Any place in LA that sells New England Hot Dog Buns? Does anyone have a recipe and technique for baking New England Hot Dog Buns at home?

      We use a nice wide slice of Sara Lee Potato Bread, lightly butter & grill it on one side, and fold it into a "bun".

        You mean split top buns right? King Hawaiians makes them and you can find them at Walmart for $2 for a 6 pack.

          Special ridged sheet pans are available for baking the buns. I believe Chef's catalog sells them and I imagine there are other sources online.

            Having the choice between the pans which I own and have used with the KA recipe and going and getting the King's Hawaiian, these days I would get the Kings Hawaiian.
