Home Made Hamburger Buns

Practice!!!  Here is my second try at the homemade hamburger buns.  This is a great recipe, the problem I had with the first batch was the wrong sized pan..

Here's what you need:
1 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Butter
2 1/4 Teaspoon Yeast
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Egg
4 Cups Flour
1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour

Here's what you do:
Heat Milk until film forms.  Add Sugar, Salt and Butter, mix until everything dissolves and cools.  Heat Water until warm add Yeast and dissolve.
When Milk mixture cools to room temp add Yeast and Water mixture.  Beat in Egg and start adding flour 1/2 cup at a time.  Turn Dough onto a board and need until smooth.  Put dough into a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap until doubled.
Remove from bowl and divide dough into 12 even pieces.  Roll into smooth balls and place on lightly greased baking sheet.  Flatten slightly.  Cover and let rise until almost doubled.  Buns will spread.  If you want a thicker bun crowd buns in a smaller pan.
Combine 1 egg white with a teaspoon of water, mix well.  Brush mixture on top of buns and add poppy seeds, sesame seeds etc.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
These buns will hold up under your juiciest burger!
