Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Completely fed up with the utterly shit buns from supermarkets, plain, dry and solid, utter bollocks. Tried home made brioche buns but far too heavy so instead I've been using shop bought ciabatta buns, lightly toasted, splash of olive oil - job done. However, I went to the MEATmarket in Covent Garden last week and their buns were top dollar, soft, flavoursome, tasted of bread, nice colour and all that but the Doris was cagey about where they came from. Does anyone have any decent recipes for buns or know where in Londinium they can be bought from?

  2. Aldi do nice buns

    We make our own in the breadmaker and finish off in the oven, usual bread mix and simple!

  4. If you bake your own put a tray of water at the bottom of the oven for beautifully soft buns, fnarr fnarr!

  5. I make them myself making bread is easy. I do use the breadmaker sometimes, knead and let rise. Bung in the oven.
    Most supermarket bread is frozen that's why it's so dry, it's warmed up in store then baked.
  6. Yeah, have no dramas making bread, do it all the time (without a breadmaker so ner) but I can't find a decent recipe for burger buns or a decent supplier that sells them.

  8. Try the fresh- baked cheese topped buns at LIDL

    29p each, absolutely awesome....... lozenge shaped, so pat the burgers into the same shape before cooking.

    A weekly treat now on Saturday on the weekly shop.... best ever tasted.

  9. Another tip for stale loaves or french sticks..... turn then under a cold tap for a few seconds, then wrap in foil and cook at 180c for 5- 10 minutes, depending on thickness, wrapped in foil.

    Take out, remove the foil, then return to the oven for 5- 10 minutes until hot and crusty..... good as new.
  10. 2007_072120070074.jpg Apart from proving//baking time about 10 minutes effort required.Make your own burgers as well and you're laughing all the way to being a fat bastard.You may even win the lottery.
  11. By heck, what did you do to them?! They look terrible!
