Herbed Sandwich Buns

These sandwich buns were so delicious. The dough was made in the bread machine, so they were also very easy. Make sure you don't skip sauteing the onions in butter. It gave these so much flavor. I used these to make Pork 'n' Slaw Sandwiches last night which was wonderful. I also think they would be fantastic with a burger, or just a plain sandwich. I am hooked:-)

Herbed Sandwich Buns

1/4 c. water (70-80*)
1/4 c. warm milk (70-80*)
1 egg
2/3 c. small-curd cottage cheese
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 c. bread flour
2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. dried minced garlic
1/4 tsp. dried basil
1/4 c. finely chopped onion
4 1/2 tsp. butter

In bread machine pan, place the first 12 ingredients in order suggested by the manufacturer. In a small skillet, saute onions in butter until tender; add to bread machine pan. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 Tbsp. water or flour if needed).

When cycle is complete, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into 10 pieces; shape each into a ball. Place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375* for10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

Yields: 10 buns

Tip: Since I cannot usually find a warm enough place for my dough to rise, I usually preheat my oven to about 170*. Once it reaches that temp., I turn it off and place my dough in the oven to rise. It works great!

  1. Those look really yummy, it may be time to get the old bread machine out feels like that time of year anyway! I let my dough rise in the machine...but I have dough only cycle, so the machine heats up enough. Otherwise, my kitchen gets pretty warm...gotta love 1959 construction...I prefer to call it retro!
