Story Behind this Recipe
This is a bread recipe that my child loves to eat topped with various toppings. I made the bread simple so it didn't overpower the flavor of the toppings. You'll get a soft, fluffy roll from this recipe.
With simple ingredients, these are easily made plain bread rolls. Once you have formed the dough into a ball, if you top it with sesame seeds, they become hamburger buns. Make sure to properly punch down the dough, and form the dough properly.
