I’ve posted this recipe before, but I wanted to share it again because 1) I have a lot more readers now (so this is new to most of you) and 2) these sandwich buns are so good. If you don’t have a bread machine, I highly recommend one! I purchased this Panasonic Bread Maker when we first decided to eliminate processed foods in January and it’s been wonderful. I’ve consistently used it to make dough every 2-3 days ever since the UPS man delivered it! I make our standard loaf of sandwich bread, cinnamon raisin bread, pizza dough for homemade pizza and calzones, French bread, these awesome sandwich buns, and more!
Honey Whole Wheat Sandwich Buns:
- 3 3/4 cups white whole wheat flour
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1 1/4 cups warm milk (I use organic whole)
- 1 egg, beaten (local, pastured is ideal)
- 2 T organic butter
- 1/4 cup honey (local, raw is ideal)
- 1 1/4 tsp fast rise yeast
Place all the ingredients in the bread machine in the recommended order. Select whole wheat, dough cycle and press start. When the timer beeps (mine takes 3 hrs 15 min), roll the dough out to about 1/2″ thick. Cut out circles with a biscuit cutter (I use these) and place on parchment-lined cookie sheets (or use a silicone baking mat). Cover and let rise about 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 and bake for about 10 minutes. Let cool. This recipe makes 14 large-ish buns. Whatever we don’t eat right away, we freeze. They thaw out great! (Note: I typically toast my buns for sandwiches.) We use them for hamburger buns, sandwich buns, and sometimes we eat them plain with butter and honey…yum!
Step by step process…
I also use this same recipe to make hot dog buns, though they don’t look quite as pretty since I have yet to find a ‘hot dog shaped cutter.’ 🙂
These are so much better than store-bought! Not only are they free of the artificial additives and preservatives you’ll find in the sandwich buns at the grocery store, but they also taste so much better! Next time you need sandwich buns for hamburgers, hot dogs, turkey, tuna/chicken salad, egg salad, etc., you must try this recipe. You won’t be disappointed!
