Steaming Bread Rolls At Home

Believe it or not steaming bread rolls and hot dog buns at home is actually very simple. All you will need is a paper towel, a bread roll or a hot dog bun and a microwave. You may want to do this because you love the way the freshly steamed bread rolls from KFC taste or you may want to make yourself a hot dog. This method works fine for both and can be done within a minute. Also there is no reason why you can't do this with regular bread as well if that's all you have in your kitchen at the moment.
