I'm with you, Uncle Bob. I make all the bread we eat and there's nothing to compare with homemade hamburger and/or hotdog buns. Yum!

They are really not hard to make and the taste is well worth what little effort is necessary.

I've never gotten into making my own buns. I have, however, noticed that you can get delicious onion buns (like what Arby's uses for Beef - n - Cheddar's) at most grocery stores. I like mine toasted, and my burgers with lettuce, dill pickle chips, and some BBQ sauce.

To all who have contributed - thank you! This is all very helpful. You've got me thinking outside the box here. Too bad it's getting late, because you're making me hungry!
