    On the subject of bread

    I didn't want to hijack Roger's bread thread.

    I would love a recipe to make hamburger buns, a kaiser like roll that doesn't 'melt' with a juicy hamburger of sloppy joe mix in it, but only make them 2 at a time. Anybody got a recipe?

    I haven't made Kaiser rolls, but the recipe seems similar from different sources. This page from Food.com has scaling capabilities.

    If the recipe makes to much for you to use you can always freeze the rolls either fully baked or partially baked and take them out when you need them. Here is a link that might help.

    +1 baking 2 rolls at a time is way to much pain/gain.

    Thanks, Bill. A place to start.
    Yeah, Don, but my freezer space is really limited in my MH.
    Hear ya, Ryan, but there is only me and I don't want a whole batch of them at one time. Not thrilled with frozen rolls even if I had the space.

    Some stores sell them individually, but they are incredibly spendy and requires going to the store.

    I was using frozen Texas rolls which make a sort of roll, but too soft, really. Also, can't find them anymore here. There I could take out or two in the morning and let the rise and have one for lunch today and the other for tomorrow. But just when you think you havea workable solution, supplies change inventory.

    Also got rid of my bread machine years go but not my Kitchen Aid, though it is a pain to dig out. Too much arthritis in neck and shoulders for manual kneading.

    Single people have interesting challenges from time to time. Keep the suggestions coming.

    I want one of those KitchenAid mixers, so I could make more than one or two loaves at a time.

    Hmm. I wonder if I could use my band saw as a slicer...

    not a bad idea roger. the meat dept in my dad's old store had a bandsaw that was used to cut chickens, sides of beef, etc (made a royal mess out of liver though). so if you use a 3/4" 8-10 tpi blade, that would do the trick. just make sure to wipe the blade down both before and after use. for bread slicing, i would recommend using a fence, hot dog and hamburger buns could be done freehand. with that done, you can always chuck up a spud or two in the lathe (mini or larger makes no difference), and spin up some curly fries to go along with the hamburgers/hot dogs.

    I make a lot of home made bread - I have worn out 3 bread machines, and now use a Kitchen Aid. My technique is a short-cut from the typical recipe - the cook books make bread way too complex. My recipe and process is documented at www.plesums.com/stuff/bread.html

    The basic recipe makes about 6-8 hamburger buns, or a couple buns plus a small loaf of bread, or some buns and some dinner rolls.

    I was half serious. The advantage of using the bandsaw for me would be that I am the only person in my household who can cut a straight slice. Everyone else cuts wedges, and they make terrible sandwiches. I would be fine with using any blade as long as it had only been used to cut wood.
