  • 4 Cups Warm Water
  • 1 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Honey
  • 3/4 Cup Instant Mashed Potatoes or real mashed potatoes
  • 6 Tbsp Saf Yeast yes, tablespoons
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 Tbsp Sea Salt
  • 8+ Cups Flour (I use a mix of Spelt & Einkorn)


  • Mix water, oil, honey, mashed potatoes and yeast in a large bowl or stand mixer. Allow to rest for 10-15 minutes.
  • Add remaining ingredients, plus enough flour to make a firm dough. It's better to be too firm than too soft. Allow to rise until doubled.
  • Roll out to half the desired thickness of finished bun.  Cut into rounds using a cookies cutter, biscuit cutter, measuring cup etc.. whatever size you want your buns
  • Place on greased cookie sheets and allow to rise 10-15 minutes.
  • Bake in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes.  Cool, slice and enjoy a juice hamburger!  Also makes great sandwich buns.
