light brioche hamburger buns

light brioche hamburger buns

Now that it’s officially BBQ season, I thought it would be fun to make homemade hamburger buns.

We like our burgers on brioche-style rolls and this recipe looked like a good starting place.

Before I begin, I will tell you that this brioche is lighter than the traditional kind that I’m used to (hence the title). It’s still fluffy and moist, but not quite as eggy and rich. Even the color is a bit lighter. We thought that it was the perfect vessel for a juicy burger and would be great for sandwiches too!
