We don’t eat red meat frequently, but once and a while we just crave a juicy hamburger, overflowing with condiments and toppings. These last couple of weeks we have seen signs of the end of Summer and the beginning of Autumn. The winds are blowing stronger and colder and the leaves are already changing colors on the trees. Sadly, grilling season for us, is coming to a close.
On this particular grilling weather occasion, we didn’t have any hamburger buns in the house. I did not feel like taking a trip to the store, where inevitably, I would go in for one item, and come out an hour later, with two to three shopping bags full. I am not sure how this happens, and am always surprised when it does.
I thought making buns would be a lot more fun, than going to the grocery store, so I started researching hamburger bun recipes online. My requirements were simple, the buns needed to be fast, flavorful, and easy to make, with ingredients I had in my pantry.
It is hard to tell what recipes will be tasty when you are looking online. I do my best to read reviews, and peruse enough recipes, that I usually pick good ones. I always alter recipes anyway, to reflect my preferences as well as what I have in my pantry. I made a few adjustments to this hamburger bun recipe, including whole wheat flour, unsalted butter, honey, and kosher salt, to name a few ingredients.
This recipe is adapted from Taste of Homes 40 Minute Hamburger Bun Recipe. These buns were light, airy, fluffy and flavorful. They sliced cleanly, and held up beautifully to grilling. They did not fall apart, when they were piled high with our vast array of condiments and toppings. They were indeed fast and easy to make, and I had all the ingredients in my pantry to make them. We had buns left over, and used them to make delicious leftover chicken, avocado sandwiches a few days after. I will definitely be making these again, and might even shape them to hold hot dogs, when we have our next wiener roast, over our open fire pit.
