Beautiful Burger Buns
For our little family gathering, I made pulled pork and naturally the needed sandwich rolls. These Beautiful Burger Buns have received a lot of acclaim with the nice folks who frequent the King Arthur Flour site.
They certainly are beautiful; just look at those golden globes! Plus they're easy enough for a beginner bread maker to tackle and have great success. The first time I made these, I followed the directions and made eight huge rolls. Since then, I make ten, which is a much better size for us.
Alas, they just aren't my favorite for either burgers or pulled pork. I think they are a little too fluffy and tender as the rolls just didn't hold up that well. They would, however, be perfect for chicken salad, tuna salad, sliced roast beef or turkey, etc. If I were going to make a tray of chicken salad sandwiches, for example, though, I think I'd make the rolls even smaller.
These rolls are easy, delicious, beautiful. I'll make them again.
