  4. Place the dough on a tray/pan put it above the middle rack in a preheated oven at 200°C or 400°F for about 50 minutes.

NOTE:  Place an empty tray at the bottom of the oven when you preheat it. As soon as you place the bread in the oven, add some ice water to the empty tray, 10 minutes before the bread is done, remove the tray with the water. The result is a very crispy bread.

Love this recipe. Sprinkled "everything but the bagel" seasoning on top, thinking next time, adding dehydrated garlic to one and onion to the next

This recipe was amazing !!!! I cheated by using the dough section though of an old bread machine. And then followed the remainder of the instructions. I think next time may add a wee bit less flour, as they weren't as light as the regular bakery store ones ... but maybe this is the way original Portuguese buns are supposed to be. All I know, crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside. I made a breakfast egg sandwich with half of a bun this AM (I'm a Type 1 Diabetic so try to watch my carb intake) ... and all I can say .... sooooo good! Thank you so much @Eddy for sharing this recipe with us!!! I rarely buy store made bread due to how it goes wonky quickly and hey ... that's lost money for a foodie on a tight budget. I posted a picture of how they looked on Instagram ... hopefully links are allowed in the comment area ... otherwise ... look for FatCatAnna ... https://www.instagram.com/p/Cf0KlIeMyy3/

Anyone try this with ancient grain flour like Einkorn? Did you make any modifications for the lower gluten content?
