Spicy Hot Cross Buns shout out to me every time I go near the supermarket bakery section - Buy me...buy me... and then when I get home they shout again - Eat me...eat me...

I start buying them as soon as they hit the shelves long before Easter!

Sweet, Spicy, Spongy and Superlicious, toasted with butter melting they are the best!

So I made a Hot Cross Bun Ice Cream Sandwich a couple of weeks ago after some burst water pipe disasters, but today I'm making a very cheesy and very meaty savoury Hot Cross Bun sandwich filled with three kinds of meats; cheesy roll topped with a Bacon cross (which shrunk to my dismay) and filled it with Lettuce, caramelised Onions, Minted Lamb Patty, melted Cheese, Smoked Beef and a local Burger Sauce, Jimmy's Chip & Burger Sauce.

I was the lucky recipient of a sauce and seasoning hamper courtesy of Jimmy's and a real nice Steemian @braaiboy direct translation BBQ Boy :) who hosts #MeatyMondays where he gives away SBI shares plus if you live in South Africa you stand the chance of winning this hamper, so thank you @braaiboy & Jimmy's! The sauces are absolutely smashing!

Validation photo and Jimmy's Sauces Shout-out!

My cross was an epic failure - I forgot that the Bacon would shrink once cooked, my gorgeous cheesy hot cross bun was left with a little shrunken cross......darn it! But the smell was amazing!

INGREDIENTS

  • White Bread dough

  • Grated Cheese

  • Streaky Bacon rashers sliced thinly

  • Lettuce

  • Onions, caramelised

  • homemade minted Lamb Burger patty

  • Cheese slices

  • Smoked Beef

  • Burger Sauce

Roll bread dough balls in grated strong Cheddar Cheese, make a cross with Bacon rasher - do not stretch bacon like I did as it will shrink!

Bake at 180C for approx 20 min - note how my Bacon cross shrunk!

Make up burger patty with ground Lamb, diced Onion, Spring Onion & fresh Mint and bind with an Egg plus Breadcrumbs or Oats or Almond Flour, the latter Keto friendly.
