They are better than anything you can purchase, I swear!


I have tried a number of recipes to come up with one that my family would enjoy. Several recipes are okay, but, I was looking for a GREAT one that everyone would look forward to eating. I believe I have come up with a recipe to be just that. I hope you enjoy as much as we do.


1 Tablespoon yeast (I use Red Star Active Dry Yeast)

2 Tablespoons sugar

1 ¼ cup of warm water

3 Tablespoons melted butter

1 egg beaten

1 – ½ teaspoons kosher salt

3 – 3/4 to 4 cups of Artisan bread flour – Use any leftover flour to make a base to drop your bread on after it rises. (I use Bob’s Red Mill Artisan bread flour)

How to Make Easy Delicious Hamburger Buns


  1. Put the warm water in a bowl, add yeast and sugar. Mix it up and cover with a clean towel for about 5 minutes.
  2. In a stand mixer, pour in the proofed yeast, melted butter, beaten egg and 2 cups of the Artisan bread flour. Mix in stand mixer until incorporated. Add salt and additional flour, add ½ cup at a time until you have a soft dough that pulls away from the bowl.  Cover and let mixture rise for about 1 ½ hours.
  3. Spread additional flour on a table as a base for your bread dough. Dump the flour out of your mixing bowl and turn over to coat both sides with flour. Cut dough into six to eight equal (doesn’t have to be perfect) pieces. Take each piece of dough and form into a rope about eight inches long. Loosely tie the dough together and tuck the ends in. Flatten the bun with your hand and place on a cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Cover rolls with a clean towel and let rise about an hour or until double in bulk. Place in a preheated 400 degree oven until cooked. It should take about 12 – 15 minutes (ovens may vary).

Option: You can also brush with water (for a harder crust) or use an egg wash (for a soft crust) and add seeds of your choice.

This recipe calls for Artisan bread flour. It is different from bread flour or regular all-purpose flour. It contains wheat and malted barley flour. I think you will enjoy this recipe and may decide to make your own buns from now on. Not only are they delicious, you will have wholesome buns and save some money.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you make these buns and let me know how much your family LOVES them. Subscribe to receive future articles.

  1. Its funny I put a lot of effort into the hamburger, but never really think about the bun. Thanks for this. I don’t cook bread usually, but I may try one of these cold winter days.

      They are SO good. You can make them a bit smaller for dinner rolls. After you take them out of the oven, brush them with honey, cinnamon, and butter, yummy.
