Total Time
12 hamburger buns

Ingredients

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

Directions

  1. Heat milk in 1-quart saucepan until it just comes to a boil (3 to 4 minutes); stir in butter, sugar, onion and 2 teaspoons salt. Cool to warm (105 to 115°F).
  2. Dissolve yeast in warm water in large mixer bowl. Add cooled milk mixture and 3 cups flour. Beat at medium speed until smooth (1 to 2 minutes).
  3. Stir in enough remaining flour by hand to make dough easy to handle. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes). Place into greased bowl; turn greased side up. Cover; let rise in warm place until double in size (about 1 hour).
  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 until double in size (about 30 minutes).
  5. Heat oven to 400°F. 
  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on wire rack. To serve, split buns.

I *love* this recipe. This recipe makes my all-time favorite hamburger/sandwich buns. Be careful not to add too much flour; too much flour might make the dough heavy. About 41/2 to 5 cups of flour total works for me. I use the dough hook on my KitchenAid mixer to knead the dough; perhaps this prevents me from adding too much flour during the kneading process. The dough will be slightly sticky to handle but will pull away from the sides of the mixing bowl. These rolls are light and moist with just the right amount of onion flavor, augmented by the coarse salt and pepper sprinkled on top. I make them any time we are grilling burgers. I'm so happy to have found this recipe!

I was looking for a very light type of roll for a hamburger or a sandwich. This roll is too heavy. I needed to use more flour than called for. I measured carefully. They taste good & I use them after slicing in half & toasting.
