LOUISVILLE, KY – When the Dan-O’s Seasoning team decided it was going to cook a giant burger for its first annual cornhole tournament, it knew it was going to need a giant bun. In the search for one, the team was tipped off to one of the oldest bakeries in the country, right here in Louisville, KY.
The Dan-O’s team connected with the current owner and operator of Heitzman Bakery, and it was clear right away that they were up to the task of making the giant bun. The bakery has been in business since 1891, serving up baked goods and deli items to the Louisville community for 130 years.
The bun was made with a traditional sweet dough and made from a mix of old-school and new-school techniques to make a perfect end-product. The dough for the custom buns weighed in at 4.5 lbs, while most standard buns weigh only 4 oz.
The end product was a bun that was 17 inches in diameter, perfect for Dan-O’s Big Time Burger set to be cooked later that afternoon. The Big Time Burger was made with over 10 lbs of brisket and steak, freshly ground by Dan-O himself!
Heitzman Bakery was very welcoming to the Dan-O’s Seasoning team and had no problems getting them their giant buns with only a few days’ notice. They were even open to letting the Dan-O’s team film, helping them complete their story of the Big Time Burger for Dan-O’s First Annual Cornhole Classic.
Dan-O’s Seasoning would like to give a special thanks to Dan and the team at Heitzman Bakery for their hospitality and impressive work on the giant buns. You can find Heitman Bakery at 9426 Shelbyville Rd, Louisville, KY, where they can take care of all your bakery, deli, catering, and lunch needs.
