Best Barbecue Buns in the World

Updated on October 27, 2015

Making healthy snacks for the kids after school is a wonderful thing and the kids have fun making these snacks. It can be a little messy, but that can be the best part.

BBQ Buns make great afternoon snacks for the kids. Just warm them up and the kids have a healthy homemade snack that both the kids and parents enjoy.

Over the years it has taken me awhile to get where I am today. I have burned, not cooked it long enough and had some major epic failures. That is what I call learning, if only my children would see it the same way!!!! It took me a long to be willing to make these for my kids but after I made my first batch, it really wasn't all that scary.

I am not a baker, and my bread making skills sometimes are very questionable but I went ahead and tried them. The very first time I made these BBQ Buns, I cheated!!! I used frozen bread rolls from the store. They were ok but the bread recipe in this blog as such a sweet melt in your mouth taste that I just had to try to make the dough myself. I like to use my bread machine so that it is in a controlled temperature and seems to rise better. I only use my bread machine on the dough setting!!!!

I put my kids to work when I make these and I think they do a better job at rolling the cheese and meat into the dough than I do. I love my kids helping me in the kitchen as it teaches them how to cook and clean (the least favorite part of cooking!!!!) and we get to spend enjoyable quality time together. And well to be honest, its fun getting a little on the messy side with the flour!!! It also gives my kids a sense of satisfaction for making something they enjoy eating from scratch and that is the best part.



  • 5 cups Flour
  • 2 packs Yeast
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 pound hamburger meat
  • 1 bottle Favorite BBQ Sauce
  • Velveeta Cheese
  1. Warm milk, water, olive oil, sugar and salt to about 110 degrees
  2. Mix in 2 cups flour with yeast
  3. Add warmed liquid mix to the 2 cups flour - mix well
  4. slowly add remaining 3 cups flour until mixed well. Let sit for an hour or so in a warm place until the yeast has risen.
  5. While dough is raising, brown hamburger meat (I use deer or elk hamburger meat). Drain any excess fat from meat and add barbecue sauce about 1 1/2 cups but it depends on how your taste buds, taste test to get the desired amount. - let cool to room temperature.
  6. Once dough is ready, take a small ball and roll out flat into a pancake shape. Add a small cube of Velveeta Cheese and hamburger mixture to the middle of the pancake. Wrap up and pinch together the ends to make a ball
  7. Cook at 350 for about 15 to 20 minutes - take out and let cool and enjoy

Are you a hunter or does someone in your family like to go hunting. I am not a big fan of hamburger meat, even though I really do love red meat, so I like using Elk or Deer hamburger meat instead. Some of you may not like the taste of the wild game but when processed right it has a wonderful different flavor than regular hamburger.

And yes, I'm sure of you reading this will be offended by this, but in my personal opinion, if you are a hunter or eat wild game, as long as the wild game is used for food instead of just a trophy then I don't have a problem with it. I have and will continue to hunt wild game, but I don't hunt for a trophy. I personally hunt to feed my family and provide a different experience at the dinner table once in awhile.

Tasty Delicious Healthy

Every time I have a get together, my guests request me to make BBQ Buns. I make them a bit smaller so that I can get more out of a batch and they are easier to eat with your hands.

What do you think?

History of BBQ Buns

This is a recipe from my mother in-law that I have been making for years now. She got the recipe from a little cafe down south and changed it up just a bit to make it her own. They make a great little snack for on the go or just because.
