Epiphany Burgers

New Year...New Leaf. It's been a while since I've blogged and I miss it. I love using my blog as a way to catalog the things I make in my kitchen or have growing in my yard. So here we go again :-)

There's not much going on in the yard at the moment although I do see little bulbs already trying to poke their way through the dirt. Yay! So the kitchen is where its at for me right now. I got a Panasonic bread machine from my sweet hubby Randy for Christmas so I'm getting to know it and enjoying every minute!

 I've made a couple of not so great but I figure a little trial and error is to be expected. The best so far has been this homemade hamburger bun.

Its a bun I've seen around the web for awhile and has gotten rave reviews so I knew it would be a good one to try. Although it may look crusty, it wasn't. Soft on the the outside and inside just like a hamburger bun should be! Randy said it held up great..less mess, which is important to him! Give these a try..super easy with the machine.

Moomie's Beautiful Burger Buns

    • 1 cup water
    • 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine
    • 1 eggs
    • 3 1/4 cups flour
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon instant yeast


  1. Place all ingredients in your bread machine following the order given in the manual for your machine. Select dough. Allow to run cycle.
  2. Dump out onto lightly floured surface. Divide into 8 pieces (I did this with a sharp knife). With each piece, slap into a bun shape. Usually four or five slaps will do it. Place on greased cookie sheets or your bun pans, cover; rise about 30 to 40 minutes.
  3. Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 12 to 15 minutes till golden. Cool on wire racks.
  4. You can add a teaspoon of onion powder and about 1/2 teaspoon dried onion to the dough in the bread machine. Suzy's note: I didn't try it this time, but I will in the future. Sounds good!
 Wishing everyone a Happy New Year and Epiphany!
