I love making these soft fluffy hot dog rolls for picnics! There is no mess, all you should do is pick a roll and use your favorite topping like ketchup or mustard, in fact, these rolls taste so good with almost any dip. The rolls are so soft and light.

I didn’t use eggs when making these rolls and that makes its shelf life longer, however, since hot dogs are used, it’s better to store the rolls in the refrigerator. Something else to consider is the type of hot dog, some are very salty, in case you want to use salty hot dogs, add a little more sugar in the dough.

Soft Fluffy Hot Dog Rolls.

The soft fluffy hot dog rolls dough is very forgiving and easy to work with, almost perfection. You will not need to add more flour or even use a rolling pin, everything is done by hand and is so quick.

This dough can be made a day ahead and kept in the refrigerator. To make the hot dog rolls using a refrigerated dough, take the dough out of the refrigerator and place it on a kitchen counter covered for one hour.

Knead the dough for one minute and then use it. Let it rise again for 20 to 40 minutes after wrapping it over the hot dog.

Do not over bake, or your rolls will be dry. I hope that you enjoy these soft fluffy hot dog rolls as much as I and my family did!

      You are so right Natasha, I love home baked bread and rolls they always taste better than store bought.

  19. My family would love these. The rolls look so delicious and fluffy.

    • munatycooking

      I love hot dogs and that’s why I make these rolls often, I don’t blame your son 🙂

  21. I love making these. I’ve never actually made them from scratch like this though. I’m glad I can use this recipe now.

  22. I’ve had mini versions of these dogs, but not full-size! And not from scratch! i love it!

      These were out of this world, I had to be a good girl and tried not to consume the whole batch 😉

    Can I fry it instead?

    • munatycooking

      I never tried frying it although sounds interesting now that you have mentioned it. why don’t you try frying one and if it works do let me know so I can share your experience with my readers 🙂

  25. Hi I tried your recipe and it was easy enough but mine turned out pale from the oven. My husband said that’s because I didn’t egg wash the surface before sending them to the oven. Do we need to egg wash first? Don’t see it in your recipe. Also, possible for me to add more sugar to make the bread sweeter?

    • munatycooking

      Hi Dee, Thanks for your comment. Some ovens do not distribute heat evenly and some have fans, and it affects the color of the cake and other pastry. Some use the broiler after the baking is done to add the light brown color to the pastry. You can brush the rolls with milk or eggs. It is ok to add a little more sugar to the dough.

  26. Made them and loved them!! These are even better than the ones I used to eat as a kid! The dough was so easy to make and so tasty I ended up stuffing some leftover dough with crumbling feta and thyme cheese and we’re a huge hit too. Thank you for the recipe I’ll definitely be making these again!

    • munatycooking

      Thank you Halima for your feedback and kind words 🙂 I’m glad that you have enjoyed this recipe.

    Is this ready to use yeast or can you use the yeast that needs mixing with water first?
    Would you add the other bits to it straight away?

    • munatycooking

      Some types of yeast do not need to be proofed before mixing with flour. In this recipe, you can use any type of yeast you have but it’s best to read the instruction on the package to know how to use the yeast.

    Simple, quick, aesthetically pleasing and the hubby prefers them to hot dog buns.
