Jalapeno Cheddar Hamburger Buns

June 10, 2012

Guys, I just discovered that my Cuisinart bread maker has a “dough” mode. A dough mode! An entire mode dedicated solely to mixing ingredients and kneading it into a perfectly smooth, elastic round of dough! Do you know how exciting this is??? This is going to absolutely revolutionize my bread making.

Putting aside the fact that this is my first time successfully making hamburger buns, these are some of the best buns I’ve ever tasted. Firm and smooth on the outside, fluffy and moist on the inside, just the right amount of chew, and sturdy enough to handle the huge patties, bacon, and grated cheese we piled on top. The cheese in the dough disappeared into the baked bread, but there was a hint of cheddar in every bite. And while the peppers weren’t spicy enough to add much heat, they provided a nice green crunch that cut through the greasy bacon and greasy cheese on our burgers. I will definitely be making these again, and soon!
