Homemade Hamburger Buns

There are just some days I don't want to eat a salad and chicken. Last night I made just about the best comfort food E.V.E.R. Hamburger and fries, all homemade. YUM!!

Sometime last week I found this recipe for Awesome Hamburger Buns. They looked easy enough and I am still in the process of refining my bread box recipes, so I thought, Hey I'll give them a shot! Boy am I glad I did!

This is before baking.

My only change of the original recipe was I sprinkle basil and salt on top along with the dried onions.

This is when I pulled them out of the oven. As you can see I couldn't take a picture before Chevy Man stole one! They smelled THAT good haha!

I also found a new fry recipe. If you know me, you know there is nothing I love more than a really good fry and savory bread (Well, in this case buns!) These two went great together! You can find the fry recipe at Keep It Simple.

So this was dinner tonight. Very filling, Very comforting, and VERY yummy!


  1. This looks wonderful Brandi! Thank you for sharing. I never have the best luck with bread but want to try these. Love the new signature!


    ps... how is the dough starter going?

  2. Good Morning Debbie! Thanks for asking about my starter! Actually today will be a 2 post day. I am making bread from the starter in a few hours. You have to feed it a 8-12 hours before you can make bread. But as soon as it comes out of the oven I'll be back to post. I am crossing my fingers and toes that it is good :)

  3. Hey thanks for followin my blog.
    these hamburger buns look great...I'm gonna have to try them sometime!

  4. Yum! I am hoping to start perfecting my bread-baking technique soon! Yeast and I are not the best of friends, so it should be interesting. One of our favorite meals are burgers, oven fries and coleslaw, but I always buy my buns when 8 packs are on sale $10/10.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog -- I'm liking yours too and plan to keep coming back for more frugal tips!

  5. Those buns look delicious! I must know, what are dipping your fries into? Is that salad dressing?

  6. It is fry sauce. I think its regional to Idaho and Utah. It is half mayo and half ketchup mixed together. It is just about the best dip ever! Try and let me know what you think, its addicting!

  7. Those look absolutely fantastic! Do you think egg replacer can be used instead?
    Happy New Friend Friday!

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Braid

Source: via Brandi on Pinterest


2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 egg yolk
fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle.
Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise
Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.
Brush the top of the braid with a beaten egg yolk and sprinkle fresh rosemary on top.
Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.

How perfect does this sound for an easy Friday night din…
