Oh, not perfect. No buns. And I have a weird husband who doesn't like to eat a burger without a bun. I know, I know... he's just not normal :) So what did I do? I made hamburger buns! I have been wanting to try out this recipe for quite some time. It's been printed out and in my recipe book for months! And I don't know why I didn't try it sooner. It was sooo easy. I used my kitchen aid mixer to help with some of the kneading so I didn't even have to do any hard work.

- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 packet dry yeast
- 4 1/2 cups flour (separate 1 3/4 cups out)
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
Once everything is mixed well and dough has pulled together knead in mixer for about 8 minutes. Remove dough from bowl and divide into 12 equal pieces. Roll into balls and flatten a bit. Place on a greased baking tray. Cover & let rise for 30-35 minutes.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool and enjoy!
I served some teriyaki burgers on my buns and boy were they good!
