Healthy Recipes: Hamburger Buns

One of those great pleasures – sometimes forbidden – is a good hamburger. That which makes us “lose our heads” and “sin” from time to time.

Everybody knows that it is much better, and also much healthier, a homemade hamburger. It has nothing to do with those big chain commercial hamburgers. For that reason, we bring you one of the bases of the homemade and healthy hamburger: the hamburger bun.


250 g. of Tritordeum flour
2 g. of dry yeast or 6 g. of fresh yeast
1 egg
40 g. of butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons of sugar
400 ml. of warm milk
100 ml. of warm water
Poppy or sesame seeds as decoration



Take a bowl and place the Tritordeum flour in the form of a volcano (with a space in the center). Divide the salt and sugar around the edges without introducing it in the center. Take the dry yeast and place it in the center.


Add warm water, milk, butter and milk to the mixture (all at room temperature).


Mix the ingredients, with the help of a spatula, until all are incorporated into the mixture. Once incorporated, move to a table that we previously covered with some flour. Keep kneading until you get an elastic dough (It shouldn’t stick in your hands).


Grease the bowl with oil and add the dough. Cover it with a cloth and let it rest until it doubles its volume.


After one hour (approximately), our dough should be already grown. Knead it gently on the table.


Divide our dough into 6 portions and give it a ball shape.


Place the 6 balls on a baking tray, well separated so that when they grow, they do not stick together. Cover again with a rag and let them lift again.


Once ready, paint them with beaten egg very carefully and sprinkle the seeds to decorate.


Bake our doughs between 10 and 15 minutes with the oven preheated to 200ºC until getting a tan.


Let cool before opening our rolls and put our burger to taste.
