How to Make Homemade Hamburger or Slider Buns

 Hi everyone! With Superbowl right around the corner, I've got a great recipe to share for pulled pork sliders!

 Before I do so, though, I wanted to share my easy recipe for homemade buns. This one makes 12 hamburger buns or 16 perfect little sliders!

Please enjoy today's step by step video!

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 1/2 cups all purpose flour flour
  • 1 package instant yeast
  • 1 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  1. Heat the milk, water, honey and butter until butter is melted. Let cool to luke warm. Whisk in egg.
  2. Mix 2 cups of the flour, yeast, and salt. Mix into the milk mixture. Stir in the rest of the flour, 1/2 cup at a time. Beat well after each addition.
  3. When the dough pulls together, (it will form a soft ball) turn it out onto a floured surface and knead ten minutes until smooth and elastic.
  4. Divide dough into 12 -16 equal pieces. This will depend on the size you want for the finished bun - 16 makes perfect buns for sliders. Shape into smooth balls, flatten slightly, and place on a silpat covered baking sheet.
  5. Let rise for 30 to 35 minutes. When buns have almost doubled bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
  6. Brush the tops with egg wash or melted butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds (optional)
Makes 12-16
