I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Sandwich Rolls (Cheri Yorgason)

$1.83 ($0.076 per roll) Makes 24.
Compare: Market Pantry at Target's Petite Kaiser Rolls cost $2.56/12 ($0.21 per roll)

2 hours 20 minutes. 

½ c warm water
2 Tbsp yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 c warm water
½ c sugar
½ c butter, softened (microwave hard butter 15 sec)
3 beaten eggs
2 c white flour
2½ c flour
1 tsp salt

Dissolve the first 3 ingredients, mix with a whisk (or in a regular mixer) and let sit for 3-5 min. Add 1 c water and ½ c sugar and mix. Mix in the butter and eggs. Add in 2 c flour and mix. Add 2½ c more flour and salt. Mix. This mixture will be sticky. Cover with a towel and let rise for 1 hour.

Place on a generously floured surface. You don’t have to knead this dough, but it will need to be placed on the flour, rolled over 1-2 times to make it easier to work with. Flatten it out on the flour about ½ inch thick and cut into circles (use a wide cup). If making sandwiches, fold circles in half. If making hamburger buns, roll out dough ~1” thick. If making hot dog buns, shape them appropriately. Place on greased cookie sheets, cover with towels and let rise for 1 hour. Bake at 375° for 9-10 min. Remove from oven, butter the tops  (or brush with water) and enjoy!

These are excellent as sandwiches! Sliced in half, fill with meat, cheese, lettuce, etc. …yum!

For Valentine's Day, use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out the rolls. Then emphasize the shape by pinching the bottom more drastically and denting in the tops.

For Thanksgiving, shape rolls like turkey feet.

For Christmas, bake round balls in muffin tins, and snip in quarters to make crowns.
