Burgers with Dan Lepard's slider buns


These buns are intriguing. It's a good thing the introduction says "Don't be afraid of the custard powder" because without that I would have been very, very scared of the custard powder! It just sounds so bizarre, to make a pot of Bird's then mix in the flour and salt, but I know by now not to doubt Dan Lepard and these buns really are excellent.

We were just having burgers for dinner at home, so I made large buns, not dainty little slider buns. I also didn't have an egg so I glazed them with milk.

My burger patties were made from an equal quantity of bison mince and 12% fat beef mince, with a little chopped garlic and salt and pepper mixed in. I usually just do salt and pepper, but Paul particularly wanted garlic in them. They certainly don't need anything else added.

I split the buns, piled in some shredded lettuce and topped with a cooked burger, with some mature cheddar melted on, and a good spoonful of chilli relish.


These beautiful burgers are going over to Deb for the next Souper (Soup, Salad and Sandwich) Sunday. They were a delicious sandwich treat!

I know what you mean about the custard powder - I nearly ate the custard instead of making the buns! Great recipe though - yours look fab. I thought they were very soft and moist, but dense enough to soak up burger juices (not that I had burgers in mine!).

Steve - have a lovely Christmas!

C - they were an excellent burger! I didn't shape all the dough into round buns, I used some as hotdog buns, which were also very good.

Hmm custard powder...I wonder if we even have that here? The buns look great though!

Those look like a perfect bun! Though I have to laugh when I first saw your title I though it said "Burgers with Def Lepard"

holy. crow. i LOVE burgers, and that last shot is glorious. the buns look great--so fat and fluffy that i'd have to unhinge my jaw to get a bite into my mouth...and that's okay. :)

Joanne - it's basically corn starch!

Kat - they are probably the best burger bun I have tried.

Grace - it was everything you want in a burger!

Now normally I think the bun on a burger is just a holder for all the good stuff in between--but these buns are the star of the show--they are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing them with Souper Sundays. ;-)
