Homemade Hamburger Buns


  • 1-1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3-3/4 cups bread flour
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine melted
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds


  1. Mix the first seven ingredients together. Knead dough for a few minutes and then put in a lightly greased bowl, cover with a towel and allow to rise for an hour.
  2. After about an hour, take dough and pull small pieces off and roll into a ball. Pat them out to about the size of a hamburger patty with them being about 1/2" thick.
  3. Place on an ungreased cooking sheet about 1" apart. Cover and let rise again for another hour.
  4. Brush rolls with melted butter. Sprinkle with Sesame seeds. Baked at 350 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes until done. I brush them again with butter and place them under the broiler to get them a little browner.
  5. Slice them and enjoy them with hamburgers, chops, steaks, or whatever sandwich you want to make!
