Homemade Slider Buns

Is it necessary to make your own buns for sliders?  No.  But is it absolutely delicious, YES!!!  These buns are soft, tender, and light as air.  They had just a hint of sweetness and they had a full wheat flavor.  The buns made a excellent accompaniment to the black bean sliders, but they are delicious on their  own.

Making bread is really satisfying and peaceful, it’s something I wish I would make more often!  These buns were easy to make, they just take a little bit of time and some planning.

Homemade Slider Buns
Adapted from Annie Eats
Yield – 16 slider buns

3 tablespoons milk
1 cup water
2 teaspoons instant yeast
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 egg + 1 egg for an egg wash
2 2/3 cups flour
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
2 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
coarse salt for topping

  1. Heat the milk and water in the microwave for about 30 seconds until warm, but not hot.
  2. Add the milk/water, yeast, sugar, salt, and one egg to the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment.  Mix until well combined.

  4. Switch to the dough hook and beat on low speed for 7 minutes.
  5. Place the dough in a large oiled bowl, cover, and place in a warm spot to let proof and double in size.  This takes about an hour.

    Homemade bread is a frontier that I am yet to challenge, me being yeast-er-phobic and all. Perhaps this summer!
