Hot Dog Bread with Dipping Sauces

Hot Dog Bread is brought to you by Red Star Yeast, and I am happy to give you my honest opinion about it.

This is fun food. It bakes like an easy casserole, but eats like a hot dog. The flavorful yeast bread dough is slightly sweet and chewy, and bakes up and around the hot dogs. You get the delicious taste of homemade hot dog buns without as much fuss.

I knew the kids at our get-together would love it, but the grownups did, too. There weren't any leftovers.

For a yeast bread, it doesn't take long to do. Mix up the batter, let it rise once for about 30 minutes, then stir down. Smooth into a greased 13 X 9 pan and top with hot dogs:

Ready for the second rise

Let it rise a second time, then bake for about half an hour and enjoy. Get the full recipe and instructions at Red Star Yeast here.

Pass small bowls of your favorite dipping sauces and let the fun begin!



Here are a couple of sauces I made to go with our Hot Dog Bread:

1. Honey Mustard
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice

In a small bowl, whisk all ingredients together. Refrigerate leftovers, tightly covered.


2. Sweet-n-Spicy Honey Apricot
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 and 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons apricot preserves
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon chili sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
generous pinch adobo chile pepper or ground red pepper

In a small sauce pan, whisk cornstarch into chicken both until combined. Over medium-low heat, stir in the rest of the ingredients and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Refrigerate leftovers, tightly covered.

Fun for the 4th of July

  13. Joy,

    My weakness is homemade bread. This reminds me of a pigs n the blanket but with a whole lot more bread, which is the best part. Great idea!
    Thanks for sharing!

  14. This idea is so unique! My biggest pet peeve when eating a hot dog is either the bun from falls apart or the hot dog wont stay put. This solves both problems and I am sure the homemade bread is 100 times better than a dry old hot dog bun. Love, love, love this creative idea!

  23. Whoa...these look amazing.
    I belong to a home fellowship group and we meet at different houses every Sunday evening, and everyone brings something to go along with the hosts menu for that night. Of COURSE we all try to outdo the others so when I bring THESE, with a little flour across my nose and my black and white cutie apron on, (and tell them this is MY recipe) they are going to love me forever....
    OK...OK...I WON'T say it's MY recipe....honest...:)
    Over from Green Willow.....come see me. :)

  45. How about this: Bake this as bread loaf in the bread machine.
    Slice or dice wieners up and add to flour mixture.
    My Mom was known in her church for her yeast sausage bread, she cooked fresh ground sausage meat, drain grease off. Form loaf, and
    Brush loaf with drippings. It was very tasty. Thank you for your recipe.
