Baked buns with meat filling are like
steamed buns with filling,
except you use your oven instead of a steamer. In fact,
this recipe is basically a hybridization of French
bread and steamed buns
with filling, but you can also use the steamed
buns dough recipe just as well. I'm simply partial
to French bread.
So, start out by making some French
bread dough. Using that, follow
the directions for making steamed buns
with filling (including making the filling), but instead of steaming
them, put the buns on a greased cookie sheet with the seam side down, let the buns rise for a half hour to 45 minutes,
and then bake them for 20 minutes in an oven preheated
to 375 degrees.
