I just got a link to this in my email from Back Yard Chickens Newsletter. It was sent in or posted by Sue Edwards and I'm posting it here in full because I think it sounds wonderful.
A neighbor posted this recipe on our church’s e-bulletin board and I copied it. I made it today thinking the whole time…there is no way this is going to work. I used 1/2 milk and 1/2 water and I used my Kitchen Aid mixer to knead the rolls for 5 minutes then cut them into 16 pieces instead of 12, shaped…rested the 10 minutes and bakes 10 minutes.
Color me in shock and lying on the floor. These are some of the best rolls I’ve ever made. I can’t wait to try them out as hamburger buns.
40 Minute Hamburger Buns or Rolls
By Sue Edwards
***(Note: By Sue Edwards)*** Here on our ranch, I cook for three men besides by family and they all love hamburgers. These fluffy yet hearty buns are just right for their big appetites. I also serve the buns plain with a meal.
