Add warm water to bread machine. Sprinkle in yeast and let set for 5-10 minutes. This gives the yeast time to activate.

<span></span>When the bread machine "beeps", you are ready to start forming the dough. I start by cutting the dough in halves until I get the desired size. This helps stay consistent in bun size. I knead each dough ball then shape into a ball. Place final dough into a greased baking pan, allowing enough space between each dough ball for room to rise (approximately 1/2 inch). If you prefer to make bread, skip cutting the dough and knead and place into bread pan(s).
