You'll never buy store bought buns again. These are excellent. Make an extra batch to freeze for future cookouts! First posted on King Arthur Flour site.


  1. Place all ingredients in your bread machine. Select dough. Allow to run cycle.
  2. Dump out onto lightly floured surface. Divide into 8 pieces. With each piece, slap into a bun shape. Usually four or five slaps will do it. Place on greased cookie sheets or your bun pans, cover; rise about 30 to 40 minutes.
  3. Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 12 to 15 minutes till golden. Cool on wire racks. I like to add a teaspoon of onion powder and about 1/2 teaspoon dried onion to the dough in the bread machine. It makes a light onion-y flavor that is wonderful!
  4. When I do these for burgers, I split the bun, butter, and fry in a skillet till brown. Yummy! They make great sandwich buns too! Nice and soft! You can’t go wrong with this recipe!

These have the density of a potato roll. I really liked them, but they are a little heavier. I thought they would be too sweet, but they are not. Excellent!
