Dinner Buns

When you make a big pot of soup it’s nice to have some fresh baked buns out of the oven to go along with it.  The smell of fresh baked bread is welcome any time of the year, especially in the Fall and Winter seasons.

Dinner Rolls

1 cup warm milk
3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp instant active yeast
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 large eggs
2 ¾ cups bread flour

In a small saucepan, heat the milk and butter (until melted).  Stir in the sugar and yeast.  Allow to sit for 10 minutes.  In your mixer, gently mix the egg and salt with the dough hook.  Blend in the milk mixture.  Gradually add in the flour until it forms a ball.  Remove from machine and cover the bowl for one hour.  Divide out the dough and roll into 12 balls.  Place in a greased 9 x 13 pan.  Allow to rise.  Bake at 350° for 20 minutes.  Spread 1 tbsp of softened butter on top of the hot buns.
