Nothing beats homemade food! This was my first attempt on making our very own burger buns and the result is awesome. And that I have to share this recipe with you, a very easy and thumbs up recipe indeed!
We had this for dinner yesterday and everyone thought that the buns were store bought...hehe! *so proud of my self* (thick skin ^^)
Alright, dinner was served....Homemade Beef Burger, yeah! all homemade except the salad lah...I have no courage to plant them yet..LOL!!
Ingredients for the Buns:
60g condensed milk
15g beaten egg
170g cold water
5g instant yeast
300g bread flour
5g milk powder
20g softened butter
* a little white sesame seed
~ Mix well condensed milk, egg, cold water and salt in a mixer. (just mix them at medium speed for 2-3 minutes)
~ Add in flour and milk powder and mix them into a dough
~ Finally add in the butter and knead into a fine dough until you can pull the dough to almost see through texture without breaking it. (Note that the dough is a little soft here)
~ Cover and let prove for 30 minutes
~ Dust some flour on the work surface and hands. Transfer the dough to the work surface.
~ Press down the dough to let the air out. Divide the dough into 60g each or smaller it you prefer.
~ Round them up. Spray some water and dust with some white sesame seeds.
~ Place them onto the prepared pan lined with parchment paper. Let prove for 1 hour.
~ Bake at 180'C for 10-13 minutes (please adjust to your own oven's temperature)
Well, as you can see below here (before and after) the buns were done. If you want to make mini buns, you should divide the dough into 30g each instead.
Ingredients for the Beef Patty:
500g minced beef (90% lean meat)
1 beaten egg
1 large onion (finely chopped)
1/2 cup Crushed Soda Biscuits
3 tbsps Worcestershire Sauce
a little salt and black pepper to taste
~ Mix all ingredients above in a large bowl
~ Make into patty about 0.5" thick (size depends)
~ Use a wax paper in between each patty when chilling for easier separation.
~ Keep chill for at least 30 minutes before frying with some olive oil.
** The patty can be store in freezer for a week in an airtight container.
Hope you like this recipe!
