Need to make hamburger buns but I'm out of eggs. Help!

ChervilGeorge | Jun 15, 201903:58 PM     6

Just realized I'm out of eggs and need to make hamburger buns. The recipe I use is:
¾ C warm water
4 Tbs whole milk
1 egg (whisked ¾ of the egg into the batter the rest reserved for glaze)
1 tsp kosher salt
1 heaping Tbs of sugar
1 heaping tsp of instant yeast
3 C flour
2 Tbs butter

I've made this before without egg and it comes out more like a roll. This is fine but I'm hoping to achieve a more traditional soft hamburger bun. Would adding more milk to replace the egg work? Glaze with melted butter?
