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

Was great meeting you tonight Suanne! I will have to try making this Chinese sausage bun; never knew it would be so easy. Saves me $1 from buying it at the store. Do you know how they make BBQ pork buns and cocktail buns (coconut buns)?
Hi Shopaholicinvan, here is my family’s favourite BBQ pork filing recipe: http://chowtimes.com/2006/03/28/char-siu-bao-part-1-of-2/. I love coconut bun too but I dont the recipe.
Here is the recipe for the coconut bun filling:
Butter (at room temperature) – 1/2 cup
Flour – 1/4 cup
Sugar – 1/2 cup
Evaporated milk – 1Tbsp
Unsweetened shredded coconut – 1/2 cup
Mix the above together and roll it into 3 inch long strip. Refrigerate/freeze it until firm.
