Occasionally, I will get buns from bakery for my kids lunch. Sometimes, they just want something simple which does not require reheating. There are only limited microwaves in the school and sometimes, the line to use the microwave can be very long.
Buns with meat filings are great for the lunch box. It is very convenient. Occasionally, I will make a batch but then the boys will be bored with it as a batch usually yield at least 8 to 10 buns and they will have the same thing for the rest of the week.
I used the same dough recipe for cinnamon bun to make these buns.
Yield 8 buns
|Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces.
|For the braid type, roll the dough out into an oblong shape. Place the sausage in the centre. Make seven 45 degrees cut on both sides of the dough.
|Braid the dough over the sausage, overlapping one another.
|For a different version where the center of the bun is more bulging, roll the dough into a long strip with the middle part bigger than the ends.
|Wrap the dough around the sausage with the thicker part in the middle.
|Let the dough rise in a warm and draft free place for 50 to 60 minutes.
|The dough should double in size.
|Brush the dough with egg wash (just a beaten egg) and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake in a 350F preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until the bun is golden brown.
