Yummy Homemade Hamburger Buns & Beef Patties

Good evening, dear friends πŸ˜€

These days, the prices of our staple foods such as rice and bread have gone up considerably among other things and most households have to cook their meals more often. Last week, I decided on a simple dinner of homemade hamburger with french fries, instead of haviing the usual Ramly Burger takeouts.

However, for some reason, I couldn’t find any hamburger buns as they were out of stock at the grocery stores and a supermarket that I went to. In the end, as I have already bought my minced beef, I decided to try making my own hamburger buns for the first time and I’m glad I did – my family said the buns were so soft and delicious and the large hamburgers were so delicious!

Another reason why I wanted to make my own buns was I am always disappointed with those commercial buns on sale – they are only 2 1/2 inches across and I honestly think they are meant for children instead of adults with voracious appetites…..and oh, we were so excited to dig into those hamburgers that they went so fast and I didn’t even have time to take a picture of an “assembled hamburger” ! πŸ˜†

But here are some pictures to interest you and the recipes for the hamburger buns and beef patties are after the pictures …

Hamburger Buns baking …

Ready to eat golden 5-inches wide Hamburger Buns (they can be made smaller into 30 dinner rolls) They don’t look perfect and I always tell my kids …”it’s okay…..if it looks ugly, it must be homemade..and anything homemade is made from the heart and bound to be yummy!” Anyway, these buns taste absolutely great, just like those that we get from the bakeries.Β  πŸ˜‰

Beef patties panfried in some olive oil and butter. I used a potato masher to press down the patties to prevent them from shrinking too much πŸ˜‰

Some dill pickles

Homemade Hamburger Buns (bread machine recipe)

(makes 12 large hamburger buns or 30 small dinner rolls)

1 1/4 cups milk, slightly warmed
1 large beaten egg
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 3/4 cups bread flour
1 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

1. Place all ingredients in pan of bread machine as per the order above according to manufacturer’s directions.

2. Select “Dough” setting.

3. When cycle is complete, turn out onto floured surface.

4. Cut dough in half and roll each half out to a 1″ thick circle.

5. Cut each half into six 3 1/2″ rounds with inverted glass as a cutter.

6. Place on greased baking sheet far apart and brush with melted butter.

7. Cover and let rise until doubled, about one hour.

8. Bake at 350Β° for 9 minutes.

9. Note: Oven temperatures vary so check after 9 minutes to see if done. Some reviewers baked these anywhere from 12 to 15 minutes.

For those of you who would like to knead the dough by hand –

1) mix the yeast granules and sugar into the cup of warm milk. Set aside for 5 minutes.

2) in a large mixing bowl, put in the dry ingredients.

3) make a hole in the centre and pour in the milk mixture together with the beaten egg.

4) knead until the dough is incorporated and lumped into a nice, smooth ball.

5) leave in a covered bowl in for 1 hour until the dough has risen.

6) remove dough from bowl, and continue with Step # 5 in the recipe given above. Remember to put some flour on the work surface.

Hamburger Patties (Beef)

1 1/2 kg minced beef

1 egg

1 large onion, peeled and chopped

1 tbsp salt

1 tbsp pepper

3 tbsps Worcestershire sauce

1 cup breadcrumbs

1) Combine all ingredients above in a large bowl, mix thoroughly, cover and set aside in the refrigerator to let the flavours infuse together.

2) Shape into desired size and thickness and cook according to your preference.

Bon Appetit! πŸ˜€

    Wow, those buns look wonderful! Is that sesame seeds I’m seeing on them?
    Aren’t they sticking together on the sheetpan?

    Hi there, dear Dimitrious πŸ˜€

    Thank you for your lovely comments. Yes, those are sesame seeds on the buns, and I decided at the last minute to add them to make the buns look more interesting! πŸ˜†

    Well, the buns puffed up so much that they were touching a littlt together in the sheet pan.

    Have a great weekend!

    With peace and joy,

    Hi there and welcome, dear Kim πŸ˜€

    Thank you for your lovely comments. I love the texture of this bread recipe and in one of my later posts, I had actually use the same recipe to make a loaf of bread in my bread machine. However, the one made in my breadmachine was not as light as in the hamburger buns, perhaps there was not enough room for the bread to expand as much. I’ll try baking the loaf of bread in the overn next time post here the results.

    Have a wonderful week!

    With peace and joy,

    Hello there and welcome, dear justfoodnow πŸ˜€

    Thank you for your lovely comments. I have not tried kneading this dough by hand but I assume that this method would work as well.

    Have a great week ahead!
