"Thank you to Inge for pointing out to me the error in this recipe; it is now updated! Sure, it's easier to buy a package of buns at the store. But these are delicious, with a fine texture and a taste that doesn't interfere with the burger or toppings (unlike those too-sweet buns you buy at the store). And they look gorgeous! (And sorry about the "1/2 egg" measurement; I just beat one egg and use only half of it.)"

"I made these last week and they were awesome! I mentioned this recipe in my blog at:http://homemadeday.blogspot.com/2012/08/easy-peasy-homemade-sesame-seed-buns.html
Thanks so much for the awesome recipe! I'll be sure to hang on to this one!"
"Since I did all the baking, the last one out of the kitchen has to clean it. That means YOU! Love 'em."
"Very nice! My first crack at hamburger buns. I also added 1/2 whole wheat. I was skeptical that the smashed circles I made would actually rise evenly (and not just puff up in the middle), but the did! They turned out just great! There was NO WAY to knead it per the instructions and I eye-balled the flour after the initial measurements. My final knead resulted in a saggy dough--like if I was making bread, I'd expect it to be tighter, but wanting the smashed circles to stay smashed, I though less flour would work, and it did!"
"These were delicious! My husband really enjoyed them and they were really hearty and stand up to a substantial burger. I froze the excess and hope we will enjoy them as much the next time around! I used olive oil instead of shortening and 1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour, 1 1/2 c. all purpose and 2 c. bread flour. Next time I make the recipe I will probably try to get 10 buns out of it because with 8 buns they turn out pretty big!"
"These do have a fine texture, they are light and airy and they rise beautifully. I subbed two cups of flour with whole wheat flour and they still turned out great. I love this recipe!!! It's my new burger bun favourite."
"EXCELLENT!!! We made these for sloppy joe night, and couldn't get enough of them! We can't wait until the next bbq or get together so we can serve them to our friends!! We followed the recipe exactly, wouldn't change a thing!"
"These were fabulous! They were not light and fluffy, but that is ok. I LOVED them! I had company over for dinner, and we had burgers. I doubled the recipe, which took care of the 1/2 egg thing, and it was perfect!!! Thanks so much!"
"These are great burger buns. Easy to make and they freeze well. They go well together with fish. And even without anything they are delicious. So make a lot, they will be gone soon. They only change I made was to use unsalted butter instead of vegetable shortening. That add a buttery touch to them. And for fish burger I like them with a touch of sweetness. So I will use a bit more of sugar. Thanks for sharing."
"DH made these, as he is the bread maker in the family. The only change he made was to use regular (skim actually) milk rather than instant (there is some milk to water ratio to follow so please don't just sub 1/3 cup milk if you try this) and we opted for seedless. I think he also said that not all the flour was used. No problem, these were very good. He did make them a bit large (they grow, ya know) but that was good too 'cause I made 2 big hamburgers from a pound of meat. (I am going to post my Cuban Hamburger recipe as soon as I get done here) I loved that they didn't fall apart either. That's a problem with some buns but I actually was able to eat that 1/2lb burger without needing a fork. Great recipe, thanks for posting, we will never buy buns from the store again."
"This is a great recipe. The buns rose beautifully and the texture was perfect. I used fresh milled wheat flour and substituted olive oil for the Crisco. I also had to use only water and an egg substitute because of a child who has dairy and egg intolerances. However, they still turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!"
"Very good and easy to make. Texture and flavor were just as I like it."
