There are so many different kinds of rolls. Sometimes I take a patty melt route and have mine on grilled sour dough bread! Pretty tasty!

    Yes that's a tasty idea. I'm not too particular about my roll other than it has to hold up to any dressings / condiments that are on the burger. Nothing like a soggy mess of a bun falling to pieces.

      The more I have thought about the more I am favoring texas toast for my burgers. Love the thickness and taste of the toasted bread and holds up well with toppings.

        I like Texas Toast as well, and I also like certain rolls, if they have been steamed. I also like TGIF's cheeseburger that comes with no bun. I've been eating more than a few of then bun-less, just some good salt and pepper.

          Remember Eddie Murphy talking about "house burgers" on plain Wonder Bread? That's what my mother liked. I like just the plain white bread buns with sesame seeds...toasted with butter.

            I like mine on Kaiser (grilled), as long as they're 1/3 lb or larger burgers...

                  Yeah, I agree Route 11. At home I mostly use plain white bread for my burger. Never buy hamburger buns unless I'm cooking for a group.

                  Here in California, an inordinate number of places that serve burgers feel they have to have some big, dense, gawddawful specialty roll to put it on. I end up using a fork to scoop out half the bread - and make it a point to not go there again.

                  I also don't care for these 1/2 lb burgers that everyone is serving these days. 1/3 lb is the max size in my book. Preferably two patties of 1/6 lb each to make up the 1/3 lb. Kind of like what the Winstead's place (http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Writeup.aspx?ReviewID=2632&RefID=2641) is serving.

                    There is a place in Knoxville called Between the Buns that is a neat sports bar that has great pinball and other fun games. They grill the buns and the burger is soft and moist. Their fries are always fresh cooked and I like their style.

                    The grilled bun is for me although I have mostly left bread alone for about a year and a half due to the Atkins thing.

                    The holidays have not been kind to me and I picked up five pounds although I lost one of them yesterday and I plan on losing the rest in the next two weeks in preparation for my visit with RickF and Bushie in Austin.

                      I alway's enjoy a good hard roll. Haven't ever tried a burger on a kimmilwick, just roast beef, but now that I think about it, hmmm, sounds good.

                        I grew up eating the "house burgers" that Eddie Murphy referrs to and occasionally I want them again - with mustard, Texas Pete, and chipped onions.

                        When eating out I like the sesame seed or poppy seed hard rolls for a hamburger.

                          The bun for me is secondary.
                          The burger is primary.
                          I will use a regular standard
                          hamburger bun; you guys know what
                          I mean.
                          So long as the burger is medium rare,
                          80 percent ground chuck and seasoned
                          with S&P, cheese both sides of the bun
                          with whatever hits you at the time and
                          I'm good.
                          A few days ago, I was at the Fort Lauderdale
                          Continental terminal and reallyl hungry.
                          The choice was Chili's and basically nothing
                          else but a coffee place.
                          The bacon, cheddar cheeseburger on a larger
                          bun was cooked medium, well and could not be
                          ordered any other way. It came with tomato, chopped
                          letuce, and mayo.
                          Guess what.
                          It was tastless.
                          American Airlines at least has a Nathans.

                            I like the crunch that goes with a toasted bun, but sometimes I like a good ole' steamed bun. How can you steam a bun at your own home without any special appliances?

                              My mom used to just sprinkle some water in a brown paper bag, throw in the buns and crumple close the bag and put in a medium temp oven for awhile. They came out steamed.

                              These days, I suppose a similar technique could be developed using a microwave.

                                Out here in the West, you order a Patty Melt, you get the patty, cheese,
                                and grilled onions on grilled rye. And that is my answer to your thread question.
