It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is CHEDDAR CHEESE BUNS!
After reading on Facebook about someone not being able to find bread during this COVID-19 outbreak, it occurred to me that we might need to find our own alternatives to store-bought bread. I LOVE this recipe. It’s simple and easy to make and immensely satisfying, especially if you’re a cheese aficionado like me.
I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
