Prep Time: 30 minutes Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes Servings:8 Buns
Chipotle chili flakes
Mix together warm water, eggs, and olive oil until completely combined.
Mix together flour, yeast, sugar, and salt.
Combine both dry and wet ingredients. Mix for 5 minutes.
Knead dough in the bowl, without the addition of flour. Simply keep the dough moving and stretching for 6 minutes, like how an electric mixer uses a dough hook. Do not tear the dough apart.
Drizzle dough with olive oil and form into a ball. Cover with a clean cloth and allow the dough to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Divide dough into 2.5 ounce portions. Lightly coat each portion with olive oil and roll into a ball by first smoothing the sides and then rolling it.
Cover dough balls with a damp paper towel and let rest for 15 minutes.
Sprinkle dough balls with flour and flatten. Re-roll in order to strengthen them.
Place dough balls onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Preferably, baking rings will create more beautiful buns as they help keep their shape.
Prepare the egg wash. Whisk the eggs and egg yolks through a fine mesh strainer to completely combine. Gently brush buns until completely coated.
Sprinkle with your choice of toppings.
Bake at 425° Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes until completely golden and brown.
Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.
