Reviews for 40-Minute Hamburger Buns
Sort By :
"I made this recipe 2x before reviewing. It didn't work out that well the first time, they weren't as big as they should have been (my husband still liked them). This time I made the following changes with much greater success:Use a room temperature eggLet the yeast bloom for 10 minutes, instead of 5. If its not foamy and alive after 10 scrap it and start over.Eyeball the flour, the measurement is only a guide...go by feel.Knead for at least 6 minutes, maybe a little longer depending on how soft your dough is.Make 8 instead of 12Let them rise for at least 10 minutes"
"I have tried other recipes but this is the one. I am not interested in it being quick just good. These rolls fill the bill. Tasty and can hold up to wet ingredients. I have baked 4 times. Used as hamburger roll, hot dog rolls, pulled pork sandwich and as a dinner roll. We bake them up, use what we want and freeze the rest of the finished rolls. So far the longest we have froze them was for 2 weeks but they tasted great when defrosted."
"It didn't come right for me.. will try once more and see"
"I made these according to the recipe EXACTLY. I was worried about the size so I only made 8 and they were definitely larger than slider size. Mine were 4.5 inches in diameter. Have not eaten them yet so can't speak about the flavor but they were easy and they smell delicious!"
"These are definitely not hamburger buns. Slider buns, maybe. I made 8 and that was still a stretch to get a good sized bun. They were dense, but ok for only taking 40 minutes to make."
