"My entire family absolutely loves these buns with sloppy joes. They hold their shape and don't fall apart when combined with the 'juiciness' of the sloppy joes. I'm not going to buy sandwich buns again. They couldn't compare to these."

  1. Combine milk, sugar, butter, and salt in small saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until butter melts. Remove from heat and allow to cool to lukewarm.
  2. Combine 1 cup bread flour, egg, yeast, and milk mixture in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook; beat at lowest speed for 1 minute. Let rest 5 to 10 minutes. Add 2 3/4 cups bread flour; mix at next-to-lowest speed until dough cleans sides of bowl and sticks to dough hook, about 2 minutes.
  3. Place in lightly greased bowl, cover, and let raise in warm place until doubled (about 1 hour).
  4. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface, punch down to get out air bubbles, and shape into rolls, placing rolls onto 2 lightly greased baking sheets. Cover with waxed paper and let rise for another 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  5. Brush tops of buns with melted butter. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  7. Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes.

This made a great foundation for pulled pork sandwiches. Was disappointed that there were not any leftover. The family ate every one!

Tried it tonight with bbq pulled pork and it was amazing! I made them so they were the size of hamburger buns, made 6. I did do 2 tsp of yeast as opposed to 1 1/4 tsp. They rose beautifully and ...

This was a great recipe, and I think it can be adapted perfectly for crescent rolls at Thanksgiving.

I halved the sugar and they were still a bit sweet for sandwich buns. Would make perfect dinner rolls, though. I also omitted step 5, and they came out super soft, fluffy and delicious.

I will preface this by saying I am new at breads, and new at my stand mixer. I would call this a rather "involved" recipe that didn't turn out how I expected it to. I was looking for "lighter th...

These turned out so well! The only thing I changed was to use half whole wheat flour. I made 12 buns and they're the perfect size for sandwiches. I used them for burgers last night and they were...
