Last time I made my own burger buns they ended up being too thick so this time I was happy when the dough was runny and they flattened out. I used the brioche recipe in the TM5 and changed it slightly. I also used the Thermomix to mix my ground beef and ingredients keeping my hands clean except for shaping the meat into patties. Homemade burgers taste so much better then pre-made store bought or even frozen patties. It really doesn't take a lot of time to do them yourself. That way you know whats in your burger too.
