I have several requests for the burger buns recipe from the other night so here it is!
What you need:
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 T butter
  • 3/4 t. salt
  • 3 1/4 c. flour
  • 2 T. sugar
  • 2 t. yeast
Add in the order listed into a bread machine. Put on the Dough cycle. When the dough is done, knead for a few minutes with flour and form into balls. Flatten. Let rise in a warm place for 20-30 minutes. Beat one eggwhite with 1 T. water and brush on top. Bake at 375F for 12 - 15 minutes. You can also use this recipe for hot dog buns.

How could you use this recipe without a bread machine? -Amanda Y. (ayyogurt)(at)(yahoo)(dotcom)

You would have to mix it, then knead for a good 5 minutes. Then let it rise for about an hour. Then pick up from the “form into balls” step.

How many does this recipe make?

These look great! I’ll have to try them. Most rolls have that high fructose corn syrup in them so it will be nice to be able to make our own and not have it. Plus I’m trying to find ways to not depend so much on the grocery stores. Thank you.

So just to clarify when making without bread machine: let dough rise for about an hour, then flatten and let rise again for about 30 minutes? I have never ever made home made bread before. We call “home made” when I buy the frozen loaves and bake! I know I can do so much better than that for my family. Also I think maybe this would be another way to save on the grocery bill…yes?

Yes, that would be right. And yes, homemade bread and baked goods are a great way to save!

Love this recipe! I just made two batches, one regular and one gluten free! I was skeptical with the gluten free, as I was experimenting, and other ‘experimental’ gluten free breads have not gone so well:-) But these actually taste and look good! Yay! All I did was substitute the flour for Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Homemade Bread Mix. I made them without a bread machine so not sure if making them in a machine would make a difference but I wouldn’t think so. Anyway, thought I would share in case anyone else wondered about gluten free:-)

Awesome, thank you for sharing that!

Hi! I am still learning the ins-and-outs of bread making, so I have a somewhat silly question. When making these, do I use active dry yeast or fast acting (quick rise) yeast? Or will they both work the same?


12 Merissa July 4, 2014 at 8:50 am

In my experience they both work about the same :)
