Soft Bread Maker Sandwich Buns

I make these often and use them for hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, and sloppy joes.  They make it all taste so much better.

1 1/4 cups milk, warm
1 egg, beaten
2 TBS butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp salt
3 3/4 cups bread flour
1 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1 TBS butter, melted

In bread machine, place the first 7 ingredients in order listed.
Select dough setting.
When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a floured surface and punch down.
Divide dough in half.
Roll each portion to 3/4" thickness; cut with biscuit cutter.  (I use an upside down drinking glass.)
Place each bun on lightly greased baking sheets, leaving space for rising.
Brush tops with melted butter.
Cover with clean dish towel and let rise till doubled.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.


  1. Yum! My newlymarried daughter makes all their hamburger buns-she says it is much cheaper and sooo much better. She loves being poor in money, but rich in the things that count.

  2. I just made these. They have to be the best buns I have ever had! Thanks for posting so many fun bread recipes for the bread maker!

  3. Just made these for dinner tonight and had to taste test one...delicious! I love that I was able to make the dough in the bread machine and have that time to do other stuff. Thank you!

  4. I found your site through Pinterest - lots of good recipes; thank you! However, I made these tonight and the dough never doubled in size...how long do you usually have to let these rest? Mine sat on the cookie sheets for well over an hour and never budged in size; I even started the oven and left it open a bit with the sheets on the stove top, just to see if the heat might help them along - no luck. I was able to pass them off as mini-burgers tonight, but I'd love to be able to make them full-size - they taste absolutely fantastic!
