Easy Burger Rolls
If you’ve never made homemade rolls before – what are you waiting for?! Seriously they’re really easy, cheap to make and you can whip them up in a hurry. I love making these burger rolls because not only do they taste great, but the kitchen smells delicious. They’re perfect for those nights when you need an easy dinner. (If you’re anything like me, you might have mince or burgers in the freezer but no fresh rolls and definitely no time or desire to head out to the supermarket!).
This recipe makes 8 large burger rolls (for a substantial size burger) or 12 medium size rolls.
- 2 tbsp active dry yeast
- 1 cup + 2 tbsp warm water
- 3 tbsp oil
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 – 3.5 cups of flour
- Milk for brushing the tops
- Sesame seeds
If making this in a stand mixer, just go ahead and make it straight into the bowl.
- In a bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Add the oil and sugar, and leave to stand for 5 mins.
- Add the salt, egg, and flour. Mix to form a soft dough, adding a little more flour if needed.
- If using a stand mixer, continue to mix for 3-5 mins until dough is smooth and elastic. If mixing by hand, tip out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 mins until smooth. (Don’t let the dough rise at this point).
- Divide into portions. This makes approx 8 large burger rolls or 12 medium size rolls.
- Gently roll the dough into balls and place approx. 7cm apart on a greased baking tray. Cover, and leave to rise in a warm place for 10+ mins. I like to leave for 30 mins if time allows.
- Preheat oven to 215°C. Optional: brush the tops of rolls with milk and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for approx 12 mins until lightly golden.
- Best eaten while warm.
