This is a new recipe for me. I encourage others to try this. It was a great success.
Baking Rings
  Start with a 24” square piece of 22 gauge brushed 303 stainless steel sheet metal.
  In your Tennsmith shear cut the sheet metal into 12 strips 2” wide.
  Using your Pexto sheet metal brake bend 2” long ears on the ends of each strip.
  Form the strips into circles on a 4” round.
  Clamp the ears together to form a ring and weld the ears in three places with your Dayton tack welder.
Burger press
  Cut a 10” piece of 1” stainless hexagonal stock.
  In your lathe face and chamfer each end.
  Center drill and tap a hole in one end 1/4-20 X 1”
  Turn and face a 1/4” X 5” diameter piece of 7075 T6 aluminum
  Drill and chamfer a through hole and attach to the hexagonal piece with 1/4-20 flat head phillips screw.
Dough
  1 cup Buttermilk
  2 cups water
  3 tsp fine sea salt
  1/4 cup grape seed oil
  1/4 cup butter
  2 tbl honey
  1 tsp yeast
  2 tbl nestles malted milk
  Unbleached all purpose flour
  Combine buttermilk, water, salt, honey, malt, yeast
  Add 2 cups flour and beat mixture into paste
  melt the butter together with the oil and drizzle into paste while beating
  Add enough more flour to form a nice dough.
  Knead well. Let rise overnight.
  Punch down and double.
Forming the buns!
  Roll out dough 1” thick.
  Use your baking rings like a cookie cutter and cut the dough into buns
  Let rise in the rings until double
  Bake in the rings convection at 360F for 25 minutes

Thanks. They really were quite tasty. I thought the giant burgers would be fun. Alas my guests were chagrined!

Gene, they look fantastic.  As Barbara said, you should have invited some of us over. 

Now, what I cannot get over, you MADE those rings???????  I am in awe.  I have a hamburger bun pan that I purchased from King Arthur Flour years ago, but to have made your own rings, I salute you!!!!  Wow.

I was a machinist in a former life. I am always thinking, “I could make that”. These thoughts frequently lead me to stray from the one true path. I really should not have spent two days machining a 30 lb piece of copper into a paper towel holder.

Oh, Gene, when I read your post I laughed so loud my husband gave me a “what’s that all about?” look.

Once I explained, he laughed too. Love your dry sense of humor.

Those hamburger buns look awesome, but what impresses me the most is that you made the rings. By the way I made your pizza dough recipe quite a while back (before you posted the actual quantities) and it turned out great even though I had to do a bit of guessing with the quantity of some of the ingredients. Thanks for the recipe. Everyone loved it including my husband who isn’t a pizza lover.  smile

Thanks Rozanne that’s good to know. We are making pizza this weekend and I have some sauce ideas I am going to try.

The hamburger guests requested Curry Burgers.

I start with 1/ 1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs made in the food processor from a rustic Italian bread.
Into 1/4 cup of grape seed oil I add 2 tbl Patak’s curry and 1 clove crushed garlic.
Stir the oil mixture and let stand 5 min.
Drizzle the curry mixture into the bread crumbs with the processor running.
Beat two large eggs and mix with 1 lb extra lean grass fed ground beef.
Add the curried bread crumbs to the meat and mix well by hand. The food processor over mixes.

Curry people seem to love these. I made 1/3 lb patties to match my giant buns. Everyone who had the curry burger ate the whole thing.

Gene, maybe you can spread some raita (sp?) on the hamburger bun instead of mayo. Just a thought….....

Raita looks delicious. I love the green colour. I like to put cilantro in the curry burgers but even many curry lovers don’t like the taste of cilantro. I just don’t get it. De gustibus non disputandum.
