Homemade "Everything" Buns

Soft and fluffy, these buns are great as a side with salad, to use as sandwich rolls, hamburger buns, or even just eaten buttered as a snack.  I take advantage of my bread machine's dough cycle to make these buns, but they can just as easily be made with a mixer or by hand.

When making any bread recipe, you may need to slightly adjust the amount of flour or milk added, depending on the humidity levels in your home.  If the dough looks too dry, add a little drizzle of milk; conversely, if the dough is too sticky, sprinkle in a little more flour.  The dough should form a smooth ball and be springy to the touch.  As my husband says, "It's all in the dough ball!"
