I decided to up my burger game. While I don’t normally make burgers at home (burgers just seem better out at a bar…) I had a craving. I have been enjoying making breads as of late, so I figured I’d try my hand at burger buns. I personally love brioche, but was a little daunted since I had never attempted making brioche before. Well I gave it a go and they turned out great! 

Brioche Buns

The dough is very simple to make, but take a while to rise (roughly 2 hours).

Once you form the buns they too need to rise for another 2 hours (can take less but it was cold!).

All done!

We enjoyed our brioche buns with turkey burgers, topped with caramelized onions and lots of cheese!

For the Buns
  1. 3 tablespoons warm milk
  2. 1 cup warm water
  3. 2 teaspoons instant yeast
  4. 2½ tablespoons sugar
  5. 1½ teaspoons salt
  6. 1 large egg
  7. 3 cups bread flour
  8. 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  9. 2½ tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
For the Topping
  1. 1 large egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water, for egg wash
  2. Sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the milk, water, yeast, sugar, salt and egg.  Mix briefly to combine.
  2. Add the flours to the bowl, and mix until incorporated. Mix in the butter.
  3. Switch to the dough hook and knead on low speed for about 6-8 minutes.  The dough will be somewhat tacky.
  4. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl.  Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, roughly 2 hours.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  6. Divide the dough into 8 equal parts.  Gently roll each portion of dough into a ball and place on the baking sheet, 2-3 inches apart.  Cover loosely with lightly oiled plastic wrap and let rise again, 2 hours, until nearly doubled.
  7. Set a large metal pan of water on the lowest rack of the oven.  Preheat the oven to 400F with a rack in the center.  Brush the tops of the buns lightly with the egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  8. Bake the buns about 15 minutes rotating halfway through baking, until the tops are golden brown. Transfer to a rack to cool completely.
