    Recipies For Bread Products

    Do you free bake (no bread maker) bread products with homemade recipies? I.E Hot dog buns, hamburger buns, rolls ect. I am looking to save more money by doing this. I know how to make the standard loaf bread but none of the others. Any sharing would be greatly appreciated!!

    Sounderella, have you tried googling for recipes?

    I've some I could type in, but you may find something you're comfortable trying online - which by the way is where I got most of my bread recipes long ago!


      LuxLiving: I just bought a breadmachine yesterday and remember you posting a recipe for onion bread I think. Haven't been able to find it.


        Hmmm...I don't like onion bread so I doubt it was me. Sorry. I do make olive bread for TheHubster so that might have been it. I probably have a recipe for some onion bread here though! Let me go check...hold on a sec...

        Okay, I'm back...

        My Sunset Bread Book which is just for regular baking suggests this:

        Follow a Basic White Bread recipe with these changes:

        Use 1 can (10 1/2 oz.) onion soup and enough warm water to make 2 cups liquid in place of all milk; omit sugar, use only 1 teaspoon salt, and add 1 Tablespoon of instant minced onion. Shape each loaf into a ball and place in a 1 quart round casserole; bake same as basic loaves

        This is from my Welbuilt breadmachine cookbook. I've not made this so I have no experiences to share w/you Aleta.

        Onion Bread - 1 lb. loaf for breadmachine
        water 7/8 cup
        butter/oil 4 teaspoons
        nonfat dry milk 4 teaspoons
        granulated sugar 2 teaspoons
        bread flour 2 1/4 cups
        active dry yeast 1 1/2 teaspoons
        dry onion soup mix 4 teaspoons

        Onion Bread - 1 1/2 lb. loaf for breadmachine
        water 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons
        butter/oil 2 Tablespoons
        nonfat dry milk 2 Tablespoons
        granulated sugar 1 Tablespoon
        bread flour 3 cups
        active dry yeast 2 1/4 teaspoons
        dry onion soup mix 2 Tablespoons

        It says to add the dry onion soup mix before the end of the last kneading. On my machine it beeps when it starts that part of the cycle.


        On another page in the Sunset book it offers this - also for regular bread baking:

        Onion-Herb Batter Bread

        1/2 cup milk
        1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
        1 teaspoon salt
        2 1/4 teaspoons butter or margarine
        1 pckg yeast (2 Tablespoons) - active dry or compressed
        1/2 cup warm water (lukewarm for compressed yeast)
        2 1/4 cups regular all purpose flour (sift before measuring)
        1 Tablespoon instant minced onions
        1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed, rosemary, or other herbs
        Melted butter

        Scald milk, remove from heat, and stir in sugar, salt, and butter until dissolved. Cool to lukewarm. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in the warm water. Add cooled milk mixture (Lux's note: When baking I just put my whole pan of scalded milk in the freezer for a few minutes to cool it down - pan and all). Stir flour into yeast mixture. Add instant minced onions and dill or other herbs; stir all together until well blended, about 2 minutes. Cover and let rise in warm place until tripled in bulk, about 45 minutes. At about 40 minutes in start preheating your oven. Stir down, and beat vigorously about 1/2 minute. Turn into a greased 8 inch cake pan or 9 inch pie pan. Bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees) about 1 hour. Brush top crust w/melted butter and sprinkle lightly with salt. Cool on rack. Makes one 8 inch loaf.


          Thank you Lux. Actually, that Olive Bread sounds great as well. We love taking bread like that and dipping it oil sauces.


            Sounderella - Here's my basic hot-roll recipe:

            Lux's Cathead Hot Rolls

            1 1/2 cups warm water
            2 tsp. salt
            3 Tablespoons honey
            1 1/2 Tablespoons Wesson Oil
            1 egg
            2 Tablespoons Yeast
            3-4 cups flour (depends on the weather how much you need) to a somewhat dry - not overly sticky - consistency.

            Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the rest of the ingredients. Knead for 10 minutes. Grease and put in a bowl. Cover w/a t-towel. Let it rise for an hour. Come back and squeeze off a cathead size chunk of dough. Put it in a muffin pan that's been sprayed w/Pam or shape it like a small hamburger patty & place it in a greased pan. You may need some flour on your hands to make this go easier. Spray the tops w/butter-flavored Pam and cover very loosely w/some plastic wrap. Let them rise again for 15-20 minutes then remove the plastic wrap & pop them in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes. Depends on how brown you like your tops.

            When I've got some around I replace about 1 1/2 cups of the all-purpose flour w/wheat flour and maybe toss in some wheat bran and/or wheat gluten, depending on what's in the pantry. Yeah, I'm that kind of cook.


            I just use the recipe on the side of the Quaker Oats Harina Preparada bag! Easy. Getting mine ROUND, flat and thin enough? Still a challenge, but none I've made have ever gone uneaten. While the tortillas are still warm, the boys will butter them and depending on what they're hungry for, toss on a bit of either cinnamon/sugar or Lawry's Garlic Salt w/Parsley flakes, roll them up and scarf them down in about 2 seconds flat.

            Here's supposedly a Quick Biscuit - I've not tried it yet:

            2 cups self-rising flour or 2 cups all purpose flour, 3 tsp. baking powder & 1 tsp. salt
            1 cup milk
            6 tablespoons mayonaisse

            Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a muffin pan (I use Pam), stir ingredients in small bowl & pour into muffin pan. Bake appx. 12-15 minutes.

            Here's the Lux's "Oh Poooh-QUICK I Forgot To Make The Bread" Recipe I normally use because there's no kneading or shaping required and you can add whatever you like to it:

            It's from the Sunset book as well, pg. 24 = Basic Stir & Drop Rolls

            1 pkg. yeast (2 Tablespoons) active dry or compressed
            1 cup warm water
            4 Tablespoons (1/4 cup) sugar
            1 teaspoon salt
            1 egg, beaten
            3 cups all purpose flour (they say sift - I NEVER do!)
            4 Tablespoons (1/4 cup) salad oil

            Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar, salt & beaten egg. Stir mixture well, add oil and half of the flour. Beat until very smooth. Add remaining flour to yeast and blend well. Set in a warm place & allow to rise until almost doubled in bulk, about 30 minutes. Drop dough by the spoonful into greased muffin pans so each cup is half-full. Let rise until almost doubled again. Bake in a hot oven 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Makes 24 rolls.

            I'll dig around later and see if I can't find the hot dog bun recipe. But I did get it online somewhere. Any basic bread recipe would work for those you just shape the bread as needed.
