Super Awesome Buns of Meat and Veggies

Homemade Buns stuffed with Meat and Vegetables and Butter and Cheese.  These are wonderful. time consuming but worth it.  I will probably make mine smaller next time, more bite sized.  More Delicious.

What Do I Need?

3 to 3 1/2 cups of Flour

2 1/4 tsp of Yeast

1 cup of Milk

1/4 cup of Sugar

2 tbls of Butter

1/2 tsp of Salt

Eggs

Filling (the sky is the limit!)

Mix 1 1/2 cups of Flour with 2 1/4 tsp of Yeast.  Set aside.

Mix 1/4 cups of Sugar with 1 cup of Milk, 2 tbls of Butter and 1/2 tsp of Salt.  Heat in  Saucepan until butter just about melts and looks like this…

Pour this into your Flour and Yeast mixture.

Add an Egg.

Beat on low to medium for about 30 seconds and don’t forget to scrape the sides of the bowl.  Beat on high speed for 3 minutes.

Stir in as much of your remaining 2 cups of flour as you can.

Turn your dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead in as much of the remaining flour as you can until your dough becomes soft, smooth and elastic.

About 3 to 5 minutes.

Grease a bowl, I used Olive Oil.

Form your dough into a ball and place in your oiled bowl, turn to coat with oil.

Cover with plastic and place in a warm place for about an hour.  I put mine in my oven that had been set to 150 while preparing the dough, I turn it off before I begin kneading.

Vegetables for the filling!

It all goes through the food processor and comes out looking like this…

Cook this in Butter.

A lot of Butter.

Meat, totally optional.  Next time I may try Pulled Pork or Chicken.

I used a stick of butter for the Meat and Lawry’s Seasoning Salt.  To be honest I didn’t really pay much attention to the Meat portion of this meal.  Although I used the Butter in the bowl to brush over the tops of the assembled buns, and it was delicious.

Set these aside and pay some more attention to your buns!

Holy Shit!  It worked!  Punch it!

It didn’t even stick when I turned it out of the bowl!

It looks mildly vaginal to me.

Pull pieces off of your dough and form them into balls (snicker).  Place them seam side down.

I was able to make 11, like I said I am going to make mine smaller next time, hopefully double that amount!

Cover these with plastic and place them back into your warm place for 10 to 20 minutes.

As you wait take pictures of things.  I chose to photograph my Washed and Poop Free Farm fresh Eggs.

The blue one is my favorite.

Holy Shit!  It worked again!

Cover your baking sheet with Aluminum Foil and coat with Olive Oil.

Roll out your dough, or “pizza dough it” as I so ingeniously called it last night.  Make it round and thin, it’s doesn’t matter how you do it.

Scoop your filling and cover with a spoonful of melted seasoned Butter.

Brush water along the edges and seal by bringing the edges up to meet each other and sealing the bun, place seam side down on your baking sheet.

Brush Butter over the tops of your buns!

Bake at 350 for about 18 minutes, until the tops of your buns are golden brown.

 We ate them with Soy Sauce, Eli chose Ketchup.  I even ate them cold hours later.  Still delicious.

Imagine if you will, ham and cheese, eggs, bacon and cheese, cherry fucking pie filling!

The possibilities are endless.  I want to dedicate an entire weekend to making as many of these in as many combinations as I can.

Alas, I must wait until we have a freezer to store them in.

What Do I Do?

Mix 1 1/2 cups of Flour with 2 1/4 tsp of Yeast.  Set aside.

Mix 1 cup of Milk, 1/4 cup of Sugar 2 tbls of Butter and 1/2 tsp of Salt.  Heat over low heat until butter is just melted.  Add this to your Flour and Yeast along with one Egg.

Beat with an elctric mixer on low to medium for about 30 seconds.  Scrape the sides of the bowl consistently.

Beat on high speed for 3 minutes.  Then stir is as much of the remaining flour as you can with a wooden spoon.

Turn your dough out onto a lightly floured surface, knead as much of the remaining flour in as you can until you have a moderately soft, smooth and elastic dough.

Place the dough into an oiled bowl, turn to coat the dough evenly with oil.  Cover with plastic and place in a warm place for about an hour.

Meanwhile:

Create your filling.  I used finely minced vegetables sauteed in butter and small pieces of cheap steak.  The world is your playground, stuff your buns with deliciousness!

Your dough  has risen.  Punch it.

Turn it out onto a clean surface and pull pieces from it in as uniform a size as you can.  Turn them until you have a small ball of dough and place it on a baking sheet in a warm place for 10 to 20 minutes.

It rises again!

Roll out each piece of dough into about a 4 inch circle and spoon your filling of choice into the center.  Brush water around the edges and seal your dough, place seam side down on a baking sheet covered in aluminum foil that has been smeared liberally with Olive Oil.

Brush the top of each bun with Butter or an Egg and Water solution.

Bake for about 18 minutes in a 350 degree oven until the tops of your buns are golden brown.

Enjoy!

    • I am going to focus on making them a little better for us, mainly, omitting the butter and working with whole wheat flour. Any suggestions Allison?
