My son's favourite food became hotdogs this summer. While I do not advocate them as a staple in his diet, I do like to have them handy for quick lunches or dinners.
Anyway, went off to my local Loblaws to buy the only buns he can eat, the only top sliced ones they had had the dreaded may contain sesame seeds.
Arrgh! :evil:
So - what kind was it I used to buy? And have they changed? Is anyone else still finding them.
Sigh

And he starts grade one tomorrow - all day, in school. Sigh.

Good luck all tomorrow!

I haven't bought them recently but the top slice buns we bought in the past were by Wonder/Weston bakery that did not have the warning. Which brand did you see that had the warning?

I just bought a package of Wonder Real Big hot dog buns (Weston) and the list of allergens is:

May contain trace amounts of sesame seeds, milk products, egg products, soy products, sulphites.

I have no idea if they were sesame-free before, as I only check for nuts and peanuts.

I am sure they were the Wonder buns - Ii was in a bit of a shock so I did not register other than - oh no - sesame seeds.
I will have to recuperate and go back and check again.
Sigh

Thanks!

We have not been able to find a safe hotdog or hamburger bun for our son, so we make buns using our bread machine. The Wonder buns with the slice on top had traces of egg in it, so it wasn't safe for us anyway. Too bad it also has traces of sesame... sigh... At least if you make your own, you KNOW they're safe.

Well, I do wish I had read this thread. Preferably before eating those buns a few days ago.

After eating two hotdogs, my husband noticed the *may contain sesame* warning. He said it just JUMPED out at him. No reaction, so I guess I was lucky.

I'm always so careful about labels, but we are both down with bad colds and we both just forgot. Guess it goes to show -- always read the label.

But, I'm really depressed about not having any safe hotdog buns anymore.

most gluten-free bread tastes like poop, and i've never bought any (actually, i don't really know if it tastes bad, because i've only had my homemade ... but i hear it does!)

anyway, i checked out a site that i remember reading who make hot dog buns.

the only thing is you might want to toast them (i hear that toasting gf bread makes it tastier)

Okay, I know this is not a great substitute for a REAL hot dog bun, but, sometimes (when I just don't want to spend the extra time making buns) I will just make a regular loaf of bread in our breadmaker, and just use slices of bread for the hot dogs. The recipe I use to make buns is the same as the regular white (or whole wheat) loaf, so the taste is the same, but the presentation is a little lacking. But, heck, the bread is still homemade! It's amazing the effort we have to put into some of these "simple" meals!

I was just enjoying having something that I can pick up at the store and eat right away. No need to spend an hour cooking. Just throw it on the b-b-q or fry it up. No need to plan DAYS in advance that you want a stupid little hot dog.

Ya ya! I know. I'm whining.

Yup, I hear you Anna Marie... when I hear someone say "Let's just have hot dogs for dinner" I think "Geez, wouldn't it be nice to "just" have hot dogs".

I don't know if this helps any, but when I was a kid and we didn't have any buns in the house, we'd just use a slice of white bread as a substitute. I know it's not a bun...but...? Do those of you dealing with sesame allergy have commercially made white bread available to you that is sesame-free?

Ethansmom - Dempsters has 1 possible 2 commercial breads that don't have the sesame warning. The white bread doesn't work for us personally because it has soy flour and my daughter reacts to it. It's just nice to have a few options:)

Ethan's mom, check this link. It is page 2 of a general sesame seed discussion - started before we had a specific forum for it.

http://www.allergicliving.com/forum/vie ... c&start=15

Near the bottom someone mentioned Dimflmeier Bread. (I think I might have spelled that wrong.) I still buy it. There is rye and dark rye, and a few other kinds of bread. I'm not sure where you are, or how wide their area is.

For plain white bread we eat Dempster's.

I have used tortilla bread for hotdogs when we didn't have buns or couldn't find safe buns. That might work - although I know it's not the same thing as a real bun...
