I love creating quick and easy recipes to replace sandwiches in the school lunchboxes. The same old ham and cheese in between two pieces of bread can get boring after a while, and so I have changed it up a bit with these Tropical Lunch Buns.
Cheese, bacon and pineapple is such a classic combination, and always a winner in our household!
The rolls can be made bite size, lunch size or man size depending on who you are feeding.
These rolls are also great for picnics or as a welcome to the neighbourhood gift!
Someone couldn't wait to try one.....
Delicious warm with butter, or cold in a lunchbox, and even better with soup for lunch!
