Versatile Players

 Homemade Slider Buns

Hand-crafted slider rolls are easy to make & can be stuffed with burgers, barbecue, fried chicken & cold cuts galore tackling big appetites in just a few bites. Gridiron aside, everyone knows that some of the best buns around come straight out of your own oven. Buttermilk Slider Buns are handsome No. 1 contenders & put the competition to shame. Forget supermarket selections that result in saucy, soggy bottoms & choose the firm yet plush texture that a homemade bun scores. Make up to 1 month ahead of time & simply freeze the buns in zip-top plastic bags until you’re ready to use them. If you’re truly looking to elevate your tailgate, offer a batch of freshly baked bread in the starting line-up. By downsizing a few fan-favorite snacks, you’ll be able to kick-off a mighty fine tailgating social in a snap.

makes about 2 1/2 dozen

Run The Option

Whisk together an egg yolk with a dabble of heavy cream, brush over the surface of the dough just before baking & sprinkle the tops with poppy or sesame seeds to score extra points.

1 cup warm water {105 to 110 degrees}
1 {1/4-oz} envelope highly active dry yeast
2 Tbsp sugar
3 3/4 cups bread flour
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 cup whole buttermilk
1 egg
Bread flour

Stir together the water, the yeast & the sugar. Let stand 5 minutes or until foamy. Meanwhile, whisk together the flour & the salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the buttermilk, the egg & the yeast mixture. Mix on Low speed 1 minute with the dough hook attachment. Increase the speed to Medium & mix 5 minutes. Shape the dough into a ball & place in a lightly greased bowl. Spray the dough surface with cooking spray. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let rise in a draft-free spot until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into about 30 {1 1/2-oz) pieces & shape into balls. Place onto parchment paper-lined half sheet pans. Lightly grease with cooking spray & cover loosely with plastic wrap. Let rise in a draft-free spot until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly press the dough balls with your fingertips to flatten slightly. Remove the plastic wrap & lightly dust the tops with bread flour. Bake, in batches, 12 to 13 minutes or until golden brown, rotating the pan after 10 minutes. Cool 30 minutes. Slice in half with a bread knife.

The Extra Point

For homemade dinner rolls, shape into 1 ounce dough portions, allow to rise & do not press flat. Add an egg wash & seeds, if desired. Bake as directed. Serve with butter.

No. 1

The Temperature

Keep the water temperature on task. If it’s too warm you’ll kill the yeast. Plus as you blend the ingredients, the dough will naturally become warmer.

No. 2

 The Cover Up

Keep the dough covered at each stage with plastic wrap. It will prevent a crusty dough surface from forming.

No. 3

 The Slicing

Warm-from-the-oven bread is one of the most glorious indulgences around. However, as tempting as it will be to slice into the buns right away, allow them to cool completely so you don’t tear the crumb on the interior which could result in a gummy, Frankenstein-like texture.
