Another Very Important Reason to Stock Up on Hot Dog Buns

We love lobster rolls for their perfect pairing of high-end (lobster) and low-end (hot dog bun) ingredients. This recipe from the founders of the Luke's Lobster restaurants, demonstrates just how delicious the quintessential Maine sandwich can be—if you follow two key points. First, use split-top buns. They sit upright on a flat bottom and have bread-y (rather than crusty) sides, so you can butter and grill the outside to the perfect crispness. Second, don't mix the lobster meat with anything; you want its delicate flavor to shine. Spread mayo on the inside of the buns, drizzle butter over the meat, sprinkle seasoning on top and that's it.
