Hamburger Buns

Really? Yep, really.

Totally off subject, I notice that I talk to myself a lot when I blog. Back to the buns.

After my post on Friday I had a hankering for hamburgers. I'm pretty sure my husband did too. We bought a quarter of a cow this past autumn, so we have plenty of ground beef to make this happen! I don't like to spend money if I don't have to, so I looked in my freezer to figure out if I had something that could work for the buns. I was in luck! Frozen rolls.

Rhode's frozen rolls and breads are fabulous. My grandma makes the best rolls every Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Mother's Day...pretty much occasion the family gets together for. She uses Rhode's frozen bread dough. Maybe I'll share the recipe with you one day.

So I did the fast thaw method for a dozen rolls. I love leftovers. Back to the buns. Again. So I made the rolls as hamburger buns. My mom asked me why. I said because I had them. Simple enough! They were amazing!!!! Literally, the best tasting hamburger buns ever.

And the best part? They were extremely cheap!!!!! I paid $.99 for a bag of 36. That means each dozen cost $.33. Amazing! And they were delicious! My husband's new favorite. We will never go back to store bought hamburger buns. Unless we have a massive group of people over.

How did I get them for a dollar? Well, pretty simple. The rolls were on sale for $2.99, after my coupon they were less than $1. Here in Tulsa there is a store that doubles coupons up to and including $1. That means a $1 coupon turns into $2 off the product! Their policy can get a bit tricky, so if you're a coupon newbie, keep it simple.

Educate yourself on your local grocery stores' coupon policies. Coupons stretch your budget dollars!!!


  1. I've never used the Rhodes rolls, but I have used their frozen loaf of bread dough, thawed it out, divided it and made fabulous hamburger buns that way too!

  2. I have used their loaf for pizza dough (before we went homemade) and an amazing braided breakfast pastry. I may have to find that again now.
