These buns are perfect for making sliders!
I made some lamb sliders with caramelized onions stuffed into these tasty buns!
They can also be served as a dinner roll. They are super tender and fresh from the oven they melt in your mouth.
1 T. active dry yeast
1/2 c. warm water
1 1/2 c. warm milk
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter, softened
6 c. all purpose flour
2 c. ground rolled oats (I ground mine in a food processor)
2 t. salt
Combine the yeast and the warm water in the bowl of a stand mixer and let sit for 2 to 3 minutes.
Melt the butter and milk together.
Once the yeast is active; add the sugar, butter and milk and half of the all purpose flour and start to knead with the dough hook.
Add the eggs one at a time; knead in between and then finally add the ground oats and salt.
Knead the dough until it is smooth, about 5 minutes. This dough will be very soft.
Place in an oiled bowl, cover with a shower cap and let rise about an hour or until doubled.
Once doubled, weigh out 2 oz. pieces of dough and form into balls.
This will make about 30 buns. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit while doing this.
Cover the buns with plastic wrap and let rise for about 15 minutes.
Make an egg wash by beating an egg with 2 T. of water and brush on the tops of the buns before placing into the oven.
Bake for about 12 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
