How to Make your Burger Buns in the Bread Machine

Well Hey Mom! How do we make burger buns in our bread machines?

I’m so glad you have asked once your the dough is ready (use the dough cycle) then you’re just going to knead, shape into buns and let them rise until double the size. It’s best to do this on parchment paper. Then preheat your oven (see below for the temperature) brush the buns with an egg wash. Then place on a parchment-lined baking sheet for around 15 minutes (14 – 18 depending on your oven) until golden brown.

Allow to cool and there you go you are ready to go.
