Wiener Bread
Bake a hot dog and bun all in one easy dish. It will delight kids of any age!
Yield: 8 servings
  • 3¼ cups bread flour
  • 1 package (2¼ tsp, ¼oz, 7g) RED STAR Active Dry Yeast
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 1½ cups water
  • 1 Tbsp shortening
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ lb. wieners or Polish sausage
  • Butter, softened
  1. In large mixer bowl, combine 2½ cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. Add warm water (120-130°F), shortening and egg to flour mixture. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 2 minutes at medium speed. By hand, gradually stir in remaining flour to make a stiff batter. Cover; let rise in warm place until almost doubled, about 30 minutes.

  2. Stir down batter. Spread evenly in greased 13x9-inch cake pan. Cut wieners in half, crosswise; press down into batter. Cover; let rise in warm place until double, about 25 minutes. Bake at 375°F for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown. Brush with butter. Serve warm with mustard.

  3. You can substitute Instant (fast-rising) in place of Active Dry Yeast in batter/no knead recipes. When using Instant Yeast, expect your batter/dough to rise faster - about 50% faster. Adjust your rise times accordingly. Traditional methods: use equal amounts; Bread Machine: use ½ tsp Instant Yeast OR ¾ tsp Active Dry Yeast per cup of flour in your recipe.

  1. How does the bread make that line to separate into rolls? Can you show a picture of that? How do you cut it into individual rolls. Picture? I have a King Arthur Flour bun pan and it has rows to form the rolls.

    • Hi Sylvia,
      The lines you see in the picture are formed as the dough rises over the wieners/sausages. There are some process pictures that you can view here that you may find helpful>> http://yesterfood.blogspot.com/2014/06/hot-dog-bread-with-dipping-sauces.html. This recipe calls for a 13×9″ cake pan. If you use a bun pan, then you will need to divide the dough into individual buns, spread it into the bun pan slots, then add the sausages, rise and bake.
      I hope you will find this information helpful.
      Happy baking!
