I found this recipe at Taste of Home and my family loves it when I make homemade buns for our pulled pork sandwiches. Tonight I made Balsamic Honey Pulled Pork Sliders from Six Sisters' Stuff so I figured I should make these again and get them posted this time.
2 T yeast
2 cups warm water
4 T Sugar
1 T salt
1/3 c butter or margarine, melted
6 - 6 1/2 cups flour
1 egg white
2 T cold water
Dehydrated onions, poppy seeds or sesame seeds
In the bowl of your stand mixer, or in a large bowl, mix yeast with 1/2 c warm water and 1 T of the sugar. Let stand until bubbly (3-5 minutes). Add the butter, salt, the other 1 1/2 cups water and the other 3 T sugar. Mix well. Start adding flour one cup at a time on speed 2 (or by hand). When dough is well combined let the mixer (or your hands) knead the dough 2-3 minutes longer. Place in a greased bowl and cover with towel. Let dough raise for 1 hour.
Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 16 pieces. Shape each into a ball. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Beat egg white and cold water; brush over rolls. Sprinkle with topping of your choice. Cut a slit into the top of each roll. Bake at 400* for 17-20 minutes
Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
