    I had some char siu in the freezer from a previous smoke and I thought I'd make some char siu baos using sweet breed!

    While I was at it is make some sweet bread hamburger buns and a sweet loaf for French toast in the morning...

    The char siu baos were really good. Next time more meat, more sauce and no ginger.

    My daughter wanted a spam and egg sandwich for breakfast:


    The secret recipe for this bread is posted on dirtsailor's thread. For the char siu stuffing I diced up a couple of the fattier pieces I had and sautéed them with ginger, scallions and oyster sauce. Next time no ginger. I think hoisin sauce would probably be better than oyster sauce but I had an open oyster sauce and my hoisin isn't opened yet.

    Are you sure you didn't just run over to the Greenwell Store and buy those? [​IMG]

    Looks Tasty! I know the Sweet bread french toast is a popular item in our household! I like the looks of the char siu baos

    Ever make any Lilikoi Butter to go with the Portuguese Sweet Rolls?

    Not a big fan of lilikoi! The wife and kids like it... The kids know where all of the vines are here. I'm more of a guava or poha type of guy!

    I think I have three or four types growing on my property! Unfortunately the cows like it as well...

    The kids favorite is banana poka which is very similar to lilikoi.

    The commercial variety is purple when ripe. This one is yellow.

    Yeah the project I worked on up above Kona had the same vines you have running a good distance down the driveway.
