A tried and true recipe for the softest, cheesiest Cheesebuns EVER. Try them as a side with a bowl of soup or tuck into school lunches for a cheesy treat.
Cheesebuns Make a Great Lunchbox Treat
My kids are always after me to make them grilled cheese or mac ‘n’ cheese or anything cheesy at all. On treat days I’ve been known to pick up cheese buns from the famous Glamorgan Bakery so I thought it would be handy to create my own recipe for Cheesebuns. So much more convenient that driving across town.
When there are some left over, hubby makes the kids sandwiches by slicing them in half and inserting the toppings. They seem to like anything different in their lunches and I don’t blame them.
Beat School Lunchbox Boredom!
I remember (way back) when I was a kid and the never ending tedium of school lunch boxes was an every day day occurrence. Besides my mom’s fabulous home made bread I had an apple and if I was really lucky, a cookie. I say lucky but what I meant was I had a cookie only if I baked it myself. My mom makes super bread but just can’t seem to bake anything else. Most of the time I would only have meat in my sandwiches if there was left over roast beef or ham as my mother never bought sandwich meat. More often than not I had a cheese sandwich.
Break Out of the Lunchbox Tedium with Cheesebuns
These days the kids have it much better. I do buy juice boxes for them and the odd granola bar and of course I bake a lot so they often go to school with some real gems in their boxes. Still, that’s a long amount of time to eat sandwiches for lunch and they still get bored. Twelve years of sandwiches!
How to Make Cheesebuns
The dough for the Cheesebuns is very similar to one you would use for cinnamon buns. Instead of spreading butter, cinnamon and sugar you use some melted butter and a whole bunch of grated cheese. These buns are great with a bit of added garlic powder but only if consumed at home. Kid number two informed me she preferred not to have garlic breath at school so next time I’ll skip it.
