Homemade Hamburger Buns


Last night, we had one of those nights where we decided to go with a back up menu plan for dinner. I just wasn’t feeling the potato casserole that I had planned. Last night just felt like a hamburger night…so I got out my bread machine and went to work on the hamburger buns. There’s really no work at all to these. They are simple to make and I much prefer homemade buns to those tiny store bought ones. And honestly, once you start making your own, you’ll never want the store bought.
