Brioche buns

As a child, I used to think I was quite the baker, given that my parents owned a cafe, it felt like I had baker super powers that made me totally awesome.....how wrong was I! On Sundays I would excitedly mix and knead the bread dough, let it rise, bake it, then carefully wrap it in a tea towel and deliver it to my parents, big grin on my face and wait in anticipation of them cracking it open to reveal, steaming hot fluffy bread.... Such was never the case! It was always so hard you could give it to the dog as a chew toy. 
Years later, bread still scares me, I have learnt many things and my cooking skills have improved ten fold, but bread.....still.....scares.....me. 
Today, all that changed. I made brioche buns. They were easy. They look great. They taste even better. 
Brioche is a French style bread which I would say is more a bread/pastry hybrid. It's light and fluffy, with a buttery finish. And it's perfect as a burger bun. 
I won't publish the recipe, as it was one I found on a website. That being said, there were a few things I would change, so stay posted for a recipe in the future. In the meantime....what would you fill your brioche with?
