just last week I was complaining about hamburger buns and how I needed a recipe.Well I had no sooner published that post when the answer landed on my computer.One of the blogs I follow here is a genius when it comes to finding purpose to things in ways you might not think. Well on Sundays she has started a giving back day and last Sunday she introduced me to Robin. Guess what she makes down in Georgia. That's right homemade burger rolls and they're soft just like I wanted. Isn't that great!!!
S,I put Vicky(my unbelievable Viking mixer) to work on my latest attempt in the fine art of baking. Robin's instructions were very easy.
Line up you ingredients:
3/4cup hot water
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoon yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 3/4 -3 cups flour
Set aside 1/2 of your flour and put everything else in your mixing bowl. Beat till smooth adding flour as you mix till dough is tacky but not sticky. It took all 3 cups for me. Keep kneading with mixer for 5 minutes.
Let your dough rest for a few minutes. I stayed away for about 15 minutes,that's was my interpretation of a few minutes.It seemed to be fine. Divide in 8 parts. I should have cut my dough in squares trying to form a triangle into a ball was the hardest part of the recipe. Place rolled balls on a greased cookie sheet flatten slightly allow to double. This took about 20 minutes in my area.Depending on time of year and temperature this could vary.Bake in a preheated oven set at 350 degrees for 15 -18 minutes.
I had no onion powder and couldn't wait to try these so I sauteed onions and sprinkled on 1/2 of the rolls. Both were yummy. I plan on making these again so that the rest of the family can get a taste. Um that's how good they are............................said the hobbit
