Let's dive right into these delicious tasting cornbread buns, shall we? These buns came about when we were wanting a southern style burger. Naturally, we thought of cornbread as the bun but we love the texture and softness of a traditional yeast bun - you know, those buns you typically use for a burger.
In our experience, there's nothing worse than taking your first bite out of a burger and having it crumble apart as is often the case with many cornbreads and biscuit-based sandwiches. So as one does, we decided to take the best of both worlds, resulting in these buns that retain the texture of a yeast bun but have the flavor of cornbread. They are soft and moldable which allows for absorption of toppings or fillings. A win-win!
We love these cornbread brioche buns so much! We've had a few private catering events recently and these have been one of the favorites to include on the menus. They make the best buns for a burger, a pulled pork sandwich or just a dinner roll (my personal fave!). Here's what you'll need to make them:
Though making buns from scratch might seem a little daunting at first, we can't recommend it enough! Give them a try and perfect them so that you're ready for those summer grilling days.
