I know, I know. Hamburger buns from scratch? When they’re only a couple of bucks to buy at the grocery store, who has the time? I’ve been making an effort to make time for more homemade breads this year – and I was completely blown away by these hamburger buns! I’ve always  known that bread baked in your own oven was always more substantial than the it’s airy store-bought counterpart. But, I really didn’t think it would make that much of a difference in a burger. I couldn’t have been more wrong!

This bun will hold up to any burger and toppings you should choose to pile onto it. And yet, it still manages to remain tender and really “hugs” the burger – soaking up all the delicious, beefy juices that manage to make their way out. A batch of dough for these guys was the perfect amount for us. Made just enough for all of us to have a burger, and then I froze the other half for a dinner later in the month. Most breads and doughs freeze so beautifully, it’s always so handy to have in the freezer for an easy meal.

    Made these and they came out great though not as rounded as the picture. I followed the directions exaclty. Taste, texture and color were good. I had a bit of trouble getting them all the same round size. I don’t have a scale (on my Christmas list). Next time I will make the ball, put it inside a 3″ oiled ring mold, form a disk them remove the mold. Easily can make 12 rolls if needed.
    Thanks for all the great recipes and thei.r source
