gluten-free Hamburger Buns?

Recommended Posts

Hi all! Does anybody know a decent recipe for hamburger/hotdog/hoagie buns? Or a make of a decent gluten-free one? I just realized that will be a problem, we love our hamburgers! I tried to search for it, but come up with any mention of bun, hamburger or gluten-free.

Thanks so much!

No recipes, but Kinnicknick makes a really tasty bun. My 10 yr old loves them (so do I). The rest I have found are disgusting :blink:


Gluten free is not so bad! If you are new, hang it there, it gets easier!

I LOVE Ener-G Foods' Seattle Brown hamburger buns so much that I slice them in half and use them for English muffins for breakfast. You can order those online through Ener-G, but don't just order hamburger buns. You need to specify Seattle Brown variety, which tastes like a regular whole grain bread, better than any other type of rice based gluten free bread. See http://www.ener-g.com

If you want to try a recipe, I just use my bread recipe to make hamburger and hot dog buns. I drop the dough on a cookie sheet in the shape that I want and then dip my fingers in water and finish shaping and smooth out the dough. Then I let dough rise like normal and bake.

I actually like how the buns/roles turn out even better than the bread, because they don't dry out as easily.

This is the recipe that I use if you don't have one already: Bread recipe

I use the white bread recipe.

I have used all whole grain flours for this recipe several times and it still turns out pretty good. If I make it into loaves it some times falls a little, but the buns have turned out every time.

Wow! Thanks gary's girl! I love that site, I will have to try it like that too as soon as I get my kitchen aid mixer. (any day now) Do you know if you can use splenda or another sugar sub in place of the sugar, and a different vinegar, I have apple cider vinegar?

Thanks so much! This site is amazing!

I just ordered some from gluten free mall, dont recall what brand they are. I'll let you know how they are. So far me, Udi's bread is the best and is a keeper.

I'm making some right now from a recipe book by Bette Hagman called, "The Gluten-Free Gourmet Bakes Bread". I have now made it 3 times and my family all loves it! Just the right consistancy with bounce and not dried out and tasteless.

Sure! This will make 6 buns.

1 1/2 cups Featherlight rice flour mix (mix is this: 3 c. rice flour, 3 c. tapioca starch, 3 c. cornstarch or potato starch, 3 tbsp potato flour)

1 tsp xanthan gum

1 tsp egg replacer (optional)

1 tsp unflavored gelatin

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 1/2 tbsp sugar, divided

1 c warm water

2 1/4 tsp dry yeast granules

1 tsp dough enhancer or vinegar

1 egg

2 tbsp veggie oil

Now, I also add in 2 tbsp Vance's DariFree milk powder and 2 tbsp milled flax seed.

Place 6 muffin rings on a cookie sheet and grease with veggie oil spray. I make these using aluminum foil folded over a couple of times and try to attach the ends for the mold.

In medium bowl, whisk together the flour mix, xanthan gum, egg replacer (if using), gelatin, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. Add 1 tsp of the sugar to the warm water and sprinkle on the yeast. Set aside to foam slightly.

In a large mixing bowl (I use my Kitchen Aid mixer for the rest)blend together at low speed, the remaining sugar, dough enhancer, egg and oil. Add the yeast mixture. Beat in 1/2 of the dry ingredients, then add the rest.

Spoon the batter into prepared rings, cover lightly and let rise in a warm place until double in size (20-25 min. for rapid-rising yeast, 40-45 min. for regular yeast). Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 20-22 min.

I also love Kinnicknick, and have found the best way to have a great (bison) burger is to grill the bun on a cast iron pan. I find that the buns are too hefty for my small mouth, so I cut out the middle portion of the bun, dry it out, and grind it up in my coffee grinder for bread crumbs. All my baking bread/bun failures are ground into crumbs, which I use for fried fish, scallops and onion rings.

Until I find a recipe for a decent bun, Kinnicknick will do very nicely.

What kind of gluten free flour mix do you use when you make this?

I have used Bob's Red Mill All purpose flour mix as well as mixing up the flour suggestion in the recipe (which I think is adapted from the Gluten Free Gourmet). I usually sub 1-2 cups of brown rice flour and maybe a little sorghum flour with the rest being the alpurpose blend. My mom has used all quinoa and brown rice and had it turn out great.

A friend of mine even uses a hand mixer and it works out just as good - just takes a little more work.

I have made a very similar recipe that used honey and it turned out good too. I haven't yet tried to sub it in this particular recipe, but I think it might work just fine.

I'm not sure about the splenda. I know that things turn out a little different when cooking with it, but I have never used it myself.

By the way - enjoy your mixer! They are awesome!!!

I haven't tried any buns or bread I liked that were gluten free in the stores.....but!

I read some reviews advertised on the side of this site somewhere......and thought I'd check out the site and I actually placed an order.

They got here yesterday and I had 2 ham sandwiches on the Chullah rolls! WOW! To Die For! (not the same death as with crappy gluten-free breads....) But I learned to LOVE and ENJOY a sandwich again!

www.katzglutenfree.com

I bought the small Chullah dinner rolls.....next time I will get the Large Chullah Rolls.

This bread is soft - holds together - has a rich taste.....just like those yellow kaiser rolls at a deli.

Their products are gluten-free - DF - and Nut Free.

I WILL have a slider burger this week! So looking forward to it!

I've made gluten-free hamburger buns using all of my previously posted (in other threads) bread recipes. I cheat and use a "muffin tops" pan, which gives me perfectly formed round buns every time. (Use some water on your fingers to shape them after dropping the dough onto the pan.)

For what it's worth, the King Arthur flour catalog offers hot dog bun pans at various times through out the year. I keep meaning to buy one, but never think about it when I have extra money.
