Hot Dog Buns Or Hot Dog Rolls? Here’s What New England Calls Them.
While on vacation, my fiance, Madeleine and I decided we were going to grill some hot dogs. Who knew the something so simple would turn into this?
While we were at the store, she said, “You grab the hot dogs and I’ll get the rolls.” To which I replied, “You mean buns?” Well after that turned into a quick conversation about the proper name…she asked a complete stranger. He said buns. At which point she walked off and came back holding a bag that said "hot dog rolls." Despite the fact I showed her bag after bag that said "buns"...the debate wages on.
When I posed the question on Facebook to WOKQ and WPKQ listeners, here's what they had to say:
Well it looks like we're all going to have to agree to disagree. I won't even get into the whole issue of putting ketchup on a dog. Or do you spell it ketchup or catsup. We'll just leave that debate for another day.
Enjoy your hot dogs how ever you eat them.
