    A neighbor posted this recipe on our church’s e-bulletin board and I copied it. I made it today thinking the whole time…there is no way this is going to work. I used 1/2 milk and 1/2 water and I used my Kitchen Aid mixer to knead the rolls for 5 minutes then cut them into 16 pieces instead of 12, shaped…rested the 10 minutes and bakes 10 minutes.

    Color me in shock and lying on the floor. These are some of the best rolls I’ve ever made. I can’t wait to try them out as hamburger buns.

    40 Minute Hamburger Buns or Rolls
    By Sue Edwards

    ***(Note: By Sue Edwards)*** Here on our ranch, I cook for three men besides by family and they all love hamburgers. These fluffy yet hearty buns are just right for their big appetites. I also serve the buns plain with a meal.

    * 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
    * 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water (110° to 115°)
    * 1/3 cup vegetable oil
    * 1/4 cup sugar
    * 1 egg
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

    * In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil and sugar; let
    * stand for 5 minutes. Add the egg, salt and enough flour to form a
    * soft dough.
    * Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about
    * 3-5 minutes. Do not let rise. Divide into 12 pieces; shape each into
    * a ball. Place 3 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
    * Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Bake at 425° for 8-12 minutes
    * or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
    * Yield: 1 dozen.

    Thank you for posting this! I will have to try it next time I don't have any hamburger buns and want to make burgers. It's always a problem living 15 miles from the closest store, so I need to plan, plan, plan. This will be another item I don't have to shop for! Awesome [​IMG]
