    I did not know there was a barbeque season, lost touch with the seasons in the north of the world.

    Some one asked me what "snack food" I missed eating from the UK, and my answer is still the hotdogs that were sold at Victoria railway station in the 1960's. I do not know if they are still there as I do not recall seeing them the last time I was there in 1986.

    I cannot help with low carb bun recipes...

    If they are they have probably gone stale by now.

    There was real meat in the hotdogs those days, not lips, ears, cheeks and r soles like today's offerings.

    Ahh nostalgia... :D

    Yep, our BBQ season is two weeks in the middle of the year.

    I would say bake some, there are loads of recipes that get good reviews, or maybe get some lower carb wraps (around 10 carbs each) and roll up a sausage in those, or use 1 half of the roll and a lettuce leaf for the other half.

    Lidl rolls. Oh, hang on, they don't make them any more.

    I've already cleared one of six freezer shelves of my Lidl roll stash. Eventually they will run out. :-(

    Not unless you make me an offer so ludicrously high that I can fund my next holiday!:cool:

    First thought would be about £25 per roll not including delivery, minimum order 40 rolls.:woot:

    Or if I am swamped with offers I can put them on eBay.

    I may have most of the dwindling UK supply and they aren't making them any more.

    Hmmmm....charity auction? Sotheby's?
