Jumbo Hamburger Buns

My Grandma Rita's Butter Rolls recipe makes wonderful bread. Not just because it came from my Grandma, but because:

You could probably shape the rolls into any kind of roll you like.The roll recipe is a quick riser in that it takes 30 minutes for the first rise and 30 minutes for the second rise.The rolls stay soft for days.The dough is so easy to work with. You won't have a tug-a-war with this dough.These rolls work at any altitude.

I blogged about my Grandma Rita's Rolls awhile back and Baking Nana graciously helped me bring these rolls to life.

See below for related blogs.

The recipe makes 12 Jumbo Hamburger Buns or you could make them smaller if you like. I baked them at 375 degrees F.  for 20-25 minutes (higher temperature due to high altitude.) If  you don't have to worry about high altitude, bake at 350 degrees F. for 20-25 minutes.

Jumbo Hamburger Buns Right Out of the Oven. I brushed the tops with butter for a softer crust.

Jumbo Hamburger Buns- Grandma Rita's Butter Roll Recipe

I was making Baking Nana's Coleslaw and I accessed the Recipe Buzz. I got so many wonderful suggestions. Hildog suggested the following:

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

The Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken was great. The recipe asked for 6 boneless chicken breasts. Since I only had medium sized chicken breasts I had to use 9 chicken breasts to make this recipe. I added diced onion per one reviewer's notes.  I would suggest checking out the reviews so that the recipe suits your particular fancy. My family gobbled it up.

KFC Coleslaw Knockoff By Baking Nana

Baking Nana's recipe is so wonderful. If you a craving for KFC Coleslaw, try this recipe. 

I just had to share because a couple of months ago I couldn't bake a bun like this to save my life.

My Grandma Rita's Butter Roll Recipe has not been published yet by the powers that be here on AR. So if you like this recipe I would suggest saving the link to your recipe box. If you use the AR search for the recipe- just like Baking Nana's coleslaw recipe you won't find it.

Wow - thank you so much. Congratulations on mastering this bread. Isn't yeast addictive? I am glad you like the KFC Coleslaw recipe. I didn't submit it for publication because it isn't 'my' recipe. Still, I am glad to share it with everyone.

It all looks so good! I just looked at all the photos being posted today and I think I've gained a couple pounds, I know I need to wipe my keyboard off from drooling all over it. Great Blog beautiful food!

Lela, your photos are all beautiful. Your grandma Rita would be proud. I will try the rolls soon but I will need you to hold my hand. Thanks for sharing again...you are blogging so often now and I'm enjoying dropping by regularly. :)

Baking Nana-you have greatly inspired me! Yes, yeast is addictive!

Sherri-Thanks. I love looking at the photos. Today, I am eating light. LOL!

Hello-Allie. These are so easy to make. If I can make them, you can make them. See B Nana's blog-Lela, this is for you. That is where I started. B Nana has wonderful photos to help you make rolls. As far as the blogging-I try for once a week. However, if I feel the need to blog-I just throw it out there. Thanks, see you on the Buzz!

Thanks for sharing... I've saved the bread rec to my file! I'll be trying it out soon!

Yum! Those rolls look terrific! It looks like the week to do coleslaw (Candice also has it going). I'm going back now to save your recipe for the rolls.

Stevie-nice to see you here and you are welcome. I added the menu above.

Hi, Marianne. I think the cabbage was looking good in the produce department this week. That's why I bought it. Of course, when Baking Nana posts-Everybody Listens! LOL!
Mar. 11, 2012 2:20 pm
Isn't that the truth about Baking Nana!
Mar. 12, 2012 3:58 pm
Mmm...I want to try these! My husband loves hamburgers but for some reason we always seem to forget to buy the buns. So, maybe I'll just try making my own. :)
Mar. 12, 2012 5:32 pm
Hi Christian. You can also make these into regular size hamburger buns. I think maybe 16 buns. For some reason, my family likes the big buns. Also, I freeze some since we can't all 12 buns. Then pull them out, when we need them.

Lela, those rolls look devine! I keep saying I'm going to tackle bread making. Someday, I will. You're inspiring me to really think seriously about giving these rolls a try.

Hi Candice-roll back a few months in my life to October 2011. I made these really flat rolls. Then, I joined AR and turned Blue. I wrote a blog and Baking Nana came to the rescue. Check out my blogs above-I followed her instructions and voila-I made some really great rolls. However, you do have to have my Grandma's recipe-because I tried tons of recipes and they don't taste as good as my Grandma's recipe. Seriously, Candice-try making some rolls.

About Me
I enjoy cooking for our family sit down dinners. Although my kids are grown, we are a close family that enjoys 4-5 sit down dinners a week together. My family's favorite dinner is chicken enchiladas smothered in green chili. I have a passion for cooking, baking for the holidays and food photography.
My favorite things to cook
I am family oriented and spend time with my family enjoying meals. My favorite things to cook are Mexican food and any food my family asks me to cook. My family looks forward to home cooked Mexican food at least once a week and Italian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am on a journey to reclaim family recipes that were lost when the cooks in my family passed away. Cooking traditions are a major part of my passion for cooking. On Christmas Eve, we always had green chili and tamales. Cookie baking, lemon bars, pizzelles , and potica have been a must at Christmas as long as I can remember. My family looks forward to homemade pizza, when we gather as a family to decorate the Christmas cookies. Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without noodles and gravy piled high on mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and broccoli and rice casserole. On the 4th of July, there is the 4th of July Potato Salad that I make using 10 pounds of potatoes. Mexican Food is part of our weekly menu--green chili served over mashed potatoes or as a slopper (green chili poured over hamburgers.) I am always making tortillas for someone. They call my tortillas little white pieces of gold. Saturdays are Family night for dinner. It is the one day my kids can request a meal.
My cooking triumphs
Seeking help on the Buzz and the AR Blog has resulted in a few triumphs. I am extremely ecstatic about overcoming the yeast monster. I can now bake baguettes, focaccia and the best rolls in the world, my Grandma Rita's Butter Rolls.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempts at baking bread/rolls resulted in rock hard flat rolls. However, I am improving. Baking at High Altitude is somewhat of a challenge.
