Homemade hot dog buns

I made home made hot dog buns for the first time ever, and they turned out great, except they were a little heavy. Should I use less flour, or split them up into more buns and let them rise longer? Any input would be appreciated! Thanks!!

Each bun should weigh ~1.5 ounces each, before baking.

They look great!

Thanks! They were really soft and chewy, and would make great dinner rolls lol. I split the dough into 12 pieces, flattened them into 4"x6" rectangles and rolled them the long way to help them keep their shape, and let them rise until they were about double in size. I saw another recipe that was almost exactly the same that used 1/2 cup less flour, but I also saw a comment on the recipe that suggested splitting it up into 16 pieces instead of 12, and I was hoping to get some input on which one would be better for getting light fluffy buns.

Next time try the less flour recipe, you may get big air bubbles (holes) if you let them rise much more. Shrek told me they used the 1.5 ounce size when they made hotdog or hamburger buns. Instead of rolling them into rectangles and rolling them up, try just rounding each piece of dough and shaping into a bun. They may have been rolled too tight!

You did an excellent job shaping them, they look great!

I have been meaning to try this recipe, it has lots of great reviews, of course you could shape them as hotdog buns instead of hamburger.

If they are too heavy, use them for hoagie/subs. They are just beautiful!

Those look really nice! I didn't know about the 1.5 ounce "rule." Another reason to use my scale.

I have made dinner rolls many times, and they are always "heavy", as in contains a lot of moisture, comparing to the ones you get from walmart lol. I don't know how they made it so dry, but I guess they needed to make it dry in order to preserve it longer.
