Hamburger buns are pretty easy to make at home, but it does take a little patience. What they lack in timesaving, though, they make up for in superb flavor. Homemade hamburger buns will taste fresher and better than anything you can find at the grocery store, and if you choose to make them with healthy whole grains, you'll have a leg up on the nutrition factor, too. If you happen to make too many, these buns also make delicious breakfast toast.
