Buns, Rolls, Whathaveyou

Buns, RollsIt seems that people all have all different names for these glorious bread creations - hamburger buns or rolls, but whatever the name, I had been thinking about attempting buns for a few months now, but wasn't sold on it until I saw this post at momadvice. All the recipes that I have tried from her site have turned out great, so I knew Amy wouldn't steer me wrong.

I had made buns once with my mom when I was about 8 years old, and I remember forming lots of little mounds of dough and it being a long process. This was surprisingly easy with the help of my bread machine and I loved that the house smelled like fresh bread all day! Here are my dough balls before rising on my stone:

I made the hamburger bun size, and we ate them as Chicken Avocado Sandwiches, then had Egg, Cheese, and Turkey Bacon Breakfast sandwiches the next morning. The buns worked great for both!

Hot Dog/Hamburger Buns/Rolls

1 1/4 cups skim milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil or canola oil
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoons bread machine yeast

1. Place all ingredients in order recommended by your bread machine manufacturer.
2. When dough cycle is complete remove from machine and proceed.
3. Cut into a long log and cut into 12 pieces for hot dog buns or 9 pieces for large hamburger buns. Put on parchment-lined baking sheet so sides are almost touching or pizza stone.
4. Cover with cloth and rise for 45-60 minutes or until doubled.
5. Turn oven to 400°F and when you put the buns in the oven, reduce temperature immediately to 375° and bake hot dog buns 12-15 minutes and hamburger buns 12-17 minutes.
