Handmade Hamburger Buns - Instructions

Place potato in a medium saucepan. Cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to
simmer and cook for 20 minutes or until potato is tender. Drain, reserving liquid. Add
hot tap water to reserved liquid to measure 1 cup. Cool to 105 F. Mash the potato and
set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk together 4 cups flour, sugar, salt and yeast. Add
potato water, mashed potato, milk and butter all at once to flour mixture. Beat on
medium speed until smooth. Using the dough hooks, knead in just enough additional
flour one cup at a time, to form a smooth, soft, elastic dough. Transfer to a large,
greased bowl. Turn dough over to grease all sides. Cover, place in a warm, draft free
place and let rise for 35 minutes or until doubled in bulk.

Grease and lightly flour 2 baking sheets. Punch dough down. Divide dough into 24

mixture and sprinkle lightly with sesame seeds.

Preheat oven to 400 F. Bake rolls for15 minutes. Remove from baking sheets and cool on
wire rack. Slice with a serrated knife to serve with hamburgers.

Makes 2 dozen rolls.
