Homemade 40 Minute Hamburger Buns


 As I stated last week this week is a freezer week for my family. By eating leftovers out of the fridge once a month I am able to save money and not waste food. I tried doing it once a week with the leftovers from that weeks meals, but my two sons complained about eating the same meals twice. With a few weeks in between they forget the first time they ate the meal and happily eat the freezer leftovers. Even though most of the meals have been leftovers I have baked and cooked sides. I had a number of pounds of hamburger meat that I had ground so I made burgers with it this week. To save money I always make my own hamburger buns. I have a favorite recipe that I have used for years, but this week I ran out of town so I tried a new recipe for 40 minute hamburger buns from Taste of Home.

This recipe has 7 ingredients. It takes 40 minutes of total time, 20 minutes of which is active and makes 12 servings. I eat gluten free, but the rest of my family has no problems with gluten. Luckily I have never had a reaction cooking meals for them making wheat flour, I just make sure to keep my cutting boards etc. separate. For bread I always using King Arthur Bread Flour. I really find that it makes a superior product and the texture is great. I actually ran out of bread flour at 2 cups, so for the other  1 1/2 cups I used brown rice flour. This recipe is pretty straight forward and the only major changes I made were to make 7 buns instead of 12 and increase my baking time by 5 minutes since my buns were larger.

While my family still prefers my normal recipe for buns (which takes 6 hours with rises) this recipe was well received and I really like that it only takes 40 minutes start to finish. Making homemade buns and breads can be time consuming and this recipe is a nice way to get homemade bread on the table quickly.

  1. Thank you for sharing the link to this recipe. I have never made hamburger buns. This would be wonderful for those days my son and husband would like hamburgers and I don't want to go to the store. :)

  6. Oooh, these look good! I've tried making homemade hamburger buns a couple times because everything in the store has like a million ingredients. I don't like eating processed bread!

    1. I agree with you on the processed bread, there are 30 ingredients it seems in most brands which is way too many!

  7. Hamburger buns in 40 minutes? Perfect! For whatever reason, I never seem to have bread around, so these would be nice for when I need to make some quickly.

    1. I don't keep a lot of bread around either :) Mostly because my kids eat whole loaves of bread in one sitting!
