Get ready to laugh at me!!
I sure did!!
I sure did!!
If you think these hamburger buns look a little funny, here's the story!!
I decided to make hamburger buns. The recipe said it made 16 buns. So in my very small little brain I figured that meant that I need to make 32 buns. You know a top and bottom to each bun. So that is what's shown in the picture. I was very proud and they tasted very yummy! Since I was done I went on with my day and began Science class with the kids. About 20 minutes later I looked in the kitchen and burst out laughing...
I'm sure you all can figure it out. I should have made 16 thicker buns and cut them in half!! DUH!!!! Okay so now I know!!!
Note: hubby really liked putting one on top and one on bottom when we had hamburgers, so I guess it wasn't so bad after all!
I was determined to do it right, so the next day I made more....
Here's closer to how they should look...
We loved the buns so much I made some of them into hot dog buns too! I have a little work to do on completely shaping them perfectly but it's a start!!
Best thing is that it's one more thing each week that I don't have to buy and they're so much better tasting than the cheap store bought kind!
Oh and did I mention it really is very simple to do.
Here's the recipe I used.
1 1/4 cup warm milk
6 T butter
3 T sugar
4 cups bread flour
2 tsp. salt
1 T yeast (1 pkg)
Mix warm milk and yeast, beat in egg. Add butter, sugar, salt -- Mix well -- Add flour 1 cup at a time. Put on a floured surface and knead a few times. Put in greased bowl and let it rise until double. (cover with towel)
Divide into shapes (hamburger or hot dog buns) and put on cookie sheet or pan -- let it rise again until double.
Bake at 375 degrees
I took a combination of this recipe and this recipe
to make it work for me!
