These cheese buns are made with three types of cheese: they are filled with a nice piece of mozzarella and then sprinkled with grated cheddar and parmesan. The great flavor also comes from the fact that the dough for the cheese buns contains both butter, olive oil, salt and garlic powder. In addition, the buns should be brushed with a mixture of melted butter, garlic powder and fresh oregano after baking.
Mmm-m-m, as you see, these buns are flavourful stuff, the taste is amazing! Serve the cheese buns while they are still hot and fresh, with the cheese inside still soft and delicious.
A delicious lunch recipe found in “Crisco’s Good Cooking Made Easy Cook Book” published by Procter & Gamble in 1978
Crisco is a brand of shortening produced by The J.M. Smucker Company popular in the United States. Introduced in June 1911 by Procter & Gamble, it was the first shortening to be made entirely of vegetable oil. Additional products marketed by Smucker under the Crisco brand include a cooking spray, various olive oils, and other cooking oils, including canola, corn, peanut, olive, sunflower, vegetable and blended oils
If you’re living outside the US you can get hold of Crisco at My American Market if you want to try it in a typical American recipe – Ted
A great Italian inspired snack recipe found on saveur.com
Test kitchen director Farideh Sadeghin at Saveur likes to use Italian bread crumbs to bread her mozzarella, but you could use panko if you were so inclined. Double breading insures that the outside gets nice and crispy while the inside cheese has time to melt when frying. These freeze well, so keep them in your freezer and pull them out to defrost before frying whenever you feel like.
Mini pizzas like these are both fun to make and fun to serve. The topping can be varied giving you the chance to bake a lot of different pizzas in one go. Works great both as a lunch, in the picnic basket and for an afternoon tea.
