What are the best rolls for homemade hamburgers?  Grinding the meat makes a great burger but what about the bread?

    +1 on Ciabatta, or a nice crusty style Kaiser. 
    not sure if they have them where you are in NY, but check for Portuguese rolls.
    or even toasted onion roll.

    boy do I love hearty crusty bread.

    @LS, I didn't cry...... It's my allergies.


    Seriously, I think I took good bread for granted.

    +3 on the Ciabatta Rolls, and for the healthy members they also make a "Five Grain Ciabatta Roll" which is very good --  even for unhealthy members like me!

    On a related note...I happened to notice that Kings Hawaiian offers hot dog buns now.  They appear to be the new england style, which I am excited about trying.  Alas, I am off bread for a while   :((


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Krispy Kreme donuts!

    Alas no bread for me still. A hamburger patty without the bread just aint't the same.

    I should not be eating the bread either.  This is for Mother's day as mom is craving a REAL hamburger.

    I like a bun that can handle the juices from the burger, the bacon, the cheese, and the pickle... and more juices from the burger. 
    I usually use an onion kaiser or ciabatta (or something similar).

    I have the grinder attachment for the KitchenAid, so at some point I want to make home made buns and then grind my own burgers.  I haven't done this yet, but I was thinking of trying a recipe such as:

    Pillsbury Grands biscuits (the ones with layers, not the buttermilk) pulled right out of the oven are hard to beat, melts in your mouth & works great with homeground burgers; a second choice would be a toasted Thomas' English muffin
