Sesame Seed Hamburger Buns

Be sure the egg and oil are at room temperature and always aerate your flour before measuring. Egg wash can be either one egg, an egg white, or an egg yolk mixed with a teaspoon of water. - Jenny Jones

Sesame Seed Hamburger Buns

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose or bread flour (Aerate Flour Before Measuring - See How)
  • 2 teaspoons (1 packet / 7g) instant yeast (or active dry yeast)
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup milk (reduced fat or whole milk), heated to 120-130° F for instant yeast (or 110-120°F for active dry)
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil (I use avocado oil)
  • 1 egg
  • about 1/4 cup additional flour

  • 1 additional egg, beaten
  • 3-4 Tablespoons sesame seeds

Instructions:

  1. Place flour, yeast, sugar & salt in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Stir in milk, followed by oil and egg.
  3. Beat on high for 2 minutes.
  4. On low speed add about 1/4 cup flour until dough forms a mass.
  5. Place dough on floured surface and knead 50 turns.
  6. Cover and let rest 10 minutes. Meantime, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Cut dough into 8 pieces. Shape each into a ball and place on baking sheet.
  8. Flatten each ball to about 1/2-inch thickness / about 3 1/2-inches across.
  9. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm spot until they double in size, about 30-35 minutes.
  10. Meantime, preheat oven to 375° F.
  11. Brush each bun with beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  12. Bake for 12 minutes.

No mixer? Just mix it in a bowl by hand but knead longer, about 150 turns.

  2. Chery F from Texas

    Thank you for your amazing recipes !!!!!
    Do you use a hand mixer or a stand mixer ?

  3. Arlew

    I didn’t have milk so I made this recipe with water and it still turned out perfectly.

  4. Nita

    Just tried this recipe – AMAZING – burger buns. I cut back on the sugar. Thank you Jenny !

  5. Eileen

    This looks amazing. I will try them. Loved your bread recipe and have made that several times. I miss you so much on YouTube. Would you consider making this recipe into a video?

    • Maureen

      I too miss you on YouTube, I loved watching your enthusiasm, smile 😃, come back❤

    Such an easy recipe. Made a simple lunch with what I had at home. It’s been forever since I had Sloppy Joes on buttery, toasted hamburger buns. It sure brought back memories. Jenny, thanks for the recipe 🙂

  7. elizabeth Naomi

    I like my buns to have a little crispiness on top. Does the egg wash on top just prior to baking also make this happen?

    Thank you always for your amazing breads, Jenny! I love to keep going to your web page…..If this isn’t addiction, I don’t know what is.

  8. Charity

    These are so Awesome!!! I made them tonight for smoked shredded pork and coleslaw. They were so easy to make and turned out soft and everyone in my house loved them!! Thank you, Jenny! I love your website!

  9. Lorna

    Hi Jenny
    I love the buns!
    The dough is sticky this time. I used EVOO for the oil. Do you think that’s what made the dough sticky? I’m sure they’ll turnout just fine.
    Thank you!
    Lorna

    P.S. love the chicken pot pie recipe.

    I’ve been baking with yeast for decades but am always open to trying new recipes. Your recipes are the best! My husband and I just had bratwurst on your 1-Hour Hot Dog Buns and I can tell you that I’ll be making them again as soon as we run out. Thanks so much for sharing your recipes with all of us. I’m looking forward to trying more of them.

    I made your most EXCELLENT hamburger rolls this evening.

    My Husband said that he has NEVER tasted a hamburger roll as good as the rolls your hamburger roll recipe yielded

    It has changed our lives.

    During this pandemic, I decided to make some dishes I could share with some very senior members at our church. I bought a Dutch oven in order to make quantities of soups, stews, sauces and chili. A friend of mine noted she used her to make bread, so I went on a hunt and found your recipe for no-knead bread and tried it. I was stunned at the result and so were my friends!. I was amazed how simple it was and have now made it several times. I then went to your website..what a bonanza! I have made the meatloaf twice( I bought a loaf pan with an insert to drain off the fat…works great!) the stuffed peppers..but the biggest success with the cinnamon-raisin bread. Still warm…It was the best I have ever tasted! Once I gave a slab to my best friend to taste, she requested I make her a loaf for her birthday! (which I did and it was devoured by her family) I am about to make the hamburger buns and the hotdog rolls over the next two nights. Thanks for opening up a whole new world for me! I look forward to making many of your recipes. And I love your videos..not just the additional tips, but the humor you deliver them with.

      The hamburger buns were soft and delicious. I made half with sesame seeds and half with poppy seeds. They look stunning with the egg wash on top. I only have 2 left, so I think its tuna salad sandwiches for lunch!

  15. Dotty

    Unbelievable but true, ready in an hour! I made them with coconut milk since my granddaughter doesn’t consume dairy and my husband was worried they would taste like coconut, but I didn’t hear any complaints at dinner time! Thank you for a great recipe!!!

  16. Geri

    Jenny, you’re amazing. I Have made many of your recipes successfully and easily. Your crispy rolls are my family’s new favorite. I’m 80 now and love to continue baking but without all the hassle and YOU are letting that happen. I will make your hot dog buns tomorrow. Can’t wait. Thanks dear girl. Big hug and Much love. Geri

  17. Faith

    Thank you so much for sharing your recipes
    So far all the recipes I tried are successful
    It took covid 19 to find you on YouTube 😃
    My favorites are lemon brownies, baked ziti, meatloaf, meat sauce And the no knead bread which I make twice a week. And now these humberger
    God bless

    Hi, Jenny . I was a frustrated bread maker. Wound up baking two products….2×4’s and bricks. Then I tried your no knead bread a few weeks ago…..and it works like a charm! Fresh bread several times a week and a most welcome respite from Covid. Also great because it stretches our available yeast supply. Very hard to find year in stores now. I also use the recipe in a French baguette pan. Also in a small springform for a French boule. Works great!

  19. Sarah

    First, I’m delighted that you are well.
    You recipes cut out the unnecessary steps and elevate the dishes. It makes bread making part of our everyday routine.

    Take care!

    Sarah

    Hi Jenny, I hope all is well . I just made your Easy pan pizza it is my to go to pizza recipe . Just love it. I will have to try these hamburger buns. Than you for posting your wonderful recipes!

  21. Louise Belair

    Never buying store bread again. Thanks !

  22. Julie

    I just found Jenny’s site- I made the lemon brownies, and crusty rolls so far and have both been amazing! Trying these buns next!

  23. CJ

    These burger buns taste amazing and are so easy to make even for a beginner baker. My family doesn’t want store-bought buns anymore.
    Thank you!

  24. Allan

    Hi JCC,
    Just tried making these ahead of Friday night burger night and they turned out great. We even had them toasted with egg and cheese. My good friend living in France even wanted to have the recipe… how good is that. Cheers from Canada.

  25. Susan

    Made these wonderful texture made 1/2 hamburger and 1/2 long for hotdogs or sausage! Thank you

    i make bread several times a week for my wife and I…rustic, whole wheat, 60%, and ‘white’ (unbleached) with Jenny’s no fail recipes. So good…first time with the buns for tonight’s pulled pork and slaw. They turned out great. So much appreciate your perfected recipes. They make baking a joy and so easy. We gave up on store bread several years ago when I found your YouTube channel.
    Thanks Jenny………………… Duffy
