If the dog is shorter than the bun, I generally push the meat so one of the ends match, then eat the bread dominate side first.

I usually make it all even up so every bite has some of both. If the bun is way way bigger then I would usually throw out the last piece of bread.

I’ll throw the extra bread to the birds. They will find it, even if they’re not around at the time.

Depends on the bun. If it is one of those mass-produced buns that tastes like Styrofoam, I will throw it out.

On the other hand, if it’s a bakery bun and has a crust and some taste, i will eat it.

Yes I do. I don’t waste food. (Unless it’s something I WILL NOT eat.)

Yep. I eat the whole thing.

I would win the “clean plate” award if they still gave those out in elementary school.

Once the meat is gone, I’m done.

If you treat the bun as part of the cooking process like toasting or grilling it, then it is just as delicious as the dog.

I don’t end up with more bun than dog. If one gets to the end of the dog, simply pop the whole remainder in one’s mouth. That way you get all the mustard and any remaining onion.

I learned a lot from this Q. I just assumed everyone ate the whole thing. Who knew?! Thanks!

Depends on how hungry I am.
And depends on quality of the bun.

I’m in the “clean plate” camp too. I hate throwing away good food. But if the bun is dry and bland, I would not consider it to be good so off it goes.

I like my hamburger and hot dog buns to be toasted (on the grill, preferably), instead of a nice hot burger or dog in a cold bun.

Yes I eat the whole thing, The bread is part of the meal!

Hot dog buns are rarely a bread of any quality. I’ll definitely throw those ones out. I know I’m already eating a gas station hotdog, but I still have some standards, dammit. There’s no way you’re convincing me that ketchupy bun end still counts as food.

An actually good bun I will certainly eat.

^^^^^ ”...that ketchupy bun end”

That would be an abomination. Ketchup does not belong anywhere near a hot dog. You don’t get to comment on the quality of a hot dog bun if you put ketchup on a hot dog. Only children suffering from parental neglect put ketchup on a hot dog.

Well, how the fuck am I supposed to get that horrible bun down my gullet without any lubricant? Mustard and relish are better, yes, but the kind you get with hot dogs are unholy imitations of what they should be.

And if you think I’m going to admit to sucking back little packets of mayo with my dog, you are mistaken.
