2 INGREDIENT DOUGH - HAMBURGER AND HOTDOG BUNS

This recipe with one cup of FAGE  0% FF Greek Yogurt and 1 Cup of Self Rising Flour, I use Hudson Cream), make the best diet rolls and they are always a big hit at my house.  I made some today to freeze for when we go camping.  They are delicious!

I always mix my two ingredients by hand on the counter and it is messy but it will come together into a nice ball and if you need to add a tiny bit more flour that is ok too.  Now here is the trick to having these come out good.  I take mine and spray a little olive oil spray on the top of the dough and lay a piece of saran wrap over them.  I let the dough sit for 15-20 minutes.  For the hamburger buns, I just use a hamburger maker and I take my dough and cut it into four equal pieces and press one in the hamburger presser and flatten it round and place it upside down then on my baking pan.  For the hotdog buns, I rolled my dough out into again four oval shapes to about 5 1/2 inches long.
Then I folded in one side, then the other side and folded again to meet in the middle.  Then placed the folded side down on the baking pan.  I beat an egg and did a light egg wash over the buns and sprinkled them with Stonemill Everything Bagel Seasoning.  I baked them at 475 degrees for about 15-17 minutes but watched them very closely the last five minutes.  I want to eat one so bad, but I will be good and freeze them.  If you are on Weight Watchers they are 3 points each or 94 calories.  I guess I never told you, I also love to cook and bake!!

GREAT GRAND BABY - QUAN MARQUIS, JR.

My new darling great grandbaby is here and he was born on May 30.  His name is Quan Marquis, Jr.  He is just so precious and we just fell instantly in love with him!  I think I will call him Quan Quan or maybe Quanny, and my husband wants to call him QJ.  He is going to have to answer to many names!  We will just wait and see what fits him. 


Mom is doing fine but she is tired.  He is eating every hour, so she is not getting any rest.  The poor thing.  I think he just isn't getting full enough yet.  I wish there was a way I could help her out, but hopefully, he will be doing better soon.  I will also show you a picture of his brothers and their first meeting.  I just love this picture!


I haven't even gotten to see him with his eyes open, but he sure opened them up when he saw his two brothers!!!  The boys just love him to death!



Now I have been doing some sewing but just haven't had much time to post so some new items will be coming soon!!  I ordered some more material from JoAnn's this morning for two more tops and I want to start on those today.  Have a great day!  Cindy
