Reviews for 40-Minute Hamburger Buns
Sort By :
"Easy, cheap, quick, and tasty. The 2 tbsp yeast really turbocharges these things. You can crank out a couple of batches quickly too."
"So easy and fast! I got them done, start to finish, and had time to wash dishes and do other housework all during my toddlers nap. And they look b-e-a-utiful. I did half of the recipe because there are only 3 of us eating them, but i should've made em all. :) yummy. I also brushed mine with some butter and garlic"
"These buns are incredible! I generally followed the recipe, but depended on my stand mixer to do most of the kneading and finished them off with a brush of egg wash prior to baking to ensure they'd come out brown and beautiful. They come together super quickly, which is also an enormous plus: they are a great last minute addition to dinner!"
"These are the BEST rolls I've ever made. The first time, I made them with half wheat flour and egg and they were great. The second time I used all white bread flour and no egg, and they tasted just like Logan's Roadhouse rolls. My 11 year old actually made them that 2nd time. It was her first attempt at making yeast bread and they were so easy that I am confident she could make them anytime even without me!"
"I mixed the dough exactly as directed before reading the reviews. I had the dough rising and decided to let them rise a little longer since most reviews suggested so. After about a 30 minute rise, I baked them at 425?F for 8 minutes. Brushed the tops with butter and a sprinkle of salt as soon as they came oit of the oven. Turned out lovely. Perfect size. They were light and fluffy. Not at all dense."
