Hamburger - Sandwich Buns

Post by Nyssa on Wed May 27, 2009 1:29 pm

Hamburger/Sandwich Buns

Recipe from The Baker's Catalogue collection
[with my own comments]

Dough
1 cup milk
4 tablespoons unsalted butter (1/2 stick), soft
3 cups KA Unbleached All Purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons instant yeast
1 teaspoon dried minced onions (optional, for a mild
onion flavor) [Note: I bump this up to 2 teaspoons OR
substitute 1 1/2 tablespoons of Pizza Dough Flavor]

Topping (optional) [Note: I don't use any topping]
1 egg white beaten with 1 tablespoon water
sesame seeds (or the seeds of your choice)

Warm the milk and butter together just until the
better starts to melt. Place all of the ingredients
into a mixing bowl. Stir to combine, then knead the
dough till it's smooth and elastic, 5 to 10 minutes.
Add a bit of additional flour or water if needed to
create a very soft dough. Place the dough in a lightly
greased bowl, turning to coat all sides, cover it with
lightly greased plastic wrap, and let the dough rise till
it's doubled in bulk, about an hour. (You may also prepare
the dough using a bread machine programmed for Dough or
Manual.)

Turn the dough out onto a lightly greased work surface and
divide it into six pieces. Roll each piece into a smooth
ball and place it in the lightly greased pan. [Note; This
recipe was written by KA for use with their six-hole burger
bun pan. If you don't have one of those, just form six buns
on a greased pan or one lined with parchment paper.] Cover
the pan and let the buns rest for about 10 minutes, then
press each to flatten the tops. Cover and let rise until
puffy, about 1 hour.

Just before baking, brush with the egg white/water mixture
and sprinkle with seeds, if desired.

Bake the buns in a preheated 375 degree F oven for 15 to
20 minutes, or until they're golden brown. Remove from
the oven, and cool on a rack. Yield: 6 buns.

Those sound easy. How long will they keep?

They disappear soon after you take 'em out of the oven! lol

Actually, they freeze well, and will last, covered or in a plastic bag, for a couple or three days. Since the recipe only makes six, it's not too difficult to use them up before they start to get stale.

I should have mentioned that the version with the pizza dough flavor in them are absolutely wonderful with ham or BLT sandwiches. The onion version is great with roast beef too.

Wonder if you could freeze them as dough balls, so they would just have to be defrosted, flattened and baked off.

I don't know why you couldn't. You can buy frozen bread dough. That is what I use to make pepperoni rolls.

I don't think you'd save much time freezing them before baking. You'd have to wait for the balls to thaw, get to room temperature, then do their second rise before baking. Several hours of time!

Instead, try putting the kneaded dough in the fridge in a bowl covered with plastic wrap. Then you'd only have to put the bowl out to come to room temperature and wait for the dough to rise, much faster than thawing. Then you'd form the buns, do the second rise, and bake. This way you'd be able to do the messy part of mixing and kneading ahead of time, then retard the dough until you're ready to continue with the recipe.

I freeze bread dough and defrost it in the microwave on a low setting. I do it for a minute, then check it, then 30 second intervals. As long as the dough doesn't get hot spots it's fine and doesn't kill the yeast.

I freeze bread dough too, but I don't put it in the microwave. I usually just set it out in the morning, and when I am ready it is usually ready

I let my sit out on the counter to thaw. It doesn't take long for it to warm up. If you don't want to do the microwave or wait, heat your oven and turn off the heat. While the oven is still warm set your pan of dough in there to thaw. Just keep an eye on it so that it doesn't get too warm and starts to rise out of the pan. Yes, I have forgotten mine a time or two and it has over flowed the pan.

I may use all these ways, as I have done a variety in the past with other doughs. Just glad it freezes well, as I'd rather freeze dough than bread.
