Instant Pot Slider Buns

You Will Need

1/2 Cup Water
1 TB Dry Active Yeast
3 1/2 cups flour
(more to sprinkle counter tops and make sure your roll dough is sticky)
1/4 Cup Sugar
4 TS Butter (divided)
1 Egg
Butter Spray OR Olive Oil Spray


Have you ever proofed dough in the instant pot? It's so easy to do, and the dough comes out light and airy and fluffy. I love the texture of bread when it's done this way and these slider buns are a sinch. They are perfect for making hamburger sliders, pork sliders, ham and cheese sliders, anything you really want to make with them. Store-bought is okay, but homemade is always better. 


  • In a bowl mix 1/4 water with yeast. Let stand 10 min.

  • While your yeast is activating, get another bowl and add 3 1/2 cups flour. 1/4 cup water, egg, sugar, 2 TBS butter, Wait for your yeast and then add to mixture.

  • Mix well

  • Then add flour to your counter top and start kneading,

  • Take your dough and start folding it into each other. while pressing down. (see video)

  • After kneading, spray the inside of your instant pot (I used my 3 qt) roll ball of dough around so that oil covers the dough.

  • Place your lid on, turn your valve to sealing (not venting) and press yogurt.

  • Take it down to 1 hour.

  • When done, take out of your instant pot, and place on the floured counter top.

  • Roll into a 1-inch circle.

  • Take a jar or cookie cutter and cut out circles.

  • Get your pan out, and spray with oil and place your circles, lightly touching each other.

  • Butter tops generously.

  • Let rise for 1 more hour.

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 and bake for 22 min (20 min if you want them lighter in color)

  • When rolls are hot, butter each top (use the rest of the butter)

           Slap them babies with some grape jelly and... Enjoy
