Potato Bacon Buns

Hey guys, it’s Friday again! I hope you all have had an amazing week! I am really looking forward to the weekend. Just want to spend a cosy weekend at home with my husband and probably catch up with some friends too.

Life has been a little bit hectic at the moment. I haven’t had much time for cooking. I really miss it! Today, after I came back from the grocery shopping, I realised I didn’t get any bread from the bakery. I really can’t be bothered going out again. So I have a perfect excuse to warm up my oven. ๐Ÿ™‚

I want something more than just plain bread. ย I want something with filling. I sautรฉedย some potatoes with bacon and heaps of black pepper in olive oil. My Kenwood chef has to do the work to make the dough.DSCF0190ย When the dough is ready, I made eight buns with the filling I prepared. Time to let it rise again. Patience, patience and patience! I cut the top before sending them in the oven. They looked like this. See the photos below.ย DSCF0193After baked in the oven for 20 minutes, here are the buns. Delicious! I can promise you that. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Will be good for tomorrow’s breakfast as well, I reckon. What do you say? ๐Ÿ™‚DSCF0209

  1. Yum, potato and bread are the ultimate pairing made in (starch) heaven! I love to bake, but I’m terrible at making bread items since I never have the patience to let them rise completely. Yours look good, and sounds like a warm, hearty meal for cold days!

    • Thank you. Glad you like it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yeah, true. You do need some patience for making bread. I quite often let the dough rise overnight in the fridge. At least, I don’t have to wait patiently twice on the baking day.
