Homemade Hamburger

Saw this from Vivian's site (for the burger bun) and here (for the patties)
We had this as our dinner - what a good feeling to eat homemade stuff, especially knowing that out there, this meal is considered junk :)

If you see the bun in the picture below is square shape, I put them too close to each other during proofing, they ended up sticking one another, so I had to pull them apart and cos of that, their shape turned square instead xixixi....

What you need:

For the burger buns:

300g bread flour
15g sugar
4.5g salt
1 1/2 tsp instant yeast
190ml water
15g shortening

Using breadmaker:
Pour water into bread pan followed by flour, sugar, salt and yeast lastly
Set into dough cycle and let it do the kneading for 5minutes before you put in shortening in it
Let the machine continued - approx 1hr 30mins
Take out dough from the pan and put on lightly foured surface
Punch and knead for awhile to let the air bubbles out
Divide dough into 8 parts and shape into balls, arrange on lightly greased baking pan
Proof for 15minutes, after that flatten slightly and then proof again for another 30minutes
Brush with milk just before putting them in the oven
Bake at 190degC for 12minutes

For the burger patties:

400g minced chicken (or pork)
1 medium onion - diced finely
4 tbsp breadcrumbs
1 egg
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tbsp spice (I used mixture of parsley and oregano)

Put all ingredients in mixing bowl - stir til well incorporated and very sticky
Divide into 8 portions , shape and chill in the fridge for a few hours
Heat up oil on non stick pan, pan fry the patties both sides on medium fire til cooked

Note: these patties can be made ahead and kept in the freezer for months

How to serve:
Cut burger bun opened, put 1 sliced cheese on 1 side and toast for a few minutes
Place on a serving plate, lay iceberg lettuce, a slice of tomato, and the patty
I add honey mustard sauce on top of the meat and also bottled chilli sauce
Close the bun and open your mouth wide *grin*
