Easy 40 minute hamburger buns

I need to update this at least once a month. It's not that I'm not cooking, it's that I'm not taking the time to photograph or record the recipes. And I've posted this one before, but as part of a different recipe by a more obscure title, so I thought I'd give it a go again, especially since summer and burgers just seem to go together. We ate ours dagwood style tonight, stacking burgers with onions, guacamole, and the first tomato from our garden.

Forty Minute Hamburger Buns

Yield: 10-12 buns
Prep Time: 20 min
Cooking Time: 10 min.
Inactive Prep Time: 10 min.
Difficulty: Easy

  ● 2 tbsp. active dry yeast
  ● 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water , (110° to 115°)
  ● 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  ● 1/4 cup sugar
  ● 1 egg
  ● 1 tsp. salt
  ● 3-3.5 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl (I don't even use my stand mixer for this one), dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add oil, egg, salt and mix, then and enough flour to form a soft dough.
Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 3-5 minutes, adding flour as needed. Do not let rise. Divide into 8 pieces, shape into balls. Place on a greased baking sheet, cover, and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Press each ball down gently before putting in oven. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks for cooling.

Note: I have made this recipe without the egg on occasion (once by accident, and once because there were no eggs in the house) and it turns out fine as long as you don't add too much flour.
