- To make our pink buns, first start by mixing in a big bowl your active dry yeast packet (1 Tbsp), ½ Cup All Purpose Flour & 1 Cup of Hot Water. Roughly 105°F.
- Whisk and wait 15 minutes or until the mixture turns thick and foamy.
- Add in 1 Egg, 3 Tbsp Melted Butter, 2 Tbsp Sugar and 1 Tsp Salt.
- To make them PINK, add in 4 Tbsp beet juice.
- Mix together completely before adding in 2-1/2 Cups of Flour, Mix on low speed and slowly add in more flour as necessary until you get a sticky, but not sticky, but not dry consistency, but not stick.
- Once well combined take your dough out of the mixer and put into a clean bowl with some oil. Cover with tin foil and let rise for 2 hours or until it doubles in size.
- Take your dough out and flatten into a rectangular shape, cut your dough into 8 buns, tuck the sides underneath into a ball, lay them on a backing sheet, and cover with plastic wrap. Let these buns rise for 1 hour and if you have a metal ring placed around the dough it'll make the perfect shape for your hamburger bun as it rises. You can even go as far as bake it in the rings.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes at 375°F.
- Take your horseradish sauce and some red food dye and mix to make your horseradish sauce pink (You can use beet juice for this too).
- Mix your coleslaw mix with 1 Tbsp of pink horseradish sauce to give it some flavor and color.
- Time to build your Pink Bun Sandwich. Start with the PINK bottom bun, PINK Coleslaw, Red Cabbage, Rare Roast Beef, and the top bun with PINK horseradish sauce.
- If you're not a fan of Horseradish, then try ranch, or mayonnaise. Mix ketchup and mayonnaise to get a pinkish color, etc.
