Chipotle Hamburger Buns

I love to make hamburger buns. I think I have tried 3 different recipes from this blog--and adapted them all to the bread maker! We loved these. We served them with the Chicago Style Italian Beef.

Chipotle Hamburger Buns
Adapted to bread maker from

3/4 cup very warm water, divided
1 pkg yeast
2 Tbsp sugar
4 Tbsp melted butter, divided
1 large egg
2 chipotles, chopped + 2-3 Tbsp adobo sauce (from canned chipotles)Beth used 2.5 t total
3 - 4 cups flour
1 1/4 tsp salt
Sesame seeds

Beth notes:  I put all ingredients in the bread maker according to my machine’s instruction.

  1. Put 1/2 cup water into the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the dough hook and stir in the sugar. Sprinkle 1 package of yeast over top and let rest 10 minutes.
  2. Add 2 Tbsp melted butter, egg, chopped chipotles, adobo sauce, and remaining 1/4 cup water.
  3. Add 3 cups flour and salt and turn mixer on to low.
  4. Knead 5-7 minutes, until dough comes together and forms a soft, smooth ball. (Dough should clean the sides of the bowl, add additional flour if necessary.)
  5. Cover the dough, and let it rise for 1 to 2 hours, or until doubled.
  6. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and divide it into 8 equal pieces. Beth made 10
  7. Shape each piece into a round ball and flatten with your palm to 3 inches across. Place the buns on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet, cover, and let rise for an hour.
  8. Preheat oven to 375.
  9. Brush the buns with 1/2 Tbsp of the melted butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  10. Bake 15 - 18 minutes, until golden.
  11. Remove them from the oven, and brush with the remaining melted butter.
  12. Let buns cool before slicing.
