I'd made some hamburger buns the other day & found this recipe to be a perfect fit with them! However, since my buns were pretty big, I doubled the vegetable filling amounts & that worked just fine! Made for an interesting & memorable breakfast! Thanks for sharing this great keeper! [Made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe tag]
