Hamburger buns

Hamburger or Hot Dog Buns

-1 1/4 cup milk
-1 large egg
-6 Tablespoons vegetable oil
-3 Tablespoon sugar, or honey
-4 cups all-purpose flour
-1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vital wheat gluten (if you don't have this, leave out)
-2 teaspoons salt
-2 1/2 teaspoons yeast

-Place all ingredients in bread machine pan according to manufacturer’s instructions. Program for “dough.” When done, divide into 12 equal portions. *Form each portion into a flat round for hamburger buns or a thin loaf for hot dog buns. Cover loosely with a clean kitchen towel and allow to rest for 30 minutes. Pre-heat oven to 375°F. Bake for 15-22 minutes, until lightly browned.

My oven runs hot, so it usually takes less than 15 minutes for these to bake.

*Note* In order to get the Kaiser shape that I did my buns in, you need to do your dough like a pretzel, tucking the sides in, and then let rise and bake as normal. If you need help on this, just let me know :)
