Farmer sausage meat buns

Try this recipe to make a little something for the family to take along for their work / school lunches.
I made the dough a little higher in fiber, used low fat cheese and low sodium farmer sausage.
Using turkey sausage is a better option but we didn't have any. You can use garlic sausage really anything you have on hand.

dough-
  • 1 1/2 c. oats
  • 3 c. whole wheat
  • 3 c. unbleached flour
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 pkg. instant yeast
  • 1/4 c. oil (can be left out)
  • 4 c. of really warm water
  1. mix all the dry ingredients including the dry yeast
  2. add water and incorporate well.
  3. add more unbleached flour as necessary to make a soft dough
  4. knead about 10 min.
  5. let dough rest about 20 min.
  6. divide dough in 64 equal pieces
filling-
  • farmer sausage, cut into 64 equal pieces
  • cheese cut in 64 sticks
  • mustard
  1. flatten out each piece of dough and put in a little mustard, a piece of sausage and cheese.
  2. fold up sides and pinch the seams together, place seam side down on a parchment lined baking pan.
  3. some cheese tends to melt out and it makes for easier clean up.
  4. let rise about 1/2 hour. bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes.

64 sounds like a lot, but the kids have them polished up in no time!
ENJOY!

  3. I bet this would be good with a little pizza sauce, pepperoni and some mozzarella cheese, too. I'm going to try this tomorrow, we homeschool so maybe a good afternoon snack.

    1. Hi Ashley, Thanks for the great question. Yes, they do freeze well. I like having them on hand for lunches or for when I have been too busy (or lazy) to cook and serve them along side some soup.
