We love buns, bread, naan, muffins - English and otherwise - in all shapes and sizes.

A couple of months ago I had a hankering to make an Everything Bagel bun, but I struggled to find the seasoning here in Ontario. Americans can hit Trader Joe's but here in my part of Ontario it was elusive. But thanks to lovely Instagrammers, I found Everything Bagel seasoning by Club House at le Costco. I may have squealed in the seasoning aisle.

Whether you make these buns big for sandwiches or keep them small for dinner rolls, they are delicious carby goodness that taste like Everything Bagels. Poppy seeds, dried garlic, onion bits, sea salt, sesame seeds have never tasted s'darn good. If a dinner roll and an Everything bagel had a love child, it would be these buns. Enjoy!

Everything Bagel Buns

Yield: 24 dinner rolls or 16-20 larger buns
Time: approx. 3 hours

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk (I used 1%)
1/4 cup butter (I always salted butter)
1/4 cup white sugar
3 cups bread flour
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp Everything Bagel seasoning
2-1/4 tsp instant yeast
1 egg, beaten

Non-stick cooking spray

1 egg, beaten
1 tbsp water
2-3 tbsp(ish) Everything Bagel seasoning

In a 1-1/2 quart saucepan, mix 1/2 cup of water, milk, butter and sugar. Heat over medium-high heat just until mixture just begins to simmer.  Set aside and allow to cool until a thermometer reads 120F-130F.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, 2 tbsp of Everything Bagel seasoning and yeast; mix well. Once the milk/water mixture is between 120F-130F, add it and 1 beaten egg to the flour mixture and stir just until combined.

Sprinkle extra flour over a work surface and place dough in the centre.  Knead dough for about 5 minutes, quarter turning the dough after each knead. The dough will feel springy and have a smooth look to it.

Spray a large bowl with non-stick cooking spray and place dough inside the bowl and roll the dough around the bowl a bit to coat it in the spray. Cover the bowl loosely with plastic wrap and allow it to rise for about 1 hour in a warm spot - or until the dough has doubled in size. Your dough will be ready if, when you poke two fingers into it, the indentation remains.

Spray the bottom and sides of a glass 9x13" baking pan with cooking spray. Push your fist into the risen dough to deflate it. Divide the ball in half, then half again, then one more time for 8 smaller balls. Divide each ball into thirds for 24 dinner roll-sized buns (or divide into 12-16 equal pieces for larger buns). Shape each piece of dough into a ball and set into the prepared baking pan.

In a small bowl, combine 1 beaten egg with 1 tbsp of water.  Brush each dough ball with the egg mixture and sprinkle with Everything Bagel seasoning. Cover pan loosely with plastic wrap and allow buns to rise for about 45 minutes in a warm spot or until the dough has doubled in size.  Remove plastic wrap.

Preheat oven to 375F and set baking rack so the pan will be in the centre of the oven. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove from pan and transfer the buns to a cooling rack. Serve warm (with butter!) or cooled. 

Great for sandwiches or alongside a tasty soup, I made these buns (in large and smaller versions) twice in the same week. They were gobbled up in a few days.
