Sub Buns!

Today I made buns from this recipe! Just like my casserole making experience, this one starting by Googling "subway buns recipe" and picking the first result.

I was intimidated by the recipe because I haven't made bread or buns since Home Economics in Grade 8 (well, with yeast - I've made biscuits and beer bread but those are "mix all ingredients together and bake" recipes).

Post-rise, pre-bake

I think they turned out perfectly!!

I grabbed a few thin slices of pork from the grocery store and tossed them on the George Foreman Grill for five minutes, and grabbed tomato, lettuce, honey mustard, and a bit of mayo and bam! Delicious sandwich time.
One for supper, one for lunch tomorrow! Also, Rickard's Dark on special for $15 for a 12-pack - hooray Quebec beer prices!

The verdict: Really tasty, easier to make than I thought they'd be. There is a fair bit of sugar in the recipe so they taste slightly sweet - not dessert bun sweet, but sweet like white bread from Subway would be.

I will for sure make these again!!
