Dinner tonight...

Dinner tonight was Meatball sandwiches made with 40 minute "hamburger rolls" (really!) and leftover meatballs from Wednesday night.

Mmmmmm, Meatballs!

Okay, since it was the first time using this recipe I went pretty much 'by the book' they are so light and fluffy! Next time I'm going to add some fresh herbs (maybe from the basil, oregano and rosemary that I have growing on my porch)

40 Minute Hamburger Buns

  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water, plus
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3-3 1/2 cups flour


1. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.
2. Add oil and sugar and let stand for 5 minutes.
3. Add the egg, salt and enough flour to form a soft dough.
4. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 3 to 5 minutes.
5. Do not let rise.
6. Divide into 12 pieces and shape each into a ball.
7. Place 3" apart on greased baking sheets.
8. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
9. Bake at 425° for 8 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
10. Remove from pans to wire rack to cool.
