Quick Brioche Burger Buns and Hot Dog Rolls

Sometimes you need a bun fast, and if it's already afternoon, and you are planning on putting some burgers or hot dogs on the grill later that day, there is no time for slow rising dough, something has to be done quickly. I had this problem recently and came up with this "you can make this in a few hours" brioche rolls.

  • 380 g AP flour 90.5%
  • 40 g white whole wheat flour 9.5%
  • 300 ml warm milk (100F) 71.4%
  • 70 g melted butter 16.7%
  • 12 g sugar 2.86%
  • 8 g salt 1.9%
  • 7 g instant yeast 1.67%
  • 1 large egg 11.9%


  • 1 egg plus 1 tsp milk for egg wash
  • sesame seeds


  1. Mix all the dough ingredients on low until combined, then for about 7 minutes on medium until the dough comes together. This is a very sticky dough.

  2. Cover the mixing bowl and let rise for about 1 hour in a warm spot (e.g. in the oven with the oven light on), or until doubled in size.

  3. Preheat oven to 425F

  4. Divide the dough into 70g pieces and either shape into a ball, or a short "rope" the length of a hot dog. Place the shaped pieces on parchment paper, cover and let rise for about 30 minutes (or until doubled in size). 

  5. Brush on egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  6. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown.
