Everybody needs a delicious and simple burger bun recipe. Whether you’re having beef burgers, chicken, turkey or veggies patties these buns are amazing!
Soft, tasty and super easy to make. All thanks to a secret ingredient that is added to the dough; potatoes 🙂 I was actually surprised about how amazing these buns turned out. I never used to think potato burger buns were the way to go but this has been my go to burger bun recipe since the first time I made them.
The dough itself is quite simple using just mashed potatoes, butter and egg as the moist makers. You also use some of the starchy potato water to bind the dough and in turn helps the buns rise beautifully.
The size of the buns depend on you, making 9 large, 12 medium or even 27 mini burger buns like in this photo below.
To make the minis, after the dough has risen the first time, divide the dough into 3 balls. Divide each dough ball into 9 then each of the 9 into 3 equaling 27 all together.
Take each one of the small balls and flatten into a round disc shape. Add a small slice of cheese, pickles, diced onions or any other filling you like. This is actually going to be the top of the mini burger so keep that in mind.
After you’ve added the toppings, place a small, round piece of FULLY cooked burger (the meat will NOT continue cooking in the oven) onto the fillings then pinch the dough around it all to seal it closed. Roll into a ball and place upside down (with the sealed side down) onto a floured baking tray. Cover and leave to rise then bake normally as stated below.
I have made these buns numerous times and they are definitely the family favourite.
Mmm!!! This looks so yummy!!!!
Thank you! They really were 🙂 i hope you try them. Thanks for the sweet comment 🙂
I haven’t had the yeast out in months. You’ve inspired me. Your buns look perfect for sandwiches, burgers, etc, but I’d love one just smeared with butter 🙂
Thanks so much for ur sweet comment 🙂 im always doing something with yeast! I have 500 gm packets of it and i run out in just a few weeks 🙂 These were great and like you said nothing beats fresh bread smeared with butter xx
