Easy homemade hamburger buns that have no high fructose corn syrup and are much better than the store bought kind!
Before we found out about Jack’s fructose intolerance, I was kind of oblivious to how many food items contained fructose, and more specifically, high fructose corn syrup. I knew that a lot of jams and juices did, but beyond that, I had no idea. Then, I had to become like a hawk when it comes to reading food labels, and I’ve been blown away. Especially when I discovered that so many kinds of bread have it!
Last week, we were going to a barbeque at my brother and sister-in-law’s house, and my mom asked me to get some hamburger buns. Well, I searched high and low, and could not find a single brand that didn’t have high fructose corn syrup. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands, and make my own.
Honestly, I don’t know if I can ever go back to store bought hamburger buns. These buns were so tasty and could easily be eaten just as rolls! I loved the combination of white and wheat, though you can change what type of flour you use depending on your personal preference. I also added in minced and sauteed onions, which I thought was a nice touch, but can easily be omitted as well.
In the end, I was glad that I was “forced” to make my own hamburger buns. Jack’s food intolerance makes us all a little more healthy. And really, isn’t homemade anything usually better, anyways?
