Buns for Sandwiches

Nice recipe for some one day buns for sandwiches, hot dogs, or burgers.   Adapted from a Beth Hensperger recipe.  I had just written out the recipe with instructions and deleted the whole thing ; /   So here goes again!


8 oz. Spring Water


1 Large Egg


4 TBsp. soft unsalted Butter


2 TBsp. Sugar or Honey


15 oz. Bread Flour with extra to adjust hydration if needed.  I used Gold Medal Bread Flour on sale here for less than 2 bucks a 5 lb. bag.


1/4 cup King Arthur dry Milk Powder


1/4 cup mashed potato - I used a microwaved potato.  Fast and easy


1 1/2 tsp. sea salt


2 1/4 tsp. IADYeast


  1 egg yolk plus 2 Tbsp. water and 2 Tbsp. milk for glazing


   Sesame and Poppy seeds, springs of fresh Rosemary.


Add liquid ingredients to KA Mixer, add dry ingredients,  I sift my flour and dry  milk powder together.  The KA Dry Milk Powder tends to be sticky and can clump together and become hard if left with moisture for to long..so I just always sift it with my flour..using a wisk or a wire scoop.  Mixed until shaggy adding more flour as needed to adjust hydration.  Cover and rest 25 minutes.  Knead until gluten formation just begins.  Stretch and folds 30 minutes apart until gluten has formed nice windowpane.  Pour out onto counter, shape even weighed rolls, I made 8.  Place on parchment lined pan and press down to shape buns.  I pressed a biscuit cutter nearly all the way through just for a little extra pattern on rolls.  Let rise till nearly double.  Glaze and sprinkle on seeds.  Baked 350F in a convection oven setting till nicely browned..about 20-25 minutes.


 


                                   


                                             The pattern from the biscuit cutter was not very pronouned..


          


                                                   


                                                          I called these my Aussie Sandwiches : )

My convection oven cooks faster and hotter than my regular oven settings.  My convection setting will bake about 25 degrees hotter.  Be sure and read all your directions.  There are different operating types of convection ovens.  I don't have experience baking in a gas oven any more than just a few times.  When baking breads I turn the fan off for the first few minutes of steaming...the circulating air can dry the top faster and turning the fan off helps to bread to rise without setting the crust to fast.  You will just love your convection ovens.  I hardly ever use my bottom non-convection oven.  Making buns or small rolls you want to bake with a hotter oven, 375 to 400F...depending on your oven.

These look great and just what I need for dinner later tonight. Middle son is coming to eat some pork tenderloin and he loves the gravy I make with it so he's always looking for a roll to dip into it, this looks perfect for him.

Thanks Mattie,  These would make attractive and delicious dinner rolls for dipping into your pork gravy.  You might even try making them smaller for dinner rolls by rounding each piece up into a ball without pressing it down and placing them into a pan suited for rolls, glaze and sprinkle on seeds add a sprig or sprinkly of rosemary/ fresh sage leaf for garnish.  Rosemary can also be added in the dough.

I shaped the dough into cloverleaf rolls, baked them in muffin tins & submitted 8 of them into the Wood county Ohio fair. 1st place ribbon, thanks again for posting this!


I was a teenager the last time I paticipated in the fair. My potato bread got a 3rd place ribbon also. Baking bread is great fun.

These would definitely take the prize at a fair!  They are just beautiful, would love to see the recipe in a clover leaf configuration.


I've got 3 entries planned for our state fair in Phoenix.  I have to come up with a cake, a yeasted item and something with C&H Sugar.  I might pass on the sugar entry, but cake and yeasted item here I come!


LOL, any suggestions??

Other's are experienced at fair entries and can give better advice than I can...I have never entered a fair contest other than a school fair contest for best poster drawing...that was a very long time ago 5th grade.  I was thrilled my simple small poster with stick people on their way to the fair won over some hugh elaborate ones...I'd say keep your bakes simple, pretty, with that element of surprise and very tasty.

Sounds like a grand picture, Sylvia!  LOL


I just made this white bread today - from a refence from here to another blog.  In one word, it was just Fantastic!  I was trying out my new Electrolux mixer and needed a recipe with some dough to it.. this one calls for 9 cups and the mixer did OK!  But wow, the bread is just superb:

before I could get a picture & What I thought would be on display at the fair was auctioned at the baked goods sale for a fund raiser a few hours after judging. So now I'll just have to suffer & bake some more for a picture.

Hi Sylvia,

Can you actually buy KA stuff in Oz??

There are great flour options in Australia.. not sure about Tasmania, however (I lived in Victoria).  KA ships.. and they can send some things via international shipping, but not sure you can order flour to be brought in.  To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of KA flour.. it's overpriced and there are better options with more flavor.

You can use a good quality bread flour, locally available to you.  I also use Gold Medal for bread, costs less than KA..which I usually stock up on when on sale at my local store or KAF and free shipping is offered.

Cheers!  Sylvia

We do have an excellent option here, Callington Mill at Oatlands: beautiful fresh flour, stone ground, with excellent flavour. But they only do wheat - including spelt, tho that's twice the price -  and I want to do some sourdough rye.

Best regards,
David

I just layed these bad boys down for final proof, i cant wait to try them out.. i will be uploading a few pics when they are ready

So excited to try something new, i have only made no knead dough up untill now so i dont know how these are going to turn out

 

***Edit

 

 

So i just had my first and i want to say, they really do taste great but i wouldnt call them hamburger rolls. they are amazing rolls that i most definitly will be adding to my list of breads that i want to make again. but they are a little sweet for my taste for a burger. 

I didnt add the potato, and used supermarket instant dry milk instead of the king arthur brand and i topped half with poppy seed and the other half with onion flake that i rehydrated. I should have scaled out the rolls instead of going by eye but it was just for me so i dont mind that they are all a little diffrent size

These are a rich bun.  When you change ingredients, it becomes your own recipe.  Thank you for posting your lovely bake.

This is a great site for learning to bake bread.  A lot of members started out like you did with the NKB.  

Happy Baking and Welcome to TFL!
