Sweet Tea Oven-Fried Chicken Sliders w/Jalapeño Cheddar Corn Slaw + Crispy Onions.
Welp, it’s bun’s season, and we’ve got some good ones…Salted Honey Butter Cornbread Brioche Burger Buns.
And by buns, I do obviously mean the ones for your burger.
I know that making burger buns is just an extra step, but for me, it’s a step worth taking. Living where I live, the bread selection is honestly not that awesome, so when looking for burger buns my choices are pretty much confined to the white ones my brothers love.
Those buns work really well for plain burgers with cheese and ketchup, or this burger, where all you need a simple kid bun. But when making burgers with some um – attitude, like these, these and oh definitely these. You are going to want to compliment them with a really good bun.
The bottom line, every good burger needs a worthy bun.
So I thought, what goes better with cookout foods than cornbread? It’s just a classic summer cookout staple. With Memorial Day being barely over a week away, it was time to start breaking out the cookout recipes.
These buns are the perfect final accessory to almost any burger. You can leave off the salted honey butter if you want a more savory burger, but the honey pairs really nicely if you are doing a spicy burger or possibly even a southern burger. It’s totally up to you.
Trust me though, being able to resist eating these straight out of the oven with a pat of the salted honey butter takes some willpower. If you are a bread lover, I would definitely recommend making extra. Actually, you could even serve them as dinner rolls if you happen to have any leftover the next night. Oh, or toast them with um, more butter, and fresh blueberries for breakfast?? YUM. So many options here.
They are pretty quick and easy to make. You can either use your hands to knead the dough or use a dough hook if your mixer has one. I went with my mixer because I was making multiple things at the same time on this day and I really needed my hands. This is why I love my mixer, it gives me my hands to keep on working!

Let’s make burgers!
I made these and really liked them. However, none of us liked them with burgers. They were great plain (I think I might make them for the holidays as my dinner roll instead of my usual recipe) and I later made turkey sandwiches with them and loved them (turkey, cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayo). I may have to try it as a loaf to slice for sandwiches too.
I was amazed to read through some of the comments with all the issues people were having. I had no problems. I did do one thing different, I only did the second rise for 30 minutes (I’d lost the browser tab I had the recipe open in and was too lazy to reopen it so I just went with my usual roll rise time, which is 30 minutes.)
Happy Friday!! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was a hit, thanks a bunch for giving it a go! Sorry you didn’t enjoy these with burgers!? xT
I just made this recipe and had the same result as the majority of the comments. The initial rise was ok but the 2nd rise ended in 8 flat pancakes. Super disappointed to have this result.
Thanks for giving the recipe a try, so sorry to hear you had issues. Was there anything you adjusted in the recipe? What kind of yeast did you use? Did you allow them to rise in a warm spot in your kitchen? That is really key! Let me know!! xTieghan
