you'll need to show us a photo of your pan when you get it.

MsM, If yours was the first answer to my question I would be asking...."so what is a Chicago Bun!" I love poppy seeds!

Hmm, this is really getting my curiosity up! The pan is $35 and shipping though so these would have to be pretty awesome hot dog buns!
