Burger Buns | Burger Rolls | Eggless Baking

Baking at home is always a game changer. Once you learn how to handle yeast, the entire world of bread opens up - you are literally ready to bake breads of the world! Of course there is more to baking bread than understanding yeast. A lot has to do with the different kinds of grains, flours, liquids, nuts, seeds, seasonings, and oil that go into the bread. Dough preparation process, baking times and baking temperatures also play a significant role in getting to that delicious loaf of bread at home.

Whenever I bake bread and share my recipes, I receive many queries on the above topics. Queries on bread baking terminology, substitutes, troubleshooting also abound. I plan over time do primers on each of these topics and create a section here that will become a go to for these concerns. For today however I have recipe that is much overdue. I have baked these Burger Rolls several times in the past few months and each time I have been delighted with the result. I hope you will try this recipe and share with friends too.

13/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp yeast
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup water
2 tbsp olive oil
Seasoning mix of choice for topping (See Good to Know)

  1. Warm the water, add the sugar and yeast. Stir, cover, and allow to proof (about 10 minutes).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour and salt.
  3. Add the oil into the prepared yeast, pour the whole into the flour mix.
  4. Bring together to make a dough, knead well, at least 10 minutes.
  5. Grease the dough and a large bowl. Place the dough in the bowl.
  6. Cover and leave for about an hour or until it doubles in size.
  7. Knock the dough down, divide into 6 equal portions.
  8. Shape into a ball, flatten, and place on a baking tray.
  9. Repeat for all the portions. Sprinkle with the seasoning. 
  10. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.
  11. Bake in a preheated oven at 350F for 18-20 minutes.

Good to Know
  • The dough will be sticky. grease your hands with oil to knead it.
  • If it is too sticky, add flour, a teaspoon at a time to make it easier to knead.
  • Do not add to much flour at kneading stage, the dough needs to be moist and stretchy.
  • For a seasoning mix, I have used a Trader Joe's blend called Everything but the Bagel.
  • You can use a blend of sesame seeds, garlic powder, crystal salt, and crushed black pepper in the proportions you prefer as topping.
  • It's also a great idea to try different kinds of topping per your taste and keeping in mind how you plan to use the Rolls.
