I've been using a specific recipe for many years, shaping the dough into a variety of rolls and loaves, but it's original form was supposed to be hamburger buns. I've always liked its adaptability, and it doesn't hurt that it is easy and tastes great!
So, just in the nick of time, I'm sharing the bun recipe with all the BBD folks.
Thanks to Cindy and Zorra!

2 tbsp butter

Place all ingredients in your bread machine. Select manual dough cycle. Allow to run cycle.
Dump out onto lightly floured surface. Divide into 8 pieces. With each piece, slap into a bun shape. Usually 4 or 5 slaps will do it. Place on greased cookie sheets or your bun pans, cover; rise about 30 to 40 minutes.
