MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 24, 2014

These will work great for the purpose I had intended for turkey burgers. I like the use of all purpose flour with the wheat flour as opposed to using bread flour. It makes them much less dense. My only changes were using Gold Medal White Whole Wheat flour and I left out the 2 seeds, but added sesame seeds to the top on the last rise. They were super easy in my bread machine. I baked them on a sheet lined with parchment paper and sprayed with PAM. I sprayed the buns after shaping too, to get the sesame seeds to stick and to cover with a piece of plastic wrap while rising. I let them rise for 40 minutes and they took 27 minutes to bake. TY

We made these for our end of the year school celebration. They had great taste and we made them without the poppy and sunflower seeds because we didn't have any. Just make sure that if you keep your yeast in the refrigarator, let it come to room temperature first or else they'll be flat.
