“If you want an authentic Maine Lobster Roll, all you will have in it is lobster and a just a tad of mayonnaise. Nothing else. Other things may be good and have them if you like, but a Maine one is maine-ly lobster. You may put it on any roll you like, but I generally use a hotdog type roll with the slit on top. A homemade hotdog roll would be wonderful. I always have the pieces pretty good sized so you can see the claw and pieces of the tail. Yummy!!!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lobster (cooked and picked)
  • 12-1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 hot dog bun, with slit on top


  1. Boil the lobster for about 16-18 minutes.
  2. Pick apart and cut up in good-sized pieces.
  3. Put the mayonnaise on and mix.
  4. I usually put a little butter on the sides of the roll and place it on the griddle for a couple of minutes to brown it.
  5. Fill it and enjoy.
  6. NOTE: I figure one lobster per roll which would be about 3-5 ounces of meat; this should make a stuffed lobster roll.
