Western culinary traditions have long entered our lives. Many of us prefer overseas hamburgers. Do not rush to tell children about the dangers of fast food. Minimize the harm of fast food by cooking homemade pastries. Today we bake hamburger buns. The recipe, as in McDonald's, is reproducible at home.
Open home "McDonalds"
For some reason, the modern generation attracts all foreign. Instead of the usual bistros, we love to visit a pizzeria or McDonald's. If we offer a choice of fragrant pie with potato filling and a hamburger, of course, we will choose the second one.
Many parents prohibit their children from visiting fast foods because they consider such food harmful. Of course, in “McDonalds” your little ones will certainly want to try french fries, fragrant sauce and sweet soda. It is these products that are harmful, but sesame buns cannot be considered as such. Of course, that the abuse of flour products is also undesirable, because it has a negative effect on the figure. And each eaten loaf will leave its mark on your waist.
If you want to pamper your younger households and give them a real feast, make hamburger buns on your own. Before we talk about the best recipes, let's explore a few culinary nuances:
- Hamburger buns must be very porous, practically airy.
- Be sure to add warm milk and yeast to the dough.
- For a change, wheat flour can be mixed with buckwheat or bran.
- To make the dough properly fit, it must be put in a secluded place. Remember that yeast and draft are enemies.
- Knead the dough as long as possible, at least 5-8 minutes.
- The ideal dough for buns should not stick to the work surface or hands.
- During the time of infusion test, it should constantly increase in size. It is best to face him off every 20 minutes.
- The hamburger bun should be 6 cm in diameter. To form it, you need to nip off a piece of the dough and roll a ball out of it.
- Prepare the buns spread on a baking sheet or in a heat-resistant dish.
- Be sure to lay out the bread at a distance from each other, because in the process of heat treatment, they will increase in size.
- We send rolls for baking in an already preheated oven for 10 minutes. Then gently remove them from the oven, lubricate with milk and sprinkle to taste with sesame or flaxseeds. After that, continue to bake another 10 minutes.
- Baked rolls need to sprinkle with water and cover with a cloth, so that they do not dry out.

We have reviewed the classic recipe, which baked buns for hamburgers. A little advice: it is better to eat such buns immediately, because in time they will lose their former pomp and freshness. Try to choose only high-quality and pressed yeast. If you doubt their quality, this can be easily verified. Put a little yeast, granulated sugar and warm water in a bowl. After 5-7 minutes on the surface of the mixture should appear foam, which indicates fermentation. Otherwise, the yeast will be unusable, and the baking will be flat and knocked down.
Sesame seeds can be replaced with flaxseed, sunflower or crushed pumpkin. If desired, buns on top can not sprinkle with seeds. Start cooking the hamburger when the bun has cooled slightly.
