Does anyone know and recommend where you can buy Hot Dog and Hamburger buns in the Lucerne/Zug area?

Yep. I always wonder too, why they sell hotdogs in sets of 4, but buns in sets of 3.

Re: Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns

I find Migros' are the best. Their hamburger buns are pre cut and I use their sandwich buns for hot dogs.

Were we separated at birth?

Avoid those marked as "Hot Dog Buns" (x4) and Coop "Hamburger Buns" (x6). These have some preservatives to give them a long shelf life, but the bread is very crumbly and disintegrates.

In the States, they typically sell hotdogs in packs of 10, but buns in packs of 8. Invite 39 of your friends together, buy 40 of each and everything works out.

Re: Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns

Just a comment - the hamburger and hotdogs buns they sell here in pre-labeled packages are just horrible. We started using the fresh lait buns for hamburgers and love them and they hold up better (don't know what they are called on the German side) and for hotdogs the fresh buns also, but I don't know their name - long and look soft. Much better.

Re: Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns

For hot dogs, you can also use the Frischback-Baguettes

1. bake
2. poke
3. stuff with hotdog/mustard/relish/mayo/etc. etc.

Yes, that's why I like the Migros ones. They cost a bit more, but they hold together while you're eating plus being pre-cut means you don't end up with lopsided slices (which is what I get if I use anything else). Also why I get their sandwich buns for hot dogs. The others just fall apart and don't taste as good either.

TiMow - not that I know of. Unless you know something I don't!

It's just that what you wrote is exactly the same as I do/buy ..... after trying all that's on offer. The Migros ones have a proper short shelf life - meaning minimal crap added.

I put my packs in the freezer and take out when I need them.

I agree. We've tried all the different ones, including ones on offer from places like Aldi, Lidl and Otto's (one case where Aldi and Lidl aren't better) and they just tend to fall to pieces about 30 seconds after you start eating them. For me it's worth the extra cost.

Yep - separated at birth ..... I was the ugly one abandoned on a doorstep.

Re: Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns

I've seen hamburger buns also sold at the really large Coops. I think they may even have something like "XXL American Buns" written on them. Heh heh.

Not sure if they're any better than the Migros ones, though.

I haven't tried the migros ones but the Coop ones are really bad and fall apart (which I think someone said above).
