Ham and cheese buns – with or without a Thermomix

Stuffed buns are perfect for lunch boxes (for adults and kids alike), to take on a picnic, to serve as an aperitif or to have for a simple dinner, served with a green salad.

I made these with ham & cheese. Alternatives can be brie & cranberry, goats cheese, pesto, olives, chorizo, bacon, mozzarella, feta & sun-dried tomatoes. Fill them generously with what’s in your fridge, you can’t really go wrong!
