Do hamburger buns make a difference

    I grabbed some dinner rolls today. I am going to make the family some sliders in the next couple of days. I already had the stuff to do Flint style coney dogs yesterday. Those are dinner tomorrow. I am also making the "red sauce" for the regular hot dogs (my first job was working for the Moore family and I still remember the recipe)...

    Of course it matters. I'm a burger lover and I tell you, the bread is about 50% of what burgers are all about.

    Without good buns, you're just eating greasy meat and salad with seasonings accompanied by... bad bread.

    I grill about four hamburgers a year and use the Deli fresh buns, and they're fine.  I don't eat hot dogs, (which I wish I did)  but I agree with grilling the buns...makes them better.
    If you don't eat HD's because of the  whole cured meat thing, try some uncured Turkey dogs, they're not bad. I love a good HD in the natural casing but every time I ate one, or two :),  I would get the old belly burn after about a half hour.
    Bread makes the difference, too. The grocery store white bread should not even be called food!! But try and find a good bakery anymore!!

    Forget the buns.  I like my burgers on toasted rye with mustard,  grilled onions and Swiss cheese.

    Onion rolls from the grocery store baker are pretty good for burgers too.

    I used those to make Arby's Beef and Cheddars: Onion roll, cheap roast beef, cheese sauce, and Catalina salad dressing.

    Actually that would be that cheap white (or brown for that matter) crap that gets labeled as bread.  The cheap buns are made of the same dough too...

    My favorite burger included a toasted (not burnt) bun, a medium rare Patty, hot pepper cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and A-1 sauce

    Rye makes damn good whiskey. Rye bread? You can't make a Reuben without one. Or a decent patty melt.

    Or a good ham and cheese.  The patty melt would be what I described above...

    I got one of these as a gag gift many years ago.  If I had to guess I would say it has toasted close to 1000 hotdogs and buns.  Nothing beats the snap of a Koegel.

    Never knew something like that existed

    How fortuitous that these (bacon is ground into the patties) are on sale down the street and it should be warm enough to grille on SUnday.............

    I ended out doing the stuff for the old school hotdogs with the red sauce, Flint style coney sauce, and Chicago style hotdogs. Obviously using Koegel Viennas.

    Sliders come from White Castle. Period. You may make a tiny tasty burger, but it aint a slider. 

    White Castle microwaveable Sliders. Best thing for sea sickness ever invented. 4 parts grease, 3 parts fat, 9 parts slime. Nuke it, hit it with mustard, and down the hatch!

    Oh. I missed this.
    Sliders? What are you, a soccer mom? One other benefit of ditching facebook was not having to see stupid slider recipes.  Pulled pork sliders. Chicken sliders. Roast beef sliders. Turkey sliders. No. Just NO! Putting meat on a dinner roll does not a slider make!

    I don't do full on White Castle, I do the Detroit "slider" thing-- basically put some onions on the griddle, smash down a small patty on top of the onions, turn, set buns on top, and cover for a bit until it finishes cooking. Those burgers go back to the 1930's so they ain't no soccer mom crap. "Everything" means they put mustard, ketchup and pickle on it.

    Funny story about corned beef.  My wife made it and my picky eating middle son was around 10 at the time.  He took one look at it and said "I ain't eating that stuff"!!!  Well hunger got the best of him and he carved off a small piece and ate it.  He proceeded to test a second piece!  Then it was game on!  He devoured that corned beef and it's now his favorite meal when someone will make it for him.

    Corned beef sandwiches...game on!

    I just cooked and ate those sliders. Man they were good! No pictures... just an empty plate now.
