For the bun:
- Mix the minced meat with the spices.
- Place the mixture on a flat surface and press it with your hands as much as you can. You do not want the “bed of meat” to be thick, because it will not bake properly.
- Place a piece of cheese in the center, then roll up until all cheese is covered. Make sure there are no escape holes for when the cheese starts to melt.
- Put 3-4 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a pan over low heat, add the burger meat and cover. Let it cook for 6-8 minutes on each side.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
- Place the yeast into a large bowl of a stand mixer; whisk in 2 tablespoons of flour and the warm water until smooth. Let the mixture stand until it is foamy. 10 to 15 minutes.
- Whisk in the egg, oil, sugar, and salt thoroughly into yeast mixture. Add remaining flour
- Fit a dough hook onto stand mixer and knead the dough on low speed until soft and sticky, 5 to 6 minutes. Scrape sides if needed.
- Transfer dough onto a floured work surface (the dough will be sticky and elastic). Form the dough lightly into a smooth, round shape, gently tucking loose ends underneath.
- Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned on top, 15 to 17 minutes. Buns will stick together slightly where they touch. Let cool completely, tear the buns apart, and slice in half crosswise to serve.
- Serve with cream cheese, tomatoes and lettuce.
This recipe for hamburger buns is delicious and super easy to make. Last week I made a salmon burger, extremely tasty and healthy.
I realized too late that I should have shown you how to make easy burger buns because the ones in the supermarkets are full of stupid things.
I really challenge you to read the label. Instead, those made in the house are not only much more tasty but also healthier because we know exactly what ingredients we used to prepare them.
I discovered this recipe one day when a few friends were coming to my house, and I wanted to prepare homemade chicken burger. Because we rushed to get home and because I almost never buy everything I have on my shopping list, I forgot to buy burger buns.
My muse came up with the saving idea: “No worries Paul, you will make them. It’s not that hard.” Like she would know. Like she ever made burger buns. Or any kind of buns.
I wanted some very fluffy buns.
The result was more than I expected! Beautifully grown, browned and very fluffy.
If needed, you can freeze them, and they will be suitable for any occasion. These hamburgers are ideal for any grilling. Whether it’s a fish burgers, chicken or beef, I hope you try this recipe next to the salmon burger, and I hope you like it.
