  • Total: 1 hour 30 Minutes
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package instant yeast
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 egg
  1. In a small saucepan, heat milk, water and butter until very warm, 120 degrees F (50 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together 1 3/4 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Mix milk mixture into flour mixture, and then mix in egg. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.
  3. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Shape into smooth balls, and place on a greased baking sheet. Flatten slightly. Cover, and let rise for 30 to 35 minutes.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. For Hot Dog Buns: Shape each piece into a 6x4 inch rectangle. Starting with the longer side, roll up tightly, and pinch edges and ends to seal. Let rise about 20 to 25 minutes. Bake as above. These buns are pretty big. I usually make 16 instead of 12.

My family ate the entire 16 hot dog buns in ONE day! They were soft, delicious and just the right size for the kids. My husband said he would love them without hot dogs, and a sweet glaze, like a doughnut. I now need to make another batch for tonight!!

I dumped all of the ingredients into my breakmaker. 4.5 cups of flour pretty much maxed it out...but eventually a nice dough was made. When all was said and done, everyone said these were the best burger/sandwich rolls they've ever had!! It made enough for dinner, then lunch, and even a few breakfast sandwiches. Toasted them and put on fried egg, cheese, and Canadian bacon. Awesome! Thanks for the recipe.
