40-Minute Hamburger Buns Recipe

Publisher Photo
Here on our ranch, I cook for three men who love hamburgers. These fluffy yet hearty buns are just right for their big appetites. I also serve the buns plain with a meal. —Jessie McKenney, Twodot, Montana

"This is the best recipe. I am a seasoned bread maker and this one is a keeper. I made them yesterday while the snow was falling. They were so good , I will never buy the store kind again. It was easy and fast to make."

MY REVIEW

"I usually don't bother with "reviews" but this recipe is easy, fast and delicious. There are 7 in my family and I don't like all the preservatives in store-bought breads. With 155 "5-star"ratings and only 7 for 1 & 2 stars respectively, I think one can be safe to make this recipe. Realize that over 10 times the people liked it as did not like it, and many of the 5 star ratings did not change a thing. YMMV but life is too short to get upset over something as really insignificant as ratings for an online bread recipe. This is a great recipe for a busy schedule and worth your time to try. Take the reviews, including this one, with a grain of salt...and enjoy!"

"I've made these several times and they have completely replaced store bought burger buns in my house. They have a great flavor, hold up really well to a lot of juicy condiments and toppings, and they're fast! I usually make 6-8 if I'm making regular sized burgers or 10-12 for dinner rolls and if I have the time, let them rest closer to 20 minutes, it makes them a little lighter. Thanks for the great recipe!!

Oh, I want to add (after reading a review that criticized those of us who rate a recipe highly even when we modify it) that the first time I made these, I followed instructions exactly and I would rate the recipe at 4 stars. Really great as-is, but a couple small changes made them perfect for me."

"I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out perfect! I wish I could include a picture as they are very pretty! Made 12 buns a little bigger than a slider bun."

"First time making hamburger buns. As per recipe and directions, they came out great, made 6 buns, after 8 mins as the tops and bottoms were golden brown, took out of oven, 2 mins later, cut one in half and it was still a bit raw at the bottom. Back in the oven at 300 degrees and still waiting as it still is a bit raw, did find it a bit on the 'sweet side' would lower the sugar amount the next time. Any suggestions on WHY it didn't cook all the way through? would appreciate it."
