Homemade Burger Buns

The good thing about homemade breads are that there are no additives. Lecithins or improvers. The other thing I find helpful is that the size and shape can be customized. Be it breads or buns or dinner rolls. And the same recipe when aesthetically different, makes such a huge difference. These are homemade burger buns but I have made it the size of sliders. They are delightfully soft yet have a bite and have the strength to hold anything you choose to stack in them. No more flimsy soggy Burgers.
