Breakfast Buns

ImageA slight mention of this in my household and there is no turning back.

The really cool thing about this recipe is, you can fill this bun with whatever the hell you want.  Sweet or savory fillings…the possibilities are endless!  You can use already made fresh pizza dough (I get free pizza dough from work so I always use ready made) or make your own favorite pizza dough recipe. For this recipe, I used 2 bags of pizza dough.

Step one is to choose your fillings.  For this recipe, I used my favorite local kielbasa from Olympic Provisions, local eggs from Ruby Hill Farms, organic yellow and red peppers, garlic and Romano cheese.  I used 12 eggs and half a pound of kielbasa for 10 buns.

Dice the kielbasa and peppers and mince the garlic.  In a frying pan, saute it all until the sausage is golden brown.  Scramble your eggs.

Take your scrambled eggs and sausage mixture and toss together.

On a floured surface, roll out pizza dough into a rectangle then cut into 8 pieces.

Now, take each section, roll it out just a tad and scoop filling into the middle.

Grab opposite ends of the dough and start folding towards the middle.  Pinch the dough as soon as you form a ball.  This will be the underside of the bun.

Flip it over and place on a greased baking sheet pan.

Take melted butter and brush the tops with it (using a pastry brush).  Sprinkle Romano cheese (or you can use Parmesan) and fresh cracked pepper on the tops.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.  Check on it.  If it is not golden brown, add 5 minute increments until slightly golden.  (You do not want to over bake or else the dough will get hard).

Serve hot right out of the oven!
