We love these buns and we decided yesterday that I don’t make them nearly enough. I would think they will freeze nicely so I will make a couple of batches and throw them in the freezer. The ones I made yesterday I cut with a smaller biscuit cutter since we were having soup and I wanted small BBQ sandwiches to go with it. For hamburgers, cut them with the size stated in the recipe.
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 3/4 cups bread flour
1 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
In bread machine pan, place the first seven ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed).
When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and punch down. Divide dough in half. Roll each portion to 3/4-in. thickness; cut with a 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter.
Place on lightly greased baking sheets. Brush tops with melted butter. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
Makes 12-18 buns depending on how big you cut them.
