Last night I was getting ready to make dinner – hamburgers and fries. Now I’m out of Everything right now so I knew I’d have to make the buns for the burgers. I pulled up this quick and easy recipe I’ve made before from http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/40-minute-hamburger-buns. While pulling out the ingrediance realized that I was out of eggs to 😦 . Well shoot what am I going to do? It’s too late to run to the store! Internet to the rescue! I looked up ‘egg replacements’ and I think I liked them better than with the egg in them!
Try them and you may never buy buns again!
So here’s the recipe
2 Tbs Active Dry Yeast
A little over a Cup of hot water
1/4 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup Oil
1 Egg or replacement (1/3 Cup water, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1 Tbs oil)
1 tsp salt
3 1/2 Cups flour
In a bowl put Water, Yeast, Sugar, and Oil. Set aside for about 5 minutes to Bloom (it’ll get all bubbly 😉 )
In a small bowl slightly beat the egg or combine the ingrediance for the replacement.
Prepare your mixer with the dough hook. Put the flour and salt in the bowl. When the Yeast mixture is ready add it and the egg (or egg replacement) to the flour and salt. Mix on medium for 3 – 5 minutes until a soft dough forms.
DO NOT LET RISE
Seperate into 12 rolls onto a greased or parchment covered cookie sheet. Yes they will seem small. Cover and let rise while your oven preheats (about 10 to 15 minutes).
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and bake for 10 – 12 minutes (mine usually take about 11 lol) until the tops are a nice golden brown.
Give them a few minutes to cool enough to handle.
