"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
This recipe for Hamburger Buns, by Sara Price, is from The Williams Family Cookbook,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
1c warm water 2T butter - Room Temperature and creamed 1 egg 3 1/4 c flour 1/4c sugar 1t salt 1T yeast
Proof yeast in water and some honey. Combine all ingredients but flour. Mix in flour until good workable consistency. Knead 10 minutes turn over in greased bowl. Let rise double, divide into 8-10 pieces, roll into a ball then flatten on greased cookie sheet. Let double. Preheat oven to 375º.
You can glaze the buns with egg yolk and some water and sprinkle on sesame seeds or leave plain.
Bake 12-15 minutes until golden brown. Butter tops and let cool.
This dough is rather flexable. If you are in a hurry, you can skip the first rising, go straight to forming your rolls and let it rise once and they will still turn out wonderful. These are the best buns you're ever going to taste.
