  • Cover the dough balls with lightly sprayed plastic wrap. Place the baking sheets into the 100 degree preheated oven or place them into a WARM draft free area. Let the buns rise for about 20 minutes or until they have doubled in size.
  • Remove baking sheets from oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Keep the baking sheets covered while the oven is preheating. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until lightly golden on top
  • Once baked let the buns cool on the pan for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Let cool completely before using


1 serving equals 1 bun
1 bun equals about 3.5 grams of net carbs
If you use one bun for top and one bun for bottom like I do the carb count is about 7 grams of net carbs
