Homemade Hamburger Buns

A few nights ago, I had sloppy joes on the menu, and no hamburger buns in the pantry!  I live too far away from town to drive to the store just for buns, plus I love making things from scratch (it's usually cheaper too!), so I found this recipe over on Taste of Home's website for homemade buns, and whipped them up.  They were great!  Here's the recipe!

  • 2 Tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 c. plus 2 Tbsp warm water
  • 1/3 c. oil
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 - 3 1/2 c. flour
  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water
  • Add oil and sugar, let rest for 5 minutes
  • Add egg, salt, and flour
    • start with 3 c. flour, add more if needed to form soft dough
  • Place dough on floured surface and knead for 3-5 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic
  • Divide into 12 pieces and shape each piece into a ball
  • Place a few inches apart on greased baking sheets
  • Cover with clean towel and let rest for 10 minutes
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown
  • Cool and slice in half to use for a bun, like on this sloppy joe.  :)
