Spent Grain Burger Buns

The perfect bun is the foundation for an amazing burger. Firm enough to hold everything in one place, but soft enough to give when you bite into it. Beyond the basics, what we love about this burger bun is that it’s made with spent grain, which means the ideal pairing of beer and burgers just became an even better match.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Spent Grain Flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 packet dry-active yeast
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
