One of the world's most luscious sandwiches, the lobster roll is an affordable way to stretch and enjoy this premium ingredient. The humble hot dog bun is traditional here, an important component that won't upstage the star. You can make the mayo-based lobster filling up to a day ahead and keep it refrigerated until just before serving.
