Homemade Hamburger Buns

Another Pinterest recipe for today... It's from this pin and it's for homemade hamburger buns.  The selling point for these buns is that they only take 40 minutes to make, which is amazing.  So, I gave it a try.

Take two tablespoons of yeast and dissolve in a cup plus two tablespoons of warm water.  Add 1/3 cup of vegetable oil and 1/4 cup of sugar and let it stand for five minutes.

If you look at this picture long enough, you'll see the image of two penguins holding maracas in the bubbles.

I have lost my mind.

Next, add one egg, a teaspoon of salt and at least three cups of flour.  The original recipe called for anywhere from three cups to three and a half cups... I ended up using way more than four cups to get a good dough, so play it by ear.

Knead it on a floured surface for about five minutes.  Divide it into 12 pieces and roll into balls.  Put them on a greased baking sheet and cover with a towel; let them rest someplace warm for ten minutes or so.

Bake them at 425 degrees for 8 to 12 minutes.  And behold:

Yeah... they pretty much look like rolls.  But, when you cut them in half and put a burger on them, they are not half-bad... in fact, I'd say they were all good.  They really were quick to make, which is great and my crowd of burger eaters did finish them all, even though there was a bag of store-bought burger buns just in case.  So this was a success, but I'll only make them for special occasions I think... Since they're so special.
