Big Poppa’s must-have for any burger

A toasted bun on a burger can make all the difference. Big Poppa swears by it (as seen in Big Poppa’s Upside Down Tabasco Butter Burger recipe).

You’ll never eat burgers without a toasted bun again.

Course: Side   Cuisine: American   Prep Time: 5 min   Cook Time: >5min   Servings: 4


4 Brioche hamburger buns (or any bread of your choosing, hotdog buns work too)

1.5 sticks of salted butter

1 teaspoon Tabasco Original Red


Preheat grill to 350F

Make Tabasco Butter: Melt butter in a microwave and add Tabasco Original Red

Place both parts of bun (top and bottom) on a grill, soft side down (make sure they do not burn)

Check for grill marks/toast to preference

Flip buns over, baste with Tabasco Butter on toasted side

Remove buns from grill and set aside

Use for burgers, grilled cheese, hot dogs, sandwiches, or just regular toast. This hack works for any type of bread
