Hot Dog Bun Garlic Bread

garlic bread made with leftover hot dog buns

Whenever we have hot dogs or hamburgers, it seems there are always leftover buns that eventually end up in the trash.  I really don't like wasting food, so I've come up with a way to use them up.  It's easier for us to use up a pack of hamburger buns than hot dog buns, because I usually plan at least 2 meals that will use them a couple days apart.  For example, on Monday we'll have turkey burgers and on Wednesday or Thursday, we'll have BBQ chicken sandwiches.  However, with hot dogs, it's a little more difficult to come up with 2 meals (other than hot dogs) that use them.  I did find another way to use them besides what I'm sharing here today that I'll tell you about another time.  Anyway, leftover hot dog (and hamburger) buns work well for garlic bread!

Hot dog buns, split
Garlic powder
Italian seasoning
Parmesan cheese

Spread desired amount of butter on each bun (cut side up).  Sprinkle with garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and Parmesan.  Broil until they are golden brown and crispy on top!

Of course, if you don't have any extra buns on hand, you can always use our more traditional garlic bread recipe!

I apologize for my lack of "real" recipes lately.  Life has gotten busy and there are other things that have taken priority over trying/altering/developing new recipes.  Hopefully you'll still find these simple tips and recipes helpful!
