How to Make Bacon Buns


  1. Pour scalded milk into bowl. Add butter,sugar,salt and mix. Let mixture cool to luke warm. Stir in yeast until dissolved. Add beaten eggs. Then add 4 cups flour gradually, mixing well until dough is workable.
  2. Turn dough out onto floured surface using remaining 1/2 cup of flour and knead with hands until smooth.(If sticky grease hands with butter and keep working it until elastic; about 10 minutes.) Put into greased bowl, turn over and punch down,cover with greased wax paper and towel. Let rise in warm place until doubled, about one hour.
  3. While dough is rising, fry bacon until limp. Remove from pan into strainer and let fat drain off.
  4. Pinch off a piece of dough in the size you desire and flatten into a round shape. Place one teaspoon(roughly) filling in center of each shape.
    fold and seal edges. Place sealed side down on greased cookie sheet and let rise in warm place until doubled about 30 minutes, again covering with only a towel. Now mix your one egg and two tbsp milk.Before baking brush buns with this mixture. Bake in preheated 350 oven for 20-25 mins or until golden brown.
  5. Note: I copied the recipe as it was given to me but I did not drain the bacon completely because a little bacon grease really adds to the flavor.
