Don’t you just love fresh baked bread?

When I learned how to bake bread and buns, a whole new world opened up for me.   It’s one of the most comforting processes, smells and tastes.  I love spending time making, kneading and shaping dough.  The reward is so totally worth the time spent.

This recipe, however, is a quicker bread recipe.  You don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen to have freshly baked buns for dinner.  This recipe is a lighter type of brioche bun, in that I use only a few tablespoons of butter and not much sweetener.  The result is a light and fluffy bun.  Sometimes I let it rise twice, if I have the time, but most of the time I just mix it up and then shape it, let it rise for 40 minutes or so and then bake for 15-20 minutes.

I use these buns for my Turkey Burger recipe, which is a leaner burger patty.  I have not had it with a beef burger, but I have to smile every time I think of it because of Anthony Bourdain’s write up in his newest cookbook Appetites, about the right and wrong bun for burgers (Potato=right, Brioche=wrong, according to him) .  If I remember correctly, I think he even named the brioche hamburger bun a crime against food elsewhere. (Just funny that he can have such a strong opinion, they’re just buns haha) I don’t care how people serve up in their own homes. I’d serve a burger on them.

How would  you serve them?

Lighter brioche style bun, only one rise time if you prefer.

Course: Bread
Servings: 8 buns
Author: Jacqueline Piper
Ingredients
  • 2/3 cups milk warm
  • 1 1/2 tbsp instant yeast
  • 2 tbsp honey or sugar
  • 4 tbsp butter , melted
  • 2 large eggs , at room temperature
  • 450-500 grams all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 large egg (for egg wash)
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk together warm milk, melted butter, sugar or honey and yeast.  Add eggs and whisk well.

  2. Add flour and salt.  Use dough hook, and mix on medium-low for 8 to 10 minutes or so.  Dough should come away from the side mostly, ba bit sticky, soft and smooth.

  3. Optional: Let rise until doubled in size, covered with a damp, warm towel, then punch down and move on to next step.

  4. Divide into 8 equal pieces (or 10 for sliders size).  Shape each dough ball, by cupping your hand on top of it on the counter, and circling your hand over top of it, rolling the dough ball around gently until the top is smooth.  Pinch together the bottom if needed and set on lined baking tray.

  5. Let rise in a warm spot until almost doubled, about 30-45 minutes or so (depending on warmth in your kitchen).

  6. Preheat oven to 400 F

  7. Whisk an egg with a teaspoon of water and brush over top of the buns.  Bake for 15 - 20 minutes, until golden brown and completely cooked.

OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Pipercooks.com

These cookies are really, really good.  You should make them.  Even though they have raisins in them.   I am *not* a fan of raisins, especially in cookies, but I developed this recipe for my husband.  Oatmeal Raisin are his favorite cookies (and quite possibly my least favorite).  But even I love these cookies.  Do you like raisins in your cookies?  What’s your favorite cookie?

 

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Pipercooks.com

This recipe makes 4 dozen cookies and I use a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop them onto the cookie sheet.  For the photos above I had pressed the scoops into a heart cookie cutter for a Valentine’s Day gift.   When the cookies come out of the oven, after around 10 minutes, they will still look a bit under done.  Just a bit.  This way, they stay nice and chewy once they cool.  I let them cool on the sheet for a few minutes and then move them to a wire rack.  And I use two sheets so I can always have a batch in the oven, makes it quicker to get through all those cookies!

If four dozen seems a bit much to you, I’ll let you know that they freeze wonderfully. Enjoy!

Potato Pancake with mozzarella and onions

Potato Pancake with mozzarella and onions. Perfect weeknight meal, topped with a fried egg and my Spicy Greek Yogurt Dip. Get the recipe on PiperCooks.com

Happy Friday everyone, how was your week?

 

Mine was a little bit busier. With the temperatures finally decent here, we’ve been able to get out and do more things, which has meant some quicker dinners on some days.  One of my favorite quick dinners to prepare is a savory breakfast (if it’s your favorite too, then you should also try my sweet potato skillet!).

 

Potato Pancake with mozzarella and onions _ PiperCooks

 

This is a pretty quick recipe to put together.  Just shred some potato and cheese, add the flour egg and parsley, chop a bit of onion and you’re ready to cook.  Add an egg or two for some protein and you’ve got a filling meal.  I like to spend time in the kitchen preparing dinner, but on those busy days, this recipe is just perfect.  I hope you like it too. I like to make a spicy yogurt to go with it, but I love spicy food.  You could switch that out for some sour cream if you prefer.  Or salsa!

 

Have a great weekend.
