These Buns are fairly easy to make and are perfect for Burgers. They are soft and mildly sweet and rich in taste with butter and egg in it.
I made chicken and veggie burgers using these buns are they were loved by everyone.

In a medium size bowl, add water, yeast and little bit of sugar, stir and let it proof for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, Add all purpose flour, water, sugar, salt and yeast. Knead well to make a soft, smooth dough.
Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a wet cloth and let it rise for 1 to 2 hours where the dough should be double the size.
Gently punch the dough, divide it into 8 equal pieces. Shape them into a round ball, flatten to 3 inch across. Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet, cover and let them rise for about an hour until they are puffy.

Remove them from the oven, brush a little more melted butter and let them cool on a rack.
