A great bun for hamburgers or any sandwich.

1/2 cup warm water (100° to 110°F)
2 envelopes Fleischmann's® Active Dry Yeast
3/4 cup warm milk (100° to 110°F)
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter OR margarine, softened
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
2 eggs
4-1/4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour


Place warm water in large warm bowl. Sprinkle in yeast; stir until dissolved. Add warm milk, sugar, butter, salt, eggs and 2 cups flour; beat 2 minutes with electric mixer. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4 to 6 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes.  

Punch dough down. Remove dough to lightly floured surface; divide into 12 equal pieces. Form each piece into smooth ball. Place on large greased baking sheet. Flatten balls to 4-inch rounds; cover. Let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 20 to 40 minutes.  

Bake at 400°F for 10 to 15 minutes or until done. Remove from baking sheet; let cool on wire rack. 

Optional Toppings:  Brush buns with 1 beaten egg, sprinkle with Spice Islands® Minced Onions, Poppy Seeds or Sesame Seeds.
