The quest for a yummy, nutritious, cruelty free hot dog bun has been a frustrating and at times seemingly impossible task. I did find one brand at Walmart that was full of garbage but it was vegan so I let Andrew have it for an occasional treat, but they no longer carry it. I bought some at WholeFoods for a ridiculous price that were absolutely disgusting. I wouldn’t even feed them to my dogs (I let the chickens have them). Then I decided to try and make my own, I have seen my mom make rolls, I figured same principles apply so I whipped up a batch of sour dough and got this
Oso liked them
Andrew did too, they tasted fine, but they were not a good hot dog bun. The quest was put on hold last week when I went to DC and NYC on business. I had to work from my hotel room, but the view was incredible
I did take a break or two
I have a friend back east that also went plant based in Feb, she is a nurse and planted one of the seeds that grew into my own conversion and she introduced me to two new loves. One has Andrew’s stamp of approval, the other I ate before he had a chance to taste, let alone stamp.
Sticky Fingers cookies. The owner/creator won cupcake wars two years in a row and she has a cookbook, which is on its way to my house.
Ozery Morning rounds Andrew approved.
$3.99 for 6 rounds. These are so soft and chewy and filling and delicious and Andrew approved. My friend bought me two bags to take home, I accidentally ate them all before I even made it to NYC, so I went on a hunt to NYC Whole Foods—they weren’t there, thankfully I found them in Utah. As I cleared the shelves, I noticed they also make—you guessed it—a hot dog bun. Delicious. Andrew approved.
