Spanish Rolls

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Donna Matthews

We love to make these ahead, wrap them individually in foil, freeze them in a plastic bag, then pull them out and bake them when we feel like having a hot lunch.

I grew up with this recipe, we made them every year, and called them New Year's Buns. The only difference i see is we added hard cooked eggs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all filling ingredients together.
  2. Slice the rolls in half horizontally.
  3. Pull some of the insides out of each half roll to form a hollow.
  4. (I save these bread pieces for a bread pudding.).
  5. Fill rolls with cheese by putting a mound of the filling in a bottom and putting the top on top.
  6. Wrap each roll in a piece of foil, using a sandwich wrap to seal it.
  7. Bake at 325 degrees for about 45 minutes.
  8. If you freeze them, allow about an hour for the cooking time, although the time can be adjusted according to how crispy you like them.
