Its time for Secret Recipe Club again - I love being part of this fun club! My favorite part of the SRC is assignment day - I love when I get that e-mail in my inbox with the link to the blog that I get to choose my recipe from. I also love that most of my assignments have all come from blogs I have never been to before, it's really a great opportunity to find some fabulous bloggers out there and some delicious recipes. If you are not familiar with exactly how this club works, you can stop by the website and learn all about it - maybe even join in! Basically you are (secretly) assigned a blog to checkout, browse through their recipes, choose one to make and blog about it. It's a lot of fun!
This month I was assigned, My Hobbie Lobbie. I can't begin to tell you how many times I skimmed this recipe index. There are so many amazing recipes that I found and wanted to make. My intention was to make these Cheese Stuffed Whole Wheat Garlic Breadsticks, and I am drooling as I sit here just typing it out. I will definitely be making them in the future! This Chicken Tikka was on my list as well - it sounds delicious! In the end I chose to make these Hamburger Buns because Hubby was making burgers for dinner and we didn't have any buns in the house. I had remembered seeing a recipe for some on the website and figured I would give it a try.
Everyone in the house loved these hamburger buns! Hubby created some fun breakfast sandwiches the next day just so we could eat them again. These will be making a frequent appearance in our house from now on.
recipe from My Hobbie Lobbie via King Arthur Flour and adapted for the bread machine
3 1/2 cups AP flour
3/4 to 1 cup luke warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 large egg
Optional (for Topping)
3 tablespoons of melted butter
Place all ingredients into the bread machine according to the machines instructions. Set on dough cycle.
Once cycle is complete, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 8 even pieces. Shape into a ball, flatten and place on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise until buns double in size, about an hour.
Brush buns with melted butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Placed in a preheated 375 degree oven for 12-18 minutes or until golden.
