Sausage & Bacon Bonfire Party Buns

Savoury Chelsea buns filled with bacon and sausage - delicious with soup or as a snack

Servings: 7 buns
Prep Time1 hr 30 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Total Time2 hrs


For the dough

  • 250 ml milk – lukewarm
  • 40 g butter – very soft
  • 1 tsp bread yeast
  • 300 g strong white flour
  • 100 g plain white flour
  • 1 tbs grain mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the filling

  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion – finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 rashers streaky bacon – finely chopped
  • 2 pork sausages – skinned and broken up
  • 2 tbs heaped chutney


  • Add the butter and yeast to the lukewarm milk and allow to stand in warm place until the yeast has started to froth.
  • Place the flour into a large bowl and mix, add the milk mixture, mustard and salt.
  • Knead for 5-10 minutes on a floured surface or in your food mixer with a dough hook for 5 minutes. Cover (I use a hotel shower cap) and leave in a warm place until doubled in size (about 45 minutes).
  • Fry the onion, garlic, bacon and sausage meat over a low heat until soft.
  • When the dough is risen knock it back and flatten out until about the size of a baking tray.
  • Spread the chutney over and then the onion, bacon and sausage mix. Roll up along the long edge to make a dough swiss roll.
  • Slice into 7 pieces and arrange in an oiled 26cm spring form tin – one piece in the middle surrounded with the other 6 slices. Cover and allow to rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 200c / GM6 for about 30 minutes – if you like you can sprinkle some grated cheese over for the last 5 minutes of cooking.
  • Allow to cool for a few minutes, run a knife around the outside of the bread before removing from the tin.
  • Enjoy warm.
