White sesame seeds & egg wash (for a shiny finish)
as many as you want
"A" Tomato slices
as much as you like
"A" Onion (minced)
"A" Meat sauce
While baking the buns in the bread machine, how about making meat sauce and hamburgers?
Of course, store-bought ones are fine, too.
After the first rise, remove from the bread machine and gently press out the air.
Roll into equal sections and let sit for 15 minutes. Divided into 8, the buns will turn out voluminous. Divided into 10, it makes an easy-to-eat size for kids.
After the dough sits, oil the circular mold and make nice round buns.
If you don't have a circular mold on hand, roll the dough into balls, then press slightly on top. Then let them sit for a second rise.
Once they rise, paint with egg wash (I use the egg white), sprinkle on some sesame seeds, then bake at 190℃ for 15 minutes, and they're done.
While baking the buns, make the hamburgers. Shape them into sizes that will fit the buns.
I succeeded in shaping nice buns with and without the circular mold. Using a circular mold gives the buns some height.
Fry up the hamburgers while the buns are cooling.
Once the hamburgers are done, cut the buns in half. Since they're fluffy and soft, wait until they cool down before cutting.
In this order, layer the hamburger, minced onion, meat sauce, and tomato slices (optional), then they're ready to serve.
Top with cheddar cheese to make a cheese burger.
Serve with french fries and onions to make a perfect (?) Mos-Burger-Style hamburger.
Story Behind this Recipe
Our family loves Mos Burger. But when we go as a family, it can get pretty costly. So, it's best to use what we have on hand, and make healthy whole wheat buns. Even my daughter's friend loves them. Try them with ready-made hamburgers or other filling of your choice.
If you bake the buns without using a circular mold, take extra care when forming them. They're beautiful right out of the oven. As long as you divide the dough evenly into 8 to 10 buns, you should be able to bake them all at once. How about a Big Mac size bun for dad?McDonald's anyone?
