After the family graduation party, I had a gazillion hot dog buns left over. I didn't want them to go to waste, so I looked for creative ideas for using them up.
One of the things I did was to make the buns into garlic bread. It was easy to do and tasted just fine. I made up some garlic butter and spread it on the bun halves. On one of the pans of buns, I added some Italian seasoning as well. Then popped them into a hot oven to crisp up. Yum!
Here's a photo of the frugal meal I put together with the garlic buns. I cooked up the small portions of pasta that I had, added spaghetti sauce, then topped it with cheese. Underneath it all was a reheated leftover hamburger patty from the BBQ.
Tasty and frugal...what more could you ask for!
