Mama’s Basic Hamburger Bun Recipe with 4 Variations!

Mama’s Gluten Free Basic Hamburger Buns with 4 Variations!  ~Dairy Free & Egg Free Option 


Summer means BBQ and BBQ means Burgers and Burgers mean we need good tasting Gluten Free Buns. Mama made Onion Buns from Mama’s Basic Hamburger Bun Recipe. Mama’s Basic Hamburger Bun recipe can be made as just a Basic Bun or add your favorite toppings like Sesame Seeds, Poppy Seeds, Herbs, or Mama’s favorite Onion Buns.

To make the buns, you can use 4 inch cake pans by Wilton. They come in packs of three and you will need at least 6 pans, available at Amazon.com or stores like Micheal’s or Target.

Or you can use mini quiche pans that are at least 4-5 inches in width. I bought my ceramic mini quiche pans at a store called World Market, and you can order them online; www.worldmarket.com. In the picture you will see buns made with both pans. I made Poppy Seed buns using the 4 inch cake pans and I made the Onion Buns using the quiche pans. The quiche pans were a little wider, making for a thinner yet wider bun which, I think we liked better than the other pan which were a little on the thicker side, however, both work great. I hope you enjoy this delicious and easy to make hamburger bun all season long.

      I don’t have the nutritional info for each recipe. On the back of our bag, which is in our store you can see the nutritional information for the actual Gluten Free Flour Blend

    Oh, I had not thought to make my own hamburger buns before! Recently, I have been making my own bread, but making a homemade bun for my homemade patties would be so cool! I could probably start a food truck or something if I can get them to turn out.

    Actually, it says the same thing for the poppy seeds bun too!

    I&#39;m a little confused. You have sesame seeds listed twice, once for the sesame buns and once for the herb buns. Is there something else that you use for the herb buns, or is this correct?<br />
