I have so much hope that grilling season is upon us and what better way to prepare than to make homemade Burger Buns. To make these Homemade burger buns, I used my favorite flour from BJ's in Webster, NY. King Arthur All Purpose Flour is my all time favorite and I have found that BJ's in Webster has the cheapest price. Not only do I use this for these homemade burger buns, I also use it for almost all baked goods. That is why I love that it comes in a 12 lb bag for only $6.99.


Why I love making Homemade Burger Buns.

These buns can be frozen so they are great to have in your freezer. I love making my own burger buns at home because I can make them without all of the extra preservatives that are found in many store bought buns.

To freeze them, after baking, allow the buns to cool completely. Once cooled, wrap each on in plastic wrap and place in a heavy duty freezer back. They can be kept frozen for up to 3 months. To defrost, leave in refrigerator over night or microwave for 20 seconds. For best tasting, microwave for 15-20 minutes so that they can be slices, and place on hot grill over about 2-3 minutes, being careful not to burn.



  • 1 cup lukewarm water (about 100°-110°)
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 5 tablespoons butter, separated and melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, more if needed
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Optional: 4 tablespoons of sesame seeds


  1. In a large bowl, place warm water and sugar. Sprinkle yeast over warm water and let the yeast mixture sit for about 7-10 minutes until the yeast activates. It will become thick, frothy, and bubbly once activated.Use the bowl in which you will mix the dough in. If you use an electric mixer with a dough hook attachment, make the yeast mixture in that.
  2. Once it has activated, add egg, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, and salt to they yeast mixture. Mix together.
  3. Lastly, add the flour one cup at a time. Start off with 3 1/2 cups and add one tablespoon at a time as needed. The dough should be elastic and slightly sticky but it should not stick to your fingers. Work the dough with your hands or with a dough hook attachment if using a mixer for 6-10 minutes.
  4. Form the dough into a ball and drizzle with olive oil. Cover dough and place in warm place to rise until has doubled in size, about 1-2 hours.
  5. When the dough has doubled in size, gently deflate the dough using your fingers and cut off 8 equal sections.
  6. Shape the 8 sections into balls and gently flatten them with your hand so that they look like disks. The round disks of dough should be about 3 inches wide.
  7. Place disks on a greased baking sheet or lined with parchment paper, making sure they are about 2 inches apart.
  8. Cover baking sheet with a dry towel and let the dough sit for 45 minutes-1 hours until they puff up slightly.
  9. Preheat over to 375°.
  10. Melt the remaining tablespoons of butter you have left and brush the top of the buns. You should have melted butter left over to coat the buns again after they are baked.Optional-sprinkle top of buns with sesame seeds after brushing them with butter.
  11. Bake buns for 16-18 minutes or until the buns are lightly browned.
  12. With the butter you have left, gently brush the top of the buns again.
  13. Let buns cool completely then slice crosswise to serve.
