Total Time
12 hamburger


1/2 cup milk

3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

3 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon instant minced onion

2 teaspoons salt

1 (1/4-ounce) packet active dry yeast

1 1/2 cups warm water (105 to 115°F)

5 to 5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Coarse salt

Coarsely ground pepper

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat milk in 1-quart saucepan 3-4 minutes or until it just comes to a boil. Stir in butter, sugar, onion, and 2 teaspoons salt. Cool to warm (105°F to 115°F).

  2. STEP 2

    Dissolve yeast in warm water in large bowl. Add cooled milk mixture and 3 cups flour. Beat at medium speed until smooth.

  3. STEP 3

    Stir in enough remaining flour by hand to make dough easy to handle. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place into greased bowl; turn greased side up. Cover; let rise in warm place 1 hour or until double in size.

  4. STEP 4

    Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched. Punch down dough; divide in half. Shape each half with floured hands into 6 rounds; place onto greased baking sheets. Flatten each to 3 1/2-inch circle. Sprinkle with coarse salt and pepper. Cover; let rise 30 minutes or until double in size.

  5. STEP 5

    Heat oven to 400°F. 

  6. STEP 6

    Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on wire rack. Cut buns horizontally using serrated knife.
