If you are going to make spectacular hamburgers, you need to make spectacular hamburger buns. These are time consuming, but they melt in your mouth and they are porous enough to keep the jucy burger contained. They have one half pound of butter five eggs and milk. There aren't any special traps here, but the order of operations is important. Here is the recipe.

I didn't include the amylase called for in recipe, cause I couldn't find it in any of the grocery stores in my area. I'm sure the flavor suffered, but I didn't miss it. Also the dough has to fill the aluminum foil rings otherwise they won't rise enough. The bun in the front of the plate didn't have enough dough to fill the ring, whereas the ones on top filled the ring. USE BREAD FLOUR. The first time I tried this I used general purpose flour and it was a failure. There was bread, but it didn't rise very well.



Bon appetit!

Outstanding. Way to raise the bar! And if you don't use them all you can always make pain perdu.

Those buns look great! I'm not a baker but I'll bet I could get one of kids to make them.

I'm not a baker, either, or much of a cook for that matter, but I know what I like and when I can't get it where I live ( barbeque in the '80s in Northern Virginia ), I start making it myself. I can't tell you how many horrible batches of Q I made my family eat while I refined the method, but finally I got it got it down. Now I am working on bread cause I can't find bread in the store that tastes as good as good as this.

It like making Ikea furniture...just follow instructions, step by step.

Good stuff BchrisL
I use a bread machine to make my dough. I found this recipe for bread machine users.

I think that link just might come in handy...Mrs. Chicken has a bread machine!

I wonder if brioche brat buns would work.

You bet they will. I've had store-bought ones and they're marvelous. But home-madee ones? Even better!
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.
