Perfect 20 Minute Homemade Hamburger Buns

Burger on a plate in the French Alps - Skyrunning Girl - Naia Tower-Pierce

Since the whole process of deconfinement started it’s been difficult to drive around my town and see all the restaurants and coffee shops closed…especially burger places (restaurants). So, here I am… I made these perfect 20 minute homemade hamburger buns, at least until restaurants open!

Oh, yeah. They only take 20 minutes to make?! How crazy is that?! Okay, maybe I was in a pinch and did them in 20 minutes, but in reality it may take you 21 minutes. Who knows.

The inside and filling Recipes

First the burger! I love veggie burgers, and particularly these beet burgers are my favorite! I have yet to make homemade beet burgers, but as soon as I do you will be the first to know!

Second, we have the sauce. Now there are a million different ways to do the sauce, but here are my favorites:

Garlic Aioli

In a small bowl, mix together the following ingredients, and adjust measures to your liking.

  • 3/4 cup of Mayo
  • A squeeze of Lemon Juice
  • 3 cloves of Garlic (more or less depending on if you love garlic or not)
  • Dash of Salt
  • Dash of Ground Black Pepper


In a blender, mix together the following ingredients and adjust to measures to your liking. You’ll have an amazing pesto that you can put on your burgers, pasta, and other favorite meals!

  • Basil Leaves
  • 2-3 Garlic Cloves
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Olive Oil
  • Squeeze of Lemon
  • Dash of Salt
  • Dash of Ground Black Pepper

Mayo & Ketchup

Ah, this is just a reminder that you can just do mayo and/or ketchup.

Blue Cheese

Are you a blue cheese fan like me? Adding and melting blue cheese on top of your burger makes a delicious meal.

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees (or 220 celsius). On a floured surface, knead the dough for about 2-3 minutes. Then divide into 6 pieces (or 12 smaller pieces) and shape into balls.
  • Once shaped into balls, place the balls on a baking sheet. Let them rise for about 10 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, mix together your egg wash and using a brush stroke on top of the burgers. Then add sesame seeds on top.
  • Bake in the oven for 12 minutes or until your buns are golden!

  • I personally like to use honey instead of pure white cane sugar!
