A few nights go Matthew wanted a burger but we had no buns. None of us were in the mood to run to the store, but then I remembered I had saved a recipe a few days before on what some people call the best hamburger buns to the point of they don’t buy them store bought anymore. Hamburger buns were made.. from scratch! Honestly, they take a bit of time of course to rise, but they are filling, soft, fresh and everything dreams are made of. I made a few extras so we could freeze them. Let’s make some buns!
The recipe comes from King Arthur’s who’s Bread Flour I always buy and used for this recipe, even though regular flour would work too.
Note to recipe: This makes 8 bun pieces (so 4 burgers). These were on the large size, so you could probably make 12 smaller ones (6 burgers) and that would be ok too.
So many pictures behind the cut, prepare yourself.
Butter your buns. I love saying that. You want to cook these buns for about 17 minutes so I would add the sesame seeds half way through.
Then honestly, magic will come out of your oven. Look at these!
