Leftover hot dog and hamburger buns

What can I do with these? Besides turn them into bread crumbs.
I've used a couple for morning egg sandwiches, but I prefer english muffins rather than soft white buns. So what now? Should I just freeze them until we have burgers again? What about the hot dog buns?
Use them to thicken "cream" soups, stews, spaghetti sauce, tightens up any sauce where you don't want to make a roux.
Top casseroles, mac 'n cheese, creamed veggies.
Mix w/melted butter and top soups, veggies, etc.
I make turkey or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on them to pack in my daughter's lunchbox. She thinks it's a treat.
I freeze them until I serve hamburgers or hot dogs again; a few seconds in the microwave is all they need. Actually, even when I freeze them, they often get eaten up for lunch the next day with pimiento cheese spread inside. Like Junie, I pack school lunchboxes with peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches made with these buns.
