IMG_4490With summer soon coming to an end, I couldn’t see a better reason to enjoy the outdoors with a homemade burger, perfect for this week’s Fiesta Friday #82 too!

The recipe for the Bread comes from my fellow lovely lady Elaine. I made her Loaf this week, and since it was so good, I decided to use the same recipe to make my buns for my Chicken Burgers!

A huge thanks to our amazing host, Angie from The Novice Gardener, and to our co-host’s for this week Sarah @ Sarah’s Little Kitchen and Kaila @ GF Life 24/7.

Serve: 4 large burgers

Ingredients: (for the bread)

See Elaine’s recipe.


  1. Flour a baking tray.
  2. Divide the dough into 4 equals parts.
  3. Shape into smooth round balls and place them on the floured baking tray (do not forget to leave a little space between them).
  4. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and allow them to rise 1 hour.
  5. After 1 hour, brush each bread with a mix of milk (1 tbsp) and one egg yolk.
  6. Preheat the oven to 210C degrees.
  7. Sprinkle each bread with roasted sesame seeds.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes (more or less depending on your oven).
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

    The buns look so professional, I can’t believe you made them! The chicken sandwiches must taste amazing on the homemade bread. Saving this to try someday when I am feeling brave!
