Amazing Homemade Hamburger Buns

I am SO excited about this recipe!  I don't remember being this excited about a recipe in a long time.  These Amazing Homemade Hamburger Buns are, well, AMAZING!!  We love our hamburgers, but these buns put our already loved hamburgers over the top.  I love how there is actually something to these hamburger bun instead of a weak, floppy piece of air.  These Amazing Homemade Hamburger Buns are tender, moist and full of delicious flavor.  They are so good, in fact, that my sweet little 3 year old kept sneaking them.  She even sneaked one after being threatened with a timeout!  That threat alone is usually a miracle worker.

2 tablespoons active-dry yeast
1 cup  warm water
1 cup  milk
2 large eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
6 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons butter

In a large bowl combine the yeast and water and let sit until it is foamy. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, oil, sugar, and salt. Add milk mixture to the yeast mixture and stir until combined. Add all the flour and stir until it forms a shaggy dough. Knead for 10 minutes. The finished dough should be smooth, feel slightly tacky, and spring back when poked. Return the dough to the mixing bowl and cover and let rise until doubled - about 1 hour in a warm spot. Place the dough onto a lightly floured counter and divide the dough into 8 pieces for large buns, or 16 for smaller buns.  Shape each piece of dough into a ball and place on a baking sheet.  Let rise again until they are about the size of a hamburger bun - about 30 to 40 minutes. Melt the butter and brush it over the risen hamburger buns. Bake at 375 for 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown.
