Whole Wheat Hamburger Rolls

These rolls are amazing... they have the texture and everything of hamburger rolls! They go together in less than 1 hour and are delicious. Thanks, Lynn -- you've done it again.

40-Minute Whole Wheat Hamburger Rolls - Lynn's Kitchen Adventure

1.5 T yeast
1 C + 1 T warm water
1/3 C oil (I used just a little less)
1/4 C sugar (I used less)
1 egg
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 C whole wheat flour
1 1/2 C flour + 1/2 C (as needed)

Dissolve yeast in water. Then, add sugar and oil and allow the yeast mix to rest for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, lightly beat the egg, and add to it salt; stirring to combine.

Add egg mix to the yeast mixture and stir. Slowly add in the flour.

Knead dough, adding enough so that the dough is smooth and elastic. DO NOT LET RISE :)

Cut the dough into 12 (if you want large-sized rolls), or 16 (if you want smaller rolls) sections and roll into balls (hamburger rolls) or logs (brat/hot dog rolls).

I'm still not excellent at shaping these, but they tasted great nonetheless!

Place the rolls on a lightly greased cookie sheet and cover. Let rise/rest for 10-30 minutes. I let mine rise for about 30, allowing them to puff up a bit more (since I opted to make 6 hot dog rolls and 10 hamburger rolls).

Bake at 425 for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned.


  1. Oh nice! I'm going to have to try these out when my oven gets fixed/parts come in (no oven since Mother's Day really a pain).

    Looks like you have another winner here. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks. I am glad you liked them.

  3. We're having a bbq this weekend so I might try these out. I have a few recipes I like to use but I always like trying out new ones to see if I can find something better!

  4. My family would LOVE these! Homemade bread is always so much better than store bought.

  5. I'm going to try this, I struggle to make bread well, but this looks like something I could do! Thank you!

  6. These look great! I tried them tonight and I needed to add more than a 1/2 C extra flour, because the dough was still sticky when kneading, very difficult to remove from the hand...so I kept adding flour little by little. I hope I did not add too much to make them hard and chewy...:) They are now baking:) Thanks for the great recipe!

  7. Update on the rolls: they smell amazing while baking and they were so good! Matt loved them and I think I got myself in a problem because he is hinting that home-made bread is great and it would be wonderful more often, hehe...:)) Thanks again for recipe!

  8. Again, just the recipe I've been looking for. Can you read my mind? Thanks for the recipe and helpful tips from fellow readers who posted a comment.

  9. These are the BEST wheat rolls I have ever made! They're light and fluffy and melt in your mouth - and the best part is they're super fast! I made them into hotdog buns and used them for toasted meat & cheese sandwiches. Scrumptious!

  10. I love them. Me and my smal boy we did buns yestarday and they were great.
    I repost it on my blog thank you http://slovakmama.blogspot.com/2010/01/novy-recept-doma-urobene-celozrnne.html

  11. I tried these today and turned out great! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I posted about it on my blog.

  12. We made these tonight and they were fantastic! They did not rise a whole lot, maybe 50% more. Our 16 hamburger buns were "slider" size. We'll be making them again!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
