These delicious bite-size buns are perfect for sliders and small burgers, weight watchers friendly too. They also make fantastic appetizer sandwiches, whether it’s for lunch, dinner, or a party.
Everyone will love your homemade buns filled with tiny burgers, seafood salad, shredded beef, pulled pork or chicken, or other delicious sandwich fillings.
You can be prepared by hand, with your stand mixer. You can make about 24 to 26 ounces of dough that can be divided to suit your needs.
When you divide the dough into 20 pieces weighing 1 1/2 ounce each, they’re perfect for 2-ounce burgers or meatloaf sliders. For smaller appetizer sandwiches and burgers, make 26 rolls using 1 ounce of dough for each.
To get the top crust, brush the cakes with egg wash immediately before baking. You can also sprinkle the cakes with sesame seeds for a fun finish.
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer combine the yeast and warm water. Let the mixture stand for about 10 minutes, until foamy.
Whisk the milk, egg, and melted butter together to blend.
