Quick homemade burger buns

Delicious homemade burger buns mixed, raised and ready in under an hour! Great if you're having a cookout or summer party.

Delicious homemade burger buns mixed, raised and ready in under an hour! Burger buns have been on my list to make for a while.

I am completely in love with bread, but I don't actually buy it that often since I know it's pretty easy to make.

At the same time, I don't make it very often because I'm impatient, and by the time I think of it I'm already pretty hungry/hangry.

This recipe for sandwich buns is quick and delicious and I couldn't be happier about it. They are ready in less than 60 minutes start to finish – mixing, rising and baking time included.

Prep Time 45 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 57 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (1/2 stick)
  • 4 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast (1 package)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, (reserve 1 for glaze)
  • poppy seeds, optional

Instructions

  1. In a small pot, combine the milk, water, honey and butter over medium-low heat. Stir occasionally until butter is melted. (Do not bring to a boil!)
  2. While butter is melting, measure out flour, yeast and salt into large mixing bowl or stand mixer. Add one (room temperature) egg to the flour mixture. (If your eggs are not room temperature, run the egg under warm water for 10 seconds.)
  3. Making sure the warm liquid ingredients are not boiling hot (should be between 110-115ºF), mix in to the flour mixture. Knead for 5 minutes using a dough hook or by hand. Add more flour as needed.
  4. Divide dough into 12 balls and place on a cookie sheet.
  5. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  6. While oven is preheating, let the dough rise for 30 minutes.
  7. Before placing in oven, brush with remaining egg and sprinkle with poppy seeds (if desired).
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

Oh my goodness, Kelly, these look delicious! I could eat them plain, let alone with burgers! :)

I can't believe these only take an hour to make! That's awesome. I'm kind of the same way as you with bread - once I realized I can make my own (so much fun and so cheap!) I almost stopped buying bread. But at the same time, who's got time to regularly make bread?? So now I am missing bread in my life, and it is hard to go back to eating store bought bread. T

Haha, exactly! I don't buy it because I know I can make it, but then I don't make it. These buns are so quick though that I think I'll be making them a lot now!
