Since I could not bake for the time being...and am recuperating at home until the arm movement is fully recovered, I will cleaning up and shifting all my baking posts from Elinluv's Tidbits Corner to here :) Bacon and Cheese Rolls are my Piggies favorite rolls. I used to bake these for them when they were in college and imagine , they practically grew up eating homemade buns. Homemade buns are indeed yummilicious and have no preservatives and most important I enjoyed making them. Now is the time for me to reminisce all those lovely homemade buns that I baked for them when they were in college and I hope you too will have fun baking them.
