HOW DID WE GET THESE BUNS! HOT DOG BUNS
The modern-day hot dog on a bun was probably introduced during the St. Louis "Louisiana Purchase Exposition" in 1904 by Bavarian concessionaire Anton Feuchtwanger. It is said he loaned white gloves to his patrons to hold his piping hot sausages. As most of the gloves were not returned, he reportedly asked his brother-in-law, a baker, for help. The baker improvised long soft rolls that fit the meat - thus inventing the hot dog bun.
