The Best Hamburger Buns in The World

Easy Bread Machine Hamburger Buns

If you are going to eat a bun with your burger, why not make it the best burger bun in the world?
I use my breadmaker for the dough. Don’t discount this small appliance. It’s not only the perfect place to proof dough,  if you use a breadmaker there is no mess and it frees up counter space to prepare other parts of the meal. 
Best Hamburger Buns In The World

Makes 8 buns

1 cup lukewarm water
2 TBSP lard
1 Egg
3 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 TBSP yeast

*Add ingredients to your breadmaker in order required(mine is wet first, so that is how the recipe is written)
*Use the dough cycle. When it's done, continue:
*Gently mold dough into an even loaf shape for cutting. 
*Divide dough in half, then each half into 1/4s. Now you have 8 perfect sized hamburger or sandwich rolls. 
*Shape each dough so it's smooth on top and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet(not quite touching but close enough so they bake together)
*Cover and let rise in a warm spot until rounded(they grow larger during baking)
*Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes, or until golden
*Remove and butter each bun lightly to keep them soft.
