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 : )

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.
