  1. In a small saucepan, heat milk, water and butter until very warm, 120 degrees F (50 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together 1 3/4 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Mix milk mixture into flour mixture, and then mix in egg. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.
  3. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Shape into smooth balls, and place on a greased baking sheet. Flatten slightly. Cover, and let rise for 30 to 35 minutes.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. For Hot Dog Buns: Shape each piece into a 6x4 inch rectangle. Starting with the longer side, roll up tightly, and pinch edges and ends to seal. Let rise about 20 to 25 minutes. Bake as above. These buns are pretty big. I usually make 16 instead of 12.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Instant yeast conversion: 1 package instant yeast is about 1 Tablespoon; to substitute regular dry yeast use 1 tbsp + 1 tsp (4 tsp total). Let it proof before adding to recipe, and use 2 rises....

These are SO soft and SO fluffy! ***TIP:*** after kneading dough just plop all of it in a greased bowl, cover and let rise for an hour in a cool oven (don't turn the oven on). The yeast creates ...

Awesome recipe! I just threw everything in the bread machine and had perfect hot dog buns! Wont be buying store-bought anymore...

Excellent. I used my bread machine dough cycle and they came out perfect. I let the dough rise for an hour before shaping the buns. Then I let the buns rise for 35 minutes. The best!!

Overall this recipe was good, not as good as some of the reviews I read prior to making them though. The rolls were a little heavier then I was originally looking for. I did find as other revi...

These were easy to make, but a little on the dense side. I would try the recipe again with a little more yeast.

Okay, I admit, it could have been me, but these turned out really bad. It made 8 hamburger buns that were flat and dense. I was so excited to find this recipe but I guess I will have to keep sea...
