Buns Recipe

Okay, I have had people asking for the recipe I used to make the delicious hamburger buns. I got permission from the wonderful lady I got it from. (Thing is...she can't remember where she found it.) So...here goes. :D

Homemade Hamburger Buns
from BZV at Prairiehomemaker Forum

2 c warm water
5 TB sugar
1 1/2 TB yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c oil
5-6 c flour
beaten egg white
1 TB water
sesame seeds or dried onion flakes

Combine the water, sugar, yeast, salt and oil. Add in flour until its a nice bread dough that doesn't stick to the sides. Knead 10 minutes. Oil bowl and dough and let rise until doubled in size. Punch down and knead the air bubbles out. Divide into 12 pieces for hamburgers or 18 pieces for hot dogs or brats. Roll between hands into correct shapes. Place on greased cookie sheet for 20 minutes to let rise (hot dog rolls should be squished together so they rise UP and not just out) Carefully brush with mixture of egg white and water and sprinkle with seeds or flakes if desired (flakes are excellent for hamburgers) Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until nicely browned. Let cool 5 minutes and then break apart and move to a cooling rack so the bottoms don't get soggy. ENJOY!
