I have a thing for burgers, especially come summer time. There is something so wonderful about a grilled, well-seasoned burger topped with bacon. I kicked off my first burgers of the season by making them extra special with homemade hamburger buns!
My camera and I weren't getting along very well, so unfortunately I didn't snap a lot of photos of the dough making process. Luckily, it's pretty straight forward. So first, you're going to whip up this beautiful, soft dough.
And divide it into twelve equally sized balls.
Flatten them out a bit and fold the dough under itself to create a nice smooth top. Brush on an egg wash and top with sesame seeds, kosher salt, herbs, or whatever floats your boat.
Let them rise for a little while, then throw them in the oven until they're just golden. Slice 'em up and toast them with a bit of butter
Top it with a homemade patty and your toppings of choice! Might I recommend some cheese, bacon, and caramelized onions. If only I'd had the patience to make those onions. I did, however, make time for sweet potato chips and a nice Deschutes Chainbreaker White IPA.
