Potato Buns (Bread Machine)

“This is a simple potato bread recipe, mixed in a bread machine, that makes one dozen hot dog or hamburger buns, or could be used for rolls. The crust bakes very light brown, and the bread has a very smooth texture inside. These are egg-, milk-, and soy-free, which is nearly impossible to find in store-bought buns. These freeze very well for later use, and pre-sliced frozen buns defrost easily in a toaster or microwave. Preparation time assumes 5 minute ingredient assembly, 50 minute single-rise dough cycle, 5 minute dough shaping, and 15 minute rise.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add the ingredients in order to bread machine pan.
  2. Set on dough setting.
  3. After first rise, remove dough (do not let it rise a second time in the machine!).
  4. Divide dough into 12 equal parts (or more, depending on the size bun you need).
  5. To shape hot dog buns: roll dough between hands until roughly the diameter and length of a hot dog.
  6. To shape hamburger buns: flatten dough ball into roughly the shape of a hamburger.
  7. Place shaped dough on a large baking sheet that has been covered with parchment paper. This makes for very easy removal and clean up!
  8. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  9. Allow dough to rise for 15 minutes while oven preheats.
  10. Bake buns for 15-20 minutes, or until tops turn light golden brown.
  11. Allow buns to cool slightly before slicing.
  12. Buns may be frozen.
  13. To defrost, toast in a bagel-friendly toaster or microwave for approximately 20 seconds.
