Burger Buns

#1
Completely fed up with the utterly shit buns from supermarkets, plain, dry and solid, utter bollocks. Tried home made brioche buns but far too heavy so instead I've been using shop bought ciabatta buns, lightly toasted, splash of olive oil - job done. However, I went to the MEATmarket in Covent Garden last week and their buns were top dollar, soft, flavoursome, tasted of bread, nice colour and all that but the Doris was cagey about where they came from. Does anyone have any decent recipes for buns or know where in Londinium they can be bought from?

Cheers.

We make our own in the breadmaker and finish off in the oven, usual bread mix and simple!

I make them myself making bread is easy. I do use the breadmaker sometimes, knead and let rise. Bung in the oven.
Most supermarket bread is frozen that's why it's so dry, it's warmed up in store then baked.

Yeah, have no dramas making bread, do it all the time (without a breadmaker so ner) but I can't find a decent recipe for burger buns or a decent supplier that sells them.

Use normal bread recipe, it does work!

Try the fresh- baked cheese topped buns at LIDL


29p each, absolutely awesome....... lozenge shaped, so pat the burgers into the same shape before cooking.

A weekly treat now on Saturday on the weekly shop.... best ever tasted.

Another tip for stale loaves or french sticks..... turn then under a cold tap for a few seconds, then wrap in foil and cook at 180c for 5- 10 minutes, depending on thickness, wrapped in foil.

Take out, remove the foil, then return to the oven for 5- 10 minutes until hot and crusty..... good as new.
