Sour Cream Sandwich Buns

Sour cream is a fatty food with health benefits. Why does one think it’s bad? 90  percent of its calories are derived from fat, at least half of which is  saturated. Why it’s not? The  percentage of fat is high, but the total amount isn’t. Consider that a serving  of sour cream is 2 tablespoons. That provides just 52 calories— half the amount  that’s in a single tablespoon of mayonnaise—and less saturated fat than one would  get from drinking a 12-ounce glass of 2 percent reduced-fat milk. For this recipe I opt for the full-fat sour cream as it tastes richer, and adds to the final softness of the crumb.
