New England Style Split Top Hot Dog Rolls Sat, 06/24/06 4:39 PM (permalink)
I have seen people inquire about where to buy "New England" style split top hot dog rolls - I just noticed that Trader Joe's sells them - the ones that I saw were whole wheat. This ia local here in MA but I would think that TJ's would offer the same products in its stores nationwide.

    Dearfolk,
    Having never had the privlilege (sp.?) of checking out a Trader Joe's emporium, I can offer another suggestion. Surely one of the bakeries that makes these can ship some out to another part of the country: a friend of mine took my suggestion and e-mailed a bakery in Waterbury, CT. that makes them and they were glad to send her a pack of them -- 24, I think -- for a sensationally cheap price.
    Maybe some of you in New England will have a better option to offer, or something more concrete. But not a concrete, thank you -- I'm on a diet this week.

      We get ours from Nickles Bakery, a wholesale bakery, don't know if you have them in your part of the country or not.

        Thats because they are sensationally bad rolls.

        There are far better rolls available in almost every market..from potato rolls to any good side-split hotdog roll.

        Although I like a fresh toasted roll for my lobster/dog when I'm back up north, most areas of the country offer some brand of yeast(y)/potato type roll that beats the pants off any NE type split top rolls I've eaten.

        In fact, most often I would get rid of the roll and munch on the lobster. I hate bad bread...to me, much of the sandwich experience starts with the bread. It either is excellent bread that compliments..or it should be served without the bread.

          Wegman's has them. They're OK, neither better nor worse than an average hot dog roll.

            I had similar questions, upon questions a bit back.. Had a lot of good input:

              Aside from the novelty that a New England bun imparts for folks used to plain old hot dog rolls, there's the culinary practicality. The open sides take to buttering and toasting like nobody's business.

              Hence, while the inside of the bun tends to dog and topping, the butter-toasted outsides supply the bonus taste...the one that makes you look at your your friend and say, "Man, this is really good. "

                Would love to see this style roll made with a rye bread recipe. I'd probably eat a barker more often. Chow Jim

                  I bet the rye would be great for polish sausage or brats!

                    I've often thought that a New England style roll made out of English Muffin bread, toasted, would present a dog well.

                      I can picture a N.E. style light rye bun grilled then a slice of swiss in the pocket barker on top a good mustard and topped off with carmilised onions.

                        That sounds really good, rye hot dog rolls, mmm, a new niche in the hotdog roll industry?

                          Dearfolk,
                          Hold that thought! Don't let it get lost!! I plumb think y'all are on to something bigtime!!
                          Anyone out there part of a small, local bakery wanna try this? I'd be anxious to see how it works out.

                          P. S. Now I find myself wanting a livermush sandwich on real Jewish rye bread (there's a combo to make any Orthodox Rabbi groan with disapproval!) with mustard and some Vidalia onion. Betcha I couldn't eat just one!! A cold glass of buttermilk on the side would be a nice plus, too. -- "Oy Gestalt!" mutters our hypothetical Rabbi. (We Presbyterians have no such dietary strictures.)

                              My sister sends me NE hot dog buns, usually two packages and a package of some awesome Portugese rolls too boot. GOOD STUFF!

                              Yes, toasting the sides puts the **magic** in the bun!

                                I am a NE native, and just visited New England for the first time last year and discovered these rolls. I'm wondering what is the proper way to toast/grill the rolls? I'm ordering a pkg and at nearly $1 each and their long trek to NE, I want to make them properly so I can fully enjoy my experience!

                                  At the risk of getting myself in too deep, I'd be happy to send any of you nice people here split-top rolls. I'm in New Haven, CT, and can get these anywhere.

                                    To all,

                                    Living in the "Free" state of Maryland I can get the split tops whenever I want. I just go to the local "Giant" supermarket and pick up a pack of Pepperidge Farms split tops. I would imagine, although I cannot confirm this but if you have a grocery store that carries Pepperidge Farms they probably have split tops or can get them.

                                    To toast them I just open them up and put them on the grill. Hope this helps. They are great with shrimp salad as well.

                                      Grill works. A good doghouse will slap the naked sides on the griddle and toast 'em in grease, preferably butter, until properly toasted.

                                      At home, think of how you'd make a grilled cheese sandwich, or plain old fried toast. Either brush the cut sides with melted butter, or butter lightly with soft butter, or have enough butter in the pan to dampen the outside of the bun when it hits the pan. Toast both sides and fill with tubesteak and appropriate condiments, including a good relish or picalilli for a New England experience.

                                      Somtimes I saute some onions in a small pan, put them in a condiment dish for serving, then do the buns in the same pan.

                                          Thanks for the advice. I was thinking the grill would work, but wasn't quite sure if it was the "best" way.

                                          booboobirdie, you're teasing me. If you can get them to Nebraska for less than $20 for 24, I'm all over it. I know this is crazy expensive, but that's what they're charging.

                                          And Pepperidge Farms doesn't have that particular product around here. I suppose they think the rednecks in NE just wouldn't get it. For the most part, that's probably true.

                                            dg419 - you're confusing me with "NE." As a native New Yorker, "NE" means New England.
                                            At first, I was terribly confused by your sentence, " am a NE native, and just visited New England for the first time..."

                                            I guess it's pretty funny when you consider some other state postal codes that have a different locale meaning:
                                            For example, did you know that SC is Southern California, or that LA is Los Angeles and SD is San Diego? in stead of South Carolina, Louisianna and South Dakota.

                                            I think that both the "SC" and "LA" terms have had confusing results on this site.

                                            oh, well. I hope you get your New England style rolls soon. I get mine from Wegman's. Love 'em. Much better than cheapo hotdog rolls. But I'm not above the potato roll either.

                                            oh, yeah - when making a clam or other seafood roll, I butter the sides and grill it on a skillet (or pan). When having a hotdog, the barbecue grill works great.

                                              Although I haven't tried them, I've seen the split top rolls in the summer months the bread area of our local (Allentown PA) Target store.

                                                I'm sorry to confuse you. I live in the state of NE. As in Nebraska. Pretty far away from the "other" NE.

                                                  I have looked for this type of roll for ever here in Dallas- no such luck- but a lobster roll just doesn't taste the same on a hot dog bun or on a ptato roll. booboobirdie- I would also be interested if you could ship to Dallas area at the above mentioned price :)

                                                      King Arthur Flour sells a NE hotdog pan, a little on the side $39.95. They also have the recipe for the rolls.If you have the pan I quess you could use any type of flour.

                                                            No, actually among the hipsters in Boston it's Lower Allston.

                                                            Don't forget, you can also fill those butter-toasted gems with fried clams, scallops or oysters, or even any lobster salad you just happen to have lying around.
