Recipe: hot dog or hamburger buns

hotdogbunsSummer is here, and so is grilling season.  We grilled up some delicious fresh sausages from the Seward Co-op the other night and baked up our own buns to eat them on.  Like everything we’ve been trying lately, we were surprised at how easy it was.

Hamburger or hot dog buns
3 c. white bread flour
1 1/4 c. whole wheat bread flour
2 1/4 tsp. yeast
1 c. milk
1/3 c. sugar (optional)
1/3 c. butter
3/4 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten

Put all ingredients in bread machine and set to “dough” setting (2 lb size). When cycle is complete (usually around 1.5-2 hours), remove dough from machine and divide into 12 pieces.  Shape into desired shape — hamburger or hot dog, and place on a greased baking sheet.  Let rise for about 30 min.  Bake in 375 degree oven for 12-15 minutes.

I found these to be a little sweeter than I normally would like, so next time I’m leaving the sugar out.  I would also like to make them a little more “whole” wheat than this, but that’s going to have to be a work-in-progress.  This made quite a few more than we needed, so we froze the leftovers.
