Buns of Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

A few post earlier, I had written a post on Sloppy Joe Filling. I had promised to post the recipe for the buns I used but completely forgot. Oppps! Well, without further ado, Sloppy Joe Buns for your sloppy joes! Sorry about the delay!

Rolls for Sloppy Joe Sandwiches!


1 1/4 teaspoon active dry yeast

1  tablespoon olive oil

1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoons salt

1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar

warm water (about 1/2 – 3/4 cup)

milk, for brushing

sesame seeds or poppy seeds (optional)


  1. Combine all ingredients adding just enough water to make a soft dough.
  2. Cover dough and allow it to rest for at least 1 hour (double its size)
  3. Divide the dough into six pieces
  4. Form a round ball out of each piece and place on greased baking sheet.
  5. Flatten each piece slightly.
  6. Allow dough to rise for 1 hour
  7. Preheat oven to 450 F and make sure there is two racks in the oven.
  8. Brush each roll with milk and sprinkle with sesame seeds or poppy seeds (or omit)
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes

  1. I finished the sloppy joes ages ago Samina, thanks for leaving me hanging! Kidding, these look great and I like the idea of brushing them with a bit of milk.

    • LOL looks like I was a bit too late 😉 I like brushing the bread with milk because I hate wasting an egg to make an egg wash and I hate melting butter (plus it makes my hands greasy when I eat the bread) lol 🙂
