We just had a couple of good burgers from a large chain BURGERATORIUM. They were very decent and We will return to chow down again. I can do better. Fast Food is not in my vocabulary. I will make my own hamburger buns, and capture my protein with my bare hands. I will listen to Ted Nugent full blast.. This might explain things. I did have some help from the "Great White Hunter", with the Buffalo meat. The only thing I really killed was the punch line.

Hamburger Buns
  1. 1 cup whole mik
  2. 1/4 cup warm water
  3. 1 tablespoon dry yeast
  4. 1 large egg
  5. 1/2 tablespoon salt
  6. 2 cups of flour
  7. 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  8. 1 egg for wash
  9. 1/4 cup of sugar

Heat the milk to 120 degrees and add sugar. Heat up water to 110 degrees and add yeast. When yeast is bubbly add to milk and sugar mixture.. Add the rest of the ingredients and knead for 10 minutes.Add more flour if too sticky. Let rise for two hours or until doubled. Punch out and roll to desired shapes. Let rise for another hour. Take egg wash and bathe rolls with a light coating. Bake at 375 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Let rest for at least 15 minutes.

We made some Buffalo burgers with cheese. The condiments included ,Bacon Jam, Ketchup, Mayonnaise, etc. If you start out with a good Hamburger Bun, you have started on the road to the Ultimate Hamburger.

How fantastic.
I am, at the moment, making hot dog buns! Miniature hot dog buns for a secret, diabolical project.
Happy 4th.

Wow, thanks for the recipe for hamburger buns! I'm going to try that as commercial ones are really just air and dust.
