Hamburger or Hot Dog Buns

There's nothing better with your burgers than homemade buns. For a heartier bun substitute 1 cups of whole wheat flour for 1 cup all-purpose flour. I've written the instructions for use with a stand mixer, however you can knead by hand. Prep time includes rising. Recipe comes from Peter Reinhart's 'The Bread Baker's Apprentice'. These are hearty buns, perfect for bratwurst and BBQ sandwiches. Note: Milk can be substituted for the buttermilk, and will slightly affect the final outcome, so experiment and see which one you like best. The same is true with the different types of fat.
