Whole Wheat Kaiser Hamburger Buns // Tried and TastyWhen thinking of various ways to prepare a hamburger bun I immediately thought of the Kaiser. I remembered my Rhodes Guest Blog: Kaiser Rolls/Turkey Bacon Avocado Sandwiches from a year or so ago. I also remembered that not too long ago I picked up Rhodes Cracked Wheat Rolls that were hiding somewhere in my freezer. This was my first experience with the cracked wheat rolls and I can tell you right now: I LOVE them! Seriously. They are SO good! Basically, where have they been my whole life? Anyway, follow the photos to see just how easy it is to make your own whole wheat kaiser hamburger buns. These are so delicious you won’t want to buy store bought rolls ever again.

So what is a kaiser anyway? Here’s the skinny: “a round, soft bread roll with a crisp crust, made by folding the corners of a square of dough into the center, resulting in a pinwheel shape when baked.” I am a huge fan of pretty food. These rolls end up with the prettiest design when baked up! Best part about it? They are easier than you think to make! Just watch!

All you have to do is thaw your rolls, but make sure they are still cold. Don’t thaw them too much. Depending on the size of rolls you want, you will either want to use one Texas roll, or combine 2-4 regular sized rolls.

Combine rolls and roll into a 12-inch rope. Tie each rope into an overhand knot. Bring one end of the dough over the top and tuck down into the middle. Bring the other end of the dough through the center, going the opposite way.

Place on a large sprayed baking sheet or Silpat lined. If desired, brush with egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake at 350°F 10-15 minutes (longer if you use more rolls).

Once your rolls have cooled, slice them in half with a bread knife and you’re ready to assemble your favorite burger. I’m so excited to be entering the grilling season! Stay tuned for SO many great recipes, it’s going to be a delicious summer!

    Just looking at your pictures of kaiser rolls makes me hungry! I tried to make a batch of whole wheat hamburger buns and they turned out very dense and hard. I think I will find more luck starting with a frozen dough like you have here. We’ll see how this goes. Thanks for the info!
