Homemade Hamburger Buns

Homemade hamburger buns are way more filling than what you'll find in the store!

Servings 2 dozen buns


  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 env. yeast, 5 tsps. bulk yeast
  • 2 cups warm water, (110 degrees)
  • 3/4 cup melted lard, or whatever oil your family uses
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 3-4 cups additional flour


1. In a large bowl, combine first 4 cups of flour with the yeast. (If you are not using instant yeast, you will have to add the yeast to the warm water and let it sit for a bit before adding it to this flour.)

2. In a separate bowl combine water, melted lard, sugar, and salt.

3. Pour wet mixture into dry. Add three eggs (room temp is best) and mix with a mixer for three minutes.

4. Stir in 3-4 cups flour by hand.

5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for 8-10 minutes, adding more flour if necessary.

6. Place in a greased bowl, cover with a clean dish towel and place in a warm place to rise for about an hour.

7. After an hour, punch the dough down and divide the dough into three parts. Let all dough rest for 5 minutes.

8. Divide all three balls of dough into 8 smaller balls of dough; shape into buns.

9. Squish each bun a little bit flat between your palms and place on greased cookie sheet. Let rise in a warm place another 30 minutes.

10. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.
