Split Decision

At Epicurious, Kendra Vaculin makes the case for split-top hot dog buns:

“Following in the tradition of the original clam sandwich, split-top buns are commonly used for lobster and crab rolls, as they are able to neatly hold a serious scoop of seafood salad. But I’d argue that anything that uses a bun as a vessel, from bratwurst to meatball subs to simple butterflied dogs, can be improved by using a bun that’s cut on the top.”
