Cheesy Herb Stuffed Buns

Sharing is caring!

After two basic buns, it was turn to make some variations with the buns. So I decided to stuff the buns with different options and check out how it would taste. These buns again didn’t brown well on top, however the taste was awesome. I keep wondering why some buns don’t brown well on top. But I gave up to think further on this topic!
When I had done with baking this, I had kept it aside for it to cool down. However Peddu was waiting impatiently to devour these. I had tough time thinking on how to plate these, the moment I was done, I only had a glimpse of it, before everything vanished! 
I know the stuffing isn’t so different and I kept it very simple as I was experimenting on my kids taste. I was so glad they loved it!

  1. Looking at the collage, I thought you also used potatoes for the stuffing. Mozzarella and herbs stuffing must have tasted wonderful.

    As for the photography section on my blog, I have one in Thursday's post.

  2. Sometimes even the buns I bake don't brown well! I keep wondering why!But the filling here sounds so delicious and the fact that it disappeared fast speaks volumes of the taste 🙂

  3. Great stuffing for buns ! Not too many takers for cheesy stuff at my end but those look delish ! For browning, try a mixture of warm milk and sugar / corn starch wash .. And some broiler mode at the end . I heard even adding gluten develops a slightly browned top, but I haven't tried it

  4. Cheese stuffed buns are ever favorite. I have tried many fillings but this remains the best of all. I use just milk on top and get the brown color. Maybe try using milk with more fat content or cream.
