you ever impress yourself with your abilities and wish someone besides yourself understood how awesome you are to have done what you just did? That’s how I felt after making this dinner.
1 cup warm water (90-95 degrees)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
3 1/4 cups flour*
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon instant yeast
Place all ingredients in your bread machine. Select dough. Allow to run cycle.
Dump out onto lightly floured surface. Divide into 8 pieces. With each piece, slap into a bun shape. Usually four or five slaps will do it. Place on greased cookie sheets or your bun pans, cover; rise about 30 to 40 minutes.
Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 12 to 15 minutes till golden. Cool on wire racks.
You can also make this in the food processor instead of a bread machine (in case you are like me, lacking lots of kitchen machinery).
I combined the flour, sugar, salt and yeast in the food processor and pulsed to blend. Added the butter and pulsed a bit more. With the motor running I gradually added the warm water until a rough ball formed about 20 seconds. It should be slightly sticky. I then turned it out into an oiled bowl and let rise for an hour. Punched down, kneaded a bit and formed my buns and baked.
This was the first time I’ve attempted to make moomies buns in my life! I used the food processor to mix the dough before baking it. I found my buns to be a bit dense so I suggest kneading by hand for at least 15 minutes extra to ensure fluffiness standards.
Salt & Pepper
Italian Herbs (fresh or dry)
Goat Cheese (or any soft cheese that crumbles)
Swiss Chard (or any type of greens, such as Kale)
I mixed everything together (except for the swiss chard) to make the venison sliders. After you have it mixed and shaped into patties, you can bake or fry in a skillet until cooked through.
I sauteed the swiss chard with some butter and 2 tablespoons of water to steam them through. I served the venison patties on the moomies buns, topped with swiss chard.
I made mashed potatoes as my side. I used red potatoes, mashed with milk, garlic, butter and parmesan cheese. Mashed potatoes is my ultimate comfort food, what is yours? I could literally eat mashed potatoes everyday, and I used to order it everyday in grade school at the cafeteria, using it to dip my bread, meats and French fries in them.
