Easy Charcoal Burger Buns


Easy Charcoal Burger Buns

I am totally not sure why nobody is talking about how easy it is to make burger buns at home.

These buns not only add a unique visual appeal to your burgers, but they also add a subtle smoky flavour.

Plus, making them at home allows you to control the ingredients and ensure they are fresh and preservative-free.

All you need is some basic ingredients, and a little bit of time and effort.

These will IMPRESS your family and friends, so why isn't anyone talking about it?

Maybe it's time to spread the word and give it a try!
