Thank you for all your advises, i've tried the recipe another time and it was a success compared to what I used to get before.
I added more water in my dough (even if it was sitcky), I let it raise just enough, I baked it at an higher temperature and I brushed the top of my buns with egg yolk for golden crust. As you can see not perfect but a success ;)

That's a nice looking bun Busagi. I'm glad you are having good results.

That bun looks good enough to throw a fresh ground grilled cooked chuck burger on.

My choice in burger buns is based on carb counts. Bread is always the killer for me when preparing a meal. Most carbs are easy: A half-cup or cup of most starches (rice, pasta, potatoes) come close enough for my purposes (I'm talking cooking for a husband who has needs). But bread just gets me every time. It amazes me that a slice of this bread can be 70+ grams and another slice of another loaf can be 15. And they don't look that much different!

Well done, for me bread making is a 40 yr addiction. Recipes are only a part of the art. Practice, understanding the ingredient, your oven and the conditions you work in IMO are paramount.
Bread making and patisserie are alchemy not cooking.

Also, brushing the tops with an egg yolk wash before baking will ensure a beautiful golden crust.
I have the same problem explaining bread dough. It is a thing of a feel in the dough. The dough will be smooth and not stick to your hands. After you make the dough a few times, and you get it right, you remember that feel and will always look for it. You will be amazed at how wrong your first attempts were.
