Hints and tips:

Don't have a Panasonic bread maker? You can still make the buns, heat the milk then stir in the yeast and leave for a few minutes. Mix together the flour, salt and xanthan gum in a large bowl. Add the honey, eggs, and oil to the milk and yeast mixture, and whisk. Then gradually mix the liquid mix into the dry ingredients until all the ingredients are combined and it looks like a smooth dough. Then pick up from step 4. 
The dough doesn’t stretch as traditional dough might do because there’s no gluten in it. Gently press it into shape. You might need to wet your
hands to keep the dough from sticking and to create a smooth surface, but avoid making the dough soggy.
Don't fancy beef? the falafel burger is a perfect alternative or if you want a tasty take on a chicken burger add in our katsu chicken with a spoon of katsu sauce.
