Hamburger Buns

July 9, 2015


Nothing spells disaster like a soft hamburger bun that crumbles under the weight of the mighty burger. A bun that soaks up all the juices and turns into a soggy sponge. Or one that simply disappears before the burger is completely consumed.


We’ve all been there.


However, fear no longer. These gorgeous homemade hamburger buns are not only pleasing to the eye but have the backbone to take back the barbecue.Topped with your choice of toppings such as chipotle chili flakes, sea salt, poppy seeds, or sesame seeds, these hamburger bones know how to get the job done. So get grill’n and get bakin’.



Hamburger Buns

“Light and fluffy burger buns.”


Prep Time: 30 minutes                                  Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes                                     Servings:8 Buns    




  • 2 whole eggs

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 4 teaspoons yeast

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 2 teaspoons salt

Egg Wash

  • 1 egg

  • 1 egg yolk


  • Sea salt

  • Poppy seeds

  • Sesame Seeds

  • Chipotle chili flakes



  1. Mix together warm water, eggs, and olive oil until completely combined. 

  2. Mix together flour, yeast, sugar, and salt.

  3. Combine both dry and wet ingredients. Mix for 5 minutes.

  4. Knead dough in the bowl, without the addition of flour. Simply keep the dough moving and stretching for 6 minutes, like how an electric mixer uses a dough hook. Do not tear the dough apart.

  5. Drizzle dough with olive oil and form into a ball. Cover with a clean cloth and allow the dough to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size. 

  6. Divide dough into 2.5 ounce portions. Lightly coat each portion with olive oil and roll into a ball by first smoothing the sides and then rolling it.

  7. Cover dough balls with a damp paper towel and let rest for 15 minutes. 

  8. Sprinkle dough balls with flour and flatten. Re-roll in order to strengthen them.

  9. Place dough balls onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Preferably, baking rings will create more beautiful buns as they help keep their shape.

  10. Prepare the egg wash. Whisk the eggs and egg yolks through a fine mesh strainer to completely combine. Gently brush buns until completely coated.

  11. Sprinkle with your choice of toppings. 

  12. Bake at 425° Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes until completely golden and brown.

  13. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.
