... I'd like to develop a favorite roll recipe.
Betty Crocker has always been my go-to recipe for dinner rolls, up until recently.

I have a fairly new recipe that I like really well. It's called "40-minute hamburger buns": https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/40- ... ger-buns/
It truly does take 40 minutes start-to-finish, and we like them as burger/sandwich buns or as rolls, or shaped long for hot dogs.
Regardless of Hugo's note....


I made this today with some not from recipe/scratch butternut/acorn squash soup.

The rolls turned out very, very well. I may consider adding a little butter on top next time as they bake. I'm not sure they would wholly hold up for actual bun usage but are great with the soup (and a touch of healthy margarine spread across the roll halves).
The words "healthy" and "margarine" do not go in the same sentence together!

Irish butter all the way.

I use butter in my cooking--- for a spread we have some kind of olive oil something margarine something. It's ok because I don't use a spread that often.

Margarine is the debil’s butter.

That's one that I do pretty well. I was taught by an old school New Yorker who had refined her recipe to an artform. I usually do a sour cream topping on it.

Boom!!! I do a sour cream with a bit of sugar and vanilla topping. Very basic and still the best we've had.

I baked a big red onion for dinner tonight. Easy. Put it in the oven at 350. Took about 1:20 minutes since it was a big onion. Let it cool, cut off the bottom, squeeze out the soft cooked inside and throw away the leather skin layers. Put some butter and a little salt on it and it's is delicious. Seriously. I ate mine with baked marinated chicken breast and some nuked brussel sprouts.

Bread loaves this morning, using BellaRise Gold instant yeast. Was basically a pretzel recipe but without the egg wash and Xtra salt.
Ate some this morning, fresh, with butter and honey, and used some for turkey and cheese sandwiches for lunch.
I like this instant yeast, easy and works well.

Another batch of Chelsea Buns made and devoured this weekend. This time I made it with 1/4 bread flour and 3/4 general purpose (instead of all general purpose). It turned out much nicer, not ad dense.

When I was a teen, my mother didn't bake, my step dad didn't bake, so I did some...baked cookies and cakes and did some cooking for the family, even baked in 4H. Then when I was dating my wife, I made her a birthday cake from scratch...then I discovered what a good cook and baker she is and I quit...she really enjoys it and I just did it so I could have baked goods...so now I get them and she does the baking. Sometimes I see something that sounds good, and I give it a shot...beer bread sounds good...I may dust off my oven mits and see what I can come up with...

I can relate to doing the baking to have sweets and breads. My ex did baking so I stepped away/aside. After being on my own and having the kids come I just determined that I wasn't sure what homemade goods they may or may not have so I gave myself a Christmas present of a stand mixer and started into the baking.

My wife likes that I bake and she likes to clean so she enjoys the roasts, pot pies, cookies, pies, etc. that I come up with and make upon request. Good cooking may have been a positive factor in our courtship.
