On several of the bread making and wheat milling groups I’m on, people have been talking about the 40 minute hamburger bun recipe. I made rolls and buns today and took the rolls to a friend’s house. They were a big hit.
I’ll admit they aren’t the best yeast rolls I’ve ever made but seriously . . 40 minutes . . can’t have everything, right? I melted butter, added chopped garlic, dipped the tops in the butter before baking, then sprinkled with Bagel Everything Seasoning. From one recipe, I could get 9 rolls and 6 hamburger buns or 18 rolls.
Most of the hamburger buns we buy, usually at Walmart, aren’t anything to write home about either and these are so easy that I’m sure this is what we’ll be using from now on. It seems every time Vince says “Want to grill burgers tonight?” we don’t have buns. I’ll buy buns, we don’t make the burgers and even with them in the fridge, they get old and don’t taste terribly fresh.
This is almost the exact same recipe for the Amish White Bread that I’ve made for so many years.
These rolls/buns are very soft and I like a denser bread. I think I’m going to mill some hard white wheat and try that once these rolls/buns are used up.
