Homemade Hamburger/Sandwich Buns

Last week I FINALLY got my new tattoo last Friday!!!!  While I was having it done Dillon did the grocery shopping for me.  Needless to say I found all week that I was out of things I shouldn’t have been lol.  I can’t really blame him… he stuck….. and I mean literally stuck… to my list.  Anything I forgot to add didn’t make it into the cart.  One of those things being the buns I usually get to make sandwiches for Dillon’s lunch with.  That meant pulling the KitchenAid out and making my own!

Yes homemade taste so much better… not to mention the smell coming from the kitchen when you are baking them… but some weeks (most weeks) it is just way easier to buy them.  And yes I do know that is very, very lazy!

Oven Baked Sandwiches

When I made the Cream of Chicken soup last weekend Chris asked me if I was going to make some grilled cheese to go with it for dinner.  I don’t know about you, but making grilled cheese in the frying pan for more than 2 people is a pain and you can’t usually all eat together.  I told him… sort of lol.

I decided to make some ham and cheese, and turkey and cheese, sandwiches in the oven using hamburger buns instead of bread and adding a bit to the sandwiches….why go halfway lol? Below is how I made these sandwiches… and let me say that Dillon ended up eating 5 of the 8 sandwiches!!!! They may not take very good pictures but they sure tasted great!

Mexican Wiener Wrap

I saw this recipe on the Pillsbury website: https://www.pillsbury.com/recipes/crunchy-nacho-dogs/5aa85f70-4c05-4084-a66f-cddede49ec23 and it just looked so good I decided to try it.

As it happens, Chris had a few friends over to “play” in the shop today so between them and Dillon I had plenty of taste testers for this recipe! And it received all thumbs up!

Now, I of course changed it up a bit from the way it was on the Pillsbury website but for the most part kept it pretty close!
