Jalapeno Cheddar Burger Buns have cheese baked right in and bring a hint of heat to really elevate the flavor of hamburgers and sandwiches.
Every so often, I’m one of those weird people that gets a bee in her bonnet and decides to make homemade hamburger buns. When I’m crafting a really great burger or sandwich, it seems a shame to slap it on ordinary store bought buns. Homemade bread has the extra heft to stand up to some really great combinations. I just can’t see serving something awesome like feta stuffed lamb burgers on generic white buns. Doing so is practically a crime!
Or at least it should be.
Sometimes I make a basic bun that goes with everything, like these cornmeal burger buns. Other times I want to inject more flavor into the bun to compliment whatever it is that I decide to put on it, as with these Italian Herb and Cheese Burger Buns. What can I say other than I love playing around with homemade bread?
To celebrate the fact that spring may finally be here Up North, we are finally able to bust out the grill! Well, bust out the grill and not run it back to the outbuilding if an errant storm passes through. Nothing will ruin dinner faster than trying to grill it when it’s rainy with 40 m.p.h. winds. Believe me! Forget the daffodils, Grilling Weather signals the official rite of spring around here.
For our inaugural run on the grill, I decided to make homemade hamburger buns to go with dinner the other night. I figure that warmer temperatures deserve a bun with a little heat to go with it, so Jalapeno Cheddar Burger Buns were born. The dough comes together in a flash with an electric mixer, and using instant yeast speeds up the rise. Don’t worry–you can knead by hand if that’s your thing. There’s still plenty of time to prepare dinner and a simple caesar salad while the dough is rising.Help dough rise faster by using an empty microwave as a bread “proof box.” Simply place a wrapped bowl of dough inside & shut the door. Keeps drafts away & encourages the bread to rise faster than when set on the counter. Click To Tweet
