Hamburger Buns, Finally!

Recommended Posts

Alright, I haven't had a bloody hamburger bun in three years, well, a good one I mean. (Don't try the Whole Foods gluten-free Bakehouse ones, they're awful) But last night! I made the Chebe cheese bread, and took two balls of dough and flattened them out about three & 1/2 inches wide and only 1/2 inch high, and made them with part romano cheese and part chedder. They were a tiny bit doughy in the middle, but Chebe always is, it's just because of the cheese I think. And I cooked some chopped garlic and onion into my burger patties, and I almost burst into tears it was so good. I haven't had a burger on a bun in three years, and this was SO GOOD!!!!! I'm gonna try hot dog buns soon........

YAY!!!!!!!!

That sounds so good!! Too bad they dont have Chebe where I live!

Kinikinink makes fantastic hamburger buns too.

Actually, the cheapest way to get Chebe is to order online a case of 'no-frills' stuff, you have to measure out the mix but it's cheaper.

They don't have Chebe here either, but a warning about Kinnickinnik...they smell bad. I would call it a stench. Maybe I'm the only one, but I'm sure glad I don't have to eat them. I made Ty a bunwich one time, and just about choked on the smell of them. I think he ate it all. I know they come in a package of four for around $6 or $7 and he only ate three. We threw the rest out. Check with Kinnickinnik eating friends to see what they think of the smell. It's entirely possible that I'm super senstive to smell. I can't be in the room if someones making Kraft Dinner - that horrible fake cheese smell. Blech!

Meanwhile, we are still looking for a decent hamburger bun (that doesn't smell bad) that is either reasonably priced or easy to bake AND tastes good.

Well, the Chebe was rather easy to bake. It calls for a certain amount of cheese, which I used mostly cheddar and a little fresh grated romano, it smelled wonderful, tasted wonderful.....

I made really awesome hamburger buns recently. I used the Best Ever Flax Meal Bread recipe that has been floating around on this forum. Then I used a large scoop (like an ice cream scoop with a spring release) to get a good uniform size bun. I cooked them on a muffin top pan wihich mad a perfect shape. Then I sprinkled a few sesame seeds on top before cooking. They were awesome!

If you try this, I recommend that when you scoop the batter out onto the pan then with a wet hand, pat the dough down to like a thick pancake - it will puff up when it rises and bakes.

I too just made the hamburger buns using Lorka's recipe. I think I used about a 1/2c. per bun. did the sesame on top also!!!!

I love the buns from Against the Grain Gourmet......never found any others that are this yummy!!!!On our pasta nights I use the crusty rolls from Everybody Eats......

It is so wonderful to have choices!!!!!

What is a muffin top pan? Do you think another type of pan could be used, or would they not turn out a proper shape?

Hmmm, I'm not sure how to describe it . . . a muffin top pan was designed to bake just the muffin top (I've also heard the term used to describe the part of a person that hangs over jeans that are too tight - lol). Anyway, it is kind of like a cookie sheet with big round, but shallow indents in them. Does that make any sense?

Ahh - better yet - here is a picture of it:

It worked out very well for making very large/sandwich/bun sized rolles. I am now looking for a good hot dog/grinder roll pan. I think King Arthur has them.

I didn't think they smelled bad! :) I did think they were crumbly and if you put any toppings on your burger the bun will fall apart. I'd rather just go without.

Cool deal, thanks for the info!!

Yes indeedy, he is 4 years old and we often call him Darth Ezra... or sometimes Dr. Destructo. His aspiration in life is to be a super villain when he grows up :huh: Sometimes I worry :rolleyes:
