The Ultimate Sandwich Bun



1 cup 

Warm Milk

1 pkg

Instant Yeast (or 2-1/4 tsp)

2 Tbsp

Granulated Sugar

1 tsp


3 Tbsp

Butter, Softened*


Large Egg, room temperature**

3-4 c

All Purpose Flour


Egg White

1 Tbsp

Cold Water


  1. In large stand mixer combine 3 cups flour, yeast, sugar, salt, milk, butter, and egg. Knead on low until a smooth dough ball forms, adding more flour, 1/4 cup at a time to achieve desired texture. Your dough should be tacky, but not sticky.
  2. Transfer dough to a lightly greased mixing bowl, cover with a towel and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
  3. Punch dough down and allow to rest 5 minutes.
  4. Divide dough into 4 pieces. Form each section into a small “loaf” about 8 inches long.
  5. Place each roll onto a baking sheet lined with parchment.
  6. Mix together egg white with 1 Tbsp cold water. Brush each roll with egg white, sprinkle with sesame seeds or any topping of your choosing. Cut  3 or 4 1/8 inch deep slits in each roll. Lightly cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise 30 to 45 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 375o F. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool 10 minutes, transfer to wire rack to cool completely



*Cube butter and add to pan with milk, stir occasionally. When the butter begins to melt, the milk should be at the right temperature (between 105 and 120o F)

**To quickly bring the egg to room temperature, place it in a cup of hot tap water for about 10-15 minutes.
