  1. Combine ingredients in bread machine on dough cycle. When dough is finished with first rise, divide dough into 8 pieces and shape each piece into a flattened ball. Place the buns on a greased baking sheet, cover, and let rise 40 minutes, until they're quite puffy.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Bake the buns for 12 minutes, until they're golden brown. Remove them from the oven and cool them on a rack. Split and use for burger or sandwiches. For burgers, butter the split sides and fry them, buttered side down, until they are golden brown and warmed through.
