They were so soft and fresh.

She does what everyone else was saying above... shape them about like a hot dog, only a little fatter, let them rise, then they're touching each other when they come out of the oven and have to be pulled apart.

Good luck on trying hot dog buns, PC. I'm impressed with people who make yeast breads. I don't have a very good track record with it... yet.
Keep trying, Kay. The smell of baking yeast bread is the best smell in the world. After reading about your grandma's buns, I'm definitely going to try making hot dog buns!

Well, I wondered too. I thought maybe they just used some different kind of recipe or technique but they didnt' look like hot dog buns to me. They have what I would call a traditional hot dog pan on their site but it says it's unavailable.

You mean that shollow little divet in the pan won't hold the dough in any shape??? I've never owned one, but my curiosity got the best of me when I saw this thread. Hot dog buns ore on my 'to-do' list, I'd never considered that they might need a pan of any type. I was just gonna roll the dough roughly into shape, toss it in the oen and make corrections next time. I just HAD to see a hot dog pan.

Whenever I saw the words, hot dog pan, I just assumed it would look like a muffin or cupcake pan, deep pockets to help mold the bread into shape as it rises.
What a ripoff that thing is. Better suited for keeping your fish sticks from touching.....

Go ahead and take a look at it.
If for any reason, curiosity's sake.
But there's no reason to have your credit card handy.

I truly feel that this item would only end up taking space and I wouldn't buy it even with someone else's money.
