Those bread sticks look better than Olive Garden, Joe! Because they were home made
Hopefully your lesson will stick in my mind like dough to plastic wrap and let me remember to get out the Crisco spray when I make these.

Good post. Nice pics.

Gee, I wished that my son would follow me around fixing culinary disasters-------but they looked very good just the same..........

If you used the All Recipies recipie, there is no rise and punch. It's mix shape 35 mins on the pan and bake.



HTH

I used my tried & true recipe from KitchenAid, so I had about 3 hours invested in this little educational experience. The next try will be with the recipe from Allrecipes... I already have it printed out and in my recipe binder.

Hey Joe, those look good enough to stuff a hot dog in to me ... and even better as breadsticks! The discs would have been used too, even if as a fancy "sub" bun. I think they're gorgeous, but understand your frustration (and laughter) and am glad your son made the best of it too. What a great lesson (for him). Things don't always turn out the way we plan, but that doesn't mean all is lost!

Good job ... I gotta get with it and make those allrecipes buns so I know what all the fuss is about!

It's not that the Allrecipes recipe is "exceptional" it's just that it's one of the few out there and it's very good---lots of recipes of hamburger buns on the internet, however.....Allrecipes also tells you how to roll them out which I didn't have a clue about and please if anybody finds a blockbuster recipe in the meantime let us at DC know

Following yesterday's 'deflating' experience, I bagged everything up and put it in the freezer. I stopped home for lunch and pulled two of the deflated hamburger buns from the feezer, gave then 20 seconds in the nuke, and made a couple of skinny salami samiches. OMG, are they ever tasty, in spite of their ugliness. That little bit of garlic powder, oregano and grated Parmesan just put these babies over the top.

Lesson to be learned from this is to not throw away your ugly failures. A little seasonings will cover a multitude of sins.

Now I have an idea of what to do with the next batch of buns I try to make.

Joe

Does the bun recipe need to have potato flakes or can I do a regular yeast bread dough?

As far as I know, any bread dough will work. Use whatever you like the best, and keep experimenting with new recipes to see how you like them.
