Yes, again a “or almost” because I still haven’t launched myself into making vegetarian sausage and mustard ;)
But the sweet buns are homemade! Without butter but with olive oil, I often make those small smooth buns really easy and quick to make for cocktail hour. This time, I even reduce the resting time to have it done in less than 1 hour! And there is also a small change by using some whole-wheat flour.
And well, ketchup, as you suspect it, is also homemade :).
For the hot-dog buns
- 100g whole-wheat flour
- 90g classical flour
- 4g salt
- 30g sugar
- 10g yeast
- 130g milk (skimmed this time)
- 35g olive oil
For the glazing
- A bit of milk
- A bit of sugar
- Sesame seeds
About food inside
- Vegetarian sausages (for Swedes or pseudo-Swedes, I use the soya frozen ones, which are available in the organic department, very tasty!)
- Ketchup & mustard please!
So for the brioche, we follow the same steps as here:
- First, preheat your oven to 60°C.
- In your blender, pour flour, salt and sugar roughly mixed.
- Into a container, stir the yeast in the slightly warm milk. Pour this mixture on the dry one in your blender. Quickly mix to incorporate everything.
- Add olive oil and mix again the dough that is going to be very sticky!
- Then, use two tablespoons to make some sausage shapes of dough, on a baking tray, covered by some parchment paper.
- Let it risen into your warm oven (not too warm right, we don’t want the dough to be cooked!) for about 30 minutes.
When the sweet buns are risen, remove them from the oven and turn it on to 180°C.
Mix a lot of sugar with a bit of milk (very precise, I know), spread each bun with this mixture and sprinkle with some sesame seeds.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes into your warm oven. Be careful, watch out the cooking which could be very different from an oven to another!
Let cool down on a wire rack.
Cut buns in half, add vegetarian sausages (I would say: 1minute, still frozen, into the microwave oven) and ketchup & mustard as much as you want and it’s ready!
TIPS AND TRICKS
To make the brioche rises: if you got an old oven which doesn’t heat under 150°C, as I do (boo hoo!), no problem! Preheat the oven a bit before and make the brioche rise into your oven turned off and slightly cooled down, no harm no foul ;)
For the interested ones, notice that there is no egg in this recipe so a vegan version should be very easy to make just by switching the milk!
Oh and you don’t have to wait until the buns are completely cooled down to make your hot-dogs, it’s so good still a bit warm :)
