Share A Meal Monday

I have always been really impressed when I go somewhere for dinner and there are homemade buns. I don't know why but I've always thought it takes a special talent and a lot of time to make buns. My BFF gave me this recipe (hi Shar!) and I love her for it. This is an easy and delicious recipe for homemade dinner rolls and it doesn't take a lot of talent or even much time. Now I can impress dinner guests and I haven't even done anything that spectacular!  Give it a try.

2 Hour Buns
4 cups flour
1 Tbsp fast rising yeast
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups warm water
3 Tbsp oil
1/2 tsp salt

Mix 2 cups of flour with yeast. Beat egg, sugar, water and oil together in a separate bowl. Add this to flour mixture and beat well. Add remaining flour and salt. Let rise 15 minutes then punch down. Let rise 15 more minutes and them make into buns. If desired dip tops in melted butter. Let rise one hour. Bake at 375 for 15 to 20 minutes.


  1. Thanks! I made buns last week and they ...uhhh, didn't turn out. I'm always impressed with homemade buns as well and I want to be able to impress!! Thanks for the recipe!

  2. I featured you over at Sassy Sites, trash to treasure Tuesday! Come by and check it out and don't forget to grab a featured button!! :)

  3. Woo Hoo!! I love how easy these buns are. Lately I've been putting the bowl of dough in a warm oven to help force rise it, and letting it rise for 1/2 hour instead of 15 minutes. So they're more like 3 hour buns than 2, but if I've got the time it's worth it. They end up so light and yummy!! Hmmm....maybe I should make these today!

  4. So, I'm new to linking up, and I oops'd and didn't put the name of my meal as the title of my link - I put the name of my blog. I promise I'll get it right next time!

  5. Such a nice post. Thanks for sharing such a nice post with us.......


Straight up now tell me...
