  • Buns too thick, patties too thick. Look to Bourdain for advice on burgers kids.

  • Can you double the recipe to make 12? Would everything just be doubled? I know I can make 2 x single batches but would love to double it from the start. Thanks Josh!

  • i literally don’t understand that everybody tried this exact recipe and it came out perfect. my dough was super hard and did not rise at all. i did everything right exactly like this recipe. did some research and apparently when your milk/water that you mix your yeast in is to hot it will get killed. i did 35 degrees celsius. and it was super hot when i mixed in the yeast. so that’s what killed it.

  • INGREDIENTS:
    For Tangzhong:
    2 tablespoons (20g) bread flour
    2 tablespoons (27g) water
    4 tablespoons (60g) whole milk
    For Dough:
    1/2 cup(120g) whole milk @ 95f (30c)
    1 tablespoons (9g) instant yeast
    2.5 cups (320g) Bread flour
    1 teaspoon (7g) fine sea salt
    2.5 tablespoons (35g) granulated sugar
    1 whole egg
    1 egg yolk
    3 tablespoons (42g) unsalted butter, softened
    For Egg Wash:
    1 whole egg
    Splash of whole milk

    INSTRUCTIONS:
    Bread Dough
    For the tangzhong, add all ingredients together over medium heat, and constantly whisk until it becomes a paste.
    For the primed yeast mixture, add and mix together. Store in a warm area and let sit for 8 minutes.
    In a stand mixer bowl, add the dry ingredients. Slowly add in milk and yeast mixture, the tangzhong mix. Let homogenize. When dough starts coming together, add the egg and egg yolk. Then increase speed to medium low until incorporated. Gradually add butter until incorporated meaning when dough is mixed, nothing sticks to the sides.
    Lightly grease a medium sized bowl, gently fold and place seam side down. Place a damp towel of the dough and bring to warm area to proof for 1 – 1.5 hours
    To shape, punch the dough down then flour work surface
    Divide dough into six even pieces around 95 – 105 g
    To shape the individual buns, gently stretch flipped side down and fold to the center. Repeat this process for the whole segment of dough, then flip upside down.
    Rotate dough 90 degrees and pull towards you. Repeat two more times to complete rotation around the whole perimeter.
    Place shaped dough in rimmed sheet tray lined with parchment paper. Leave 2.5 in of space or 6 cm apart.
    Cover with similar sized sheet tray that is flipped so that the dough will not dry out.
    Before baking, brush with egg wash (1 whole egg plus a splash of milk)
    Bake at 375 degrees F or 190 C for 18 minutes until golden brown.
