Question Hot dog buns?

This was mentioned in the different thread:

Speaking of which, has anybody ever seen them for sale. I know in Europe they are used a lot, even the street wendors sell the hot dogs that way. But I haven't seen one here in the States. Not that I was looking for one, but just wondering. Anybody?

One of my absolute favorite ways to eat a hot dog is in freshly baked bread. Just take your favorite bread recipe, make the dough, and for the second rise, wrap some dough completely around the hot dog, let rise, then bake it. This is how I make Pigs-In-A-Blanket. Of course, you can use this technique to encase all kinds of food in bread. I've done the same thing with kielbassa, link breakfast sausage, even a mixture of gorund beef, carrot, potato, and onion. Serve with kethcup and mustard. Yum.

Oh, and if you go back into the mid-70's, there was this gizmo that was sold to quickly heat hot dogs. In consisted of a plastic box, with two rows of four prongs, one row on each side. These were angles slightly upward toward the center, and spaced so that a normal sized hot dog owuld be skewered an inch deep on either end by the prongs. The unit was then plugged in and the hot dog became part of the conduction path for the electical current that ran between the prongs. This current heated the hot dogs in short order, if I remember correctly, about 20 seconds. Of course there was a lid that had to be closed before the device would operate, to keep you from electrocuting yourself.

Think of it, a bun-warming prong thingy, and a hot dog cooking prong thingy. You could start a franchise.

Goodweed am a recovering gizmo-aholic but never saw that one. Sounds like a gas.

Nor Charlie, the bread to bun thingy. That might actually be worth a shot.

No, no, no, no more gizmos.

No, the thing Bilby is talking about, is really for bread only. Hot dogs are cooked separately, whatever way you usually do. Roughly speaking it is like a small motor and the sort of, not really, the drill bit is sticking out and it drills a hole in the hot dog bun, then you take you hot dog and stick it in to the hole and then just eat it. I bet it wouldn’t work in America, where are you going to put all the junk that Americans use on their hot dogs.

This is the commercial version of what I'm talking about:
Hot Dog Machines

And this is one of the home versions:
Kambrook KHD10 - Hot Dog Factory

Is that what you are talking about also Charlie?

This looks painful if you aren't paying attn and put your hand on it instead of the bun. Especially if it's turned on and hot. LoL

Why do I have a craving for a hot dog right now? hmmmm
