I don't bake, but I want to make (good) hamburger buns.

I'm not much of a baker. When I look at internet recipes that list a dozen ingredients for a simple hamburger bun, I figure there's got to be a simpler way. I can make the no-knead bread, that's just flour, water, yeast & salt. It tastes good. However I can't really shape buns out of that mixture too well.

Someone on here must know of a better way.

Alternatively, I've thought about using rounds of polenta, however when I've tried this these don't seem the have the "strength" (is that the right word here?) to be held like a bun; They just end up splitting and causing a mess. I can eat them with a fork & knife, and it's tasty, but when I eat a burger, I want to use my hands. Is there a way to make polenta where it will hold together better?
