Keto Hot Dog Buns Recipe

Once we try hot dogs, their memories will haunt our life to the end. Luckily, once we can make keto hot dog buns, we can enjoy them whenever we want!

Apex predators are those animals in the food chain that haven’t got much to fear from its natural environment. As the strongest and sharpest toothed animals, they command respect around the block solely with their smile.

They keep in control the population underneath them. Cruel as may seem, they are crucial part of the ecosystem. Once they are gone, the underlying population could spiral out of control overcrowding the land, destroying the available resources and ultimately even leading a complete destruction of the living habitat, leaving behind only a desolate land.

Despite certain shortcomings of the human body, we managed to work our way from being mostly pray into the top predator, there is on this crusty planet. In many areas where we killed off the top predators, the somber task of keeping underlying population in control fall on us.

Luckily, we like to be in control which seems a basic survivor instinct of ours. The more aspects of our life we can govern, the more we can predict about our future and the more secure we feel.

This is why at times of great uncertainty people stock up with guns and toilet paper. No one likes to be left in a crappy situation without the crucial tools at hand.

In reality though, we aren’t really in control more than we are in a modern driver assisted car. We may think, we are driving because we are in the driving seat but in reality, there is a computer keeps the car on the road correcting our sloppy responses and playing fake engine noise through speakers for us to enjoy the ride.

We have no idea what really is going on inside the engine or between the engine and the wheels, let alone between the tires and the road. We only care to have an enjoyable ride without knowing about anything else.

Afterall who cares how it works and what’s in it if we can lay back a bit and have some rest. If we can choose to do it ourselves or let someone else do it, we are fine going with the easiest solution without bothering much about its inner workings.

Similarly, as we do it with hot dogs. We don’t care what’s in a hot dog, was it really made of dogs (sometimes yes) or that having a modern hot dog once a day would be the same as smoking daily in terms of cancer risks.

Once we see hot dogs, our primitive brains kick in the hot dog routine and we need to have one as we had one before and before that when we built our habit for hot dogs. If our neocortex tries to intervene, like no I don’t need it this time cos I have enough food stored in fat for a month then starts the emotional blackmail session bringing up good old memories about having our first hot dog with dad or mum or from that girl next-door.

If we can’t get out of the situation quick enough then soon the messages reach the saliva production glands and we start licking our mouth for a bit of something.

Making an internal debate while staring into our colorful past and licking our mouth could lead us into unwanted territory of embarrassing ourselves in front of our favorite street vendors pretty quickly.

If we were strong enough and could get escape, we land into no better situation as we are going to be haunted by hot dog dreams that will get stronger day after day. Our two brains can make our life into a virtual battlefield where our very survival is at stake.

Luckily, even if we follow a low carb diet like keto, we don’t need to fall into molten rocks in a volcano to satisfy our unmanageable desire for our precious. In the coziness of our kitchen, we can whip up something pretty quickly that will hold a piece of sausage and some dressing that is low in carbs, yet satisfying enough for everyone.Keto-hot-dog-bun-recipe-4-SunCakeMom

  6. Shape the buns according to the size of our sausages. The buns will double in size but not much in length as width. Those who got used to gluten filled baking will notice that even though the dough is soft, it doesn’t stick nearly as much to our hands as we used to. It’s completely manageable.Keto-hot-dog-bun-recipe-Process-7-SunCakeMom
  7. Place the formed buns into the pre-heated oven for 60 – 70 minutes. Don’t forget to swap sides after about 40 minutes if our oven has the tendency for uneven heat distribution.Keto-hot-dog-bun-recipe-Process-8-SunCakeMom
