My Mother-In-Law's buns are the best.
And as strange as that sounds, it's perfectly normal to walk around saying Jean has the BEST buns...We mean it in a good way. =)
They even look the best! See??
Now, you must have the recipe. It's quick, easy, and fool proof!!
1 tablespoon yeast
1/2 tsp sugar
1 3/4 cups warm water
1/3 cup powdered milk
2 tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 tsp salt
3 tablespoons butter, melted (I used olive oil)
4-5 cups flour (or a mix, half and half, whole wheat/unbleached)
Mix yeast, sugar, and 1/2 cup of the warm water. Let rest 10 minutes.
Whisk the rest of the water with the milk, sugar, salt, butter, and yeast mixture. Add 2 cups flour and beat 1 minute. Knead in the remaining flour. Turn onto oiled surface and hand knead 3 minutes, adding flour if necessary. Put into greased bowl, cover, and let raise 1 1/4 hours. Divide into 12 equal pieces and form into ball. Flatten ball and put on greased pan. Raise for 20 more minutes and bake on 350 for 20 mins or until lightly browned.
See? How easy is that anyway?? No complicating directions. No special steps. Just mix, raise, roll, and bake! Boy, were these ever a hit in tonight's dinner!
To assemble our burger, you'll need a burger, caramelized sweet onion, some peppered bacon, sliced pepperjack cheese, some really good bbq sauce, some lettuce and tomato, and that's pretty much it! Mouth watering satisfaction!!
I'm probably going to look at this picture every day. It makes me smile. And be kinda hungry. YUM!
