    Leftover buns make great garlic bread. Spread some butter, sprinkle some garlic salt, and bake. Easy!!

  2. Dawn says

    I make garlic bread out of them.
    If I have hotdog buns, but am making hampurgers, I just shape the burgers long and narrow to fit the buns.

  3. Leslie says

    I would love to win these buns! I am a bread fanatic! I have lots
    of recipes I could use these buns for! Please!

  4. Suzanne High says

    I use leftover older breads as breadcrumbs for meatloaf, stuffing, garlic bread, and for croutons!

  5. Erin from Long Island says

    I use leftover buns for hot sandwiches
    first, i scoop out as much of the insides i can without tearing them.
    then, i fill with anything from cheese to veggies to leftovers to PB&J.
    then i close them up and heat them in a lightly greased pan til warm/melted

    My mom and dad had eight kids to feed. Most of the time it was biscuits or cornbread. However, at least once a week we had “Store bought light bread”. Since we lived on a farm we always had an old milk cow. Therefore we almost always had “Bread and Milk. Toast the bread in the oven (no toasters back then) cut it into squares of about one-inch, sprinkle a little surar on it in a bowl and pour on the milk……..Wow, homemade cereal!!! By the was, for you young’uns that was before and during WWII.

  7. Wilma Prochaska says

    leftover buns usage ….

    grilled cheese- turn the buns inside out !
    we also do the roll the hamburger into logs for using leftover hotdog buns and ALWAYS good for garlic bread or “french bread” pizzas …

    we have leftover hotdog buns a lot bc my 3 year old dd augusta doesn’t eat buns just the hotdogs cut up lol .

  10. MichelleH says

    My husband loves PB&J in hot dog buns. I like a banana (fits perfectly) with a bit of yogurt and a drizzle of caramel syrup for a breakfast banana split. Leftover hamburger buns make great sunrise sammies – scrambled eggs, cheese, ham or turkey.

    We are newly addicted to bread cubes dipped in Hidden Valley Ranch dressing. Buns are quite easy to cut into cubes and enjoy this way. Much easier than trying to carve out bread cubes froma round bread bowl.
