Bread Machine Hamburger or Hot Dog Buns

User Rating 4 Star Rating (4 Reviews)


These bread machine buns are a great choice if you're looking for a quick homemade hot dog or hamburger bun.


  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons non-fat milk powder
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 2 1/2 to 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 packet yeast (about 2 1/2 teaspoons)


Add to your bread machine in the order given (or according to bread machine's instructions) and set on "dough" cycle. When cycle finishes, turn out onto a floured board and punch down. Knead 4 or 5 times; add a little more flour as you knead if necessary to keep it from sticking. Cover dough with a clean dishcloth and let rest for about 30 minutes. Lightly grease a large baking sheet; sprinkle with cornmeal. Press dough into a circle and cut into 8 even wedges; form each wedge into a ball then flatten into a smooth and fairly even circle. Place each circle on the baking sheet and let rest for about 20 minutes. Bake at 375 for about 18 minutes, or until nicely browned. Shape these in a long narrow shape for hot dog or sausage buns, or make small shapes for party sandwiches.
Makes 8 large buns.

These looked so good! But the texture was heavy! They were big and thick. Still on the hunt for something better. They tasted ok, but just average. Nothing special.
