large family food idea homemade hamburger buns and oven fries

Homemade hamburger buns, I thought it was silly to make something that you can buy so cheaply at a bread store.  Well I realized it was as cheap, plus I was able to make them more nutritionally made then store bought ones.  And the fact that it is fun to say, “I made hamburger buns.”

This is a great, not hard at all, way to make homemade hamburger buns.

  • 2 pkg yeast
  • 2 c hot water
  • 1/2 c sugar

Roll out 1/2 inch thickness.  Do not stretch the dough.  Cut with a biscuit cutter or we used a glass cup.

We love to make oven fries to go with our homemade hamburgers.

Very simple to make.

Wash and cut up one potato for every person you are serving.

Lightly coat with olive oil and sprinkle All purpose seasoning over top.  (Lawrys)

Flip  then cook another 15-30 minutes.  Depending upon the crispness you want.  I recommend covering a cookie sheet with foil.  This avoids having to scrub the pan clean after using it.
