Hamburger Buns

Today was the first day we decided to fire up our barbecue for the season. We grilled veal and black bean burgers and ate them with these scrumptious buns.... and some Heartbeat Hot Sauce! 


1 cup warm water
1 tbsp sugar
2 1/4 tsp yeast
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp Brule Creek Farms Canola Oil
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
2 cups Partially Sifted Flour (plus extra for dusting)
1 tbsp melted butter
sesame seeds

In a large bowl, add the water, sugar and yeast. Let this rest for about 10 minutes so it foams. 

Add in the milk, salt and oil. Add in the flour one cup at a time until the mixture is smooth. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes.

Put it in a covered bowl and allow it to rise until doubled - 1-2 hours depending on the temperature. Punch down the dough and split it into 12 pieces. 

On a parchment lined baking sheet, place the balls of dough and cover. Allow them to rise for another 45 minutes. 

Preheat the oven to 425F. Sprinkle the buns with sesame seeds and melted butter. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Allow them to cool before letting them become a vehicle for delicious, delicious barbecue!
