Anyone have any hints on how to make decent hamburger buns?
Can't find my Juliete Childs' Baking cookbook.
I think it is mainly a reduction in fat.
As long as I'm at about those addicting Cibatta buns?

I use the hamburger bun recipe on the King Arthur website.

The only change I make to the recipe is to increase the
dried onion to 1 1/2 tablespoons.

My neighbor loves 'em and says they "make the best
sandwich ever."

needs to make another batch

   New to the group - but not to baking .

   I use my regular white bread ( trying it as half-wheat today !)  
recipe , weight the dough out into 75 gram portions . Bake 'em on a 12"  
x 15" expanded mesh grilling rack from Walmart - the light cheap ones -  
covered with foil that's sprayed with cooking oil . My recipe makes ~900  
grams of dough , yielding a dozen buns per batch . Hot dog buns the same  
except 60 grams and yields 15 buns - 3 rows of 5 buns each , and there's  
a batch in the bread machine (mix and knead only) right now .

   Just checked the first batch , 2 1lb loaves , and looks like one fell  
just a bit . Not to worry , I figgered there'd be some adjustments .  
I'll post my white bread and adjusted recipes if anyone wants them .



   Or maybe not , I just realized I'm responding to a post from March of  
2014 ...

Don't worry; it happens to all of us occasionally. At least
the original post was from this century.

Perhaps a lurker can use the information if not the OP.

For hamburger/sandwich buns I use a recipe from the King  
Arthur site that makes six big buns. The only change I made
was to up the dried onion to 1 1/2 tablespoons.

I also use a recipe I modified from one posted on alt.bread.
recipes that uses a bit of rye flour along with the white
plus some celery seed and onion powder.

Nyssa, who is glad she's got a stash of the sandwich buns
in the freezer since it's too doggone hot to bake now
