Ham and Cheese Buns (Recipe)

December 29th, 2011

Disclaimer: this post would be better with a picture.  I was too busy munching on these delectable wee bites to take their picture.  

My great recipe discovery of our church open house this year was a super easy ham and cheese bun.  It’s totally adaptable to different fillings — my mom did mandarin beef and they were fabulous — and comes together easily.  They’re also kid-friendly, as little hands can help put the meat and cheese onto the dough, or help brush the buns with egg.  Enjoy!

    Me, too! The original recipe had you making your own dough but substituting the frozen worked just fine and is sure a lot easier!
