So I just LOVE fresh homemade bread. My Man on the other hand does not. So I generally just go with the flow and haven't made the big push for a bread maker, yet!
So for some reason or another I thought that I would make it all by hand! Really BIG, but tasty, mistake.
Once it was all mixed together it said to 'knead vigourously for 10 minutes', so I began. 2 minutes in my hands were aching, my arms hurt and I kept looking at that clock watching the ticking hand that appeared to be going backwards. But I made it, eventually, and then let it to rise. 40 minutes later the dough took shape and was left for another 40 minutes to rise again. Then into a nice HOT oven and Ta-da. Homemade rolls for our Friday night Fake-away dinner.
Then out came my homemade meat patties, bacon, onion, lettuce, beetroot and BBQ sauce so create our Fake-away. Generally we would order $2 of chips to go on the side but the homemade burger buns were ginormous and I don't think they would've fitted on the plate.
And so admist munching on fresh from the oven homemade goodness I forgot to toast the buns but it didn't matter these buns ROCKED my WORLD! The only complaint I got was that it was TOO big to fit into MM's mouth. Not to worry he over came that pretty quick with the new technique of a bite from the top... and a bit from the bottom.
What's your favourite Fake-Out meal?
