Homemade Hamburger Buns

I never thought I would be making my own hamburger buns. 
When I saw this recipe I thought I would give it a try, just once, just for fun. 
Now I am hooked. 
They are so good, I don't think I can eat a burger (or sloppy joe's or a sandwich) at home without one! 

40-minute Homemade Hamburger Buns 


1 1/2 tbsp yeast 
1 cup + 1 tbsp warm water 
1/3 cup oil 
1/4 cup sugar 
1 tsp salt 
3 cups white whole wheat flour 


 Combine the yeast and water and let stand for about 5 minutes until foamy.  
Then add in the oil, sugar, and salt. 

Add the flour, one cup at a time, stirring until all mixed in. 
Knead the dough for about 5 minutes or until dough is easy to work with. 

I like to stretch the dough out like below and then cut it into 10 even pieces. 
Make the pieces as round as possible and then place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. 
Cover with a towel and let stand in a warm place for about 20 minutes. 
If I have more time, I allow to rise for about 30-40 minutes but 20  minutes works out fine. 

Bake at 425 for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. 

Grill up some burgers or make some Sloppy Joe's and eat up!
