When my trusty Gourmet cookbook said, "Yes, homemade hamburger buns are SO worth the effort." I wasn't convinced. So, I made a batch of Asher-safe ones (without whole milk and without eggs); good, but not worth the effort.
Then, I had the real ones at a friend's house, and yes, they are worth the effort--especially since this recipe makes 20 (or 5 meals at my house). And, we don't just use them for hamburgers. They make for delicious egg salad sandwiches, black bean burgers, grilled chicken sandwiches, etc.
