BBB - Burger buns for July
I have dusted off my old blog to honour July's BBB bread – burger buns! Sara of I like to cook chose this recipe for us since July is the month of barbecues and hot dogs for many people, at least in the Northern hemisphere. And what could be better than to make your own buns, the ones you buy are rarely worth their name, at least here in Sweden they seem to be baked with air and often fall apart in molecules.
I baked the buns and prepared two very nice sandwiches, one with home made fava bean spread, beef burger, lettuce, shallots and rocket, and the other one with brie cheese, milanese salami, lettuce, leek and rocket (yes I love rocket), arranged and took some pictures and the gulped them down since I was very hungry. Only to find later that my camera was set to raw format and my Photoshop Elements version doesn't support raw, and I couldn't find my Photoshop CD (just installed a new computer).
So all I can show you is a couple of plain buns. But my BBB friends of course have much nicer pics to show you, so head over to them straight away – links to the right! Thank you Sara, for this challenge!
The recipe is here. I reduced the amount of sugar, used spelt and wheat, and used fresh yeast because that's what we get in Sweden.
