Bread, hamburger buns & hot dog buns.
Do you buy yours or make your own?

I only ask is because I have made my own bread for years in a bread machine (actually I just use the dough cycle then form, raise then bake in my oven. I found a recipe to make dough for hamburger buns/hot dog buns & decided to use dough cycle for the dough, then shape, rise & bake.

Not only does it taste great, it saves money. Bread products have sky rocketed lately, at least where I live.

1. I prefer making my own for several reasons:
I control the incredients: more whole wheat, 12-grain supplement, sprouted flour.

My version is healthier than generic white flour.

It tastes better.

2. I don't make burger buns or hot dog buns, but should.
I have made my own French Dip rolls though.

6. I have a friend who makes his own buns all the time
I haven't had one, but he LOVES them.

I think he uses his bread machine to make the dough, too.
