Frugal Foodie Friday: Homemade Hamburger Buns in Minutes!
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8
  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water (I used just 1 cup, and they still turned out nicely)
  • ⅓ cup oil (I used grapeseed)
  • ¼ cup sugar (your choice)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose or white bread flour
  • 1½ to 1¾ cups whole wheat flour
  1. In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Stir in the oil and sugar, and let the mixture stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the egg, salt, white flour, and 1½ cups of the wheat flour, combining until it forms a soft dough. Add the additional ¼ cup of wheat flour as needed to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands (if you need a little more, that is okay too). Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes or so.
  3. Divide the dough into 8 pieces, shape each into a thick disc, and place them on baking sheets about 3 inches apart.
  4. Preheat your oven to 425ºF. Lightly cover the balls of dough and let them rest for about 10 minutes (or longer if you wish).
  5. Pop them in the oven and bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until nicely browned. Cool on a wire rack.
