The following recipe can be used for either hamburger or hot dog buns. They only change is in how you shape them.
|Love these Applegate Farm Beef Hotdogs!|
- 1 Cup Milk
- 1/2 Cup Water
- 1/4 Cup Butter
- 4 1/2 Cups Flour (you can mix and match but I used all wheat)
- 2 1/4 Tsp. Yeast (or one envelope)
- 1 Tbsp. Raw Honey
- 1 1/2 Tsp. Salt
- 1 Egg, beaten well
Divide the dough evenly into 12-16 pieces, depending on how big or small you want your buns.
Shape into smooth balls and place on a parchment paper covered baking sheet. Flatten the balls a bit.
Hot dog buns
Roll dough into a long, narrow rectangle. Divide dough into bun sections and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Leave sides touching.
Cover and let dough rise for about 30-35 minutes until they are about doubled in size.
Bake at 400F for 10 to 12 minutes.
If you would like "stuff" on your buns to flavor them, brush beaten egg on the top and sprinkle with minced onion, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, whatever you like, just before you put them into the oven.
These are very tasty buns and infinitely better than store bought!
I found that the hot dog buns are easier to stuff if you split them on the top instead of down the side.
Just one more thing I can cross off my "buy at the store" list!
