Chebe Millet Buns for Burgers

Chebe Millet Buns for Burgers

Adding a bit of millet flour and a small amount of Parmesan cheese gives these gluten free Chebe buns a delightful texture and flavor that are a little lighter than the traditional Brazilian Cheese Bread you have when following the directions off the box. It’s a perfect burger bun!

  1. Mix the ground beef with the other seasonings and separate into four equal pieces.

  2. In a mixing bowl and using a fork, blend the Chebe mix with the other dry ingredients.
  3. Continue blending in the eggs, water and oil/butter. Mix for a couple of minutes with the fork, then use your hands to bring it all together until the dough is smooth and well blended.
  4. Separate the dough into four equal pieces.
  5. With a burger patty press (recommended) or with your hands, flatten each piece to about 4” diameter.

  6. Place on a clean baking tray and brush the tops lightly with olive oil. Bake for 16 - 18 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest 5 minutes.
  7. With a serrated knife, cut the buns so you have a top and a bottom bun.
