I made these on Labor Day weekend because I forgot to buy buns and didn't want to grocery shop on the holiday. I put all the ingredients in my bread maker on the dough setting and let it do its thing. I was lazy on the cutting out, too- I rolled the dough out and just took a knife and cut it into 6 equal pieces and hand shaped each piece into a bun shape and let them rise again. They turned out amazing! Bonus; they were beautiful to look at, too! I ate one without a burger, just with butter and it was like heaven exploding in my mouth. A great recipe!

This is a review of the actual writing of the recipe. It is not very clear. It says to add ALL ingredients, but then later in the recipe it says to brush with melted butter. Is this additional butter outside of what was added with ALL ingredients, or was I supposed to reserve the butter? That should be edited for clarity. I guess I will know in a couple of hours if I did it right.

I lost my recipe for hamburger buns which made 8 buns. I remembered most of the ingredents so I went looking for a good recipe. This recipe was so close to the one I had and all i had to do was cut the size down. I had to change some things but the buns came out great. The first batch came out taller so I cut the yeast down to 3/4 tsp. (remember I cut the recipe to 8 rols) I also knocked them down and flattened them to between 1/2 and 3/4 of an inch, They came out great and my pulled pork tasted great on them. I will be using it again. The ingredents on htis recipe is close to the king authers recipe and the taste is there too.

Nice buns! For Costco fans, I found that dividing the dough into 12 buns made them the perfect size for Costco 1/4 pound beef burgers. Dividing it into 8 buns made them the perfect size for Morningstar Black Bean-veggie burgers. These are really delicious...they have that slightly squishy quality that you want sometimes, like a store bought bun, but it tastes better!

Recipe was perfect just as written! I have made it several times and it always turns out fantastic. The only change I have had to make is brushing the top with egg wash instead of butter when using sesame seeds for sandwich buns, otherwise the seeds won't stick. If not using seeds, melted butter is better. Thanks for the recipe!

WOW! This recipe is a keeper. They made perfect burger buns and with the leftover dough I had I made a cute little loaf of bread. I'm gonna try it for hot dogs, and white sandwich bread and... and... and... all sorts of tasty stuff! YAY!

These were absolutely delicious! Light, fluffy. Seriously, I will never buy buns again! They were so easy to make, I have never made anything in the bread machine like this before. Definitely a keeper recipe!<br/><br/>I used 1/2 the sugar, and they needed to cook for maybe 15 minutes. Next time I will brush them with egg instead of butter to get them a nice golden brown. Even so, they are awesome!

This recipe was easy enough to put together, but for me and my family, it was way too sweet for hamburger buns. Rolling out I found to be a waste of time, really. I did roll them and cut them as directed, but found it was just as effective to divide the dough and shape into buns. For home made I would've liked a tad bit more yeast as well. Overall, we did enjoy these and it was fantastic having them hot like the meat patties. (My cooktime ended up being 20 minutes). I will be making them again and again, but I will cut the sugar in half (for starters) and increase the yeast by 1/4 t. increments until I get it the way that I prefer it. Thank you so much for sharing! :)
