This week's recipe has been all over the internet! We are talking about Joshua Weissman Burger Buns Recipe.
Accordingly to Joshua, this recipe was created by accident. Originally, this recipe was developed specifically as a dinner roll, but after a small tweak and some experimentation with elements of other recipes, it turned out that it could be used to make nearly any kind of bun.
