Burger Buns

by | Jun 18, 2020 | Buns, Sourdough

At work, I always dreamed of making home made buns. Burger buns. And not the average burger bones. Most restaurants serve challah or brioche styled burger buns. I wanted a better burger bun What's that means? It's freshly baked. It's not too soft but fluffy enough to absorb the wonderful juices of a well-made burger.  Recently, Simon Bowden, an English baker in NYC who posts on Instagram forwarded a recipe for a biga-version potato bun recipe. I adapted the recipe for sourdough. And then I put them to use with a batch of lamb burgers. Fantastic!

    Hi Mike,
    I think I boiled or maybe roasted them…off hand I don’t remember, but they are a wonderful roll. And I even retarded the dough as my timing was strained…let them proof a good three hours and boom…they took off!

  9. Mike Avery

    Thanks! If you boiled, did you use the water the potatoes were boiled in to make the dough? A few bakers I know are just gaga over potato water.

  10. Jeremy

    Yeah, I suppose you could…or roast potato in jacket then peel…starchier!
