View Full Version : Why aren't hot dog buns cut evenly down the middle?

Is it too much to ask or what? If there is some point to a hot dog bun being thicker on one side than the other then, I'd really like to know.

Seems to me that the logical thing to do would be to cut the bun evenly down the middle but, not as deep. The extra thickness at the bottom would help prevent the bun from tearing in two when you stick your wiener in it.

Sincerely,
Gehanna

Anyway...

I totally understand your problems with the tainted hot dog bun. I've gotten one with a "half" so thin it was transparent!!

I say. We complain. To the top.

I wouldn't mind cutting my own bun if I had to but, I simply can't grasp the uneven cut.

Maybe it's the whole conspiracy thing and just something extra to drive us nuts.

We need a poll: To where should this thread be moved? The choices are "Now We're Cookin'" and "Erotica."

Now, speaking for the few of us still eating low carb, the uneven cut of the hot dog bun is a god thing.
(spelling Krystal's, bolding mine) Third option is one of the religion subforums.

We like out sandwiches with half of the bread anyway and if we can get a transluscent piece of hot dog bun to wrap around our meat, we have made out ...
Okay, and that looks like a vote for...

I just had a theory. Maybe the thicker side is the side you're supposed to put your stuff on. Stuff like mustard, relish, chili, and etc. Even IF this theory were to be accurate it would be inappropriate considering those of us who prefer to stick our stuff on both sides of the bun.

For those of you who are perverted, my preference for putting my stuff on both sides of the bun has nothing to do with my sexuality. :tongue

Personally, I like to rub sauce on both sides of the bun.

It's the crooked knives that the bun companies use. Cheap bastids.

You da man, BF!

On a side note, my buns do seem to be evenly split, though one has a ginormous pimple on it...

It's a complicated algorithm they use to determine the uneveness of the cut. They tell me it's too complicated for the ordinary hot dog bun eater to fathom and so we are just supposed to accept it that they know best for us and some things they do for our benefit we will never know about.... Oh wait a minute, we're not talking about the government. Sorry, wrong thread.

Some brands are cut down the middle, but they are hader to find. People use them for lobster rolls crab salad sandwiches.

Since we're on a bun rant why are there less buns then hot dogs? You get ten hot dogs but eight buns? I think it is a whole government bun conspiracy. Damn them!!!! Damn them all!!!!

In case you drop a hotdog? But then, what kind of insufferable fool drops a hotdog?

It's so you can give your dogs some of the hot dogs, or you can give them to whoever in the family won't touch bread this week. I know about the dogs, only heard about not eating bread.)

They ARE cut in the middle. Or where the middle would be if the bun was actually completely tubular shape. But it isn't, it has a flat side and then a rounded side and the cut is made exactly where the center of the bun would be if both sides were the same shape.

Am I being paranoid? Let's look at the facts:

I initiated this thread on 9/13.
This thread makes light of hot dog buns.
On 9/14 a nasty storm came up and my electricity went out.
My electricity did not come back on until this afternoon.
I have two packages of hot dog buns.
All my wieners are spoiled.
The forums are now evenly down the middle.LOL,
Gehanna

Plus, there's also the bigger question of what exactly the difference is between a hot dog, a weiner and a frankfurter.

Mustard, a little sauerkraut and a big old side of chili cheese fries.

Mustard. Always, mustard. Preferably the spicy brown stuff. If I liked hot dogs. Which I don't.
