She said she had never tasted a hot dog bun like it and wondered what was going on.
So I went to look at the package.
Now granted they are potato buns but we've had them before and they aren't sweet.
But then I noticed the "fine print" words just to the left. Did you see them?
Yeah. Sweet Golden. One of the ingredients in these monsters was High-Fructose Corn Syrup, something SWMBO studiously tries to avoid.
Well, what to do? You can't just throw 7 hot dog buns away. That's where I suggested maybe make French Toast out of them. But she had a better idea.
Bread Pudding! Fresh out of the oven this morning. Some eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, a teensy bit of sugar and some dried sour cherries to add a touch of tartness and we were in business.
Let me tell you - that was the best use of Orowheat Sweet Golden Potato Hot Dog Buns I've ever tasted. Some crisp bacon and a cup of coffee was the ideal fast breaker this morning.
As I was finishing off my second helping, I told SWMBO "if you ever see those buns again, make sure you buy 'em!"
