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?

The winds of Change...

There came a time in our lives when our planning just didn’t make the cut. We recently moved in with family due to Chevy Man injuring his foot. I know a lot of you will understand that when you live paycheck to paycheck there just isn’t enough money to put aside for a rainy day. Now I am learning to pinch my pennies even harder than I did before. Chevy Man was in an accident on September 24th with a friend and injured his foot. The first doctors told us he broke his ankle and put him into a cast and on crutches for 8 weeks, with possible surgery. I was relieved that he wasn’t hurt more than he was, but what were we gonna do for 8 weeks!?!I called my Grandma and asked if it was alright if we stayed with her for a while. We were planning on moving to this area anyways at the end of the year so that just moved us faster and in a little less desirable situation than we would have liked. But I am so very thankful for my family. They are amazing.I packed all of our belongings into a 10x10 s…

[Guest Post] Summertime Blues

Today’s post is a part of the 20 something blogger blog swap. This post is written by Kelly over at Insert Clever Title here. Which by the way, why didn’t I think of that title?! It’s awesome, Kelly! She has a great blog and I am totally hooked. I have been reading it all day. She has a great writing style and outlook on life. I’m very excited to have her as my swap partner. This is the first every guest post here at Frugal Farmhouse, so I’m a little, ok a lot excited! Also when you check out her blog, you get to check out my post on saving money in the summer.

Something about summer has lost a bit of its magic for me. I don't know if it was the summer that I graduated from college, and was suddenly, jarringly thrown into the Real World, or if was something that had been sneaking up on me for years before that.Summer vacation doesn't exist for me anymore.It makes me both sad and, admittedly, a little bitter, to lose that sense of freedom. My reward for making it through all tho…
