Quick burger buns

I was wanting to make burgers when I got home tonight, but I did not have any buns, so I quickly whipped these up.


  • 1 Tbsp active yeast
  • 2 Tbsp rye starter (optional)
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups of strong white flour


  1. In a mixing bowl Combine the yeast, starter, water, oil and sugar in a bowl and let set for 5 minutes to activate
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix into a rough dough, then turn out and kneed for 10 minutes (or use a stand mixer)
  3. Divide the dough into 8 portions, roll each into balls and place onto a tray lined with baking paper, then rest for 30 minutes
  4. Place into an oven preheated to 220ºC for 10 minutes or golden brown, then turn out on a wire rack to cool
