[source] Eventually, sure...but not now! Now, I'm talking about THIS kind of bun: Wheat Yeast Roll recipe from Allrecipes.com: Whole Wheat and Flax Rolls Ingredients * 2 packets dry yeast * 1/3 c. warm water (no more than 110 degrees) * 1 c. milk * 3 Tbsp. white sugar * 1 tsp. salt * 2 1/2 c. whole wheat flour * 1/2 c. white flour (unbleached if possible) * 1/4 c. ground flaxseeds * 1 Tbsp. butter or oil Directions Add the warm water to the bowl of your mixer (or a large mixing bowl). Sprinkle the yeast over, and allow to bloom for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the milk in a pan just until it bubbles (or in the microwave for about 1 minute). Stir in salt, sugar, and butter. Mix well until butter melts, then allow the mixture to cool. Add this mixture to the yeast and water and stir well. Add the flour and knead well until dough is smooth, about 8 minutes. Place in an oiled bowl and cover. Allow to rise until doubled, about an hour. Punch down the dough, then divide into 8-12 small balls, depending on how large you want them. Allow to rise again for about 40 minutes.
What did I serve on my rolls? Well, I had planned on a burger night this week, and originally planned on either beef or bison. But, plans change when a super-sized can of black beans are found in the cupboard! I have finally mastered the art of the black bean burger... this is QUITE an accomplishment! I've made dozens of batches of them, and while good, they haven't been perfect, but I've got it now!
What were my desired toppings? Lucky for me, the lovely Brita at Mezzetta sent me some samples of their wonderful products (for free, not getting paid for this review, ok FTC?) and I needed to use some of them today! I placed my black bean burger on a homemade bun, topped it first with some Mezzetta roasted red peppers, then some low-fat Italian cheese, and then Mezzetta pesto. Um, yeah, this was amazing. Mezzetta! I also had some Low & Slow sweet potatoes on the side. I used to make my sweet potatoes like this waaaay back when, and thanks to Ashley, I remembered the amazing method. I was sad when they were gone.
