40 Minute Hamburger (Crabcake) Buns

40 Minute Hamburger Buns
Other than an In-n-Out Burger or a hamburger from McDonald's, I am not that into burgers. The Shake Shack Burger was good, but I prefer the super thin fast food patty variety. But I do love a crabcake sandwich topped with crabcake sauce. I was wary of a bun recipe from Taste of Home that only took 40 minutes and involved yeast, but there was no need to be. These buns were excellent. And they took less than 40 minutes to prepare, which was the perfect time period to prepare some crabcakes while making the buns.  I don't think I will ever buy a package of hamburger rolls from the store again, these buns were so easy and tasted amazing.  Maybe even good enough for me to start eating burgers at home.  C does have a grill at our new condo in Snowmass...
40 Minute Hamburger Buns

2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water (110° to 115°)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
¼ cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
3 to 3 ½ cups flour
sesame seeds

In the bowl of a stand mixer, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil and sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in one of the eggs, salt and enough flour to form a soft dough. Using the dough hook of the stand mixer, knead until smooth and elastic, about 3 to 5 minutes. Divide into 8 pieces and shape each into a ball. Place 3" apart on greased baking sheet. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Whisk the other egg in a small bowl, brush the buns with the egg wash, sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired. Bake at 425° for 8 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool, slice in half.

I have noticed how expensive hamburger buns have gotten! Making them at home is less costly and of course better tasting and for you. Blessings for a beautiful weekend. Catherine xo

So glad to hear that you were leary of the 40 min claim. I am too. But I will take our word for it. And the picture sure helps! Often the bun makes all the difference in the hamburger. With crab burgers, I am so jacked to having one, that all else melts away. Albeit a particularly tasty bun would be added bennie.
