You will never want to buy hamburger buns again after trying this recipe. Easy to do using a bread machine and so awesome! You can also top rolls with sesame seeds after brushing with melted butter.

This was amazing! I warmed the milk, butter and egg slightly first, and I used 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour. YUMMMMMMM. I also didn't roll it out but just pinched off pieces in the size I wanted and made them nice and round. The egg wash made them gorgeously golden and the taste was fabulous!

Wow! Awesome! These are so good - I will (barring moments of great laziness) Never buy store bought buns again! I made these to sandwich Paula Deen's Crab Cakes from the Food Network website. Delish! Thanks :)

ETA: I've made these a million times now and they're wonderful! Today I was halfway thru making them & realized I was out of eggs, so I added an extra 1/2 tsp yeast, 2 tbs of butter & a tbs of canola oil. They turned out great!

These were great! I don't have a bread machine, so I had to adapt for my Kitchen aid mixer. I added the yeast to the warm milk, then combined dry ingredients in another bowl. I then added the wet ingredients including the milk mixture to the kitchen aid bowl and mixed it together. I kneaded it at the number 2 setting for about 2 minutes until the dough pulled away from the bowl, but it was very sticky. I put it in an oiled bowl to rise. Once doubled, I punched it down and let it rise again. After that point I followed the directions in the recipe.
