Garlic Cheddar Brioche Buns

Stephanie is my final guest post for the week, in theory I’m still laying by a pool with a fedora on my head and a good book in my hands. In reality, I’m probably still thinking about these brioche buns. These are the recipes I can’t get enough of from Stephanie. She really is the master of yeasty, carb-y, delicious breads.


Hi there, Susie Freaking Homemaker readers! My name is Stephanie and I bake, blog and babble over at Girl Versus Dough. I’m so honored to be posting on Mackenzie’s blog while she is on her trip (though a leeetle sad I couldn’t fit into her suitcase). So let’s console our non-vacationing selves with a recipe for garlic cheddar brioche buns, shall we?

Now before you panic because you just realized this is a yeast bread recipe, know this — brioche is one of the easiest yeast breads out there to bake. I’m no expert, but in my experience enriched breads (meaning they are made with butter, eggs and milk, like brioche or challah) are very forgiving and yield great results nearly every time. The other equally awesome thing about enriched breads? They have a super soft and fluffy crumb. Like a pillow, really. A delicious carb pillow.
