Homemade Hamburger Buns~

I made these buns to serve at my daughter's luncheon today. I just have to elaborate! They were out of this world and very easy! I made a double batch. I served barbecue brisket on them today and I plan on grilling burgers tomorrow for the left overs! You just have to try them!

V's Hamburger Buns

2 c. warm water
5 Tblsp. sugar
1 1/2 Tblsp. yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c oil
5-6 c. flour
1 beaten egg white
1 Tblsp. water
sesame seeds or dried onion flakes

Combine the water, sugar, yeast, salt and oil in a mixing bowl. Add in flour, a cup at a time, until its a nice bread dough that doesn’t stick to the sides.

Transfer to a clean counter top or bread kneading board that has been dusted lightly with flour to keep dough from sticking. Knead for 10 minutes.

Grease a separate bowl to transfer dough once kneaded. Turn once to coat both sides of dough with oil. Cover and let rise until doubled in size.

Punch down and knead the air bubbles out. Divide into 12 pieces for hamburgers or 18 pieces for hot dogs or brats. Roll between hands into correct shapes.

Place on greased cookie sheet for 20 minutes to let rise (hot dog rolls should be squished together so they rise UP and not just out.) 

Carefully brush with mixture of egg white and water and sprinkle with seeds or flakes if desired (flakes are excellent for hamburgers.)

Bake at 400* for 20 minutes or until nicely browned. Let cool 5 minutes and then break apart and move to a cooling rack so the bottoms don’t get soggy.

I found these on my friends site~Evening Shade Morning Latte~pay her a visit!

I made the hamburger and hotdog buns last night and they were sooooooo good. The hotdog buns looked a little funny but I think with some practice I'll get them perfected! Thank you agian for the recipe!

Oh I am going to try these out for sure. One of my daughters was asking me today when we can get hamburger buns so we can have sloppy joes!! And since I make most of our bread stuff I think I will try this recipe. I tried making buns before but they just didn't quite turn out right. Ended up as a bread pudding.

Thank you for sharing this recipe. I am a mom of 8 and make bread on a regular basis. I was looking for a bun recipe to use with sloppy joes and look forward to trying this one today!
