Hamburger Buns

This recipe is courtesy of my Grandma Richards

8 cups flour
2 Tbsp yeast
2 cups warm water
3/4 cup cooking oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp salt
3 eggs
sesame seeds, optional

Combine 4 cups flour and yeast in large mixing bowl. Add water, oil, sugar and salt. Mix together. Add eggs. Mix for 3 minutes. Add remaining flour so you have a soft dough. Knead for 5 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once so top of dough is also greased. Cover and let rise until double - about 1 hour.
Divide dough in to 3 sections. Cover and let rest 5 minutes. Divide each section into 8 balls. Press flat between hands to create a 3 1/2 inch circle. Place on greased cookie sheet. Brush water on top of buns and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Brush tops of buns with melted butter.

This is the very thing that made your mom intimidate the life out of me the first time we met. I was thinking, "Really?!! She makes her own hamburger buns? Oh, I am screwed." Luckily, I realized your mom is about as laid back as I could ask for. Love her and love these! You can overnight some to me anytime!
