I really do enjoy making bread, so when I started seeing recipes around the Internet on making homemade hamburger buns, I knew I wanted to try it. They really were delicious, but I’ll be honest. It’s not something I’m going to do every single time I make hamburgers. I wish I had the time to do that, but alas, with everything going on in my life I just don’t. I suppose if I were more organized, I could, and you might be! But I’m not. :-P

I really enjoyed making them though and they tasted great, so it would be a fun way to spend time with my daughter in the kitchen, or to impress guests. ;-) After all, how many people can say they’re eating hamburgers on homemade hamburger buns??

I found the original recipe on Taste of Home but changed it a little bit. I didn’t use the egg, I used SAF instant yeast because I like it and I’m impatient, and I brushed them with some melted butter.

I actually made these quite a while ago, and you may have seen a few posts on Instagram about it too.

First, proof yeast in warm water with the sugar. If it gets all bubbly like in a few minutes, you’re good to go. Add the oil , the salt and enough flour to form a soft dough. I used it all. I used my KitchenAid mixer to make this. You could certainly do it by hand too. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 3-5 minutes by hand. Do not let rise. Divide into 8 pieces; shape each into a ball. I always weigh mine first if I have to divide it into equal pieces.
