Vegetable Open Hot Dog Buns

Loads of fiber and vitamin-rich veggies and low-fat butter go into these sandwiches with a difference. Low in calories, the whole wheat Buns are apt for weight watchers, diabetics and people with heart disease.

Hot dogs are commonly paired with a bland hot dog roll made from flour that has been bleached and thoroughly denatured, only having to be fortified again with nutrients. My hot dog gone starts with a whole-grain hot dog roll. Unfortunately, finding a whole-grain hot dog roll can be a challenge in an average grocery store. (You may have more luck at health and natural food stores.) Your best bet may be just a slice of multi grain bread. But, Fortunately I found them, and this time, I don't want to wrap it, I just want to make it like an Open Sandwich, So These are the Open Hot Dog Buns!!! Very Quick and Easy to make it, and Yes, They are Superrrr Yummy!!! Ideal for kids Party or in a kids Lunch Box too. So For that we will need:


2 whole wheat hot dog Buns
1/4 cup finely chopped onions

1/4 cup chopped carrots
1/4 cup chopped French Beans
