A little bun, anyone?

I'm sure it will shock you to know that I usually make all of our buns too...hamburger, hot dog, sausage :)

It is BBQ season after all, so I have made this recipe a couple of times already--it is a great all-purpose bun, freezes well and works great for sandwiches too!!

Hamburger/Hot Dog Buns for the Bread Machine

Add to your bread machine in this order:
1 cup hot water
1 egg
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup softened butter
1/4 cup sugar
3 cups flour
3 tsp quick rise yeast

Select dough setting and press start.  (see how easy this is so far??)

Divide dough into at least 8 pieces (we like smaller burgers at our house, so I usually divide into 12...)
Roll pieces of dough into balls and flatten for hamburgers or shape into 6 inch rolls for hot dogs.  Place on a baking sheet.  Cover with a damp tea towel and let rise in a warm oven for 20 minutes. (HINT: to warm oven slightly, turn oven on to warm setting for 2 minutes, then turn it off, and place covered dough in oven to rise--make sure you remove to preheat :)

Brush buns with melted butter and bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes or so..until golden brown.
