Little Buns

My mom has been wanting me to make these little buns for some time now, and I always glance at this recipe when paging through the family recipe album. I thought I would give them a try. Little buns are this nice little morsels, packed with some interesting ingredients, wrapped in crescent rolls, frozen, then baked. I was a little skeptical at first, but wow, do these pack some interesting texture, and flavor, and definitely deserve a place on a plate at a party.


  • 1 lb ground beef, uncooked
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 packages of beef flavored mushroom soup mix
  • 1 8 oz can of water chestnuts, drained, and chopped
  • 1 cup of bean sprouts, cleaned and chopped
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Pinch of Pepper
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 4 tubes of crescent rolls
  • Wax/Parchment paper

Bring all of your ingredients, without the crescent rolls, to a large bowl and thoroughly combine.  Unfold your sheet of crescent rolls, and cut each triangle in half.  Take about a tablespoon of the mixture and add to the center of each halved triangle. Next, begin to fold like a diaper, taking one side over, the other side over, and bringing up the front. Keep in mind that they might not fold completely, but don’t worry to much about that, do the best you can to seal them, without breaking the dough.

Add them to a cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper, and place them in your freezer, or if you are like me, put them outside (I live in Wisconsin), and let them freeze.

You have two options once they are frozen. Place them in a ziplock bag and place in the freezer for later use, or do what I did and preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and cook them on an ungreased cookie sheet for 25 minutes.

Once cooked, remove them from the sheet, let cool for a few minutes, then plate and serve. Trust me on this one, you will not be able to eat just one! These will be great for your next appetizer during a football game, or just hanging out with friends.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
