Light And Soft Brioche Slider Buns
Light and soft brioche slider buns that you can eat as a sweet or savory dish.
Sprinkled with seeds, herbs or pretzel salt, they turn into a great burger bun. This time I chose to eat them with veggie halloumi patties, garlic sprouts and a yogurt tahini sauce.
You can also have them as a sweet snack, sprinkled with pearl sugar or filled with chocolate chips, directly incorporated in the dough when shaping.
A quick way to make this brioche is too put it in the freezer for 30 minutes after the first proofing. So you can shape it right away. If you are in no rush, you can leave it in the fridge for 10 hours, it will develop the flavors.
When shaping the brioche slider buns, there is no need to use flour. If the dough sticks too much to the counter, spray a bit of oil on the surface.
You can keep the buns wrapped for a couple of days at room temperature or 6 months in the freezer.
