What could possibly top a great burger but a great burger roll! You may never buy a store-bought roll again.
1 medium onion, diced
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
1/2 cup milk, scalded and cooled
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
To make the filling: Cut the onion into fine dice, and set aside. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the onion, and sauté over medium-low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the onion is light brown. Stir in the sugar, and sauté an additional 5 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
In a mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Add the milk, egg, butter, sugar, salt and flour. Stir to combine, then knead the dough till it's smooth and elastic, 5 to 10 minutes. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, turning to coat all sides, cover it with lightly greased plastic wrap, and let the dough rise till it's doubled in bulk, about 2 hours.
Punch the dough down, and knead in the sautéed onions. This is easily done with a mixer (or in a bread machine), but it's also a fairly simple matter to do it with your hands.
Shape the dough into a ball, and let it rest for 10 minutes. Roll or pat it out into a 3/4-inch thick circle.
Using a regular-sized tuna can (or other can or cutter about 3 1/2 inches across), cut the dough into nine rounds. Transfer the rounds to a baking sheet, leaving about a 1-inch clearance between them. Brush the rounds with the glaze, which you've made by beating together the egg and salt. Top the rolls with a light sprinkling of Parmesan cheese (to taste). Cover them with lightly greased plastic wrap, and set them aside to rise till light and tall, about 1 1/2 hours.
Bake the rolls in a preheated 350°F oven for 20 minutes, or until they're golden brown. Remove from the oven, and cool on a wire rack. Yield: Nine rolls.
