    Yum, I made a version of this recipe a few months ago and we absolutely loved them! Love the idea of adding cheese on top!

    Oh man, just found what I’m making tomorrow. I don’t think they’ll get used as buns though, because by the time they are done lunch will be over and I have a hard time thinkin’ they’ll last until the next lunch. Mmm. Maybe hot ham and swiss for dinner though?! I’m sold.

    So, does this recipe only make 4 hamburger buns? Not both hotdog and hamburger? Should I separate the dough into 4 pieces when making hamburger buns?

      Hi Melissa, it does make 8 hamburger buns. Sorry for that error, I’ve corrected it!

    Made these today, they were awesome! One question though, how do you get them from the baking sheet to the boiling water without having them deflate some? When you touch proofed dough it tends to fall. I love your site! My whole family loved the flavor of these rolls!
