Bread Machine Burger Buns and Homemade Chicken Salad

Things are just are a bit crazy in the world right now. Keeping ourselves safe and healthy is a number one priority. I thought I would share a recipe that is easy to make this way you won’t have to run out to the store right now. Whether you like hamburgers, sandwiches like some homemade Chicken Salad (recipe is below) or perhaps some Sloppy Joe’s these buns are perfect. You can choose to make them with a seeded or plain top that’s completely up to you. So get out that Bread Machine as this is the perfect time to use it.

Bread Machine Burger Buns

Remember to put the Ingredients in the order that is recommended for your bread machine. I have a Zojirushi Virtuoso and this is the order I use.

Ingredients

• 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water (110° to 115°)
• 1/3 cup vegetable oil
• 1 egg, beaten
• 3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 2 tablespoons active dry yeast (make sure it’s fresh)

Directions

Add the ingredients in the order that is recommended for your bread machine. This will then be mixed & rise on your dough setting.

Once the dough has risen, preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Now take the dough out of the bread machine pan and turn out on to a lightly floured cutting board. I like to put the rolled dough balls on baking sheet covered with and a piece of parchment paper but you can use a greased baking sheet. I use a kitchen scale and depending on how large I want the buns to be I weigh them between 2.5 to 3.5 ounces each, this will keep the buns all the same size.

To assemble just cut off a piece of dough, weigh and form into a ball, place on the baking sheet and pat the top down lightly. Once you have all the dough balls made cover with a linen towel and let rest for 10 minutes.

Seeded tops: With a beaten egg brush the tops of the buns and sprinkle with your favorite seeds. This step is optional.

Put the baking sheet of dough balls into the heated oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or adjust an extra minute or two if you are making larger buns. Once they are nice and golden remove from the oven.

I hope you will try making these delicious sandwich buns.
