Fresh bread is something I can never resist, and if you are a constant reader, you will know I love bread. That’s why I have a lot of bread recipes on this blog like sweet white bread, Crusty Dutch Oven No-knead bread, Bread sausage bread rolls, and many more…but this particular recipe is quite different. 

Let’s look at it this way. Meat tastes good, and so do buns, so of course, these meat-stuffed buns will be good, right? The dough is so soft, and the filling is so tasty and addictive! Following this recipe is a sure way to get something truly delicious and new!

We prefer to eat them fresh and hot from the oven as an appetizer, but they can also be served with soup or salad as a full meal. They are also perfect for snack time or a quick meal.

I made my filling with ground beef, but ground turkey or ground chicken will work just as well.

The meat filling is very versatile, and you can go as bold as you want with it. Add some crispy diced bacon, ham, onions, parmesan cheese, or shredded mozzarella cheese.

I made them into six big buns; however, you can make them into smaller buns, especially if you plan to use them as grab and go for kids.

How long will these buns last?

Since these buns are stuffed with meat, it is advisable to eat them within a couple of hours. If you plan to eat them later, you can store them in a ziplock bag and keep them in the fridge for up to 3 days, and they also keep well in the freezer and thaws well.

Can I use the no-knead dough for this recipe?

 My answer will be no because no-knead doughs are wet and not strong enough to hold the weight of the filling.

How long to make Meat Buns? 

This recipe takes about two hours, including prep and cook time.
