Hamburger Brioche Buns

We always have been fans using brioche buns for good burgers. At our BBQ Dinner together with Gernekochen, Izzy Moose and Baconzumsteak we had the opportunity to bake our own ones because we thought it would be a really good idea to combine them with pulled pork.


Thomas brought his smoker to our balcony and smoked his delicious polled pork in it for hours. And we can assure it was the perfect combination! Many thanks to Thomas for that marvelous co-operation!!


As we did not eat all the buns we topped them with our Johannisbeer-Thymian-Gelee (currant jelly).

30 g sugar

10 g salt

80 g butter, melted

500 g all purpose flour


and additionally:

1 egg

2 tbsp water

2 tbsp milk


  • mix water and milk in a large bowl and dissolve the yeast therein
  • add all other ingredients (until flour) and knead for 10 minutes until dough is smooth
  • let the dough rise for 60 minutes at a warm place covered by a kitchen towel
  • devide into 12 pieces
  • set 1 piece with the hollow palm to lightly floured surface and roll the dough, by circular movements to a ball 
  • place the balls to a baking tray lined with baking parchment
  • let them rise for another 45 minutes also covered by a kitchen towel
  • preheat oven to 200°C
  • in a glass mix 1 egg with water and milk and spread the surface of the buns
  • sprinkle with sesame and bake for 16 minutes
  • cool them down on a cake rack

Should you do not need so many buns, you may freeze and store them until your next BBQ party. To thaw them place them into the oven and only then heat it to 150°C for 10 minutes. They will be as fresh as freshly baked ones!

The taste of our brioche buns is not comparable with supermarket buns and it is not really difficult to prepare them. So you always should have a storage of them in you freezer ;-)


For tomorrow we want to tease you a little bit, because our friends of Gernekochen will show you their new recipe of cumeo butter with shrimps. So please don't forget to visit them ...!
