For hot dog or hamburger buns Brioche dough from The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day or some other enriched white dough that make up a lighter bun. Use any dough that you like and form as below.
Take a small (3-ounce) piece (about the size of a small plum) from your bucket of dough. Form them into smooth balls, as you would a larger boule.
Elongate them into 6-inch long ropes.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Paint the top of the buns with water or butter with a Pastry Brush.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden. They will not develop a crust.
Slice when cooled, fill with the hot dog of your choice and go crazy with the toppings. (I took the picture prior to dumping a bunch of relish and other goodies on top.)
