Delicious dinner rolls, hamburger buns, hot dog or sandwich buns, one dough for 3 types of buns!
This is a savory recipe but the dough can be sweetened with 2 additional tablespoons sugar and served as sweet brioche.
These dinner rolls require two rises.
Here I made rolls, but if you want buns, just flatten their tops and do not crowd them into the baking pan.
1/3 cup (75 g.) butter
1 cup (235 ml) milk
2 tbsp. (20 g.) sugar
1 tbsp. (10 g.) active dry yeast
4 cups (565 g.) all-purpose flour
2 tsp (11 g.) salt
2 large eggs (about 100g)
Toppings: Sesame seeds, poppy seeds, wheat germs, etc.
In a sauce pan or into your micro-wave oven, heat the milk and butter, ideally the temperature should be below 120°F (48°C) before adding the yeast, if necessary let cool
Place milk/butter mixture into stand mixer bowl; add the yeast, sprinkle with sugar, mix with a spoon to dissolve the yeast and let the yeast proof for 10 minutes or until the mixture starts to foam
Add the flour and salt, on low speed and with the dough hook attachment, mix until the flour and the liquids come together
Add the eggs, one at a time, continuing to knead then increase mixer speed to medium low and continue kneading until a smooth elastic dough ball forms (about 7 minutes). Adjust flour and water as need
Grease/oil a bowl with olive oil
Finish kneading the dough by hand and form a ball
Place dough into the bowl, turning it over so that it is oiled on top and bottom, cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place until dough has doubled in size, about 1 hour
Remove dough onto a floured surface; press down to deflate; divide into 10 portions
Roll portions into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with a greased aluminum foil
Cover dough with a piece of plastic wrap and allow to double in size in a warm place, for about 30 minutes
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C)
Remove plastic wrap, lightly brush with an egg wash. Add toppings of your choice
Into the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until it is golden and sounds hollow inside when tapped on the bottom
Remove from oven and place on cooling rack to cool
