Mini Burger Buns

If you’re looking to go the extra mile and make hamburger buns from scratch, try out this recipe! It’s easy and the results are impressive. After the buns come out of the oven, we brush them with melted butter to make them even more delicious. We turned these into mini buns, but if you want to make regular-sizes buns, just divide the dough into 8 equal portions and bake for 15–18 minutes instead.

Preparation

  1. Add the lukewarm water to a 2-cup liquid measuring cup or medium bowl. Add the yeast and sugar and stir to combine. Let sit for 5–10 minutes, until frothy and doubled in volume.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. Add the butter, egg, and the yeast mixture and stir with a rubber spatula into a shaggy dough.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a clean surface and knead until smooth and soft, about 4 minutes. Place the dough in a clean large bowl lightly greased with nonstick spray and cover with a towel. Let rest until in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat the oven to 400°F ( 200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Lightly grease a clean surface and place the dough on top. Pat down with your hands to about ¼-inch thick. Use a ¾-inch (2-cm) round cutter to cut out small circles. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Brush the tops of the buns with melted butter, then bake for 7–10 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
  7. Remove the buns from the oven and brush with more melted butter while they are still warm. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before serving.
  8. Enjoy!
