Here is the recipe:
- 2 cups warm milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/4 cup warm water
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 2 (.25 ounce) packages instant yeast
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 6 cups all-purpose flour, or as needed
- In a large bowl, stir together the milk, butter, warm water, sugar and yeast. Let stand for about 5 minutes.
- Mix in the salt, and gradually stir in the flour until you have a soft dough. Divide into 25 pieces, and form into balls. Place on baking sheets so they are 2 to 3 inches apart. Let rise for 20 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Bake the rolls for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool slightly, then split them in half horizontally to fill with your favorite burgers.
We paired the burgers with home made raw fries seasoned with kosher salt. Those were made by using the slicer side of the 4-sided grater and frying in 375 degree canola oil for about three minutes and then set them on a cookie cooling rack to let drain. That meal would have cost us $30 easily at a gourmet burger joint in town. Instead, we used things we always keep in the house and had left overs for lunch the next day!
