Easy Hamburger Buns

When searching for a hamburger bun recipe for Mr.Picky’s Giant Birthday Burger I found 40-Minute Hamburger Buns Recipe | Taste of Home.  I tried it and we fell in love from there.  As I mentioned in the Giant Burger post this really, really is the perfect bun.  It had a light texture that held up well the burger.  It was not overpowering and allowed you to taste more than just bread without falling apart or getting too soggy.

I also think this recipe would be made wonderfully into some dinner rolls.  In fact before I had the chance my sister used the recipe to bring to an event.  Everyone complimented her on how great the rolls were.  Can’t be a recipe that makes two things.

This yeast recipe really takes little time to rise and turns out wonderfully.  I was a little worried that my giant bun was going to turn out flat.  Trusting other comments on the bun I just kept going.  It puffed right up in the over to the perfect sized bun.  Three cheers to a perfect recipe!

Easy Hamburger Buns:

  •  2 Tbs active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3-3 1/2 cup flour

In a bowl combine yeast and water.  Add in sugar and oil and allow to sit for 5 minutes until foamy.

Add in egg, salt, and a bit of flour at a time until you form a soft dough.

Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic feeling.

Do not let rise.

Divide dough into 12 pieces and shape into balls (1 one giant piece for a giant bun).

Cover with a towel and allow to rise/rest for 10-20 minutes.

Bake at 425 for 8-12 minutes until golden brown.  The buns should sound almost hollow when tapped with your finger.
