These Tuna Buns are perfect for quick lunches, snacks or picnic food. You will love the savory tuna filling nestled inside soft bread with sesame seeds as a tasty garnish.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Set aside
In a mixing bowl, combine yeast, warm water and about a teaspoon of sugar. Let this stand for 5 minutes, or until it is foamy. Add milk, egg, softened butter, sugar and salt. Stir everything with a wooden spoon.
Gently deflate the dough and divide to 12 portions. Using a rolling pin or your palms, flatten a portion into 1/4 inch thickness. Spoon about a tablespoon of the tuna mixture in the center of the dough. Fold the edges over the center and pull it over to cover the filling. Shape the dough into a smooth ball, tucking the ends underneath to close. Repeat with the remaining dough.
Arrange the dough balls on a baking pan that is lined with parchment paper. Cover it with a clean kitchen towel and let it rise again for about an hour, or until doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Brush the surface of the dough with the egg wash and sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Bake at 350 F for 18-22 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm. Store leftovers in a tightly closed container at room temperature for up to two days.
