Burger Buns

These are my standard sandwich bun.
Even Jack ate these pretty easily.
Makes 16 large, 24 medium, or 32 mini buns

1/2 c warm water
1/4 c sugar
4 tsp yeast
1/4 c unsalted butter, melted
1 c warm milk
1/2 c dried milk
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 egg yolks
1 whole egg
5 cups white whole wheat flour
1 egg white mixed with 1 T water, for egg wash
seeds, if desired

Mix warm water with 1 tablespoon of the sugar and yeast.  Let sit for 5 minutes.  Add other ingredients.  Knead 8 minutes.  Grease bowl and cover.  Let rise 1 hour.  Shape into balls. Let rise 30 to 45 minutes until puffy.  Brush with egg white wash.  Bake 10 to 15 minutes at 400F.  Cool on cooling racks.
