I remember being shocked that you could use hot dog buns for 
things other than hot dogs! My aunt, who doesn't cook, once served 
hot dog buns topped with bacon or ham and topped with american 
cheese and then toasted it. It was good, but I remember I kept 
thinking "This is dinner? And we aren't going to get in trouble 
for eating junk?" ~lol~
