These buns make the best sandwiches. We filled our sandwiches with cracked pepper turkey, tomato, avacado, cheddar cheese, mayo and mustard. They also make great hamburger buns.
What you will need:
6 tbsp. warm milk
2 cups warm water
2 tbsp. instant yeast
5 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. salt
2 large eggs
6 cups bread flour
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
5 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
1 large egg beaten with 1 tbsp. water, for egg wash
Making The Buns:
Mix briefly to combine the milk, water, yeast, sugar, salt and egg. Add the flours to the bowl, and mix until blended in. Mix in the butter. Knead with a dough hook on low speed for about 6-8 minutes. The dough will be sticky, but you want to avoid adding too much extra flour which will create tough buns.
Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, 1-2 hours.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a dough scraper, divide the dough into 16 equal parts. Gently roll each portion of dough into a ball and place on the baking sheet, 2-3 inches apart. Cover loosely with lightly oiled plastic wrap and let rise again, 1-2 hours, until doubled.
Brush egg white on top of buns and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
